A friend who is from Vancouver recommended us this place for tea. Seeing pictures of it on my phone, I decided to check it out with some friends who were also from out of town.
I guess we chose to arrive as tons of other people because there was a line out the door. First strange or bad encounter was the staff turning people away. We decided to stay and after waiting for 30 minutes or so, got a seat at this coveted tea place.
Once inside, you felt like in some sort of movie. Cutesy china everywhere, which gave me a vibe of being back at my grandma's place. But that's where the fairy tale or whatever you want to call it ended. No one acknowledged us for a while. The place is tiny mind you, which is okay with us, but not the lack of proper seating arrangements. I do not want to be bumping elbows with strangers, thank you.
As for the food and tea itself, it was alright, but nothing to write home about. Tons and tons of options to choose from, and with no help from the waitress, I had to randomly go for the kalahari (not sure how you spell it). Not only did our tea take forever to come, but the waitress never came back to check up on us during our stay. It is okay to have a bad day, just dont take it out on your customers.
