Beautiful architecture - reminds one of a Persian palace. Colorful handpainted ceiling and interior decoration and beautiful carved wooden columns make this place seem like you have been transported to another time and place. We visited on a Saturday for lunch after walking through the Farmer's Market. At noon, the wait was only 15 minutes. The chai tea was the... More

We really enjoyed our visit here. While visiting Boulder, we made reservations for the afternoon tea. They go all out for the tea service with white table linens, fresh flowers, a tray of treats and a huge selection of tea. It was a nice experience and the building itself is beautiful in a special way. It's right in the mix... More

I remember watching the Teahouse be built, and how all the beautiful pieces came together, and still being surprised at how it was even better on the inside than the outside. They serve every kind of tea and many savory and sweet dishes to compliment the tea, in an atmosphere that allows one to pretend one is in a far... More

Ducked in here for lunch on a Saturday. Was a bit crowded but I sat alone at the bar, where I naturally made new friends. I had the breakfast Bahn Mi and a blooming chamomile tea, both were delicious. But the best part was the decor. So beautiful inside and out! Definitely check this place out!

Expect a wonderful meal with lovely food, great service, and beautiful atmosphere. The teahouse is also a great value and just a couple of blocks from the pearl street mall. Also expect some lovely cocktails if you are in the mood for a drink. The drinks are very interesting and not your run of mill concoctions.

We ate here for lunch - three adults, a teenager and a tween. We all thought the food was excellent. The building is amazing and makes a fun setting for any occasion. The service was somewhat slow though.

None of us had been but we had heard about it. We shared the hummus plate and they had a special crab cake appetizer. It was clear at that point tonight would be a big foodie win. We also ordered different teas throughout the evening. I ordered the Russian Beet Salad which had the freshest butter lettuce I've ever seen.... More

We stopped in at the Visitor Center on Pearl Street and the woman there recommended that we take a peek at the Teahouse. We didn't go to eat but we did walk down to check it out. The servers were friendly and allowed us to walk around inside and take photos. I'd love to go back and spend more time... More

The Dushanbe Tajik Tea house sits in a park-like setting among mature trees and store fronts on thirteenth street in Boulder Colorado. It is worth the trip for specialty teas and authentic Persian international food. they serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch is our favorite. Choose all your favorites anytime from a full menu. They are conscientious to dietary... More

Went to a reception at the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse. This a very pretty and very unexpected thing to see in the middle of downtown Boulder, a tea house from Tajikistan, that was completed rebuilt tile by tile, wall by wall. Food was good, not great, drinks were good, but ambience was something else. Even in you do not eat here,... More
