New Asian flavours arrive at The Kitchens

Local foodies will be salivating over news two brand new Asian establishments have joined The Kitchens at Robina Town Centre – Bubble ‘N’ Sweets and Ari Thai Kitchen & Bar.

Bubble ‘N’ Sweets swung open its doors to patrons last week, unveiling a beautifully sleek space on Ground Floor, and if their name isn’t a dead giveaway, bubble tea is their forte.

Inspired by Taiwan’s popular tea drinking culture, Bubble ‘N’ Sweets is now giving Robina locals the chance to sip on a selection of equally Insta and drool-worthy tea concoctions.


The second Bubble ‘N’ Sweets store to open in Queensland under owner Vincent Yin’s direction (the other is located in Toowoomba), this fresh new beverage bar features 12 specialty tea grinders that line the walls, each offering a different flavour to sample and sip – we’re talking traditional Oolong, Jasmine, Ceylon black and Roasted Oolong to name a few.

Gold Coasters wanting to tuck into some delicious Thai food will be able to get their fix from Ari Thai Kitchen & Bar on Level 1 from today.

The latest venture from Stanley Lee and his team, this casual dining Thai eatery takes its cues from the Soi Ari food market in Bangkok; an uber-cool neighbourhood market where local street food vendors and street-side restaurants serve up a host of fresh Thai eats, produce and dessert day and night.

Signature dishes include the Somtum Thai – a pawpaw and crispy soft shell crab dish with peanuts, tomatoes, chilli and lime; the Crying Tiger – grilled sirloin beef featuring onion, chilli and rice powder; the whole barramundi; and the Massaman Lamb Shank slow cooked to perfection.
