Went there for Weekend English High Tea Buffet with my colleagues, as we got a subsidised price with company, it's only $28 per pax.
As it was a big group of us, it took them quite some time serve us the tea and food initially.
For someone who love a big variety of food, the spreads there seems a bit little for me, but there's a few items that I really like such as the Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Parma Ham Bagel and the Smoked Duck Open Face Sandwich, so I kept ordering that few items. The Chocolate Tart and the Creme Brulee was a bit too sweet for me, the Lemon Tart is quite refreshing, especially after eating the sweet desserts.
One of my colleagues doesn't like margarine on her sandwiches, so her favourite is the Otah Open Face Sandwich. As I saw that she had quite limited choice of food, half way through the buffet I asked one of the staffs, Jackson, to ask the kitchen to help to prepare a set of sandwiches without any margarine. He replied that as they got the sandwiches from a kitchen that was much further away, it might take around half an hour or more to do so as it was raining heavily at that moment. I was quite surprised as I thought the kitchen should be in the hotel.
After around 15 mins, Jackson served my colleague a plate of sandwiches without margarine, but the bread was different from the normal spread and it only consist of Smoked Salmon, Cucumber and Tomato, and we do not have tomato sandwich in the normal spread, so I guess maybe they got the normal spread from a caterer and Jackson specially asked their in-house kitchen to help to make a special set for my colleagues from their existing ingredients in the kitchen. Really appreciate his effort and wonderful customer service!
The range of Tea and Coffee are quite good too, among all that we had tried I prefer the Fruit Tea and Mocha coffee, really nice and fragrant.
To be honest if I was to pay the full price $43++ for the English High Tea I would think that it's not really worth it as I will prefer to spend that amt of money on International Buffet as I'm more of a meat and Seafood person. But for the Service and Ambience I don't mind going there again to try their a la carte menu.
