Bubble 88 serves Taiwanese and Chinese cuisine along with an assortment of bubble tea.
Went here with the family in tow and went out to try some Taiwanese food. It is located in a small strip mall near Central City, but so worth the trip. The decor is clean and modern. The food is excellent. We had the House special chow mein, Taiwanese noodles with deep fried fish in a black pepper sauce, beef brisket with bamboo shoots and cabbage in a clay oven pot with rice and deep fried curry pork chops with rice. All the food came out hot and fresh. The taste was excellent. Very impressed, as I did not expected such tasty dishes. The service was great, very attentive and patience. They were able to answer all my questions with ease. Overall I am very impressed with this establishment. I will come again soon to try the other dishes and the tasty drinks.
It only took once to get me hooked on Bubble 88. There are not too many late night bubble tea places that also serve food in Surrey, so when my bf and I drove by Bubble 88, we had to try it. Since then, we have been back very frequently (sometimes twice per week).
The food is your standard Taiwanese fare with an assortment of snacks and set meals to accompany a large drink selection. I particularly like the beef noodle soup, and spicy wontons. For drinks, I recommend the fresh taro milk and milk tea with pudding jello (try it hot!).
What sets Bubble 88 apart is the service - it is excellent. Servers speak perfect English and Mandarin. They're well versed and can answer any questions regarding the menu. My parents, who are super picky people, bombarded the server with both relevant and irrelevant questions - all which were answered professionally and patiently by the server. They always have enough staff to take care of their customers' needs, so I've never had to wait or look around to flag down a server even when the restaurant is packed. They also seem to genuinely like working there (which sounds silly, but let's just say their smiles and "thank yous" are a refreshing change of pace compared to another competing bubble tea chain, whose servers rarely greeted, thanked or in general, acknowledged me in their frazzled state during peak hours).
Would I recommend this place? Already have - to all my friends. In fact, even though I literally live across the street from another late night bubble tea chain restaurant (that will remain nameless), I prefer to drive to dine at Bubble 88 instead.
recommanded by a friend, today I gave it a try. it totally worth it. For sure, I will come back , maybe in two days. excellent customer service, great food with great taste, a lot of variety and big portion. Nice dining enviroment. A great Chinese restaurant in Surrey.
