“Absolutely worth the wait!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

There will be a long line in the evenings and weekends but I would suggest doing yourself a favour! The first time I went there with my girlfriend I said that I would never wait in that line?! Oh I am so glad she made me wait! Enjoy !

Reviewed January 23, 2013

The most ridiculously good ice cream ever I think the reviews on here say it all.

Just take the time out to try it!

“Yum!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I want to book a flight back to Sydney just so I can get a scoop of the Bounty flavored Ice Cream! :)

It was the perfect desert after a delicious meal in Spice I Am down the street.

“great selection of flavours”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Unfortunately I have been spoilt for gelati by having sampled it al over Italy. However This place impressed me by its selection of flavours which are innovative. It has a good balance of fruit flavours which are always my favourites, and chocolate, coffee, caramel type flavours. If you are looking for a sweet, I certainly found it good value and worth a try. The staff serving were great. We had a large party of 9 and they were very patient serving us and waiting for flavour selections. Its just a pity there is no dedicated seating in the vicinity.

“Bloody delicious - come to the Northside please”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Some of the best ice cream in Sydney. Do yourself a flavour - join the crowds at night in Surry Hills, drive past the one in Darlinghurst or drop into the one at the Casino. All scrumdiddidlyumptious. More please.
