Looked for new ideas to celebrate a birthday and I thought Salt would be something novel. Being on Level 55 of Ion, taking the elevator at a secluded area was kinda cool. Read MoreHide
When the elevator opens, the Salt counter staff greets you, and shows you to your reserved window seat ( you may have to pay an extra $20 for that.. =_=).
We ordered 2 Afternoon Tea sets at $30++ each with tea and and extra dessert plate ($20+) with wordings & candle for my birthday partner. Our order took at least 15minutes to come and we were starving. Out of all the items on the 3-tiered serving, we liked the Ham & Turkey Croque Madam most. The rest were highly unmemorable.
Since we liked the Ham & Turkey Croque Madam, we tried to ask for another serving as well as another pot of tea. Being tam chiak & yao gui, we wanted the most value out of our trip. This is also because we had gone to The Landing Point before this and were highly impressed by them. The staff came back to say that each additional food item will cost $5 each at ala carte price! Obviously very giam, we chose not to go ahead, and were disappointed. It's High Tea! At least, give us more tea!
We will not be going back. Perhaps Salt is better known for its fine dining options instead of high tea. It has a good ambience, although somewhere around 4pm in September, the sun shines slanted in through the windows onto your face. They had blinds, but it wasn't rolled down until much later when we were about to leave. They were probably busy setting the tables for the fine dining dinner crowd.
After the food, we walked up to the Sky Lounge where you can get some amazing views of the Orchard area and where you can use a viewer to spy on the extremely rich who stay around Ion.
I spent $50 per person.
