    They get extremely busy during lunch time. Make a reservation to avoid long wait.

    Look for Jonathan. One of the best servers I've had and just to let you know, I'm very picky.

    Great food and tea. One of my favorite spots. Unfortunately, extremely slow service at lunch. Also, eat outside. The acoustics inside are deafening.

    Lunch will be busy. Call ahead of time and ask for a reservation. They're definitely on my speed dial 😊

    The napa rolls are outstanding and you can't go wrong with tofu or chicken. The peanut sauce is superb

    The cheese plate is excellent, as is the selection of teas. Almost too many to decide! Our waiter was knowledgeable and personable. Great place to relax.

    The Big Red Robe Oolong is pricey, but worth it. They also have a great selection of Anxi ball style oolongs like Tieguanyin. Great stuff.

    The coffee here is way better than the Starbucks next door for about the same price. Fresh when you order, taste is as smooth as a baby's bottom.

    Fresh, healthy, eco friendly, with tons of vegetarian options. Totally worth the drive to North ATX.

    Delicious food and ridiculously attentive service. Had a flashback to Portlandia when the server confirmed yogurt of Bulgarian origin would be acceptable.

    Don't bother reserving a table because they probably won't remember to hold it for you.
