I've always though Ten Ren's was purely a tea house that served small portioned apps... having never really stayed to sit I never knew about the full menu. However on this last trip I got a chance to actually have a full meal with bubble tea of course. Atmosphere was good, quiet due to summer time. There was 1 waitress... More

Ten Ren is our go-to place for Bubble Tea. They have a large selection of flavors, and different jellies that you can choose from in addition to the typical Boba (we like to order iced Thai Bubble Tea with half-Boba, half-jellies). Our favorite is the "Grass Jelly," is has a pleasant mint taste that adds to the overall flavor of... More

My favorite is green apple in green jasmine iced tea and my daughter's is iced taro milk tea with bubbles. So many choices!! How fun that a beverage can be such a treat! Lunch is good here too, though the vegetarian options are a bit limited.

Albeit the food is just ok, the relaxed atmosphere and the tea selections are wonderful. This is a fine choice for someone who wants a few moments alone or to sip tea with a friend. The staff will let you stay as long as you like, so feel free to bring a book, tablet, laptop, or great conversation and relax.... More

This restaurant is a great place to meet friends over tea or get a hearty hot soup on a winter day. The menu has a wide range of Asian noodle soups, buns (bao), and bubble teas. BUT the table service is absolutely horrible. Long stretches go by without a single wait person appearing on the floor or even looking over... More

The teas did look good but the food seemed only average. Service was quick and efficient. There isn't much choice in College Park, so this seems better than most. Quieter than some other Route 1 dives.

Still a fan. I was actually making my way to Simply Ovo Veggie, but I did not know that it was closed on Sunday..... So swap vegetarian to Taiwanese food. This place is very packed on a Sunday afternoon. As usual there is not many serving staff, but whoever is on duty (the lone wolf) is always polite and present.... More

I visited here with some friends after a long day when one of them suggested it. The service was horrible and food ok. The place wasn't packed so I can't understand why service wasn't that good. Everyone's fod came out as if it was a different meal course. The waiter never came back to check on us. We had to... More

I come to Ten Ren's mostly for the tea and get it to-go. However, I have eaten in the restaurant before and the food has always been good. They have a wide selection of teas and excellent bubble tea. A nice change up from Starbucks with a good atmosphere and fair pricing. Always have had good service and restrooms are... More

Ever since I tried this place, I had been a fan. Their Taiwanese snack food and other what most people would just lump it as Chinese suits my palate very well. Back again on a Friday night for my favorite Taiwanese Pork Sausage, Eel with Rice, Deep Fried String Beans, and Crispy Tofu. The price is so economical I would... More
