    High tea is overrated for a horrifying price the food is lacklustre and sandwiches were ghastly.

    I booked High Tea for 5 Teens to celebrate a birthday so I never experienced it but they were all super excited about their experience. So thank you for making it so special for them!

    I must add though that I have heard from 2 adult adult friends that they found some of the food to be stale and not up to the quality expected from Oyster Box, especially at the price which I found to be really expensive!! Almost the same price as the curry buffet! Bit too steep to repeat in a hurry.

    My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Oyster Box High Tea. The spread of food was fantastic and everything we tried was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the savoury offerings as well as the scones - very light and delicious! I also enjoyed how much tea we were served as I'm used to getting a tiny teapot of tea, so being able to have at least four cups from one pot was a real treat! I also want to compliment the pianist - very pleasant to listen to and a great range of songs! Overall an awesome dining experience!

    High tea in the Palm court was a wonderful experience. The service was outstanding. The display and variety of food was exceptional. The chocolate cake was the BEST !!! The decor is so elegant with amazing attention to detail. We loved your cat Skabenga! A memorable afternoon. Do go!

    What a wonderful afternoon of Birthday and Mother's Day celebrations. An excellent High Tea, attention to detail, a wonderful host (Julius) and special Gluten free spread for me.
    Julius was wonderful and attended to our every need with a huge smile and accommodating manner. We will definitely be back.

    The ambiance was lovely. The sweet dishes were tasty but the savouries were very average and unappetizing. There should also be more finger bite savouries.

    A very special "experience".

    Amazing afternoon at high tea. The setting and the food were perfect, so many options. Whilst I enjoyed the savory food, my daughters and wife loved the cakes and sweet dishes. Our waiter was very good, he definetly new his stuff and he suprised us all with the belated birthday cake for my wife. Sadly I cannot recall his name.
