With friendly service and an amazing selection of delicious ice cream, you cannot go wrong with Chinatown Ice Cream at all. In all honesty, I love ice cream, and I have tried from many different parlors from all over the city and the selection at CIF dominates all. Their flavors are as exotic as they come and they all taste amazing. My favorite flavor would be ALMOND COOKIE, but I do switch it up many times because you cannot go wrong with any of their flavors. Also, the ice cream is made at the store, so it is always fresh.

Pros: Flavor selection, homemade, damn tasty

I do not hesitate to assert that Chinatown Ice Cream Factory has the best ice cream in NYC, and probably in the world. The portions are really large and you'll never find flavors like this anywhere. The workers are also extremely friendly,not to mention very good looking. The ice cream and the great service are excellent reasons to go to chinatown ice cream factory.

I've been coming to Chinatown Ice Cream Factory for many years. I love coming here because the ice cream is absolutely DELICIOUS.
Another plus is that I know that I am getting a quality prouct because it is a family run business and one member of the family is always there making sure that the quality of their ice cream and service is never less than perfect. Christina already knows my order the moment she sees me coming through the door.
I thought that success family run businesses were extinct in NYC but these guys have proved me wrong.

Yeh, this is as good as it gets. Asian inspired flavors such as Taro, Lychee, Ginger and Red Bean are scrumptous. For those a little less adventurous, the cookies and cream is the best I've ever tasted.

Pros: ice cream

.

I've just discover this place, and this place has so many great flavors! Some of my favorites are lychee, mango and the red bean. But you can't go wrong with any of them.
The only bad thing I can think of is that you have to get there early, or they'll be sold out!

Pros: service, food

So yummy and creamy...they have great standard flavors many unique ones too !

I recommend one scoop with half ginger and half mango...sweet and tangy combo for $2.50. And yes they will do 'half' a scoop - they suggested it to me !!

All these flavors are so unique and so tasty. The flavors inlcude, but not limited, taro, red bean, lichee and almond cookie. There are also ice cream cakes for any occasion. It's just too good for words to describe. For the amount that you spend($2.30), the scoop portions are decent.

This place has some amazing flavors of ice cream. You might be intimidated by some of the more exotic ones at first but what's good is that they allow you a small taste before you buy. You can also mix flavors which is one of my favorites. Experiment, have a good time and enjoy great tasting ice cream. In my opinion, all the flavors are good with lots of rich and mild flavors. The lychee ice cream and almond cookie are two that are my favorites. You might also want to try longan sorbet with vanilla ice cream, or green tea ice cream with lime sorbet. Another great thing is that unlike many other ice cream shops, they don't charge extra for the cone. So skip that boring Haagen Daz on the corner and head on over.

Why should you go and look for this place in Chinatown? It's all about the Almond Cookie and Lychee flavored ice cream. This merits a visit for Ice Cream lovers when you are in Chinatown. With so much flavors to choose from and the creaminess of this delightful treat, it's always a pleasure. I've been sent to Chinatown on lunch time treks just so my recent converts at work can have their fill. The only draw back is that you can never take a pint home not unless you live close by or you are toting a portable cooler with you.

Pros: Variety, Consistent Quality, Unique taste

Cons: Pricey for a Scoop

My husband and I both love the unique flavors offered. Lychee, Red Bean, and Pineapple are among our favorites. Green Tea, however, is very mild in flavor - so if you are looking for the more stronger flavored version often found at Japanese restaurants, you won't like this one. But overall, the quality is great and the staff is friendly.

Pros: Delicious, Natural, Inexpensive

Cons: Location

Real smashed up lychee, mango, longan tropical fruits go into the goods. Their classic chocolate series is also super-smooth and tasty. Gotta love their 70's retro t-shirt... Look for their store banner sporting the same logo of a greedy ice-cream monster...er, Chinese dragon? (Standing room only...)

The unusual flavors are the best here, the let you sample as much as you want. If it weren't all the way in Chinatown, I would take pints home!

when you can come here. Only half a block apart, my choice is always the Factory. There are the yummy tasting regulars like vanilla, chocolate and mint chocolate chip, but they also offer amazingly cool ones, like green tea, lychee and pineapple. The kids that work there are always friendly and attentive. Oh, and you can always ask for a taste in case you're not sure you would dig a whole cup of red bean ice cream. Grab a cup and go pick up some souvenirs on the next block.

Rich, deep flavors. My particular favorite is the ginger, but others like the green tea. For good chowing, have some dumplings at Dumpling House on Eldridge St., then pop on over here for dessert. It isn't healthy, it isn't light, but the flavors are intense and good.

If you're looking for a place to please your taste buds and gratifiy your burning desire for dessert, this tiny place in the middle of Chinatown will tame that flame. All the flavors are great. The chinese fruit flavors are unique and well worth a try. Hey, where else are you going to find homemade lychee and green tea ice cream?
