You order at the counter then carry your food to your table. Have to read the menu on the wall. It's a long menu with lots of options especially on weekends when you can order off the breakfast menu during lunch time. On our most recent visit we each ordered a chicken kabob then ordered a couple of side dishes that we could split. On another visit we sampled the soup and the french toast. We've been happy with all our food choices at teaism.

Excellent food, good vibe, and something on the menu for everyone. Koi pond on lower level was also fun for the kids.

We loved this place. We were looking for breakfast in the area and so pleased with our delicious food. As soon as you walk in the door the aroma of comforting spices greet you.
We can't wait to go back again for breakfast and even try it for lunch.

Love this place. Had the udon with vegetables and hibiscus tea and side of broccoli sauteed in sesame oil. Hubbs had the brisket tacos. All delish.
The food is ready FAST and HOT. You can eat upstairs (crowded, lines) or use your wait staff skills and take your tray down the stairs for a more quiet meal near the koi pond.
Location convenient to Spy Museum and Ford's Theater and many more!

I visited this restaurant for lunch with my husband during a quick trip to DC. Neither of us have a lot of experience with this style of food, but we enjoyed it! Our food was prepared quickly and the ingredients were all fresh and delicious. The servings we received were very large, so we would need to split something if we go back. I had vegetable curry and he had chicken curry. We are both so glad we tried it.
