    Chado -Pasadena was a huge disappointment. Service was terrible. We had a waiter who didn’t speak good English and so my order was totally messed up. We had to beg to get menus and then were totally left alone the entire meal. No one offered to give us more hot water or check in on our meal. We were constantly trying to get the attention of staff. So unpleasant. The scone I ordered with my tea service was over baked and hard as a rock. The sandwiches were not fresh tasting. My friends didn’t like their paninis as they were cold and didn’t taste good. The food was just terrible. I have not had such an unpleasant experience at a restaurant like this in a long time. Not sure why this restaurant had 4 stars out of 5. The food was expensive. I don’t mind expensive food if it tastes good but this was downright awful. The bathroom is shared with another restaurant and it was dirty. I would not ever recommend this place to anyone. Beware!!

    I used to enjoy this tea room so much. However I was very disappointed this visit. They were very understaffed. Took around 20 minutes for someone to take our order. Then another 30 minutes for our food to arrive. Food was not to its usual quality. Honestly couldn’t wait to leave.

    I recently visited the Chado Tea Room in Pasadena for their Afternoon Tea service while on vacation, and it was a delightful experience. The variety of teas available is impressive, and the pretty teapot add a charming touch. I chose the Shrangi LA green tea and loved it, and my friends enjoyed their selections as well. We requested numerous substitutions for our sandwiches and desserts, which were accommodated without issue. Although a few items were initially missed, the staff quickly rectified it when we brought it to their attention. The Tea was delicious, and the sandwiches and desserts were equally enjoyable. The strawberries were particularly sweet, and the jam was delectable. The scones were clearly homemade, both in appearance and taste. Service was excellent, albeit not perfect, but considering how busy they were, I wouldn't recommend visiting if you're in a rush. However, when we were attended to, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Overall, I highly recommend the Chado Tea Room and look forward to returning on my next visit to town.

    The only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars all the way across was the fact they seemed a bit short staffed and it took more than 15 mins to settle our bill - otherwise a beautiful experience and I would highly recommend

    I been to many tea restaurants around the town. This is by far the best I have been too. Sitting on the covered patio out front is delightful. The inside is a bit noisy and not as cute. The food and the tea were excellent. They really accommodated gluten free and vegetarian options. Be sure to call ahead so they are aware of your dietary needs. You can also buy their tea at the counter. Service is slow a few times I needed to go inside to find help. However it was well worth it for we got for the price. Highly recommend.

    The desserts do not taste like freshly made. The cookies and macarons taste like they are from boxes. The sandwiches and scones taste worse than mediocre. Other than the food, the service is terrible. We are Chinese and we made a reservation r party of 4. They assigned us to a table that’s on the road side. There was another table available.I asked whether we could take that one. The girl told me that table was for party of 5. Then I just took the table on the road side. A little later, they put four white ladies to that table. And what’s worse, I found five tea cups pre-set on our table. This made me really uncomfortable.

    Came for a post-graduation tea party with my daughter and her aunts. Lovely setting, sweet teapots and cups, hot scones and chocolates - and a cup of vanilla ice cream with a Congratulations written in chocolate on the plate. Thank you!! We loved it.
