“Tried it twice and would not go back”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

We ordered six different dishes at dinner and no one thought that they were very flavorful or worthwhile and two were just awful. We complained to the waiter of the problems and they said that is how they should be prepared and reluctantly made a swap which were again just so so at best.
The first time just two of us went for lunch and were not impressed but thought we would try it again for dinner, since sometimes lunches are just so so in some places.
I could not recommend the Green Tea unless they make some major changes to the way they prepare dishes and add quality and flavor to dishes.

“Excellent, fresh food in a modern setting”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

We were pleasantly surprised by our recent visit to Green Tea, which opened earlier in 2011. They spent a great deal of time and effort on the renovations, and it was well worth it - the results are beautiful. The restaurant is modern and bright with an edgy asian decor. The owner is on hand and is also the chef - he walked several dishes out to us himself and was very amiable, as was our waitress. He also sent out some complimentary beef triangles - fantastic!

The Orange Flavored Shrimp is by far the best I have had anywhere; instead of the typical overdone, crispy/chewy version that is typically served at other restaurants, this one was light, fresh, and cooked perfectly. The shrimp egg foo young, house fried rice and pan fried dumplings were all delicious; all dishes are well prepared and presented, and exceptionally fresh and flavorful. We will be back!
