“Rio Ice Cream taste great”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

It is nice to have a better quality of Ice cream specially when some large scale manufacturers compromise on quality. I was able taste Rio Ice cream after a few decades & found that their quality was still above the other local manufacturers. The price was slightly higher but the quality was far better than Carnival, Cargills, EH, & Kotmale. My Kids love the Blueberry, Mango & Pineapple. The creaminess is not fluffy but heavy, which proves that the milk has more fat in it. I enjoy the taste of Rio Ice cream & am also happy as they have opened an outlet at Colombo 06.

“Very good!”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

On your way to Nallur Kovil don't miss this Coolest spot in Jaffna! They sell their own Ice Cream. (Very sugary stuff though). Price is reasonable.
I wish the management could introduce Low / No sugar versions for the health concerned and elderly.

Highly recommend to visit this place

“A taste of Rio Ice cream”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We visited this much talked about ice cream parlor during our visit to Jaffna this August. They have a wide selection of ice creams in their menu. The portions are quite generous & very reasonably priced compared to ice creams available in Colombo. The flavour is also quite different to the ice creams sold in Colombo.

“The best ice cream in the country!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Been to Rio Jaffna three times. When the place is not crowded and the ice cream is freshly scooped there is nothing quite like it. When the place is crowded to the point of standing room only, they give you pre-frozen ice cream which is like rock, similar to what you get in Colombo. Rock solid or not its still the best ice cream in the country for the best price!
