    Excellent tea at The Chrystal Moon lounge. Comfy seats, welcoming service and tasty food. The amuse bouche was delicious, a confection of mint and pineapple, the star of the show for me. Interesting and different sandwiches, of which we were offered more, warm scones and tasty pastries. Had to ask for more jam and cream, but not a problem. Overall, very good.

    Fantastic! The staff was very accommodating when I requested to move our tea because we were stuck at Kensington Palace. They were incredibly charming and the room is absolutely beautiful! Food was fantastic, we decided on the rose champagne high tea and my mother and I were not disappointed. Can't wait to come back and visit this gorgeous place!

    I booked afternoon tea here for my grandmother's birthday and it surpassed all expectations. The afternoon tea venue is stunning and could not be faulted, it makes any occasion special. The service throughout tea, again, was exceptional- professional and attentive but with extra touches like a cake and candle for my grandmother's birthday. Nothing was too much. The food was delicious - especially the tuna sandwich and the rhubarb tart.
    Overall the afternoon was fantastic, a real treat, and we will definitely be back as soon as possible. Definitely worth the price.

    Overall our afternoon tea was didn't feel like anything particularly special for the price we paid, & for that reason I wont be returning. From the pictures, menu & price I just thought it would be better than it was. The venue was nice, but having tea in the lobby just a few feet from the entrance didn't make our experience feel exclusive. The food was ok (& you were offered more which was great) but of the 5 sandwiches 2 were not to my taste & several were a little dry where they had obviously been left out in the air a little too long. The desserts were however very good & we couldn't fault the service. Having had afternoon tea at the Ritz & Dorchester (which granted were more expensive) I would definitely recommend paying the extra if you are looking for a truly wonderful/memorable experience.

    Beautiful location but very inattentive staff, not a nice experience or lovely afternoon.

    lovely food and a great variety
    Table was a little small to serve four of us

    It is a beautiful venue, with stunning flower arrangements. The overall High Tea experience wasn't great, poor service and extremely expensive for what is served. The restaurant responded well to our "unhappiness" and amended our bill accordingly. Hats off to the restaurant for responding quickly and although, it wasn't our best High Tea, did leave the restaurant feeling that our concerns had been noted and addressed.

    Wonderful afternoon tea. Extra sandwiches, cakes and scones on request.

    I took my mother to the Corinthia/ Lobby Lounge for a Christmas treat! Wow What a treat!
    Beautiful festive decor, music and friendly staff who make the experience magical. The hostesses take the time to explain all the treats and different tea's. If you didn't like something on the sandwich list you could pick an alternative. The servings were just enough and we were offered extra and could try more than one tea blend. The treats were pieces of art work and tasted wonderful.
    We didn't feel rushed and could relax and enjoy the surroundings. This is a special place and we will be back again!
