I used to be a frequent diner at Boba House. However, in the last year or so, the cleanliness has taken a turn for the worse. And, the last 3 times I ate there, I was up sick all night. I have not been there in months and do not intend to go back.

I had heard that all their dishes served were vegetarian, though the menu reads with a choice of meat..... That was something amusing to me. I always wanted to go there, but was reluctant to try this place as they served vegetarian, and I like eating meat. One fine day for lunch I was taken to Boba House, I just couldn't believe.... the food was amazing and the fake meat (processed soy chunks) was fantastic.

I happened to stumble upon this reveiw and may be a bit biast because I work at Boba House and have for two years. I love the food here and even after eating it almost every day have not gotten sick of if. I have met plenty of vegens, vegetarians and non vegetarians who travel from outside Greensboro just to eat here. There are a variety of unique dishes and drinks to choose from which allow for an escape from the mundane chain restaurants which surround us. I have found that most of the dishes are large enough to feed two people and come with more than a "spoon" full of rice. Also the lunch menu prices are more than generous and are offered Monday-Friday, Satuday is the only day which a dinner menu is used from 12- 9:30. As far as the service goes we treat each customer with care and respect. Since there are only two people working on the floor at a time some days can get very hectic, patience is a virtue.

Pros: unique environment, meatless food, drinks with pearls!

Cons: sometimes overcrowded

I can't compliment this place enough. Tucked away in a strip on Tate Street right near UNCG and Greensboro College is an excellent surprise. All of their menu items are vegetarian, and many are vegan, but some might never even notice. The menu features "fake" meat and exotic dishes, all the meals I have had there have had wonderful flavor and an obvious attention to detail. A great place for a date, this place is for everyone NOT just vegetarians!

Most of the food in this restaurant is supposed to be Asian influenced. However the execution falls very short. The dishes that we got relied much too heavily on the sauce and did not let the individual ingredients shine. Also the mock chicken that was part of the dish was sliced more like fish (wide and thin fillets). This was very odd and did not have the right texture.

To top it off they were using basmati rice which is not sticky and used for Indian food (you cannot pick up basmati with the chopsticks they provided) when they should have been using Thai jasmine rice or Chinese sticky rice. On the way out I asked one of the cooks what type of rice they were using and he didn't even know!!!

Also, they just gave us a tiny little serving of rice on our plate. Every other place I have ever been that serves Asian food brings you rice separately, and will give you free refills. For Boba House to just give a little small spoon of rice on each plate screams STINGY!

To top it off, the service was inattentive and the floors were dirty. Oh yes, did I mention that we went at LUNCH TIME yet were forced to pay DINNER PRICES just because it was a Friday??? What the hell? This is not printed on the menu anywhere, we didn't find out until we tried to order a lunch serving (this was at 12:30) and the waitress said "We only serve dinner portions on the weekend". STUPID.

For the prices they charge ($$$$$) we expected much better food and service. It is obvious they have amateurs cooking in their kitchen. I have had meals at true vegan Chinese restaurants where the meal tasted twice as good for half the price. Boba House is simply not up to par. Very disappointing!

Pros: NONE

Cons: POOR SERVICE, EXPENSIVE, AMATEUR COOKS, NOT VERY GOOD FOOD

The food here is really good, and all vegetarian or vegan, which pleases my vegan daughter. That being said, my carnivore son also likes the food, because the "meat" in the dishes tastes like "meat", even though it isn't. My husband, who is willing to be an adventurous eater as long as it doesn't include broccoli, also really likes Boba House. They also have some good beers which you don't find in every eating establishment. Parking can occasionally be an issue, since it is on Tate Street on the edge of UNCG, but parking farther down the street affords a nice walk to the restaurant.

Pros: good vegetarian and vegan, but tasty for non-vegans in your group

Cons: you have to navigate Tate Street, which can be a challenge
