Great selection of teas, the staff is very attentive in helping you select the tea that would suit you best. They also offer for sale all the available teas. Information about yoga classes and other events.

I had a most enjoyable evening listening to Bossa Nova at the Tea house. Great atmosphere, really warm and cozy, you feel like at home! The food is truly delicious with a choice of healthy dishes, and hundreds of teas. The service is perfect, the prices are good, in general - a great place to visit with your friends or loved one, listening to live music. I'd go again.

The name is incorrect. It is actually called the Veda House, and that is more appropriate because it is much more than just a tea house. Of course, teas from all over the world are the highlight, but healthy, fresh food is equally the highlight. Go upstairs to sprawl on the floor with cushions and low tables, and avoid gazing at couples smooching all over. Focus on the menu, the food and the huge variety of teas and other drinks.

I have been here three times now, each time hoping it would get better. This is a great place to hear live music, while sitting at tables and meeting with friends. However, each time I've been there the restaurant tricks all of the guests. No matter what time you arrive, before the music starts, after the music starts they demand that you pay a fee for the band. They do this AFTER the band has finished playing, with no worrying - they just add it on your bill at the end. There is no sign on the door that says there is a cover charge or if you enter you must pay - there is no warning or anything. So, one of the people in the group arrived late with only 15 minutes left of the band playing and the restaurant demanded that he pay 7 leva too!!! After arguing with the waitress that it is illegal to take a pen and just add on how ever much money they want on the bottom of the check (illegal because this is not claimed to the government or taxed) she was horribly rude and started yelling at us!!!

It would be a completely different story if they posted a sign on the door stating there was a cover charge or had someone at the door collecting money before you entered. But, not to tell anyone until the end is rude and cheeky.

The service is terribly slow - with one waitress for the entire place.
NEVER AGAIN, NEVER!!!!
