Le Thé is a lovely and tiny restaurant in the Planpalais area in Geneva. The food was really good, although the service is very slow. Order a nice chinese tea and have some patience. Definetly not fast food. If you go with this mindset, you will certainly enjoy the experience, as I did.

Having heard good things about this restaurant I was very disappointed by the actual experience. The service was slow and not too friendly and the dimsum were average at best. Really lacking any flavour. The only positives were the beef broth and the tea.

We went there because my boyfriend's colleague told him that the best dim sum were the best of Geneva.

We arrived at 9pm and the restaurant was crowded (you have only 6 tables). The place is really tiny, but once seated it is ok. The setting is really nice with many teapots and a charming atmosphere. The waitress was not talkative but very friendly in her way. The food was excellent (I took the vegetarian dim sum and the spinach dim sum, and we also tried the steam bread which is surprisingly good). The service was not too long and we ate within an hour.
We tried a dessert and it was not the good one... The dessert 30.a (with rice, green tea, peanuts, sugar and sesames) is... surprising... It did not really seduce our taste buds. But I will definitely try another dessert next time.

The bill was around 55CHF for 3 pieces of steam bread, 10 dim sum by person, 2 beers and a dessert. Very reasonable!

Two tips:
- Make a reservation 1 or 2 days in advance
- Take some cash as credit/debit cards are not accepted

This restaurant is having the best dimsums I have ever had in Geneva. The price is reasonable, the place is small, but with a good ambiance to make you comfortable. Tea was excellent. The place is really hidden and at first I thought they are just selling teas. Go a bit earlier than 8pm, it's full and the service is a bit slow. Definitely would recommend.
