“We had a great girls tea out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

The name "Chado Downtown" might confuse readers. This is Chado located downtown, but didn't come up on the search when I typed in Chado. We had a great time and the food was delicious. Even the young girls enjoyed it. We opted for the $18 and split $3, and an extra pot of tea. We had peppermint tea and apricot and both were delightful. The "afternoon tea" came with the tower of foods which included 4 sandwiches. The girls likes the chicken sandwich the best, but the salmon was great and the turkey/cranberry too. Nothing was not eaten and it was a great time. The scone was on the 2nd self and came with delectable cream and jam. The bottom shelf had the cookie and a small dessert, both were fantastic. We happily paid and told them we enjoyed it so much. Only men were serving that day, but they were happy to have us. We called in for a reservation but didn't need it. the place filled up about 12 noon. Outside waterfall was not working but it was still beautiful and decorated a bit for the holiday. We'd recommend it and we will be happy to eat there again.

“English tea is great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Choosing from the wide selection of teas could take all day, but the waitstaff are helpful. Enjoyed the English tea with scones and delicious finger sandwiches. But maybe the desserts are my favorite.

“Cute Tea Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

During my vistt to Los Angeles, my uncle was so adamant about taking me and my daughter to the Japanese American museum. Before we began our tour he wanted us to try out the tea shop attached to the builiding. Beautiful garden and friendly employees. We walked out with four different teas.
