Reviews for Imperial Tea Court

I love this place, but they've been toying with my emotions... ever since the lockdown, it says they're open-- but it's not true. Given their yelp announcement that they would reopen on Thursday, July 16th, my partner and I actually drove all the way up from Oakland... AND THEY WERE CLOSED. Can you please stop teasing me? Update your correct hours so I can move on with my life and find another noodle place. ;)

I came here yesterday to order the fried brown rice with shrimp. I paid $15+ $2 tip for it so it came out it be $17. I put the Togo box in the paper back that they got me and 10 minutes later I found out that oil from the fried rice was getting all over my bag, ipad, wallet, and phone hence why the picture is blurry because there were oil in the lenses !! The brown rice was so oily that the rice kept separating with all the shrimp and vegetables. The customer service was bad full review
I am going to start with the bad. I have been going to this place for a couple decades despite the bad! It is expensive. The service is often slow. The attitude is aloof, even a long time patron will never be noticed. Good luck seeing the chefs! It looks like a vault back there. Why 4 stars? I love the soup and the teas. It is just uniquely exquisite. I wish they could step up their game and make it more homey for us veterans. You expect that from your tea place. Lucky for full review
