We were able to relax and talk, sip our tea and nosh on the food without feeling rush.

They are nice people and I'm sure they are trying very hard. But they really don't have a clue as to what afternoon tea is.

I was expecting a more sedate/quiet venue for high tea. This was more like a coffee shop. Tea should be a pampering experience and we were not pampered. The tables were too small to hold the tea, the food, and the cups. For the price, while the food was good, it wasn't great like high tea pastries, etc should be. I've paid less for more at better venues.

Loved it! The food was great. Loved the selection of desserts.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I was with two 8 year old girls who were skeptical about the experience but because of the staff they had a grand time. They want to go back again.

The staff was nice and the place was cute. There's street parking in front (2 hour meters) and free parking in the back. It was a bit expensive though for what you got. We expected more for $25 per person but it was cheaper of course because of the TravelZoo coupon. We wished there were more sandwiches and savories. The dumplings were nice and the lemon cake was good. But the portions were small. Having asian food at tea was a bit odd though with the dumplings and the edamame. You can also get a foot massage and reflexology treatments in back, along with a cup of tea. Large tea selection which you can buy to take home.
