I have honestly never experienced such rude customer serivce in NYC. I went in to buy tea, and when I asked where I could find the teas, the person leaning behind the counter just pointed, no comment. When I finished picking out the teas myself (as if there would be some helpful person or even descriptions of what I was purchasing), I asked where I could pay. Another person, with her back to me (she hadn't turned around for the first few minutes I stood behind her waiting to be helped) literally snapped at me "Here, but you have to wait". I will never go back and will also make sure to tell anyone interested not to go as well!

We decided to try this tea house but to our dissapointment it was horrible. The service was horrible and the waiter ignored us and was not very nice to us. We were served tea with a dry "flower" on the side as if we were supposed to know what to do with the flower when our pot was already filled with the tea. Our bagel was also not very tasty. I dont think i will be visiting any time soon. I d rather make my own cup of tea at home.

wow - what a waste of time. we got the tea within a reasonable amount of time. BUT it took about 2 hours for us to get a bowl of soup and two sandwiches. we could have literally flown back home and eaten in the time it took us to get our food. i was about to beat the crap out of the waitstaff. after over an hour of waiting, the waiter told us and three other tables "about 5 more minutes" for our food. the other tables got their food about twenty minutes later, but for some reason making another two sandwiches and ladling soup into a bowl for us took another half hour. mind you, when we were all first seated, at least half the tables had either already eaten or had food on their tables. after everything is said and done, we wasted about three hours of our lives to eat at teany for average food and the worst service ever experienced by man. oh yeah, and they add the tip into the bill by combining it with the tax (but only calling it tax). they must have known they would otherwise not be getting anything.

This teany veggie food bar is awesome, I checked it on this website and I was sold immediately to the menu, the crowd, host and servers were terrific...Simple but good and the tea is delicious..order the Tany chef salad!!!Michael Belgium Antwerp...

Being a vegetarian in new york limits your options of delicious restaurants to visit. Teany is bright and friendly. I would recommend the simple salad and welsh rarebit, they also have daily specials and keep board games there for your amusement. Tea and scrabble, what a great way to spend the afternoon!

Teany was a major disappointment. We ordered several things from the limited menu, and each one was lacking. Sandwich bread was stale, fillings were sparse, and service was awful. Worst of all, the restaurant has a funky, yucky smell! Try Grilled Cheese NYC on Ludlow instead for something nearby. If it's vegan food you're after, there is nothing better than Candle Cafe on the Upper East Side.
