“Delicious Food and Very Convenient to Movie Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

There were 3 of us that had dinner at 7:15 p.m. on Saturday evening. We stopped in and made reservations before going to a matinee. I'm glad we made reservations, because the place was packed when we arrived for dinner after seeing the movie. (We did notice the restaurant emptied out a lot within a half hour or so, so we think there were a lot of people having dinner before the 7-8 o'clock movies.)
We ordered the pan-fried dumplings, Kung Pao Chicken, King Pao Chicken Noodle, and the Chung King Spicy Chicken (the waiter told us this was Andrew Zimmern's favorite thing on the menu and he ate at the restaurant all of the time). We thought all of the food was delicious and the portions were so large that we brought about a 1/3 of each meal home.
The wine selection wasn't great, but I don't expect much of a selection from a Chinese Restaurant.
We will definitely be back. We love the feel of the neighborhood theater and Tea House restaurant right across the parking lot. It makes for a convenient night out.

“Typical”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

This restaurant has been in this location for many years. The food is typical for the venue. It is not great but it is good enough and worth a try.

“Good food outrages prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

The food is good but not worth the insane prices they want for there buffet. How many Chinese restaurants U know wants 9.45 for a lunch buffet that's just ridiculous.

“Their spicy bamboo tips...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2009

Their spicy bamboo tips and the dancing fish hot pot are two of the best Szechuan dishes I've ever had. However, I haven't been back to the Tea House in a few years, and I hear it's gone downhill due to LIttle Szechuan luring their head chef away.
