Another highly overrated place with average icecream. Was disappointed as we went there out of our way and that too in rain. Sitting arrangement was closed at 9:30PM itself, that too in rain which added to the disappointment. You can skip this place.

This is practically an institution when it comes to ice creams in Mangalore. The huge lines to get in are a testament to this fact. The ice creams are yummy and the service is really quick. Don't miss the Gadbad and Tiramisu ice creams. All at a reasonable price.

Ideal ice cream is pretty popular in Mangalore. The parlour in Hampankatte is well made. The famous "Gadbad" ice cream of Dakshina Kannada District is available here and it was good. The only problem I faced was that there is no parking place for even one car.

Both pabbas and ideal ice cream have the same menu. I think they both are the same operating in different names. Wide variety of icrecreams.and reasonably priced too. Must visit if you are in Mangalore
