It´s a nice place to have a chat with your friends while enjoying a nice bubble tea. I always have the original milk tea with pearls, it never dissapoints!

I am not a tea person but I must say that Hulucat created in my heart a love for milk teaaa! I so love their milk tea, it is so subtle yet very refreshing!

It's been almost two years since I left living in Asia and I had a pleasant come back with an Asian ice tea fix. It's like in SE Asia.

Whenever I visit Auckland I do not forget to visit Hulucat with my husband. We are like addicted to it. Price is very worth for quantity and taste. I always make sure to have their loyalty card stamped so I can get a discount on my 10th drink. I wouldn't recommend their creamy juice though. I find it too sour... More

Always have awesome service. The loyalty card is also a good idea if you go a lot. But always a nice treat hot or cold

Have always been a big fan of Hulu cat but after tonight's service will think twice about visiting this location! We got all the way home a few weeks ago and found out that what we paid for was not what we had ordered...they had left out the egg custards and had not listened to our order which asked for...

I was actually on my way to Chatime on Queen Street and stumbled upon this little shop on Wellesley Street. This shop was in close proximity to my hotel and so on this particular rainy, Auckland afternoon, I decided to give it a go (plus they had a wide variety of toppings, which I love!) I have to be honest... More

Hulucat has been of great service on Dominion Rd, Wellesley St and Anzac Ave the past 6 years I have been going there to have meals and milk teas with friends. I always recommend to my clients and to friend and family to visit there when they are in Auckland. Sometimes service can be slow I admit this. Hulucat staff... More

Hulucat does make very good bubble-tea type drinks for a reasonable price- however, as it is only a 2-person operation it can take an exceptionally long time for the drink to be produced. Other than that, Hulucat is conveniently located, and offers good drinks at a good price.

Thank Thomas K
