“The worse service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

The ice cream is mediocre at best and the customer service is terrible. The managers at the ice cream parlor go out of their way to be rude when you have any concern/complaint. They also have a complete disregard for basic room capacity limits. There was no room to walk because the security person crammed the building to the point that there would be no way to stand without touching anyone else. I wouldn't spend anymore money there ever again. The ice cream isn't worth dealing with deplorable service. The grounds are beautiful but you're not allowed to photograph so that doesn't matter much.

“Really nice ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Ice cream was great. I was greedy and went for 2 scoops which I thought was too big because it started melting so quick and I had to eat really quick so I didn't get to enjoy it as much. Next time I would definitely go for one scoop and savour the moment. Park was lovely too.

I used to visit as a child and remember my ice cream moments. This time I took my dad for his birthday and he is still raving about it.
