Loved this homely ice cream joint. Delicious ice cream with generous portions and the owner was such a personality. Good chatting with him. He even gave us free tickets to catch the Cricket match that was going on. Made for a memorable day in Galle.

Absolutely clueless staff member. The ice-cream seemed to have thawed and re frozen. It was flakey and powdery.

Amazing homemade ice cream, very friendly and homely service which you don't find everwhere. The passion fruit and Mint choc chip is absolutely fantastic. It can get very hot in the city of Galle, Dairy king provides the perfect energizer! Thank you!
