    The gelato here is worth the lineup. Tried Ashka Mashti (saffron, rosewater, pistachio & cream) and banana bread as recommended, these flavours indeed are amazing. Right texture, not too icy or milky.

    Amazing gelato but definitely not the best in the world and not better than the creamy deliciousness found in Italy. But great for Vancouver with some great flavours and great location.

    Try Akbar Mashti + faloodeh. Trust me you'll love it. I wish they'd give you more considering how expensive it is.The last time I went in they even weighed it. Really?

    Long line that moves quickly. A must-visit. Try the full bloom lavender; it's very flavorful without being too overpowering.

    Not the best. Owner is ripping off people. He may know how to win competitions but he also knows how to rip off the consumer.

    Avoid the waffle cones. They can't handle the gelato that isn't made to proper standards. They're using generic cones. Gelato is not cold enough. It simply melts before you leave the store.

    I think this is some of the best gelato I've ever had! My favs were chocolate with Maldon sea salt, salted hazelnut, amarena cherry, banana bread and Akbar Masti. But you just can't go wrong here!
