This is the third or fourth time we've been here and we can't help coming back to this place. It's a delightful ice cream store. More for taking away than eating in there. They offer a good range of flavours. My fiancé loves the rum and raisin and i really like the salted caramel. Even if you get a small,... More

Absolutely tasteless ice cream. I have ordered chocolate ice cream and it tasted just like water. Never tried anything so bad...I don't know how this place can still be open. Appalling:(

having had a chocolate gelato from a competitor the day before I was expecting a creamy, delicious confection when I purchased a cone here. Instead I got a flavorless, ice laden disappointment.

This place is great. They open quite late, and if we've eaten in a restaurant in Soho we invariably eschew dessert and instead walk round to sample the delights of Lick. Definitely one of the nicest ice cream parlours in London.

After a long day trying to get to the hotel during an Underground strike, my mom and I stopped here after dinner. Ice cream was excellent and the staff was very friendly. They also offer frozen yogurt for those that would rather go that route.

Called in here following dinner in a near by restaurant, vast selection of just divine Gelato, lovely sized portions and toppings and for the area good value for money, well worth a visit, even on a rainy cold night x

For such a small place, their flavours pack a punch! We saw it so went in and there was almost too much choice. So I asked the semi miserable woman working for suggestions. And to her credit, she was SPOT ON with her choices! The watermelon sorbet is 1 of the best ice creams I have had period! What was... More

Very tasty. The choice of flavours all looked tempting - I had the salted caramel in a cone - but not cheap.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
