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.
