Restaurant details
Good for: Romantic, Child-friendly
Dining options: After-hours, Breakfast, Delivery
Description: Although situated on a busy street in the heart of Ho Chi minh city, the Fanny parlor still stands out from a crowd with the "light pink pearl" image: luxurious, modern and fascinating. The airy terrace which overlooks the main street will bring you full sunshine throughout the day. After a while, you also enjoy over thirty different natural flavours such as Japanese Green Tea, Macadamia Vanilla, Belgian Dark Chocolate, Vietnamese young rice, Cinnamon, Anise, Raspberry, Durian, etc. It considers one of the ideal places where tourists from around the world will stop by.

Over $5 for ice cream in Saigon?! Yes it had a nice presentation, but the ice cream itself is mediocre by western standards. Not creamy. Not recommended.

Fanny's Ice Cream is the place to be. Or so we were told. "The best Ice Cream in Vietnam." That king of recommendation is hard to beat. We had to try it.

We stopped in for dessert after having dinner upstairs at the Temple Club (which was also hyped). Fanny's has an entire menu that specializes in a variety of creations made with traditional and exotic ice cream flavors. The photos and descriptions sounded amazing. After perusing the large menu of selections, we settled on a couple of choices that ran about four or five dollars US. That is kind of pricey for Vietnam. You can get an entire meal for that in some places.

Well, actually, we waited quite a while to be served before we actually placed our orders. Then we waited again for them to be delivered. The service seemed a bit slow. Particularly considering they weren't very busy. There were two other people sitting outside like we were, and only a couple inside as well.

The dessert looked phenomenal. It was very classy in appearance. And very appealing. Unfortunately, the flavors just weren't there. It was okay, don't get me wrong. But it looked a lot better than it tasted. It was just average ice cream in my book. Too average to pay what we paid for it. I would not pay that much in the US for anything similar. To be sure.

Overall, the place looks nice, the ice cream creations were diverse, huge selection, but slow service and average quality made the price seem excessive.

It's a good place to enjoy premium ice-cream in HCMC, very delicious ice-cream. Need to taste ice-cream here when you go to Vietnam

Great dessert!! They look nice and taste nice. Sad that the ice cream buffet only offers on First & Last Friday of each month that I cannot try this time.
