I LOVE Babo because of its delicious bubble tea. Not only does it serve delicious bubble tea, but it serves other things like dumplings and etc... it's at least four stars in my opinion. Highly suggest you try it out!

Had gone with high expectations, had tried the mango ice cream which was just artificial flavour and the green tea ice cream which again had a rubbery flavour. We also had the green tea bubble tea which was average and vanilla bubble tea which was...More

Location wise the teahouse is great and has quite a few things on its menu for both vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians, though the quality of the stuff sevred can be greatly worked upon.

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...More
