A wonderful afternoon's experience for the whole party. Fantastic and unusual cakes. Lovely touch that we could take home the cakes we had not managed to eat Exceptional value for money. Have already recommended this experience to many friends and will return myself

Offering an innovative take on southern European cuisine, Kona restaurant marries contemporary style with traditional cooking in an elegant but homely setting. Housed in the luxury Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Hotel, a fittingly opulent afternoon tea is also served.

Packed with fresh ingredients, the Kona menu showcases simple food that is full of flavour. Executive chef David Tilly presents his interpretation of the vibrant colours and flavours of European cuisine in dishes like seabass with chorizo and calamari, free-range chicken with parmesan crust, and Gloucestershire Old Spot pork belly with smoked paprika and rosemary crumb.

Afternoon tea at Kona London is an indulgent experience, blending savoury and sweet delights with champagne and the finest teas. Extravagant finger sandwiches include golden quail’s egg and free-range mayonnaise and smoked salmon with caviar and mascarpone.

Kona is found in the 5-star Taj 51 Buckingham Gate, a prestigious hotel a stone's throw from Buckingham Palace.

    Alice in Wonderland afternoon tea - Everything was absolutely perfect. We came here for my friend's birthday. The tea, the cakes and the finger sandwiches were absolutely delicious. The table was also very beautiful. I definitely recommend this place!

    Went for my 2 year anniversary, had the Alice in Wonderland experience. Had sandwiches, sweets and cakes and scones. Chose 2 teas out of a selection of 22. The waiters are very knowledgeable. Was a wonderful service from the get go, we were running a bit late and called the restaurant and they were very accommodating. Had our jackets taken, chairs pulled out, very nice experience. The restaurant is a little hard to find, its actually inside another building. Very nicely decorated and even the bathrooms are luxurious.

    A friend and I had booked reservations for afternoon tea which exceeded all expectations.
    The service was excellent. We had an attentive waiter, who explained they had been able to cater for our dietary requirements and went on to give us information about each item on the menu.
    I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
    Excellent food and service so would love to revisit.

    After a museum visit and a (moderate) shopping spree my friend and I were ready for our Jungle Book afternoon tea, which I had booked the day before. An amazing experience in a beautiful restaurant! The food was presented in such an attractive way and it was all as tasty as it looked. I thought the scones were absolutely delicious, but so was everything else. The tea was also excellent and we were asked at the right time if we wanted a refill. Staff were equally wonderful, very friendly and service was impeccable. Warmly recommended.
