No one directs new customers. We were clueless about how to order and how to get down our food after ordering. The cashier girl called Anushika, really needs some lessons on customer care. She blagarded us for no reason.

Visited the place with the family, Ice cream is excellent, never tasted anything like rio. Place is overcrowded and less staffs to manage. We visited two times both times that person who cleans the table was rude, must improve on customer relationship

i have visited both locations and find that the taste and quality are similar. The hot weather during the day in Jaffna makes it more 'wanting'.
