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.

    We had 'Afternoon Tea in Wonderland.' The table was laid beautifully & decorated to the theme. The sandwiches were my least favourite part. The desserts & scones were delicious, with some specifically decorated to the theme. The staff were very accommodating & the service was excellent. A surprise little chocolate cake was a lovely touch for my birthday. The venue is gorgeous too.

    We went for the Sherlock Holmes afternoon tea as a treat for my friends birthday and couldn't be happier.

    From the amazing theme decoration of the table to the thoughtful, deliciously presented and deliciously tasting sandwiches and cakes. One of our party didn't eat meat and this was taken care of without any fuss.

    As it was also a Birthday there was a surprise slice of cake and a birthday song! Was lovely.

    Amazing afternoon tea. The tea selection was huge and everything felt really fresh. The scones were delicious but my favourite was the battenberg cake which I haven't had for ages. I'll be back.

    Excellent food - all 3 courses lobster bisque, lamb 3 ways and Wonda chocolate were both innovative and perfectly cooked. Nice setting, relaxed atmosphere and great value with or without taste card discount

    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

    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!
