If you like Chinese food, you'll enjoy the Tea House. The service isn't great, but it's acceptable. Their food will bring you back!

Been dining here for years and it's always a great place to grab a bite to eat. All menus items are great and the wait staff friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. If you like hot (spicy) Chinese dishes, this is the place to go.

This is a favorite of friends I hadn't seen in over 3 years so we met there during a visit back to my home town. I was told we needed to get there by 11:30am on weekdays or we might not get a table, so that's the time we met but we had no trouble being seated. The waiter offered... More

While the Americanized Chinese items on the menu are good, I'm sure, it's the more authentic entries that keep me coming back. Pork with bamboo shoots, fried scallion pancakes, Mongolian lamb, and their addictive juicy dumplings...haven't had a bad bite yet.

I wen there for a business lunch, and was very happy with the entire experience. My and my lunch mate's meals were delicious, and the soup was very good. The service was quick and courteous, and the charge was reasonable. While we ate, the subdued lighting and tasteful decorations provide a great, quite atmosphere. I highly recommend this location.

The Tea House is not for tea/scones/jams/jellies, though they do serve tea; Chinese tea that is. The Tea House is a quaint little Chinese restaurant housed in the building formerly occupied by the Bakers Square Restaurant. With much renovation on the inside, it now boasts oriental furniture and art work with some cutesy window booths. The menu had quite a... More

A place that you go out of your way to visit.. my brother introduced us to this restaurant and to juicy buns which are so delicious. Never disappoints. Always hoping to find a spot that's closer that compares but it never tastes the same. This Tea House location is superior to the one near the U of M. As another... More

While the restaurant is not huge, it has a great menu and excellent food, and servers who really know each item on the menu. It's dim sum selection is not huge but enough to satisfy a minor craving, and their regular dishes are well-prepared and there is a good variety of things you don't see on "normal" Asian menus.
