They’re fighting back.

The New York Daily News reports owner Philip Seid is suing to block his eviction over a water dispute.

“My landlord is just really unbearable,” co-owner Christina Seid, 35, said to The Post.Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory2

“He is doing anything he can to get us out to get a higher rent,” she said of landlord Nolan Cheng.

The shop which is known for its green tea and lychee sorbet has a four star rating on Yelp.

Seid said Cheng began trying to evict them after receiving a summons from the New York Health Department for failure to register a water tower.

Both sides contend the other was required to register the tower.
