This was my second visit. Both times we had excellent service amid a gorgeous dining room. The food and teas were delicious and reasonable. I went with a vegetarian and had no problem finding something they enjoyed. We shared a hummus platter with veggies, pita and olives. That with tea was $13.

Good food, I had the spicy Peanut noodles. If you eat here, or if you don't, check out the inside with the wood carved support poles and decoration. Worth a stop in Boulder.

For 57 years I resisted ever going to a tea house. My streak is broken and this place was a treat. We had a fabulous breakfast in outdoor seating located along a beautiful stream.

We live in Boulder and always take out-of-town guests to the Tea House. This last trip may be our last. We always expect slow service, but enjoy drinks while waiting. The service was very slow-and obviously the menu had been changed and cheapened. Rice pilaf had probably been cooking a few hours, sandwiches were dry, salad tasteless and one dish... More

We felt transported to another world when entering this beautiful restaurant. The service was prompt and the food was delicious. We also very much enjoyed the house specialty Chai with the free refills. A place to come back to when we visit Boulder again.

We went there with friends and did not have the food, just tea and some amazing tea-inspired alcoholic drinks. I really recommend this place just for the ambiance and the character. The tea selection is amazing and the outdoor seating in the summer is super pleasant.

The tea house was a gift to the city of Boulder from its sister city, Dushanbe,Tajikistan. It was done by hand by craftsmen in Dushanbe and was then disassembled and shipped in crates to Boulder. The building inside and out is beautiful. There is also a lovely rose garden out in front of the tea house. They serve teas, of... More

Excellent food, and service! The place is amazingly lovely inside and out. We were there for a wedding reception! The servers were the best! I would recommend a visit and learn the history. Nice rose garden and outside seating too!

We were told that this Tea house was a must see while visiting Boulder. We went for a visit to take a look and stayed for a very refreshing light meal of hummus & veggies along with iced teas. The story of the sister city relationship is powerful, especially in todays' troubled world. The craftsmanship is like nothing I've seen... 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.
