This is a tough 2 stars. Very close to where I live, however not really an option.. unless you go prepared (i believe the sign suggests what you need to do in order to enjoy your meal). The food is just okay, and one dimensional almost always. And yeah, what's up with charging extra for rice? Anyway, was hooked on the lunch specials, but after trying out all of them (and I mean all) it's done for me.
In response to thr signage touting Boba drinks, I wanted a treat one day and went in .... the bobas are watery and unblended, and there are only 4 or 5 flavors to choose from. Not impressed. Not a treat at all.
*Incredible Lunch Special*.
The value and quality of their lunch special is excellent. I got the vegetable pad thai, which came with pad thai, rice, some small egg-rolls and a thai iced-tea for only $4.50. The portions were generous/looked like dinner size and the service was fast and friendly. They have a small patio to sit outside as well and limited parking. I will definitely go back often.
