The flavors range from familiar to exotic (like lychee) at this compact ice-cream shop.- Google
"My personal favorites are Black Sesame, Red Bean and Lychee flavors."
"There were an extensive list of ice cream and sorbet flavors."

Wide selection of traditional and uniquely flavored ice cream. Quality is excellent. Staff are friendly. Prices are high but worth it. Their ice cream cakes are a surprising value and always a hit at a party.

If in Chinatown on a hot NYC summer day there is nowhere better than here. The small tight ice-cream parlour offers some to the best ice cream flavors Asian style. Nowhere in the city will you find Lychee sorbet/ice cream or durian flavors except here (my two favorite flavors). The service is quick unless you are one of those annoying tourist who can’t decide and just stand there hold up everyone in line. Ice cream, ice cream everyone screams for ice cream!

I got the red bean (not too sweet but also not too flavorful) as well as the pandan (SO GOOD). My friend got the lychee (so good) and the green tea (also so good, not too strong or sweet). Staff were so helpful and friendly and let us sample more than a few.

landmark in its own right. It's here you'll find all different flavors of ice cream from Green Tea and Lychee to Durian and Long An of course with the popular flavors of Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry. What I like most about this place is the drawing of the Dragon that has never changed since it's over 30 years in business. Though it is certainly a place of interest for tourist, its just as frequented by Chinatown natives. Depending on season, I would say go anytime on weekdays or after 8p on weekends so the wait won't be so long. Mixing of flavors is highly recommended but if you choose a flavor such as green tea which has almost no sweet taste and can be bitter, then you'll want to let the cream slowly melt on your tongue instead continuously slurping. Simply put it, if you're curious but not certain of the taste, either ask for a sample or ask how it tastes. From what I've seen since Chinatown Ice Cream Factory has been very instrumental in popularizing ice cream flavors that are not so popular outside Asia. Keep up the good work and I'm confident they won't start making it more expensive than it has to be like HaagenDazs or Ben & Jerry for the sake of tourist.

Creative ice cream you will not find anywhere else in the city. The quality never disappointed me nor does the flavors they make. Try the black sesame which was flavorful and unique! Any out of towners must stop by to complete the Chinatown experience.

This is the best place for an asian ice cream flavor. To do something unique chinatown + to get a flavor like taro or black sesame, this is the spot

Lots and lots of Asian-inspired ice cream flavors. I sampled a handful of them (Red Bean, Black Sesame, Pandan, and Taro). I ended up getting the Pandan and Taro together and it was an amazing combination. Their ice cream tastes very true to the original flavors!

Great flavors. Green tea and lychee cone was the cat's pajamas on a hot night in Chinatown!
