Ideal Ice cream parlour is always a pleasure to visit. The ambiance is cosy and inviting. Whether in summer or any other time, it is a must visit place. I make it a point to go there with my mother everytime I am in town and enjoy the Banana Split combo. The prices are reasonable when compared with other joints.

We couldn't ever think of a visit to Mangalore without thinking of the Ideal Icecream Parlour! That's the mesmerism of the Ideal icecreams! Its Gadbad leads of course.... For both my children, IDEAL brings in very strong flavours of their childhood, when Choco Dad, Gadbad, Parfait, American Choconuts, Banana Split, Dilkush etc were household names, for we lived in Mangalore...

Ideal is just another word for Ice cream in mangalore. If you visit Mangalore and never tasted ideal ice cream, you can consider it as a big time loss. This is the must do stuff in Mangalore.

Place is literally heaven for Ice Cream Lovers. There are so many flavors that you will be literally spoilt if one is a regular. Try Gadbad for sure, it must be their signature. Once you have ice creams at Ideal you wont feel like leaving the place. They also offer fruit juices, milk shakes and snacks.

A Unique ice cream parlour offering a variety of ice cream at very economical rate. Persons travelling from North should definitely have Gadbad and Dilkush ice creams
