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

    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

    It's a fun experience, knowing that they are making it in front of you with liquid nitrogen. Taste wise I'd prefer a proper gelato though, especially for the high price (4,40£ +)

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

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

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