Tea house serves good varieties of tea and desserts. The ambience is nice and the waitresses are friendly. My favorite tea is the lychee black tea :), like it so much that I bought a box to take home.

We went to Purple Cane sometime ago looking to buy tea and tea pots and discovered they have a restaurant. So we made an effort to have our dinner at the restaurant during this visit and we were glad to have made the effort. The food is delicious and the portions generous. As it sells tea, many of the dishes... More

This is a lovely, calm airy spot for a drink or something to eat. The space is gorgeous - high roof, spacious and peaceful. I only had a drink but there's a good menu too and tea / teapots to buy if you want.

I happened to chance upon this cafe with my friends. I liked the calm ambience of the restaurant and the uniqueness of the food (i.e. tea leaves, fresh fruits and vegetables had been used in the dishes). The cafe might wish to consider changing its nondescript signboard to attract more customers.

A unique boutique tea retail shop with a dining restaurant. Nice oriental like deco augurs well with the teahouse tradition. The uniqueness of the place is that teas is the main focus in the food and drinks. It is all about tea, different kind of teas being one of the ingredients in the cooking and of course the various premium... More

Its quasi oriental design and cozy environment is worth your time once in a while. This is definitely not place for authentic Chinese tea art except demonstration from the sales assistance in the retail shop. Varieties of tea served in the restaurant is also limited instead there are wide variety of nice food but slightly over priced. Location ideally seated... More

Place design unique, cozy environment for reading and friends chit chat gathering. Food taste good too, but not much choice, because all food and beverage are related with tea. Price a bit expensive, depend what and how you order.

We had one of the best meals on this trip at Purple Cane. Every dish was well balanced and not overly salted. We savoured the Braised bean curd with green tea rice, Lei Cha noodles, Guava snack and the iced guava jasmine drink so much that we came back the next evening! Very worthwhile especially the bean curd!
