Tapioca House

 

ChinatownConnection Editorial Profile

The Scene:

Hip, cafe style with a touch of class is a good description of Tapioca House. Design is very clean and modern. Artwork from fellow patrons hang on the wall for display really complements the atmosphere of this place. There is plenty of room for people to come in and play card games, talk, or do homework. This is the perfect place for conversations with a client, date, or just hang out.

 

The Food:

Tapioca House serves traditional Taiwanese meals and snacks. Their main focus, however, is on Bubble tea and other drinks like coffee. They have a huge list of teas, fruit drinks, and smoothies to try. Their meals and snacks are tasteful and just like how it should be made.

 

 

Heads Up:

Wireless internet is available here free of charge!! They also have buy promotion where after the 10th drink, the next one is free. This is a great place for all people of all ages to come and relax and enjoy life.

 

Customer Reviews

 

Review by Melinda B.

I am "in love" with Tapioca House! The food and drinks are so good...I'm always dying for the chicken nuggets! I used to live far away so I couldn't go as often but now I moved back a little closer so this will be my routine lunch/dinner spot again! I've been going for years and I've never encountered anyone rude. I will always recommend this place, it's the best!!

Tapioca House has some of the rudest and most impolite staff! They treat the customers with NO respect and think they're too good to be there. If you spend more than 10 seconds trying to figure out what to order, the staff will give you a dirty look by rolling her eyes. I will say that their prices are decent, but the food & drinks are average. When I ordered an iced coffee, the bottom of my cup was completely filled with coffee grounds! Basically, with the rude staff and bad service, I definitely won't be going back there again.

Review by Olivia M.

Some staff are very nice but some are rude, I guess it just depends on their mood for the day. The food there are especially good, calamari and pancakes are so far my favorite! I like the Jasmine milk tea and tapioca, most drinks are pretty decent yet I found their coffee are a little lacking except for a couple famous one. Is a great place to hang out and do homework with wireless internet, HOWEVER, the temperature in the store are off, it is always overly hot.

I have never been to such a good tapioca house in my life. We go every Friday night and we have made great friends with the people who work there. Since we come so much They always know what we want its so much fun to just come and talk and the service is great. It's always crowded. I recommend the Tapioca Milk Tea with Tapioca and the Mango smoothie with mango star jelly (or lychee). Sometimes me and my mom get the crispy chicken nuggets (mmmmmmmmmm so good).

I really love this place! The service was nice and prompt and the bubble tea was refreshing and delicious. The only thing you should really be aware of is if you use credit/debit cards, there is a $5 minimum purchase. I love the mango snow ice bubble tea and the regular milky bubble tea. I'm really surprised anyone would give a negative review on the customer service because my husband and I felt the staff was friendly. We plan on coming back :)

The place is good, but it is not great. Everything from the taste on down is satisfying at times, I guess it depends on how the person likes it. But their service is rather rude when they do not feel like they have to be polite when taken orders. Since it's an Asian place, most likely their manners aren't well trained. That still does not give them the right to treat any people with less respect unless they have it coming for them. This does not count towards the men that works there, it's the ladies that can't control their mood swings or something. Learn to do service or become jobless! Take what you can learn from the job or get the hell out!!

-Review by Angela D.

I can't believe anyone would say anything bad about this place. I love the young, hip atmosphere and friendly staff. Service on the drinks is very fast, but food is fresh and takes a bit longer. It's hot and tasty when you get it though! The girl that helps me always suggests new drinks and lets me try lots of samples. The passion fruit milk tea with tapioca is the absolute best. I have tried it at several other places and so far nothing else compares. Come try it, they deserve the business cuz their drinks and food are delicious!

Great place to chill. Wireless internet is a plus. Serves tapioca (bubble tea) Taiwanese style, like how it's supposed to be.

-Review by JC.

Well let's just start with what I like about Tapioca House, since it's short. I like the Tap Chicken since it reminds me of Taiwan. Otherwise, the place is an overrated, conceited little establishment. The service is absolutely terrible. It takes fifteen years for them to actually notice you're waiting for them. And another five hours to take your order. The manager of the place just sits on her ass and looks at her computer even though it's clear that customers are waiting be served. Once I find another place that serves the chicken, I'm out. I recommend Star Snow Ice; their drinks are much larger, tapioca much tastier, and the price is about the same. And they actually put ice in your drink.

Nice laid-back atmosphere, great for chillin' with friends. Great tea. My favorite snack is their spicy dry bean curd. You can get it in mild, medium, or very spicy. The chewy texture is just right. The fried chicken snack is a friend's favorite - the basil gives it a great flavor.

-Review by Fred

Only thing to say about Tapioca House is Free Wireless Internet Access!! and bubble tea. To me, this beats the local Starbucks because bubble tea is cheaper, taste better, and the store does not charge money to access the internet. The atmosphere is comfy and this place is great to have meetings or have a conversation.

My friend took me here one weekend and he told me that this was the place to get bubble tea. I have never had bubble tea in my life and boy does it taste good! It has to be the best coffee alternative. I am definitely coming back for more!!
