Very quaint spot that you could easily miss driving by. They have the best Sesame Chicken in town! A lot of food for the money! Not your typical staff but they get the job done and are very friendly / helpful

I don't blame the delivery dude, he made it within the hour as promised. I must have said 3 for dinner 5 times and yet we only received two plates. Go figure. The food, average at best. The most enjoyable part was the egg roll. There has to be more options in the area.

If you decide on the delivery, there is a minimum purchase required. I think it's 20, but I am not sure. I highly recommend the General Tso's Chicken. Dine in/carry out/delivery. Conveniently located to downtown Columbia, The Avenues, and local businesses.

Tea Pot has been around a long time, it has had ups and downs, but it always tried to do its best. The most flavorful food at a Chinese Restaurant I've had in many years and it was at the TEA Pot.. Some of the customers at lunch time felt the same way, for $6.25 who could blame them, i... More

I've ordered three times from Tea Pot in the last month, and all three experiences have been bad. Incorrect food items, horrible food prep, etc. My last order included a beef and chicken dish where the beef was so tough it was inedible and a seafood soup that tasted like it had a cup of salt dumped in it. It's... More

For chicken noodle soup and chicken lo me in, not much chicken to be found. I wouldn't say it was disgusting like another reviewer, but it was disappointing. Wouldn't get take out here again. Maybe Courtyard Marriott should stop recommending.

Very bad experience with this place. We got takeout and 1/2 of group was sick all night. Should have read review before going.

Amazing, authentic Chinese food! You have to make the easy trip to visit this place in person. Ask for Kelsey, the manager or one of the owners. If they're not around make sure to ask for the 'special' (authentic) menu. Order any dish on the secret menu! Enjoy! This place stays a favorite even though we moved away from the... More
