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.

The boutique is so aesthetically pleasing that it uplifts your entire experience here. The service is quick and the servers are polite. You only get to taste 2 flavours per person so it’s hard to choose. I went with the pistachio and the black sesame...gelato- safe choices since I already love these flavours. Both were good but nothing I would go out of my way for again. From my friend’s picks I also tried the chocolate sorbet, the gianduja chocolate and the coconut, the last one being my least favourite. It’s definitely a one time visit but just that.More

Saturday 6.30. Many random flavours and asked to try one. Was told you can’t sample on a weekend. The sign read cannot sample on weekend for better waiting experience. The store was empty.

WHAT A JOKE ! THE WORKERS ARE SO RUDE ! We came as a family in this little gelato shop and had been promised one of the best ice creams in Singapore. As we came in we didn’t feel welcome and as I asked to...try the “osmanthus pear” flavor, one of the three ladies snapped and told me: “we don’t give samples today” and looked at me like I was trying to rob their place. We ended up paying more than 10 SGD per person for 2 ice cream balls. After tasting the 6 different flavors we had taken, none was really worth the price. The flavors don’t even last long and are very subtle - almost too much if you don’t pair your flavors the right way. To summarize it all, DON’T BOTHER COMING - you’ll be disappointed. fyi - I put one star because TripAdvisor didn’t let me put zero stars.More

One of the best gelatos in SG. I tried the dark chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut, and black sesame flavors and were impressed by all. Perhaps the chocolate one was not as outstanding as Godiva's or Venchi's, but still I was indulged. They provided me with really...large round scoops, great!More

A mile long queue - and for what? This has the be the ultimate Emperor without Clothes eatery. They say that if a place is busy it must be good. But in the case of this ice cream parlour - it's a complete con. They...serve possibly the worst ice cream I've ever had. Not just the ridiculous flavours but also the awful texture. Who could possibly want to eat lemongrass flavoured ice cream? Thai food is probably my favourite but lemongrass ice cream - I'd rather be waterboarded. The chrysanthemum tea ice cream was no better. If I hanker for that taste I'd like it as Chinese tea. Guys, wake up and smell the coffee!More

They had run out of cones by 8pm on a Saturday. They didn't inform me of this before I ordered. I asked them why not make more, and got a really stupid non answer. On a busy night! I ended up paying $5 for an...underserve of gelato that wasn't all that good. $6 gives you twice the amount in a cone. No thanks, I should have trusted my instinct and stopped at the Macca's dessert window at Bugis. $3.50 for a better ice cream and twice the amount. I will do so in future and urge you to follow.More

When thoughts of an after-dinner dessert hit us recently, having a gelato seemed like a good idea. Conveniently, this very well regarded (so well regarded it's been recognised in the local Michelin guide) gelato parlour was up the street from where we were. We recognised...the place from the short queue that had formed outside the entrance, a consequence of pandemic safety measures undoubtedly. It's most well-known for their plant-based flavours but the ones with fruit combination flavours are also recommended. Not having been there before, I opted for a scoop each of spiced pear and lychee raspberry, both of which did not disappoint. Indeed, despite the somewhat exotic combinations, the crispness of the flavours really came through with each spoonful. It wasn't hard to understand why it's one of the food highlights in the east of the island.More

The staff seems to be in a hurry to chase us out, staring at us when we weren’t ready to order. Moreover, they started badmouthing us when we were leaving, obviously trying to let us hear it. Ice cream is supposed to cheer people up...but the opposite happened.More

There is a wide range of ice cream, but no tasting is allowed due to social distancing measures. Definitely ordered the waffle with ice cream because it makes the ice cream taste even better. Went in the late afternoon, so only had a couple of...people ahead of us before we could order. Ordered the double scoop with waffle and it costs us $9. It is a little bit expensive but worth it.More
