    I am a fan of Cherish Finden so I was very excited to attend. I was not disappointed! The food was really good! Not too sweet, just the right amount, the pastries were so beautifully crafted and very delicately made. Cherish even made an appearance and greeted all the tables. She was very lovely, we had some chats with her and had our photo taken with her! The only feedback I would say is I wished that the food was refillable as most afternoon tea places are, as we were still hungry. Although it was pricey however, I would like to attend again in the future.

    Dear Cammi, Thank you for your time to review your recent experience with us at The Orchid Lounge and your wonderful feedback on our food offering and the engaging moment with Cherish.

Kopitiam was authentic, and refined. Gorgeous, from the crockery to the furniture and actual orchids, ambience just right. Loved it! Will definitely be back. We did not meet Cherish as we had hoped - we are huge fans of her!! Hopefully next time!! Bravo!!!!! 💖

    Absolutely delicious afternoon tea! I am gluten and dairy intolerant and my dietary requirements were met with ease by the staff. One of the best afternoon teas I’ve had and the scones were ‘buttery’ and delicious and the dessert plate was outstanding and looked just as good as my friend’s, who can eat everything, which is very rare! The dumplings and rice rolls were also excellent and a great savoury alternative to a more standard afternoon tea with sandwiches, although there was also the option to have this as well. Would highly recommend.

    We had the singapore-style afternoon tea. Every little bit of it was amazing. Staff were knowledgable and keen to help and shared lots of details about what we were eating, and also able to offer advice on tea selection to match what we were eating. Would have never occurred to me to do that. Would definitely go again.

    We had an incredible afternoon tea. The food was simply superb and the staff were all incredibly friendly and courteous without being pretentious. The afternoon tea is very expensive but, for us, this was a very special treat and we were well aware how much it was going to be before we arrived. Although we probably wouldn't go again due to the price, it was an occasion we will remember forever and we loved every mouthful!

    it's not worth the money..it's too expensive for the price similar to The Ritz Berkeley and Savoy's. The Lounge is not what I was expecting, so basic and you could see people in the streets while having an expensive tea,that's the view they offer for £72pp plus service charge, they could have put the venue somewhere else in their building as they are next to Sushisamba and Duck and Waffle which got the view of the city, It's a very disappointing for a newly opened hotel. Waste of Money

    Great food, ambience and service. Singaporean style afternoon tea was a first. Highlights would be the scones and the Christmas dessert finale!

    The best Afternoon Tea experience I have ever had! I took my Sister and Daughter for a Birthday treat and they were equally as impressed. The service was second to none, catering for three specific dietary requirements. We also had the good fortune to meet Cherish which was amazing. We will be returning and would highly recommend.

    Booked for my wife’s 40th birthday and it did not disappoint. Comfortable and relaxing surroundings and impeccable service. The waiting staff were so warm, friendly and helpful and truly made it a wonderful experience, sharing their knowledge of the items included within the afternoon tea. We both opted for the Kopi Tiam which was a wonderful twist on the traditional British afternoon tea, with all the influences from Singapore. Every bite was delicious and flavour-packed and we both agreed it was possibly the best afternoon tea we have had to date. My wife was also delighted to have met Cherish Finden who came out of the kitchen to greet guests. To top it all of they brought out an extra plate with a slice of tart and a Happy Birthday message complete with candle! Absolutely wonderful experience and we will definitely return for another visit.

    Absolutely fantastic. Beautiful lounge, the service was exceptional- all the staff delighted in telling us how the Kopi Tiam was created. Food was amazing and truly different from the traditional sandwich afternoon teas.

    This was one of the most beautiful, delicious and exciting afternoon tea experiences I have ever enjoyed, and being someone who goes too often to admit, I feel compelled to write about this and share this with fellow enthuasists. The Kopi Tiam Afternoon Tea with a Festive Sprinkling - and that exactly describes how the Christmas spirit is involved in the menu - it's placed delicately throughout and despite enjoying this at the end of November, it definitely put me in the holiday spirit without feeling too premature. The use of story telling and subtle food theatre was a pleasure to experience. Every single morsel was a delight to eat - visual perfection and bursting with flavour that just warmed my palate and my soul. From the delicate but punchy flavoured Dim Sum to a plate of elegant, visually stunning patisserie that was a festive story in itself. The highlights for me were the Taste of Umani which I literally could eat a tray of and now have a new favourite flavour - soy sauce caramel is just like salted caramel but on a whole new level! Then the Matcha Scones paired with the coconut Jam - which was so delicious I was eating it off the spoon! The scones themselves were like little light souffles. The combination of matcha here and coconut pushed me out of my obsession with traditional cream tea rituals. We also got the chance to meet Cherish herself who was a delight, and I really enjoyed hearing about the origins and meaning behind the afternoon tea. You can tell every single component is designed, created and made with love. What made the experience even better was what Cherish described herself as that unique asian hospitality which makes you feel like you are being welcome into someone's home. The afternoon tea despite the cost,and the luxury hotel setting makes you feel relaxed and instantly at ease. I'd highly recommend! 5/5
