Ah Bubble World, sugar?

Definately well known enough to have a place in Surrey and still be so busy. As one would expect, basic fun, bubblely atmosphere. Pretty basic, no frills stuff. Its one of the better options in Surrey whenever I'm visiting my friends. They've got to cut back on that sweet sugar of theirs though. Sometimes asking for half sweet isn't even enough. Their food is pretty decent if you're okay with the quick and simple MSG stuff.

This place was pretty cool in their decor with their trendy and rustic approach. They've got quite the selection of teas. All smell amazing. My favourite was the orange oolong. The service definately needs improvement. Felt a little hasty in their service even though it wasn't busy. Doesn't quite fit in with the whole relaxing tea atmosphere. Still, it is definately worth trying. One thing I noted though. They use coffee presses for making their teas and let it sit there until the customers finish. Don't some teas like green tea have a limited steeping time or they go bitter?-Just a thought.

I don't know what's happening with their locations, but I've been to the one on Denman a few times to try them out. Sure they have a selection of teas but their drinks could use some work. I've tried several teas on their own and each time got some sort of residual tea taste probably left over from the last customer's tea. Not something that I would expect from a place held so high in standard. As for their matcha? I was disappointed that they didn't whisk matcha like they did before. Would have been nice to see something more authentic.

One of my co-workers recommended this place right across Metrotown for its freshness. I was not impressed. The service was very poor and rude. It was busy but there were at least three servers standing around doing nothing. When it was our turn to pay, we were not greeted with any respect. They literally took our money and shoved the change to us as if to say they're always very busy to talk to you. As for the food, it was not as fresh as it could have been. Salmon sashimi - not hard to identify what's fresh and what's not - was very chewy and flavourless. Not something worth a second visit.

Certainly not my choice for coming back. My friends and I were doing our usual restaurant hopping and decided to try this place out. I got the honey green tea cause I figure it a safe bet. It was sastisfactory at most. My friend unfortunately got their oolong milk tea. I tried it and we were both disappointed. She's loves oolong tea and what they served her was anything but. It was bland and you can't taste the tea, purely milky powder. I guess it would pass for someone used to more powder than the real stuff. My other friend ordered their marianated beef or something that looked like beef - really dry and bland. If you want something better, move on. The atmosphere was the best thing about this place. The decor was great, the servers were good too if you're a guy I guess.

After some considerable recommendations from friends, I finally tried this place. I thought it just another new bubble place. I can't believe it took me this long! This place has got the freshest thinking I've ever encountered. By fresh, I mean everything. They got a huge selection of fresh fruits and exotic fruits, fresh teas (not the bag kinds), fresh latte, the works. The wait can be a bit long, but I guess if you want the fresh stuff it pays off - at least the staff are nice about it. They actually talk to you here.
You gotta try it - NOW! Don't wait like I did.
