It was a nice place to stop for lunch. The steamed buns were really good. The curry chicken was good too.

this place has the best bubble tea!!! I didn't try anything else but it has a cute atmosphere inside and out front. I will definitely stop by again for some boba when I am in Portland next time.

I came in November 23, 2014 with my family for lunch to try out this bubble tea place in Portland. Worst decision we ever made. We had to spend $10 on parking adjacent to bubblemainea. Worst staff ever. Very rude in so many ways. The...More
