This is a wonderful change from the typical coffee house! The elaborately decorated exterior and interior are directly from Boulders' sister city of Dushanbe Tajikistan. The open and welcoming space makes for a pleasant afternoon tea, which can be selected from a huge list. An experience to enjoy.

It is a unique beautiful setting ...and true to being a Tea House. The selection and flavors of the tea were extensive and very good. We choose the filled crepes to accompany our team. The were filled with lightly weetened creamed cheese and topped fruit that was gently candied with a light syrup. Excellent. Their menu also included breakfast and... More

The beautifully maintained Dushanbe Teahouse looks out onto Boulder's Central Park and has a view of the Flatirons, and is a gem of a place! I loved it so much that I held my wedding rehearsal dinner in the garden patio of the teahouse. The food is great (best Chai tea ever), the service is fantastic, and the atmosphere is... More

I wanted to go to this restaurant for quite some time, so when in Boulder I knew I should not miss the opportunity. This is a restaurant that is beautiful and out of the routine places you may go. The architecture, decor and sittings inside are just plain beautiful! However, it is crowded, and reminded me a lot of the... More

One of a kind. Where else in the states can you find an authentic Tajik teahouse that has been painstakingly re-assembled in all of its artistic & architectural glory? I could have spent all day here - its like a museum and restaurant in one! The decor is unlike anything I've ever seen. Each column is completely carved with ornate... More

Excellent Persian decor, great food and services. Many types of tea leaves to choose from. Although there is not a lot of variety of breakfast choice but all of them are good. Highly recommend.

The food was very good and the service was slightly above average. The building the restaurant is located in is fantastic and makes the overall experience very enjoyable.

A unique restaurant hard by Boulder Creek in center of downtown Boulder's park area. The best place in the summer to have a leisurely lunch. Recently noted in an article titled "36 Hours in Boulder" which appeared in the August 18, 2016, Travel section of the New York Times, the Dushanbe Teahouse offers great food and atmosphere rain or shine.

The actual teahouse is a gift from Boulder's sister city in Tajikistan. Parts of it were built in Tajikistan and assembled by builders from Tajikistan here in Boulder. The architecture and design are beautiful and the tiles and statuary are amazing. You feel that you have taken a trip to another part of the world. You can sit inside or... More

The Teahouse offers a huge selection of teas, great food, and indoor/outdoor areas in a unique setting. The building is beautiful - imported from Boulder's sister city Dushanbe, it offers a little bit of Tajikistan right in downtown Boulder.

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.
