my yakisoba noodle Bowl was pretty good. Curry was okay. I think they're a little overpriced for what you yet. My friend had a breakfast burrito that looked really good and was probably a bargain for the price.

Excellent customizable dishes, beautifully prepared. Hole in the wall exterior, blink and you miss it.

I've known Ian for years and he is a phenomenal chef. Every time I go to Tea Kettle, I absolutely love what I get, be it the philly cheese steak, any noodle bowl, or the incredible potstickers. Do not miss this place.

While the atmosphere was just what the name suggests which was a basic cafe inside, but the food was great. The pot stickers were a hit for our family. The bowls were also popular and every enjoyed them.

The service was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was ok. They ran out of rice which is hard to believe for an Asian fusion restaurant. The food was a bit salty. Did not have high expectations.

This place is just a rating of 2 but I gave them a 3 for effort. They fall short on service, flavor and way too eclectic. They're trying to do too many different things and the food is barely ok.

I have lived just around the corner from this Cafe for a few years now and never realized how excellent the food is here. I say "surprised" because it does not look very impressive at first, but don't judge this one by the outside. Delicious,...More

The flavors are amazing, and the ingredients fresh. My favorite is the yakisoba noodles with trout and the mandarin sweet chili sauce. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Columbia Falls. I've started going every week.
