“One of the better Taiwanese drink places in Auckland”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

If you are looking for a Taiwanese drink place for bubble teas, etc, this is one of the better ones in Auckland. One of its' best attribute is the location in downtown Auckland. The other one that you need to try is J's teahouse on Dominion Road (close to Mt Albert road end).

Service - Not particularly personable but efficient.

Food - The drink was nice. I always order the original milk tea with pearls to allow judging of the taste between shops. The tea here is nice and strong (not too strong); and not too sweet. The pearl is chewy and has a nice hint of sweetness to it. Definitely a competition for J's tea.

Value - Standard price for these drinks in Auckland. Nice size too :)

Atmosphere - Nothing special but would be good for a group of friends.

Overall - If you are in downtown Auckland, this is a nice place to try out.

“Best Taiwanese Drinks in town”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

If you've been looking for milk teas, bubble teas, tapioca drinks... This is definitely the place for you!

Hulu Cat has an extensive drinks menu from plain tea, milk tea, to slushies; with a good selection of extra toppings for you drinks (eg. Tapioca, Honey Aloe etc).
You can also request to adjust sugar and ice levels for your drinks :)

It's a great place to chill with your friends/family, there is also a nibbles menu if you feel the need :)

My favourite is the Yogurt Green Tea with Honey Aloe (with no extra sugar added) - sweet, with a dash of sour, very refreshing :)

“Must Visit in Auckland”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Love love this place. The best milk tea available in Auckland, and even better than some of those found in Asia itself. A glass of milk tea is $6 and is gigantic! If you are not into milk tea, there are also non-milk options including normal tea and slushies. Their pearls are always fresh, and there is the option to have flavoured jelly instead of pearls. The food is okay, although they have not always been consistent. Best to have dinner or lunch first before having dessert at Hulucat.
