Not as good as before

What happened to this place? The Dessert House use to be one of the top hang out spots in my generation. I remember that place use to be packed with people lining up for bubble tea. But I guess all great things come to an end. After they relocated, service has never been the same. Wait times for a... read more

Seriously I'm extremely unsatisfied with their customer services, I came to this place in hope for some authentic eggettes since that's the only place that offered eggettes in town as I have known. But when I came in the store, the owner of the store was extremely rude when taking my order and she did not even smile during my... More

My husband and I came to this dessert house to check out their Fluffy ice. It was really good. We didn't expect to find flavor fluffy snow ice in Calgary but it was good. We tried a few different desserts that's like Hong Kong style and we both enjoyed. They used fresh fruits on the dessert which was really great!... More

This "B-Tsai" dessert house has over 10 years of history in Calgary's Chinatown and they remain one of the most expensive snack restaurants there. Probably they make dishes fresh to orders or that they do not have enough kitchen staff, customers have to wait for a long time after placing the orders. However, the food quality is not as good...

In my opinion the best fruity bubble drinks in town. But the owners always act like you've pissed them off by having the audacity to walk in and ordering drinks! If you're desparate for bubbles and don't care about rudeness it's your best bet. They are not always that rude...just 90% of the time. Prices are on the higher side.

Really impressed by the wide range of Chinese dessert available, from the traditional one to more trendy one. But it's quite expensive to be honest! The service was slow to eat in, but phone in order was ready quite fast.
