    We had afternoon tea and champagne and it was wonderful and the views stunning. I would highly recommend everyone should try afternoon tea.

    Great view, staff friendly but sandwiches very dry on the bread (we had two servings of sandwiches and both were dry). Didn’t bother informing staff as had read several reviews online before we went where other customers had reportedly mentioned the dry sandwiches to staff but this was ignored. For the cost you pay needs to improve on the sandwich front. The Ritz is much better for comparable price but Gong Bar has the spectacular views.

    I was happy with my visit and staff were very friendly. This visit was to surprise my partner as we were celebrating our 1st Anniversary and the view was perfect and it was exactly what I requested for however I was very disappointed with the surprise I wanted to give my partner. I called twice and had to ask them for the surprise in front of my partner which no longer was a surprise. I asked for a plate which said Happy Anniversary with chocolate sauce with macaroons and cakes however this was not given instead of given plate full of truffles and fudges. I’m happy but Dissapointed that I couldn’t surprise my partner.

    Afternoon Tea was wonderful! The sandwiches were delicious as were the scones and cakes. They even brought out extra sandwiches for us! My friend had a Vegan option ( we prebooked this and then reconfirmed 48hrs before) which she thoroughly enjoyed! A table by the window topped off a perfect day! (I also put in a request for a window table) The restaurant is warm and intimate with the view spectacular even with the fog and rain!
    Our whole experience including a glass of champagne was superb! To date this is my favourite Afternoon Tea experience!
    I read a few reviews before booking and there are some bad ones. I think that if you have special requirements it’s best to put it in writing and then reconfirm. I’m pretty sure they will do their utmost to accommodate you.
    For us, our experience at the Gong - Shangri-La was fabulous!

    It was a bit spendy, but that's a given considering the location. The food was good, the staff were great, & the view was outstanding. It's certainly a good venue for a treat!

    It was an experience and the view is lovely as we have a friend from US that we tour in Shard.We ordered some food for lunch and the portion is too small to be honest all of us we are still hungry knowing we spend a lot.We have to go somewhere to eat again.I don’t think the price is right for the amount we getting.Thanks
