    This isn't just gelato, this is science, in a shop tricked out to look like the best mad scientist's laboratory. Metro gave it 4 out of 5 Stars. Read more

    They may not be real scientists. Super stylish ice-cream, though.

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

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

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

    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.
