This place close to West Lake, does a good job on the interior with a lot of different seating options - some very traditional. It is quite a large interior as well. It is a very traditional Chinese style and it is pretty impressive. The waiting staff all wear very traditional dress too. Food is a buffet and whilst not... More

We were taken to this teahouse by our awesome guide who wanted us to experience a popular way to dine out like a local in Hangzhou. Since we were a larger group, we got a private room with no view, but if you have about 4 people, you can fit into a booth along the windows overlooking the street, which... More

We got a nice private room for the 4 of us, the food-buffet was plenty to choose from vegetable/fish/meat/fruit even sushi. They helped us as good as they could with us not speaking any Chinese and them almost no English, as we were confused about the prices for tea, until we found out food was included and they showed us...

This tea house is horrible, unfriendly and distrustful service. It is crowded and noisy, and we got a private room with view on the escalators. Not very good atmosphere for a relaxing cup of tea. But the worst is that at the entrance, they told us that our two daughters (11 and 9) would be charged half price. When seated... More

The main disadvantage is that the price is cheaper, too many people to queue up, forever. The food tastes very good

Nice place to sit and drink tea, eat from the free buffet (well paid for in the price of the tea) and chat with friends.

A co-worker took me to the tea house. Nothing too special about the food nor anything to scream home about regarding the tea. Overall expensive for the tea, and they do have an all you can eat buffet. Not that I would expect the best food in the world at a buffet, but some of it is not super appealing.... More
