We have never ordered food here because this is our bubble tea stop!! Simply delicious! The tapioca balls are house made and fresh. The fruit combinations in the bubble tea are just delicious! We had raspberry, mango, and blueberry mixed bubble tea! We would definitely...More

As soon as we walked up, I was overwhelmed by all the different choices to choose from. I really liked the concept and the beverage, but my favorite was the packaging. I wouldn't buy one again unless someone helped me with ordering.

We had a delicious lunch with only a short wait, very busy, but efficient. The menu is very big, and it took a bit of time to go through. Everything we ordered was hot and very good. There is also a very extensive list of...More

We just have beverages at this place: bubble tea and smoothies from the take out window. I tried the milk bubble tea, just because I heard it was good, having no clue what the "bubbles" were. Well, I soon found out they look like blueberries...More

I loved the smoothie that I got there. It was fresh and it looked delicious. I got a strawberry smoothie with strawberry bobo balls. It was absolutely, hands down, the best smoothie I have ever had!

Fast fresh hot and so good. Menu is overwhelming, but after you decipher it and order you will not be disappointed. Get ready for leftovers also, as the portions are XXXL

Awesome lunch! The Spicy Thai Beef Salad was delicious. There were several vegetarian options, which my daughter really appreciated. The portions were huge and nicely plated. Server was friendly and the food arrived in a timely manner.

I guess these are called bubble teas, but we enjoyed the fresh fruit smoothies - banana, coconut, custard, large ball tapioca. Lots and lots of choices, so many we had to go back a few times during our trip.

Late lunch on a sunny Sunday. Only had to wait 5 minutes for table for our party of 4. Decor bright and simple. The menu is giant and mind boggling. Figuring out the prices was a little tricky but it made it more fun. We...More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
