Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had the amazing chocolate sorbet for 75.000 Dong. Very expensive, but worth the visit if one misses European ice cream in hot Ho-Chi-Minh City! They even have ice cream bowls.

They make great Gelato sundaes and the staff provide quick and courteous service. There is a decent selection of gelatos, brownie sundaes and they can do specialty ones as well.

We love gelato and very much enjoyed our stop at Ralf’s. He is passionate about gelato and rightly so, because it was delicious. I was disappointed not to be able to try the fish sauce flavour as it wasn’t there, but had the cinnamon flavour...which was divine. Raif and his wife were lovely, great service and cool way to beat the heat. My only (very slight) issue was it was expensive. Definitely a treat to only have once in HCMC.More

Our group of 14 (including kids) stopped in for gelato in the evening and the staff was fantastic. They brought out extra chairs, offered water with lemon and, of course, the gelato was great. Some distinctly Asian flavors were available like fish sauce and black...sesame. Ralf made time to speak with us and we recommend highly.More

My wife and I stopped here for gelato with our three children a few nights ago. When we sat down to order the proprietress asked us to get our gelato to go so that our children wouldn't disturb the other customers. There was a total...of one other customer in the establishment at that time. We left and headed down the street to Baskin-Robbins where we received the expected level of service. I don't know if Ralf's is looking to position itself as a child-free gelato shop but the treatment we received was appallingly rude and unprofessional.More

Coming from Europe and been trying so many ice cream from Italy, this place is definitely not worth a visit. Not sure why other comments are so positives about this place, maybe because there are not that many options for ice cream in Vietnam (surprisingly)....Ice cream is good but charging almost 3.7 euros for one scoop and 5 euros for 2 scoops without anything else except 1 small glass of water is absolutely unacceptable in a country where you can have a full meal for less than 2 euros! Additionally the place has no charm and doesn't invite for staying longer. I would rather have a fresh fruit juice for 1 euro and a scoop of ice creamMore

I had 2 scoops: Tonka Bean and Marou Chocolate, tasted the Fish Sauce Gelato. Who knew one scoop is illegal in the U.S. I asked what brought a German to Vietnam to make Italian Gelato. He moved to Vietnam for love, his wife works with...him, and works for the love of making gelato from scratch. This resulted in a fabulous conversation on all things gelato and the differences between semi-processed, used by many, and raw ingredients, which he only uses. Farm-to-Table concept applied to Gelato...more like Lab-to-Cone/Cup in 5 metres! His Gelato R&D and production are in the back, which I had the pleasure of having a tour of. So, you might find better tasting, cheaper Gelato, but you won't find Gelato that is this freshly made. He is a one-man Gelato factory! Yes, it is not that cheap (similar to Fanny's), but quality products never are. So, please don't confuse a Gelato dispensary with a real Gelateria. So, after visiting Ben Thanh market, Bui Vien, or Chill Skybar, treat yourself to some great, and the freshest, Gelato you can find in HCMC/Vietnam. It was a great pleasure to meet a real artisan, hard to find in this mass-produced product world, practicing his craft and passion of Gelato! So, grab a scoop or two, and learn about Gelato from a master.More

I’ve been to all the famous ice cream shop / gelato places in town.. this is by far the best. The friendly German owner is passionate about creating the best tasting ice cream & it for sure is! Try the coconut or matcha flavor :)

The best ice cream/gelato in Saigon/HCMC, Vietnam. Every handmade flavor uses the freshest natural ingredients. No artificial dyes, flavors, or chemicals here! If you need a refreshing break from the Saigon heat, Ralf’s Artisan Gelato is the perfect choice. Each week there are new flavors,...you’ll never run out of choices! My favorite flavors are cinnamon, mint chocolate, hazelnut, and orange blossom.More
