We usually order lunch take out from here for work and no matter what you get it is delicious! I've ordered the BBQ Pork Bao several times and am always happy with how tender the meat is and the soft Bao is so good. You can't get anything like this anywhere in L/A.

Boba is a real find. The food is delicious! We had pho, chicken wings, dumplings, bubble tea, and beignets for desert. So much food. So good. Everything is made fresh and cooked to perfection. The chief is so friendly. We felt like we were visiting with a friend. The service is terrific. If you enjoy Asian cooking you should treat yourself to meal here. You will be impressed!

Wow! Who'd have thunk? In a small and unassuming residential Lewiston neighborhood, outrageously delicious, inventive, Asian-funky-fusion fare beckons. There is no ambiance, no 'vibe' and the minimalist setting is spartan, at best. On really cold winter evenings, be prepared to wear a coat through dinner, 'cause you're gonna' feel the cold every time the door opens. And it is SO worth it! The Pho is outrageous (you get to tailor the key ingredients to your own taste), the scallion pancakes and the spicy tots are amazing apps. The shu mai were awesome, as was the pad Thai. We've been there twice so far and chef Zach was engaged in us and our experience. His love of the art is evident, and our love of his skill will keep bringing us back. BTW, they do a TON of take-out business, so there's that...

We were Christmas shopping in Auburn and yelped new places in the area, Boba came up so we drove the extra miles to go there, almost left as it looked a bit like a bodega and little to no seating, but they had five stars so we braved it anyway, so glad we did! Love the atmosphere and the food was absolutely delicious! Have driven the hour there now on multiple occasions and my son who hates driving anywhere is constantly begging to go! Small owner run establishment and they are super sweet, warm, and welcoming, and helped navigate the menu on our first trip.

Today my husband and I went to Boba for lunch. We began our meal with steamed pork and cabbage dumplings. They were about the best that we have had. We then had the Jasmine Fried Rice and the PHO. The ingredients were fresh, and the food delicious. We especially loved the Thai basil in the PHO. This restaurant is a welcomed addition to the area. Zach, the owner, and family all work together to make your meal enjoyable! We will be returning to sample more food
on the menu.
