Brittney B., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Aug. 27, wrote, "This place is poppin. It's awesome that a boba shop has alcoholic drinks you can add boba and other toppings to. I personally loved the Red Sea drink with raspberry tea and blueberries ... It's a very cool looking place. They have games on touch-screen tables plus a cool photo wall outside and patio seating."

And Sabrina N. wrote, "The service is great and fast, the music is always bumping, the drinks are good, and they have so much on the menu that you won't run out of options. If you're here late, it definitely gives you a lounge-style feel."
