Located inside the University Mall plaza, The Old Teahouse serves up a variety of boba drinks in addition to a large food menu. The small restaurant has a few tables for those who want to hang out while watching Chinese music videos from the wall-mounted TVs. When you enter the restaurant, you go towards the left side and wait in line to order your meal and or drink. Unfortunately, they only take cash, so be prepared. The Old Teahouse has all of your usual boba cafe offerings like popcorn chicken, but also serves a variety of Hong Kong style entrée dishes.

Today, I ordered a lychee slush and the tomato fried rice. The slush was refreshing and had the usual lychee flavor, but it wasn’t that great. The tomato fried rice came as a large portion loaded with tomato flavor. The dish came with an adequate amount of shrimp and egg. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of good tasting food received for the price.

Overall, The Old Teahouse serves up good tasting food with decent boba drinks. If you don’t mind the crowded ambiance and mediocre service, then The Old Teahouse will fulfill your late night Chinese food and boba cravings all in one place. If you haven’t been here before, then I suggest you give it a try, but if you are looking for great tasting Chinese food or great boba drinks, look elsewhere.
