Fresh and light - Edit

I ate here on my last trip to Louisville and would eat here weekly if I lived there. I had the steamed rice rolls which were served atop a salad of fresh greens and veg along with a sweet dipping sauce. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the staff are pleasant and helpful.

Pros: fresh and light, good value, friendly staff

LOVE it! - Edit

Probably my favorite spot to go in Louisville for a special treat. Their tea selection is fantastic (although I wish they had more organic and fair trade options) and their vegan lemon cupcakes are soooooo good.

Pros: cupcakes, environment, friendly staff

Cons: pricey

Deliciously Different - Edit

I am not a vegetarian, and I was not excited about my first trip with friends to the Zen Tea House. We shared several dishes and to my surprise, I liked them all! The food was fresh and flavorful, it was much more filling than I could have imagined, and the atmosphere and staff made it a unique and fun experience. The huge selection of teas was a fun treat and the vegan chocolate cupcake was indeed a "religious experience" as described by our server. I have gone back again and taken others with me, who enjoyed it as much as I did. I plan to make eating at the Zen Tea House a part of every visit to Louisville.

Pros: excellent food, healthy cuisine, good value

Cons: None

Zen Tea House - A Superlative Experience - Edit

Zen Tea House is one of my favorite places to be in Louisville. It is a beautiful oasis of serenity... and deliciousness! Everything I have tasted or sipped here has been nothing short of exquisite. The all-vegetarian and mostly vegan food on their inspiring menu is fresh and healthy. The staff are inviting and personable. The tea selection is unmatched by anywhere else in the city. I come here as often as I can and relish any opportunity to introduce as many people as possible to the delightful experience of Zen Tea House.

Pros: Superb tea selection, Excellent & Healthy Food, Beautiful ambiance and Friendly Staff

Great Tea, Great Food & Great Atmosphere - Edit

I've worked in many places included in my family's restaurant out of town and I have to say working with CoCo Tran has been a highlight and a refreshing experience. I have helped CoCo design the tea house for the past two years and after getting involved with the physical design, she asked if I would be willing to help with the overall design, menu and tea selection as well. It was a great opportunity for me and now I'm employed full time managing the Tea House. Of course I have a biased opinion, but I'm writing this to invite everyone to come and experience this incredible environment and share with us the amazing energy that CoCo has brought to our community. The food is 100% vegetarian (80% vegan I'd say) and we use as many organic products as possible including local produce. Our overall interior design is as eco-friendly and "green" as can be for an existing Victorian home in Crescent Hill and all of our disposable products ar bio-degradable and compostable. We have over 75 loose leaf teas, all of which can be enjoyed by the cup, pot or loose by the ounce to take home with you.
Please come and experience this tea house on your own and let us know what you think. We strive each day trying to create the best experience possible for everyone that walks through the door.

Pros: Eccletic Vegetarian Menu, Incredible Selection of Teas, Inviting Atmosphere
