I had never been to this restaurant before and ate for dinner with a few of my relatives. The restaurant is a bit further out of Vancouver than I'd usually travel (especially for bubble tea) but its a fairly quick drive across town down Kingsway.

Normally I don't take my meals at bubble tea restaurants... I find the food generally tastes like it was made by teenagers (and honestly, it usually is). The only redeeming quality of the food is that the portions are gigantic. Two people could easily share each entree. Otherwise, the usually repetitive selection of rice and noodle dishes are salty, greasy, and uninspiringly flavoured.

I saved the best for last! One thing about this restaurant which does stand out for me is the way in which they serve their slush drinks. Its quite a novelty having a two-foot-tall drink arrive at your table although they separate the drink into two cups after serving it. I didn't taste any of the strawberry slush so can't comment on its quality but you essentially get two drinks for the price of one so the value can't be that bad.
