A hidden gem!

I have fallen in love with this little place. It's great to see that there is a vegetarian place here in Alice. They have my favourite food that we call "Not Chicken", which is just SFC on their menu, but it's amazing! Big fan of tea and they have a wonderful selection. I haven't had a chance to sample much...

The Tea Shrine is a great place to have lunch, with its huge selection of authentic Asian food and drinks, including steam buns, tofu curry and delicious curry fried rice. The service is quick and efficient, with indoor and out door table settings, friendly staff and good service, it makes a nice meeting place for visitors to Alice Springs, and... More

What a surprising find, especially for vegetarians. Pleasant staff, tasty menu - I've been a few times and enjoyed sushi-style food, tasty tofu, nice juices and milk shakes. Great selection of teas to buy. Courtyard seating with misters much appreciated in the summer months.

Very pleasant small quiet venue. A good selection of fine teas and simple quality food to eat. Good place for a laid back lunch with a friend

Average food. Good service. After seeing the reviews I was expecting so much more. I enjoyed the mixed entry and the noodle soup was good but I wouldn't go back. Healthier veggie options around.

The Tea Shrine is a favourite for our family including my Aunts, cousins and Grand Uncle! Great, tasty vegan food in a friendly atmosphere. Food that everyone loves, not just vegans! Highly recommended. :)

I loved this place and went there several times while in Alice in December. I liked the changing daily menu. All the food was good. Relaxed atmosphere. Nice, thoughtful people running the business. The most extraordinary range of different types of tea to buy - great presents to take home.

Small portions but fresh and tasty . There is a nice outside area and great variety of teas. The price could be less (according to the size of the portions) but maybe I have to give a try to the other dishes (I had the vegetarian tom yum soup)

Stopped in to grab some takeaway for lunch and found it most pleasing. The feel of the counter and menu setup/display is a little confusing seeming to be halfway between a takeaway/Delli and a restaurant. They really could do with a large menu board above the counter that explains things fully and indicates what is in the steamer and pie... More
