“Nice ice cream”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Nice ice cream, good service, classy interior, pleasantly cool inside. Don't forget cash - they don't accept credit cards.

“Delicious Ice cream but on small scoop given”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

This place serve wide range of icecream choise & few of the favour we choose are delicious.
However we found the portion (scoop) is pretty small size, would prefer with bigger scoop but with higher price.
You can request to sample some ice cream to help you decide on the favour.

The service can be improve as we are rush for decision of the favour & treated rudely while ordering the ice cream.
There is a cockroach running around near the counter while we are having our ice cream, I think management should seriously look into the infestation issue in the shop.

Samero2010, Owner at Samero's Icecream Paradise, responded to this review, June 13, 2013
Sorry but we have to correct this review with a statement:
We sell Gelato- not American Ice cream. Gelato is very dense and has almost no air inside- not like American Ice cream which as 50% air whisked into it. Which leads to bigger scoops but nothing inside your mouth.
Our scoops are 70- 80gr size- which is the same than a standard Walls magnum (86gr).
We do offer many different flavors so customer can mix many together.

If you think our scoop is to small and to cheap... well order another one!
The accusation of "1 cockroach infestation near our counter" let me clarify this comment.
"infestation"- refers to the state of being invaded or overrun by pests or parasites We are very well aware of cleanliness and hygienically top conditions necessary to produce Gelato and using a lot of our daily routine to keep that issue on top of our list. And we can proudly say that with all Shops in Patong we are in the TOP ranking of cleanliness! But I guess as you felt not treated very well by selecting your flavors you had to try to right something bad. Thanks for this comment

“The best ice cream”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The best ice cream ever...... it s a small place for really good icecreams.... the place is a bit out of the way, but not difficult to find. Anyone looking for this place, just ask for Patong Hospital, and its before the hospital, coz as a tourist you might get lost looking for this place. We came for ice cream everyday.......

“Amazing place and ice cream for down to earth normal people”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Ok, so after reading many reviews i decided to try this place.
Especially i read all the bad reviews, so i would know what to look out for.
I usually don't have time or willingness to write reviews, but this place won me over, so ill break this review by parts:

The place:
Its a relatively small shop, NOT on the busiest part of town.
Its set up nicely, with plenty of small "details" that make it the best it could be, clean toilets, newspapers and magazines, AC, etc...

I will say this over and OVER again: it is crucial to understand the environment to be able to fairly judge this place in ANY dimension whether price, quality of product, location, etc...
Those who do not understand Phuket, Patong, or Thailand, or the surrounding environment should educate themselves before issuing a review.

Product:
I believe there is ice-cream, and there is everything else...
Lets call the rest frozen deserts, or artificial flavored treats or whatever you want.
And i myself have them from time to time. Swenswen's, Ette, and many others, so i DO know the difference.
This place sells ICE CREAM.
There's no way this place can be compared to any commercially produced frozen desert.
The flavor stands out and speaks for itself.

Now again; lets be reasonable and understand that "liking" something, especially when it comes to food, is a matter or acquired taste. That means you'll be more likely to like what you grew up having, or the flavors that you are more acquainted with.
That explains that some people believe McDonalds have the tastiest burgers on earth, and in fact, to them, they do.
So please: if you are NOT accustomed to having proper ice cream, or if you grew up on ice cream from Seven Eleven, etc theres a chance you might not like proper ice cream... please don't take it off on this shop.

Price:
Most things on the menu that i saw ranged from 80 to 300 baht...
Again: understand Patong, Phuket, etc.
What gets me is the people that complain about it being expensive but pay 220 baht for a Lady drink around the corner, thousands for a room, 350 for a burger at BKK burger Company, or 100 baht to take a picture with an iguana or a weird looking monkey...

This is proper food, healthy, made with actual fruit.
Try buying a mango in Patong and you'll see its about 50 baht for a single one.
Now go to Seven and buy a carton of milk...
Factor in labor, electricity, know-how,... Please; get real.
But 100 baht for a picture with a big iguana is damn cheap isnt it?

Dont get me wrong, i loved the burgers from BKK Company... And the 550 baht steak from Buffalo's steak house...
But i wouldn't dare whine about the price. After all nobody forced me to have it.
It seems people have money to spare in women and alcohol with no regard but when it comes to ice cream they are so particular about their budget.

Understanding the place helps for a fair review. I also don't agree with the people that give 4 stars because "they also had amazing ice cream in Italy"... Or god knows where...
Yeah, well, so did i.
But for someone searching places in the area for desert flying to Italy ain't an option is it...?
So this place is the best "available", thus it earns all 5 stars.

I would advice people with extremely high standards, not only not to visit this place, but furthermore, not to visit ANY place in Patong beach.
Having that said, this place is among the nicest i've visited while i was there.
Keep up the great work guys!
