    Excellent bubble tea--not overly sweet like most other places.

    Loved this place! The bubble tea wasn't as good as the food, but that's okay. Ask for add on recommendations. I want to go back and try their whole menu! So, so delicious.

    Friendly service and tasty meals. This Koriente curry ($8,5 w/ egg) brought me comfort in a cloudy day!

    The curry here is good, but it's NOT like Thai or Indian curries! It's more of a stew. The staff and owner are top notch people and I will return on my next trip to Austin!

    My favorite restaurant: food is healthy and delicious, the employees are so helpful and sweet. Line to order is long, but SO worth the wait. We got the garden handroll with tuna and the Mahi Mahi.

    Vegetarian friendly and delicious. If you order boba here, know that it is less sweet than other places in town. To me, that's a plus.

    First time I had the spicy chicken, probably the worst quality I've had. Very tough and borderline hard. Gave it another chance and got Obake B. Terrible also. No idea how this place is rated so high.

    From the menu it doesn't seem too intriguing and actually sounds like typical Asian American food. But it turned out to be quite tasty. The owner was very nice to give us some add-ons on the house.
