Stopped in for lunch on my last day in CO. I enjoyed the hibiscus tea cooler and a fresh veggie pasta dish. The menu want what I was expecting, but everything looked incredible. The place was packed, but the wait wasn't too bad for a small table.

We were a group of nine and had intended just to visit the teahouse and eat elsewhere. However, the environment was so pleasant and the menu so inviting that we decided to stay for lunch. Our group included four men so the usual "tea and little sandwiches" would not have been suitable. However, the Teahouse offered a variety of meals,... More

This is the Russian Tea House. I'm told it was purchased, disassembled, brought to Boulder and reassembled. Sometime a bit formal, which is really difficult to pull off in Boulder, the menu is limited but the offerings are really good.

Loved it, the atmosphere makes it great and the food and drinks are great. The service was great also. I did find that some people went in groups and they ordered some type of special desert tray that takes a day to prepare, I dont know what was on it but it looked great and fun. Next time I will...

Definitely an experience! Came here for breakfast early Sunday morning as I knew it gets pretty busy. They dont take reservations same day. Anyway the decor is beautiful. They have an interesting menu with an extensive tea list. I had the jasmine tea which was perfect for a cold day. Must take pictures and enjoy the view.

I stopped here for morning tea during a business trip to Boulder. This is a unique place to visit with very interesting architecture and incredible detail. The tea was very good and extremely reasonably priced.

This exquisite Tea House is a find. Even if you do not have time for dining walk around to see the architecture and colorful panels. It is beautifully composed and a lovely gift from Tajikistan to its Sister City of Boulder. I enjoyed lunch--chose the delicious wraps which were messy but very tasty. Choices are unusual and the waitstaff is... More

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.
