    Beautiful Chinese twist on an afternoon tea. Great service. Lovely ambience. Amazing food. Free refills. Shame you can’t take any leftovers home, but still excellent value for money compared to other afternoon teas in London. Would definitely go back and recommend to others

    Such a memorable visit for the Chinese-inspired Afternoon Tea at Kai Mayfair, and easily exceeded our expectations. The service was second to none! Our waiter was incredibly attentive, and really ensured we got the best out of our experience. All the food was delicious, and we were offered complimentary refills of any items we particularly liked. We also thoroughly enjoyed the overall ambience, the way the restaurant was decorated and the table set-up which truly enhanced the uniqueness and imaginative take on the classic afternoon tea. We really appreciated the care and attention made in all the small details. Would certainly recommend and return again without a doubt!

    We were really looking forward to this and we weren’t disappointed. Thoroughly enjoyable experience, setting was really tasteful, service was discreet and not intrusive at all and most importantly the food was exquisite. The only thing stopping me giving 5 stars for everything was that they seemed to forget our second request and it came very late in the day. That aside, it was a truly brilliant experience.

    We had a wonderful time- it was a great birthday treat with lovely food! I absolutely loved the Asian twist on a traditional British afternoon tea! The service was great, and we were always checked on and offered more food when we finished! It was so lovely! They even brought out a birthday treat for me! I 100% recommend for any occasion or just a special day out!

    We had the most delightful time at Kai’s for afternoon tea. We were particularly pleased that the tables still had a measure of distance and the staff were masked. Everything was delicious and it was a soothing sense of luxury.

    Everything was great at this afternoon tea with a very cute twist! The attention to detail with the Chinese whispers theme was incredible. Lots of very sweet touches, from the cute quotes (all different) on each menu, to the little birds. The service was exceptional. Can’t wait to go back!!

    Came for the afternoon tea which was very good. Very good experience. If you enjoy South east asian food, you will enjoy Kai afternoon tea. Also ordered wasabi prawns which was very nice. I didn't enjoy the crispy duck very much and felt that it was a bit dry. We were allowed to have a second round of food but only the savouries came. On the whole, it was very good experience and will come back again for the afternoon tea and prawns.
