    Made the reservation. Reservation was confirmed. Got a reminder about the reservation and confirmed it. When we showed up the restaurant was empty and locked. Nobody answering phone. Looked like a mess in there. We had to eat elsewhere. ??no idea what happened but maybe this place is closed for good and forgot to delete their OpenTable account. It’s usually such a good restaurant but this was so lame.

    This is very surprising that at 3:15pm on Saturday, 3 of us are the only customers there. That is very odd that for the whole time until 4:45... no customers at all. This is very very odd that we don't enjoy it that much. Food is basic and everything is not as compared to what it is advertised or promoted in social media... The quietness is not what we want and I think that is because of it doesn't provide a good afternoon tea atmosphere. Sorry , I have to be honest to other people that might be thinking of going there.

    Beautiful, soaring light through the high, slanted atrium, truly lovely setting. Food was artistically presented and tasty, and there were a lot of items, so even though the price was a little higher than some places, we got more for it, so the value was pretty good. Menu had an Asian twist, which was attractive. We had a reservation for 2pm, but we were the only ones there at the time, so we had the place to ourselves. We opted for "fruit tea" instead of the usual pots of hot tea. The fruit tea was a delightful blend of clear fruit juices (peach, apple, a touch of passion fruit, maybe some orange) presented with colourful fruit garnishes. There were 7 savoury items and 4 dessert items! There were some really lovely flavour combinations, and everything was delicious; but there were also a couple of little shortcuts (I could tell some items were common store-bought things) that detracted a bit from the overall impression. But it was all beautiful and tasty, and we really enjoyed it.

    A very pretty place, service was great very friendly staff. We went to celebrate a birthday and they arranged balloons for us and also offered to help us take photos. The food was good, they are a tea place so I would recommend ordering the pastries, afternoon tea sets over the ramen and rice dishes. Overall, it was a great experience and we will be visiting again soon.

    Although the space and area are beautiful, the service and food were awful. The tea was pretty good. The washrooms were disgusting. I found plastic in my food. The servers didn't introduce the tower of high tea food, reluctantly they explained once asked. Very expensive and uncomfortable experience.

    ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE! I want my money back. Took my daughter there for her birthday. No greeting, no acknowledgement. Huge red flag, we were the only people in there. I told the person walking by we have a reservation and she just sat us without a word. After seated I told her it was my daughter’s birthday and she just blinked and walked away. We got the high tea set. I couldn’t believe what they served, it was actually funny. Thought all the food was for a Barbie, teeny tiny and tasted pre-made. They didn’t offer any sugar or milk for the tea, had to ask for it. They never once asked how anything was, they didn’t clear a single plate. Only 1/2 of the stuff listed on the menu came. Laughable, the ‘seasonal fruit bowl’ was 1/2 of an orange cut up into tiny cubes. I didn’t want to make a fuss there because it was my daughter’s birthday but I’m actually fuming. Came to over $68! I want someone to call me to give at least half my money back. Never had such terrible service. Also the servers couldn’t care less. Bad appearance, wearing yoga pants and a hoodie, uncombed hair. Absolute robbery $68. NEVER EVER GO THERE. It’s too bad because it’s such a beautiful space, has the potential to be a gem.

    Booked a reservation here over a week ago for 4:30pm and they call me 2 hours before my reservation to say they are closing at 5. Literally had over a week to call but they wait till last minute and they said they updated their closing time online but it still says they close at 6pm. This is not the first time this has happened here. Very poor customer service.

    A misleading waste of space. The servers are clueless, the food is missing and crossed off with black sharpee, the cutlery could use some polishing. We were looking forward to high tea and quickly changed our minds as soon as we sat down.

    Open table said reservations can be booked until 5. Showed up telling me they are closed. None of the staff knows what to do. Then the manager came out and told me the same thing with an attitude of “too bad i cant help you”. Said she offer me a 10% off next time, so i ask how would you even do that? And she gave no answer and brush it off. Continuously blaming its my fault, open table is not updated i should of done my own research. Then admits is her fault for “not contacting and confirming bookings”. Then start asking if i can speak mandarin. AND CONTINUE TO TELL ME THEY R CLOSE, too bad. Bruh. (I can see my name on the booking list, kept telling me i am not on it) awesome bro

    Upon arrival, the family was seated by their sole waitress. Decor was rather nice appearing to the the floral arrangements from a small wedding party. It was quiet as it was just after opening when we arrived. We ordered their HyTea Lounge Set with a Lobster Bisque. Service was rather slow despite being the first table seated. Their Seasonal Fruit Bowl arrived first nicely presented on a black slate. Their scone was warm and fluffy, fruit presented in the shell of half a grapefruit. The lobster bisque arrived shortly after and the first sip reminded me of the gulp of water after falling into the ocean during a recent surf; it was extremely salty and fishy. The lobster tail was tough like rubber, it’s meat clung tightly to it shell. The thyme sprig appeared to had been in the composter for a few days. For $18 we expected it to be on par with the lobster bisque at Coast; creamy and fresh reminding you of your grandparents’ best Sunday soup. FYI, Coasts’ lobster bisque is pretty much the same price and will make you want to go back for more! The pastry tower came last. The sandwiches were dry, duck salad was not fresh (greens were browning and the duck breast appeared to had been out for a while with its juices all drained), bean curd was ok (flavoured by what could easily be replicated by a bottle of sweet and sour sauce), takoyaki was a little cool but tasted fine, and their foie gras on toast was fine as well. Their deserts were ok however their tiramisu tasted more of cream than espresso. Cute design of a cartoon mouse though. We asked for the cheque as well as for the deserts to be packed. The cheque came swiftly however the deserts were forgotten for a good 5 to 10 minutes. The waitress seemed to have a communication breakdown with the kitchen staff with the packing instructions. Anyways, we received new desert (just imagine what could have happened there). We rarely review our experiences however this one definitely needed one for future diners.

    Awful. Half the orders for mains never arrived. Drinks took 45 minutes to arrive. Out of 5 meals, they forgot 3. Finally the last 2 were cancelled after 2 hours of waiting. Asked for the bill and they still tried to charge for all of them. Only 3 tables were there.

    Ordered the high tea, chicken wings and extra tea. It took 45 minutes for the food to arrive, yet there was only one table for 4 in the restaurant apart from us...They also received their food at the 45 minute mark. When you have 1.5 hrs to sit, and majority was taken up waiting. We had very little time to sit and enjoy before they needed us out for their next reservation. When it did arrive we received 2 cold chicken wings (deep to the bone cold), covered in dried up egg yolk. The overall atmosphere was great with beautiful decorations, lighting, table settings, but the food was not worth the price. I was quite disappointed to find a tiny thumb size scone. For the amount of jam and spread given, I'd basically be eating the spreads with crumbs of scone. The flavors were great, portion size tiny, food temperature poor, and wait time way too long.

    Lovely food and tea, however website states price at $38 when it is $48 plus $1 extra if one has a hot fruit tea. Scone size is tiny...not even two bits. Having the food in the square boxes elevates the experience. A treat once in a while due to the high price.

    Great service and super cute place for high tea! We went right when they opened so it was quiet and really nice. Though if you are looking for vegetarian high tea, you need to give them a days notice...which they didn’t tell me when I called. Just told me yes there was a vegetarian high tea. my girl friend ended up getting the high tea set (and I think like all high tea sets) it was on the pricier side!
