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

Most well known of the Ice cream parlors in Nallur Jaffna. It's refreshing just like having a ice cream in hot Jaffna sun to see that Rio is maintaining standards over the years. they are now in a more modern building.

I tried the "Mega special" ice cream drink, delicious. Made fresh in visible kitchen and clean place. Worth the money.

They have done up the location. New furniture and inside looks good. Big variety of ice-cream, sundaes and shakes. Their servings are big.

I had a simple, moderate sized vanilla ice cream with some chocolate and nuts. The ice cream is creamy and delicious and the chocolate and nuts were just that little extra. Lots of ice cream dished to choose from! They also have some savoury items - I enjoyed a veggie roll that was delicious. Really excellent!
