Description: The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is nestled against the Rocky Mountain Foothills in Boulder Colorado. Sitting alongside Boulder Creek in Central Park, the Teahouse is considered one of Boulder's most attractive and popular tourist attractions, as well as being a local favorite for great food, tea, and atmosphere. Completely built by hand without the use of any power tools, the Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a gift to their sister city, Boulder. It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration. The elaborate and creative teahouse now sits as a reminder to the citizens of Boulder to value cultural diversity, global cooperation, and international friendship.

When you think of Tea Houses you don't think of great meals but that is just what we had. I ordered the Chicken for lunch that had wonderful African spices. It was served over chickpea puree with a refreshing salad to the side. It was actually plated large so I could have shared it with my friend. But we weren't... More

I've visited here many times, but today realized I come most often between meals: mid-morning, after lunch, happy hour. The menu is varied enough to offer just the right item: desserts and coffee; mid afternoon cup of homemade chai, appetizers. I'm not putting down their regular meal service, which is very good. But the Teahouse stands out for the perfect... More

The Dushanbe tea house was the gift of the people of Dushanbe to their sister city Boulder. It took a number of years to get the Alan's allocated to set up the beautifully carved and painted tiles that make up the walls of the tea house. Mit sits right off the main walking mall and next to the Farmer's market... More

I've loved eating at the Dushanbe Tea House over the years. They serve very eclectic eastern fare, very clean food, and well presented. The ambiance with all the decorative tiles from Dushanbe adds to the beauty of the dining experience. Colorful walls, hand carved pillars, heirloom rose bushes of many sorts (in season) lining the walkway to the front door,... More

Very good food, tea and service. However, the highlight is eating in a little piece of Tajikistan while in downtown Boulder. It's an experience for a traveler to have in Boulder.

Wonderful spot for afternoon tea, whether you do their package, which includes loads of yummy food and treats, or order a la cart off the tea and food menus. Gorgeous setting compliments what can be a delightful celebration or just a fun treat. Very accommodating of allergies and other special food needs.

This restaurant is located just a few blocks away from the pedestrian area in the center of Boulder, and offers a very different ambiance. The inside is very stylish and original. The food is very nice, there is a lot of choice, from many countries. Dishes are often quite different from what they claim to be but this is not... More

I took a dear friend here for high tea today, and it is probably my tenth time there (as I live in Colorado), but my first time having high tea. There selection is amazing!! You need to give 48 hours for reservations, and they can accommodate any dietary needs. Our plates included a palate cleanser to start, we sampled four... More
