Initially we called to make a reservation and were unequivocally told that they did not take reservations. Accordingly, we showed up for dinner without a reservation. We were disappointed and perturbed that the receptionist told us a different story, that they did take reservations for...More

Great tea selection in a beautiful and serene venue. Truly enjoyed sitting by the fountain while eating! We were able to walk right in for lunch, but arrived a little earlier than the noon rush.

The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is nestled against the Rocky Mountain Foothills in Boulder Colorado. Sitting alongside Boulder Creek in Central Park, the Teahouse is considered one of Boulder's most attractive and popular tourist attractions, as well as being a local favorite for great food, tea, and atmosphere. Completely built by hand without the use of any power tools, the Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a gift to their sister city, Boulder. It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration. The elaborate and creative teahouse now sits as a reminder to the citizens of Boulder to value cultural diversity, global cooperation, and international friendship.
