We were excited to try this place, but were very disappointed. There were no carts, hot tea was not hot. Higher prices than anywhere else we've been for what it was. Got overcharged for hot tea, $7 for two!? Tim Wah is much better and...More

My wife and I came here just around 6:00PM on a Friday. Normally I wouldn't approach a place at that day and time but BB was essentially empty! They very recently remodeled and changed the menu - the on-line menu was not up-to-date. The service...More
