    Delicious afternoon tea as always. As I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth, it’s a joy to have a wonderful savoury alternative.

    Tea is nice, but pastry and scone is not tasty. The plain scone is even under baked. As we are seating next to a busy pathway, the floor bounces whenever people passes by.

    Went for afternoon tea. The setting is lovely and the location is very central. It was quite busy and lacked a bit of ambience...maybe the lighting, maybe the music...it was also quite noisy and although we arrived early for the booking we ended up being seated 10 minutes after the booking time. £60 per head is frankly too expensive for what it was. It took a while to get any service when we had sat down and staff were running all over the place, was a little chaotic. The chap who ended up serving us was lovely and very attentive. Even got some free champagne which was a nice touch. The sandwiches and cakes were bottomless so if you go for the afternoon tea, go when you’re hungry! We went as a booking for 3 and for £180, 3 pots of tea, some finger sandwiches and a couple of scones, not worth the money I’m afraid. You’re paying for the brand name.

    Jose treated us as royals! The food was superbe The context a little bit too crowded and light... table next to us has been left with left overs and empty dishes for the whole two hours....

    We had a lovely meal at this restaurant. Good Indian Fusion food. The Somalier was very competent and gave us a very good introduction to every wine, and it was nicely matched with the food.

    We had afternoon tea which was lovely the food was beautifully presented and plentiful with an amazing choice of teas it felt very special and Christmassy with the piano twinkling in the back ground - overall a lovely experience that felt like a treat The service was very polite and respectful whilst being friendly ; however service was extremely slow and didn’t feel attentive. There were many staff on due but the system employed seemed highly inefficient with slow clearing and relating of tables, staff rushing around but ineffectually made me want to take control and sort it out!!
