I love the food and the atmosphere

Eating Chinese food in here was a really happy thing for me, because all the foods, which were cooked by a lot of seasonings, are delicious. Tonight, I ate steamed buns in here that had a nice taste.The waiting was not bad, and waiters took drinks for the customers who are waiting. I thought, they... read more

Dinner is good as well, but the buffet is the reason to come to Tea House. Cheap, plentiful, and wonderfully tasty dishes of food await you. I haven't had a dish on the buffet that I have not enjoyed. If you go away hungry, its because you didn't get up from your seat. One bite and you'll be hooked. My... More

This place is very close to my client side and I often end up eating here. They have a good number of items prepared for buffet style eating. One can always order food and get it on their table. Nice service with some really good tasting food.

Tea House offers a decent lunch buffet for the price. Lunchtime is always crowded and service can be a bit erratic, but the place is large enough and tables are turned efficiently to avoid long waits. Nothing fancy here, but a wide selection of good take-out quality fare. Buffet is re-filled frequently to ensure that items stay fresh including a... More

We love Chinese cuisine and have cooked it at home for more than 40 years. Over the years we have tried many of the other Chinese restaurants in the Twin Cities trying to find good, authentic Chinese food. Some were O.K. but when someone told us about Tea House in Plymouth and we tried it about 8 years ago, we... More

We came across this restaurant as we happened to be staying at LaQuinta just a half mile away, and we returned the next evening. The menu is extensive, the best item for me being their whole walleye--very tasty. The manager was most accommodating as we arrived late. Service was excellent. A winner!

Friendly service and excellent Chinese food make this restaurant worth visiting! Highly recommended for authentic Mandarin and Cantonese cuisine.

I used to think this place was OK, but on my last visit I vowed never to return. Every piece of meat on my plate was mostly a chunk of fat when I cut in to it. Couldn't eat it. Went back to the buffet thinking I'd just got a bad portion. Nope, same problem. What a rip off besides... More

The buffet is good. I come here once a month for lunch. Food is usually the same. It'd be nice to change it up a little. I will keep coming back. I like their hot and sour soup.

I think the Tea House has gone downhill, it looks like they need help in service. They used to have the best fried rice, which to me means not soaked in soy sauce and then called "fried" rice. I ordered it for takeout last time and it had no flavor to it whatsoever. Their other offerings, such as wontons, etc.... More
