    Boba here is always fresh. In my experience it has never been hard or frozen. Melts in your mouth. Also, sweet potato balls are awesome.

    shaved ice should come w/condensed milk but they put barely any &we asked for a little more &they wantd2charge an extra $1 for it. Yes it's only $1 but it's principle. A can of it is prob$1.

    Expensive and not-so-good-tasting drinks/dessert (& food). But a last resort spot to chillax' (been so for some years now, lol) @ in the area, since every other boba spot closes early

    Their drinks tend to be really sweet so ask for half sugar.... or 1/4 sugar if you're adding boba.

    Not the greatest service but not many Asian places are. Short-ribs are delicious & lychee green milk tea as well.

    Don't listen to the negative reviews this place has the best boba tea! If the service is bad it's just bc you're not Asian or you don't spend enough money here.

    The vegetarian item on the menu is vegetarian until they cook it. Then you might get bonus pork, chicken and other random stuff.

    Honestly the service here is always terrible, they never really seem to care or try even. Only come here because my wife likes the "tea flavored" desserts. It's mostly a meh place though.

    Pricey for milk tea, but it's the best you can get in San Diego.

    Ordered iced Thai tea with boba. Waited 40 minutes. At 35 the server explained that they were making more tea. Hot Thai tea arrived. Decide it wasn't worth complaining about, but wouldn't come again

    They have a new policy from the boss saying every customer has to order a drink. What business does that? shibal

    I wouldn't say the service is horrible but the place gets slammed and the servers scramble to get everyones order, so if you stay for awhile just be polite. A little patience goes a long way.

    Disappointed that the last 2 times drinks were subpar. Green milk tea tasted like water and even after remaking the order it still was poor! Bring back the old people who made the drinks!

    My best tip: don't come here to eat. I came here twice to eat and twice, there were hair in my food. I don't think I will come here to eat anymore. It's too disappointing.

    Fair warning: Don't get me wrong, the place is good for varied flavors of tea & food. After reading the bad reviews over service is mainly cuz they charge an additional $10 sitting fee over 45mins.

    Honestly, this place sucks. it's overpriced, has horrible service and the food isn't even good. I'm only mayor here because my friend insists on coming here to get ripped off everytime we pass by here

    Don't waste your time and money buying a gift card. Stupid card machine can only tell you if there's enough to charge...bit the amount. If it's less than what you're buying it refuses your gift card
