Thank you very much to Hungry Go Where and Conrad Centennial for the invitation to the tasting event.

Dining in Conrad Centennial Singapore always have an aura of posh and glamour. The Conrad brand itself should represent luxury that goes hand in hand with elegance. High Tea at Lobby Lounge in Conrad Centennial is no exception to this. It was recently relaunched during the Mother's Day period.
The selection of the food here heavy on the desserts side. When you enter the Lobby Lounge, the first thing you will notice are their sweets / desserts selection, followed by hot meal left of the Lobby Lounge, Cheese selections in the centre and appetizer and roast dish at the inner sanctum of the lounge. So what are the die die must try this here.
Everything with Chocolate.
These selections that all chocolate lovers should be going after to. Whether it is Praline; Cakes; Dessert shots; Fondue of strawberry & marshmallow; or Chocolate blocks, all of them are super yummy as they use top grade chocolates. If you think the chocolate blocks are hard to portion, you can use the hammer to whack it in the bite size that you like.   Mini Wagyu Cheese Burger BLT. This bite size burger is one of the most popular item here. The meat is juicy, succulent and flavourful, while the size allow you to try out more food option. I pop a few of this, during the high tea session, but I won't disclose how many though. Yum Yum!   Fresh Oyster and Crayfish Salad. The oysters are fresh as they come from all around the world. The Lounge will only serve what's fresh and in season, thus do ask the chefs what are the type of oysters they are serving that day. The crayfish salad are fresh mixed well with capsicums and served on the crayfish exoskeleton.   Lobster Quiche, Quail Egg Benedict, Roast Beef and the rest of the desserts are a must try and their complete review is here.   While there are some hits in the food, there are some misses as well, such as: Scones (Traditional, Salmon, Spinach & Goat Cheese). We find the texture a very dense and solid, a slight disappointment for scones lovers like us. The cream and jam is very good though. Dishes that can be improve are tempura mussels and gratin scallops which at times become chewy and dry as it was left under the heating light too long. The sushi rice also can do with a bit more cooking time and more rice vinegar.   Service is very inconsistent. For the chefs behind the food and dessert counters, they are very friendly and helpful. However, the service staff presence are minimum. At times it can be difficult to find them or even get their attention to clear the plates. Hopefully they can improve on this.   Overall, High Tea at Lobby Lounge is a memorable experience. The atmosphere is very classy, the food is good, the desserts are exquisite. Cheers!!

Visit only if you wanna eat the desserts

Caveat: This was an invited tasting.

Despite the excellent service, the afternoon tea was disappointingly middling. The desserts made the bulk of the good stuff. As with the cheese. But the savouries were mostly mediocre, teetering on bad. The truly superb stuff were the cocktails (we had a really potent but sweetly satisfying sangria) and teas, which I think would be quite difficult to muck up. Overall, I didn't think the $58 pricetag per adult pax was worthwhile.

excellent hi-tea

I had the opportunity to try the hi-tea here recently. Whilst it does not have the largest spread that I have seen, the lobby lounge focuses a lot on quality, as evidence in my recent visit.

Start with the freshly shucked Canadian oysters and the sushsi. Another dish to try is the tasty chopped crayfish with mayo - really addictive.

 For some hot dishes, go for the quail egg benedict, seared scallops, quiche and wagyu beef sliders. What I liked about the dishes is that they are served in bite sized portions which allowed me to try different varieties. 

Finally, do not leave without trying the chocolates. Lots of options from chocolate cake to thick dark verona chocolate.

Seatings are from 2pm to 4pm and 4pm to 6pm on Saturdays and do book online in advance as it can be pretty packed due to limited seating.

Worst ever! avoid at all cost!

If you wondered if there is a restaurant out there who went out its way to make you feel unwelcomed just because they thought you wanted to dine there no matter what you found it. If not for the aquarium view, the food, service and policies of this restaurant really will put any diner off. The policies were terrible, right from the booking when they made a point tell us constantly the restaurant was fully booked and we are not to spend more than 1.5 hrs at the restaurant. When we arrived however, the restaurant is empty and continued to be 1/3 full until we left. So I don't understand why they had to rush us to leave. The food was equally terrible, food was severely overpriced, we ordered 2 fishes both were over cooked. They portions were very very small dispute $30+ each, and they refused to give us bread rolls! We could even eat our fill with terrible quality food Executed terribly. Finally, the service was terrible, our cups of tea was not constantly refilled, We had to do it ourselves. They didn't know how to set the table With our forks and knives. The Service was unpolished and Impersonal. I really Wouldn't advice Anyone to go to this stupid excuse Of a restaurant. Shame on you to call this fine dining. Avoid at all cost!

great ambience and food for hi tea

I was part of the HGW invited food reviwers team to check out Lobby Lounge @ Conrad. Conrad hotel is quite concealed in the suntec area, nestled right in the middle between millenia walk, SICC and the Suntec office complex.   Lobby Lounge has a nice ambience, one side of the restaurant is a full glass wall that allows sunlight in while the rest of the decor is more maroon and brown, forming a good balance.   One distinctive of this hi tea is that the food portions are all small size and you can't find any food warmer or a big pot of food anywhere.   The hi-tea consist of the following sections: Fresh oyster section, 2 meat carving station, sushi station, sandwich section, cheese selection, warm food section and an impressive desert section (check out the photos)   I liked the sushi station that serves a variety of quality ebi, unagi, tomago. suchi + assorted, maki rolls. The fried peking duck and another fried item from the warm food section has too hard a batter, it is probably not easy to strike a balance between a soggy batter and one that is overly hard. I tried a scone and found it more chewy than crumbly, probanly due to too much kneading.   A wide variety Ronnefeldt tea is served in a unique tea pot that allow you to seperate the tea bag from the tea (to control the strength of the tea) by tilting the pot 90 degrees. Refreshing Sangia is also served. You can request for different tea when you empty out the tea pot (holds about 2-3 cups)    The weekend Hi-Tea has 2 seatings: 2-4pm & 4-6pm. The latter slot is very popular and we were reminded to leave close to 4pm to accomodate the 4pm guests lining up outside the cafe.
