It was n't my intent to review chado; however, i am compelled to do so after stumbling on some of the BOGUS points that were raised. Though it is upto the individual to judge the experience, i do think this is a very decent establishment with a reasonablely priced menu because i have had 'afternoon tea' for $45 and above but the experience at chado surpass all of those places for less than $20. I do agree after looking at the tea selections and the place in general; they do need more dessert choices. neverthless, their sandwiches and scones are my personal picks of any other tea room in the area. infact after a long day in caltech I love the punjab and chicken cranberry with the tomato soup, and a scone for dessert . since i frequent chado and i even have arranged my sister's shower in early January 2008 with out a doubt i can say i adore this place. what attracted me long time ago was a tea tasting class i attended and the skill and knowledge of the guys behind the counter. finally i do think this is the only tea place where they have a tea room and wide selection of teas in one roof..OVER 300.,and a fine tea wares. i definitely recommend the tea room to any Tea lover.
