    Shockingly insipid sandwiches and over creamy pastries. You pay for the view not the food. Surprised Shangri-La would go this way.. very disappointed

    Very disappointed. The venue is amazing but the staff let them down. Def not worth the money. We waited 20 mins before we were even offered a drink. If it hadn't had been a special occasion, I would have left.

    This was an amazing experience from start to finish. It was a friendship celebration and we all love the afternoon tea experience, and having it in the Shard with an incredible view of the skyline was just perfect. Our server was brilliant, checking in on us to ensure we had everything we needed, and brought additional tea and sandwiches when we asked for it. The presentation of the afternoon tea could not have been better. We all loved the experience and will definitely be back. I highly recommend it as a venue. Thank you.

    was amazing, food was so good and service was excellent.

  • (((** 2 April 2018 by Jill from Oxford

    It was excellent service and very efficient. However, the price advertised was before tax added which made an expensive afternoon tea very expensive and probably not worth it.

    We visited for afternoon as a Xmas treat however the service was terrible! The waiter forgot our tea! Never came to see if everything was okay or if we needed anymore drinks and when we did ask for more drinks and our tea the staff acted like we were asking too much of them! Also when asking for more drinks the waitress charged us but never actually brought the drink over! We were left very very disappointed with our visit!

    View was perfect, food - delicious, everything was fine, except that we had 1.5 hours more to spend there, until 4:00, according to our reservation, but the man asked us to hurry, because there were some another reservations after us.
    However, we still loved the experience
