Went for a faluda to their place on Victoria street. After seeing great reviews online. The falooda should have had a bit more rooh afza, it didn't have any dry fruits, and no fruits at all! Otherwise okay if you aren't too fussy. After buying 4 regular faloodas for £4 each. You still get charged 50p for a spare/extra empty... More

What's not to like about homemade gelato? Had lunch and this place was right next door. Small place, plenty of flavors to choose from. Dod yourself a favor and get the cookie mixed into your gelato. They bake the cookie right in the back and then mix that into whatever flavor you choose. Worth the wait

Went last weekend and was so nice I went back again the next day to try other flavours. On Saturday evening I had a tub with a scoop of pomegranate sorbet and a scoop of mojito sorbet. Both excellent and refreshing after a curry we had nearby and a bit of a walk Next day was warm so I went... More

Love the ice cream here. It's thick, smooth and creamy like ice cream should be with lots of flavour. Can't resist popping in whenever I'm passing by.

Went with friends. We wanted to try a different place. I ordered Faluda and rest of them order ice cream but it was really really nice. I wasn't expecting to be that good. I was really surprised. And we went back again for Faluda.

I always get cookie dough, nutella, a scoop of ice cream & whipped cream. Sickening but unbeatable! Pricey but worth it for a treat now and then.

A wide variety of ice creams to choose from, almost too much for such an indecisive person as me! The guy working was really friendly and patient with me and let me try a few flavours as I couldn't decide if I was in a chocolate or fruit mood. My fiance ordered the brownies with a scoop of tablet ice... More

Such a wide variety of ice cream flavours to choose from as well as toppings. There was also plenty of choice regarding how to have it- tub or cone. Ice cream was not all that was offered either. Very lovely place and great quality.

Thank Leanne P
