The ice cream was good not the best but nice and worth the experience. The line up is fascinating and gave us a giggle. We went here at night time and then explored the French Quarter which made for a nice night out

It's not Italian gelato but the ice cream tastes good and very cheap at 12k VND for a cone. However, the service is really really unfriendly. I didn't have the right change ready and she grunted and pointed to the sign. Also, as others have said, it's pretty unhygienic. Scooters can drive right in and the whole place in general... More

As we walked passed this place was packed, not one to miss out we ventured in. The ice cream was extremely cheap and refreshing, however not for my palate.

Probably one of the best ice cream places I have tried in Hanoi. It is especially nice after walking half an hour, and you're drenched in sweat because the weather is so hot. So you go and devour a cheap eat ice cream. We tried many flavours: Vanilla, taro, green tea mochi ice-cream, and strawberry mochi ice-cream. Their cones are... More

This place is insanely popular with the locals, with loads of bikes and scooters parked inside the premises, for the riders stopping by to grab a quick ice cream before hitting the road again. You can get ice cream on a cone, or traditionally on a stick. We had two ice creams on a stick, each for 7000-8000VND (Crazy cheap).... More

I don't like this place, ice-cream is cheap however, you will have to face unfriendly staffs The place is full of smelly rotten ice-cream (dropped on the floor - or rubbish bin) Fly is everywhere, even some can find them inside their ice-cream

This is not a great place for ice cream since the staffs here are terrible. They must learn how to serve their gests in the best way such as how to answer the guest's question. The ice cream here is quite nice but staffs' attitude is very bad. There are many other places serving nicer ice cream and nice staffs.

You've gotta get to this place when in Hanoi. It's where all the locals come to hang out and eat icecream while sitting on their motorbikes - from young couples, teenagers and families. Try both the icy blocks of tasty kem (only 7k VND) - which come in delicious chocolate, coconut, young sticky rice - and I think another couple... More
