    Ice cream made with liquid nitrogen! Vanilla and Valrhona chocolate always available plus two imaginative changing flavours - the heather honeycomb topping is lovely.

    Absolutely everything they make here will cause an explosion of your taste buds. Owners are wonderful people who's always changing up their flavors with things you would never even dream of using!

    The faster you freeze the ice-cream the creamier it becomes. On that basis Chin Chin provides the most delicious product with spectacular taste by instantly freezing it with liquid nitrogen! Cash only

    London oozes culinary creativity and it isn’t restricted to formal dining tables. Down a cobblestoned street in Camden, you’ll find Europe’s first liquid nitrogen ice cream bar, Chin Chin Labs. Read more

    Pretty good ice cream, but definitely not worth waiting in line for. The nitrogen is just a gimmick/novelty, it really doesn't make it taste or feel much different that regular ice cream

    Superb ice-cream, beautiful flavour and incredibly smooth texture. The whole theatre of making it with liquid nitrogen made it a special visit. I'll be going back for sure.

    Pineapple choc-chip flavor is delish. Can't mix flavors and price for this includes one topping OR one sauce. Additional sauces or toppings cost extra. Cash only.

    This place is AMAZING! The flavors constantly change so if you're lucky, get the purple basil choco-chip with truffle chocolate crumble. Then order a second. Repeat.

    Great ice cream, made with big tanks of liquid nitrogen. Dunno how big of an effect it has on the taste, but it was good. Had a classic chocolate one

    Awesome ice cream, worth the cue but a little bit overpriced for a small portion. Pineapple one is amazing!

    A bit pricey but one of the most smoothest ice cream ever. Made with liquid nitrogen it's quite a treat.

    Most ice cream is made slowly, in a freezer. Not here. The laboratorists freeze ice cream to order using liquid nitrogen. Read more

    Nice icecream, quirky process. At the end of the day though, it's still just icecream.

    Ahrash Akbari-Kalhur and wife Nyisha Weber own the place - "chin chin" means "cheers", it's not Nyisha's name as is commonly thought!

    Yediğimiz dondurma olmamalı zira dondurma dediğin biraz tatlı olur, çikolatalı dondurma fazla bitter ancak cookieler gerçekten başarılı anca 5,5£ fazla pahalı
