Beautiful surroundings complement the delicious spread of far east inspired take on afternoon tea. The service is absolutely fantastic with friendly and warm explanations for the different dishes. Highly recommended.
Overall I would recommend this as it is a nice alternative to a traditional tea.
I liked the setting, being able to smell the teas, the little bird was a nice touch. I like the tea cocktails to start too.
I liked the savoury broth and the savouries although the soft egg was a bit sickly which didn’t help as the rest of the tea was overwhelmingly sweet. There was nothing fruity or refreshing to break up the sweetness.
The initial welcome was poor. A member of staff was on the phone and had her back to use for several minutes with no greeting at all. The service during the tea was good.
Unfortunately both female toilets were blocked which was unpleasant.
Overall good, but could definitely be improved.
I booked the afternoon tea for my mum's birthday and it was amazing! The concept is such an interesting and new idea. Everything was so beautifully prepared, the best afternoon tea I've been to so far. Thank you so much for the amazing experience, my mum thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the food. Will most definately be booking again soon!
This was a delightful and innovative take on the afternoon tea. The service was attentive and the food quality was extremely high. Empty plates were quickly restocked. All the thoughtful touches made for a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
This new addition is a terrific contribution to luxury tea offerings in Mayfair. Absolutely unique they have done a good job translating the quintessential english afternoon tea into their very own chinese version mixing sweet and savoury. Still relatively new so a bit quiet but I can only think its going to get busier and busier. Great option for afternoon tea.
