Tadshikische Teestube is hard to pinpoint. Initially, I thought it just had a unique name but now I know it refers to the region where the interior design comes from.
The décor is a mesh between Southeast Asia, India, Morocco and the Middle East. The intricate wooden ceiling reminds one of Burma or Thailand. The panel paintings seem like a confusion of Indian figures in a Japanese print done in the European style. The cushions on the floor remind one of Turkey or Morocco.
Then, the house specialty is the Russian tea that comes in a huge ornate samovar (google for images) and served with different sweets such as dried fruits, colored sugar and candies.
The clientele is composed of the students and professors of Humboldt University and is housed in the beautiful theater palace at Festungsgraben. [more]
