Clever concept, fantastic service, and an essential treat on any visit to Auckland. But at the end of the day this is just ice-cream - good ice cream, but very expensive and very messy. What you are paying for is the picture of you holding up an elaborate dessert covered in all sorts of extras, and the occasional architectural wonder.

Service is superb, so don't be put off by the small queues. Staff roam the line, handing out menus, explaining how you put together your ice cream, then taking down your choices, and quickly delivering. And when you get your ice cream they freely hand out wipes to clean up the mess as your elaborate creation gradually disintegrates.

Their kiwi fruit ice cream is very delicious and the kiwi fruit is very thick. Highly recommend but not good value for money.

The service is great! Prepare to queue for at least 15mins to get serve. They will prepare 5/6 decent sample for you to try before deciding which one to go for. Lots of selections of cones. Price is bit on the high side.

The ice cream was good. But they take presentation to the extreme, and the price is extreme in response. Good ice cream, but quite $$$.
