“Escape from the heat and chill your insides”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

I have been a frequent visitor of this icecream parlour.......two menus to choose from with pictures of the ice cream creations to leave you trying to decide which to try first! A glass of cooled (and safe) water is offered on arrival by staff that remind you of a diner somewhere in 1950s America. The ice cream treats do not disappoint and are a welcome chiller to your insides after the heat of Thailand....
The parlour I have visited is within Centra Mall, Phuket and I have also spent some time in the one outside the mall at Patong. This one is in its own building and the air conditioned blast as you enter is very welcoming! The staff here thank you for coming when you're leaving........a nice touch.

“THANK YOU”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

We never ate ice cream this good. Great selection and toppings. Thailand is not complete if you don't try swensens ice cream which is also very cheap.

“Deliciousness.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Make sure you pay a visit to Swensens. Their ice cream is wonderful. Other places like Baskin Robins taste like the ice cream has melted and refrozen; not so at Swensens.
Try the Green Tea ice cream: definately a highlight.

“Fantastic taste for ice-cream lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We first met Swensens in Central Festival in Phuket with the recommend of travellers throught internet. It was great for value. We ordered an ice-cream hot pot costed $3XX baht, very good price. Later when we travelled in Chiangmai, we visited to the three branches there in Airport Plaza, Khad HXXX Plaza, and Central Plaza. We became fans of Swensens now! Now in Chiangmai it was doing 'strawberry in love' promotion for a glass with two balls just 69Baht, cheers!
