This is a small ice cream shop in the middle of chinatown. I hear that it's famous ,in a tourist kind of way... don't know much about that. They have some interesting flavors like lychee, but they also have all the usual flavors (chocolate, vanilla, etc...). I had banana and chocolate on a cone. It was $7.50... I think it's a little overpriced for ice cream. The service was quick and friendly. The ice cream was good, but nothing out of this world.

So many different flavors, and they're all so good! A pretty small place inside, so more of a "get your ice cream and go" type of place. Homemade ice cream that's kind of creamy, overall a great place!

I love ice cream, so naturally I had to try out this highly reviewed little shop on my last day visiting NY. I got the pandan flavor and almond cookie ice cream. Both were good and tasted as they should. My only suggestion is that the almond cookie toppings should've been crushed more rather than having it in such big chunks...wasn't really easy breaking it with a plastic spoon.

I tried the durian, Thai tea, and sesame peanut butter flavors. The durian flavor pretty much tasted like durian which I enjoyed, and it didn't carry the smell. Thai tea was perhaps too subtle after the intense durian flavor. Finally, sesame peanut butter was an excellent combination. It is wonderful to see so many different flavors that are mostly successful and I'll definitely be back to try some more. The only negative thing is perhaps the shoddy storefront and presentation, but the ice cream, which is really what matters, is excellent.

My plan was to swing by the ice cream shop and just grab a quick cup to go. I did not expect to awkwardly loiter around the cramped shop corner for a whole HOUR JIZZING over my three cups of black sesame/lychee/taro/red bean (it didn't really taste like red bean but still good). Little girls behind the counter must've thought I just escaped from fat camp jail.

This place definitely has interesting flavors, such as sesame and durian. However, it didn't impress me much. Additionally, the location is extremely cramped.

Located right in the heart of NYC's Chinatown, this is a nice place to try new flavors that are rarely seen in your typical ice cream shop. My favorites are the taro and lychee flavors. The lychee ice cream has little chopped up chunks of lychee fruit in it and it's very refreshing. It's a little expensive for a small scoop, but you're coming here for the chance to try a different/new flavor.

This place sounds great. As much as I'm down here I've never made it here. But they get four stars just on the fact it's ice cream and original.
