4 out of 5 stars The butternut squash dumplings are not vegan because they have egg. The TLT sandwich is my favorite, without mayo. Seriously, the marinated tofu rocks-add tahini too. yum! The jook with tofu is great too! The salads are always good with fresh fruit and the perfect amount of dressing and flavor. Curry is mediocre and not very appealing. A little overpriced, but I love the service, ambiance and TEA! emsoprano

3.5 out of 5 stars The place looks very nice and has good service. The combinations it has are cool in that they have maybe 3 small dishes of a specific cuisine, served with a matching tea. However, the food itself is unfortunately mediocre and not worth going for at any price, much less the relatively high ones they charge. Good for people more into looks than taste. Not good for a food lover or tea lover. meliae

4 out of 5 stars I had the ginger-tofu maki bowl, which was amazing - delicate tofu, Oolong rice, crisp nori, and butternut squash/yellow squash pickles. Cool peppermint lavendar tea was earthy but good. PikkuMyy
