we were taking a stroll around kerrisdale on a lazy Sunday afternoon, we parked near this place and decided to go in for a bite. Pretty simple place and at 5 pm on sunday the place was not busy. We had some drink and food. The place caters to asians, i would imagine that they will understand you if you speak english to them, but definitely they will not be native speakers.
value is fine for what you get, i agree with the previous poster that they are a bit stingy with the napkins. Overall this place is fine and will go back if in the area.
I used to be a big fan of BBT cafe, but ever since I was introduced to this tea house, I couldn't stop myself from coming back.
The service isn't terrible; from my experiences, they are fairly polite even when I speak to them in english.
Bubble tea flavours are excellent and their special drinks are really good as well (though everything is a little on the pricey side). I definitely would recommend their milk tea with pudding. They give you a large amount of pudding as well. Normally, I can never finish a drink. I find the food decent as well, though nothing special there.
the bubble tea is alright and the food is barely okay, but the service is terrible. there are stuck-up waitresses that don't even speak english. i was sitting there trying to order and the woman couldn't even understand what i was saying.
the price is decent and ambiance is all right. but for pay-parking, you're better off eating mcdonalds.
Cute Pearl is amazingly stingy on the napkins. When you order food, they give you ONE little thin square to wipe your face with. You're lucky if they give you two.
Bubble tea is quite expensive. Usually 4 bucks a drink, and to add pearls I think you have to fork up another dollar. But I think their bubble tea is good, way better than bbt cafe. But still, adding pearls for a dollar is expensive.
Some seats to the tables are dirty... kinda gross if I'm wearing shorts and sitting on their chairs. They also have one unisex bathroom... which is kinda gross. The floors are sticky.. with probably urine.. and kinda dark in there.
