Haven't tried their soups, wraps, dumplings, or rice dishes yet, but hope to have the opportunity soon. I've been there many times for their cold or hot Asian teas with or without milk, with or without tapioca beans. Love those teas! Also, they have a terrific selection of gelato ! Take the tea and/or gelato outside AND ENJOY ONE OF... More

They have bubble tea in several flavors and they all taste good. Other snacks and pastries are also offered. It is close to the walkway by the river so you can take your snack in the store or outside. The staff are pretty good and service is fast.

This place didn't seem popular. It was hard to see the ice cream name tags cuz the light in the freezer was broken. Server wasn't apologetic about that while we strained to see the flavors. Six of us ordered different flavors and some complained that it was too sweet. My flavor didn't wow me.

I come here for lunch about 3-4 time per month. The bubble tea is very good and the spicy beef ramen is delicious. The service is quite friendly and quick. I've had the gelato once before and it was equally quite tasty. I'd recommend this place.

Staying in 1 River court, this place was the closest to me. A wonderful place to have chicken noodle soup and some awesome bubble teas. Every thing on the menu is a must try. The items I liked the most were Chicken with rice and Chicken Noodle Soup. The Bubble teas are a must try and so are the gelatos.... More

My husband and I come here all the time for bubble tea and gelato. He finds their tea a little sweet- I think it's fine (you can always ask to hold the sugar). The dumplings, however, are not great. Try the tofu wrap instead!

Stopped in for a midafternoon snack and had hand-made siopao and shrimp shumai. Both were fairly tasty but not great quality. Service was friendly and helpful though it was chaotic behind the counter and back in what we could see of the kitchen. Our wait was much longer than necessary. I liked the look of several Asian snacks on the... More

When we spotted this place and looked at the menu, we were excited to try it. Sadly, the experience wasn't as we hoped. First the good part: service was friendly and prompt and the prices are not bad. You can eat in or take out. Now the not-so-great part: the food. Had the thai chicken rice bowl and my friend...

I told her that i want to talk to the manager and she said she's the manager,then i hope the owner of this place should find a real trained... More

We used to live in the area for several years. Whenever we return, we always come back to Babo. This time we were able to come back with our two young children (3 yo and 1 yo). They LOVED it here. There's yummy gelato, awesome bubble tea, delish dumplings. Overall fun location with kiddos since there's a ton of memorabilia... More
