We have stayed in Galle for only two days and visited Dairy King twice. The shop is tiny, with two stools and forms the front of a family home. On the first visit, we arrived to find Mr Dairy King providing comprehensive tourist information to some Chinese visitors, and he then explained to us that his wife makes the ice cream herself, and he sells it. Unfortunately on that day, the cinnamon had sold out, so we returned the second day and he happily put some aside for us until we went up the street for dinner. When we arrived back, we sat for a few minutes and heard him playing with his children. It was a lovely moment to enjoy Sri Lankan family life. The ice cream is incredible - the cinnamon is particularly special, but we also enjoyed chocolate and butter toffee. This ice cream is well refrigerated and made with love. Definitely recommended!

Mr. Dairy King accosted us at the junction towards the ramparts where he was standing with his bicycle. He convinced us to try out the ice creams saying "Dairy King" was an international brand! I had not hear of it, and he showed shock at my ignorance! When I told him it tasted just like a local brand of ice cream, he told me, if I want original ice cream to come to him and if not go elsewhere. He was quite a character! I visit for the entertainment!

It is a tiny establishment, and the ice cream sundaes and milk shakes looked as if they were in generous portions.

A scoop of chocolate ice cream was Rs.40. And worth it on a hot day.
