While visiting our son for Mom's weekend at OU he wanted to take us to TEA cafe Asian diner (I think this is the name). Our party of 5 had the most delicious food ( for a great price $6 lunch gets you a huge portion of fried rice, your choice of protein and heat level). Since I'm gluten free... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat on Campus, and while the food is a tad greasy, it is absolutely delicious. My favorite dish is the beef chow fun, spice level 2 out of 3. Also, their slushes are very good particularly green apple and passion fruit. This is a great place to eat good Asian food

Unique, fun cafe, with great service, good food, good prices and a wonderful assortment of refreshing drinks. A great place to visit on OU move-in or move-out day.

My daughter eats here all the time when she is at OU so I thought I would try this out with her. I had an amazing green tea with peach that was worth the trip alone! I had the Kung Pao Shrimp with brown rice and the egg drop soup which was "meh". The KungPao shrimp was nothing like I... More

I come in here 3 times a week for the best beverage. A Taro frappe with bobba and whip cream. It's amazing. Im not into Asian food but my friends like it. Sometimes the store closes down for a few weeks at a time, which can be frustrating, but maybe they are spending time with family so I guess I'll... More

Both locations are very good--we love the atmosphere of the east side better than the campus corner feel, but either will not disappoint. The have a lunch special platter deal that allows you to sample a variety of foods, nice. Their Bobba tea is fantastic -- all around great experience.

I love this place. The food is right there on par with the rest of the really good Asian restaurants in Norman. Their rice box, which is like a combo meal thing you can get is a great value for what you get. They have a pretty impressive selections of teas of all types including hot teas, herbal teas, boba...
