    We went there in the afternoon. No choice but afternoon tea set menu only. No a la carte menu at all??? And the rip off price is £29.99 for a standard afternoon set. No matter why the restaurant is so empty. I m diabetic so I can't enjoy as much sweet cakes and scones as others. There is no point to order that and waste more than half of the food. The menu is so rigid, I decided I should left and I won't come back again in the future.

    We visited for afternoon tea with a glass of fizz, it was lovely, we have eaten afternoon tea at various London hotels and can say that the Amba Hotel rated along with all the others as excellent.

    Just a very nice place to meet up with friends and have a drink in the bar followed by lunch on the Terrace. The staff are excellent and the food and choices good all round.

    Excellent food, good central setting, pleasant service

  • ((((( 17 September 2018 by Valerie from Colchester

    I was entertaining friends from Australia andneeded somewhere central and accessible in London. . Terrace Restaurant filled the bill admirably. We were given a table with a good view ,so worth asking, and were warmly welcomed. Service was a little slow but that suited us as we had a lot of catching up to do . Food was good, with a reasonably wide choice and prices comparable to other restaurants in the area.
    After our meal , which wasn’t rushed as the restaurant doesn’t close in the afternoons, we went downstairs to the hotel sofas and had pots of tea to continue our meeting. Again, the service was warm and efficient I am pleased I did the research to find the right venue for my needs Well recommended.

    The afternoon tea experience was really nice specially the food, the size of the scones and the quality was amazing. The service need some improvement, we felt like we left aside as soon the food been served and no explanation of the afternoon tea stand just left us with the menu to figure out with ourselves.

    Have dined at the Terrace Restaurant over a period of years. Chosen for its quiet 'cultured ambience' and service in which to enjoy a fine lunch or dinner. Accompanying friend, or friends, have always appreciated enjoying a meal there.
