My family decided to try out Champloo after seeing so many of my friends rave about it. It wasn't too terribly crowded when we got there so we didn't wait very long for our orders. My boyfriend had the Cinnamon Toast Crunch one and my...More

Our daughter introduced us to Champloo this evening after dinner. The rolled ice cream is delicious and the staff was very friendly and happy to tell us all about their unique product. I would recommend Champloo to everyone!!

Hello Lsufa and I'm sorry you had a poor experience. Something must have went terribly wrong as what you described shouldn't happen. Our back room is part of our prep room where we make our drinks and prep Specialty Flavors ice cream. The health department...More

The novelty of the place itself is worth the visit. Handcrafted rolled ice cream and boba tea don the menu. There are a lot of combos but it seemed most appropriate to get Thai tea ice cream which did not disappoint. Two reasons not to...More

If there is such a thing as artisan ice cream, this is it. Beautifully prepared and presented ice creams, unusual for area. Flavors good but less strong than I expected. Interesting to watch the preparation process. Can be crowded and/or echo-y loud, so go for...More
