    Top service, top food at the top.

    When I made the booking I made a dietary request for one member of the party to have wraps instead of sandwiches. This was not followed up on and instead of afternoon tea they had a bowl of afternoon salad. Extra tea/coffee had to be asked for and we had to ask for the bill and then wait at least 15 minutes to pay after asking 2 waitresses. Not the best afternoon tea expierence I've had although the view was wonderful.

    We had afternoon tea and everything was just fantastic , food , service and of course the view.
    Would recommend and the price was less than you'd think.

    Disappointed with the whole experience. Most expensive afternoon tea we have ever had and by far the worse. Not asked once if everything was ok let alone if you wanted any more tea or sandwiches. Scones and cakes were minute poor service and poor value for what you have to pay and then expected to pay a service charge at the end.

    Had afternoon tea at gong. Lovely restaurant really relaxing atmosphere and the best views in London.
    The food was really tasty especially the sandwiches. The staff were helpful and polite and we just loved the experience. Would definitely do it again.

    Good views, nice food. The waiting staff were a little over busy. The day before they left me a message asking if I still wanted my booking, even tho I had confirmed on the Monday already. I phoned 5 times to confirm but there was no answer so I was a bit worried they might cancel my booking. Eventually they replied to my email.

    High tea was super- the staff were lovely & very attentive- I wish we could have had more sandwiches as I have a savoury tooth & do not like the cakes
