The service here was quite bad. No smile from the waitress and they seemed impatient though i know they were busy. This place was quite crowded on weekends, didn't feel relax at all (Perhaps we were given the seats near their entrance). The round table was super small and cramped with just a 3 Tier Stand + 1 Pot of Tea and 1 Coffee. The high tea food items were average. But Citibank 1 for 1 only costs $38.84 for 2 pax so it's still worth it to try once..
Recently a certain credit card is having a 1-for-1 promotion for its high tea set. I decide to take my mummy to enjoy the promotion since Mothers' Day is just around this month. The place is quite cozy with comfortable sofas and armchairs. Best of all there is not much people. Besides us, there is only 3 more tables are occupied.
The set ($33++) comes with
Assorted Open Faced Sandwich
Smoked Salmon with Cream
Small portion of Green Salad
Chocolate Tart, Rasberry Tart
Cheese Cake, Macaroon
A choice of drink from a selected list on the menu. ($54++ with 2 glasses of Prosecco)
For $18++ more, it includes a Chocolate Fondue, served with seasonal fruits and mashmallows.
There is also a Japanese Afternoon Tea Set which costs $39++.
From the selected drink list, I have the Chamomile Tea which is light and refreshing. It is in tea bag form and hot water is refillable. The tea is served with a small jar of honey, if one needs it to sweeten the tea. Mother has the Hot Chocolate which is thick and chocolaty.
The food is served in a 3-tier high tea set with jam and cream by the side. At the bottom tray, lies Assorted Open Faced Sandwich, Smoked Salmon with Cream, and Small portion of Green Salad in the centre. The sandwich is simple and tasty, especially the one topped with cheese and dried fruit, which has a fruity taste and balance the cheese well. The salad is simple and refreshing. In the middle tray, we have Chocolate Tart, Rasberry Tart, Cheese Cake, Macaroon, and Chocolate Savouri. Cute looking and petite looking. Tasty and not too sweet. At the top tray, it is the Scones, served with juicy strawberries. Although the scones looks hard, but is actually quite soft. Topped with cream and jam, it is very tasty.
Overall it is a light and filling meal. Very relaxing place to pass the time.

For the Japanese afternoon tea set:
Since Sheraton Towers Hotel’s Lobby Bar was having a 1 for 1 promotion for afternoon tea, I dropped by with K to give it a try.The Lobby Bar serves English Afternoon tea for $33++ per pax and Japanese Afternoon Tea for $39++ per pax. We paid about only about $19 each; very happy with the bargain!
The ambience was cosy and quiet, with ample space between each table for privacy, making it a perfect place to engage in long catch up sessions with girlfriends. Quality and variety of the food was satisfactory, for the amount we paid. The Manager provided good service; but the others were oblivious to customers waving for their attention.
As the portion of the afternoon tea set is quite filling, I suggest having a very light lunch before visiting. K was struggling to finish up her share of food.
Wanting to try after finding out UOB has a 1-4-1 promotion going on. The place was very quiet on a Sunday 3pm despite the staff telling they were overbooked when I called prior. Guess the crowd's at Dining Room for the buffet. Oh well, all the better for a relax family high tea outing.
English Afternoon Tea ($33 per pax) - For an afternoon with a difference, opt for our quintessential English Afternoon Tea. Served in the finest English tradition, it includes delicate pastries, fresh scones with house-made clotted cream and slow-poached berry jam, assorted sandwiches, and freshly brewed leaf tea. Indeed, you may choose from the renowned Mackwoods collection of fine Ceylon teas, from the unblended single estate black teas in different grades, to the exquisite range of flavoured and connoisseur teas such as The Queen's 160 Golden Jubilee Blend and Anniversary Blend. Not surprisingly, English Afternoon Tea is fast becoming an institution at Sheraton Towers.
The bites came in a typical 3 tier and 2pax to 1 tier for the 1-4-1 promo. The scones were warm and fluffy and came with big strawberries.There were also ham sandwich rolls, cheese sandwiches, and ham crossiants, out of which the cheese sandwiches were most memorable. For sweets, there were macaroons, cheesecake, chocolate tarts - all not bad!
(on the hotel website, the description actually says "English Afternoon Tea and Chocolate Fondue" and had a description of the fondue after the above, followed by the price of $33 per pax. I find this very decieving as I took it to mean that the $33 includes both the high tea plus the fondue but turns out the fondue is separately chargeable if you want it. The layout is misleading I feel)
Japanese High Tea ($39++ per pax) - Whet your appetite with our new Japanese afternoon tea that boasts an array of Japanese snacks such as Mochi, Cold Soba Noodles with Quail Egg and Fish Roe, Green Tea Daifuku as well as a delectable platter of assorted Sushi and Salmon Sashimi. Sunggle in a cosy couch and pamper yourself to a truly decadent afternoon today!
This was really interesting, served in a standing open shelf. The soba noodles, sushi and (salmon) sashimi were served separately which made it feel like there were more food than it actually were. The soba noodles were disappointing bland but sushi and sashimi were not too bad. The mochi had good reviews, and there was a toufu-like thingy coated with soya bean flour which I couldnt understand. Some jelly-pudding, and also a black saseme kueh thingy which was quite unique.
With all the sets, you get 1 serving of either coffee or your choice of tea but they both come in pots so its actually more than sufficient for 1pax.
Service left much to be desired as the place was obviously understaffed - maybe they felt no need to pay too much attention to the lobby bar since it was not a full-house. Us sitting in a corner sofa added to our woes of trying to get any attention. But still, it was a good place for high tea as the likes of Goodwood and Shang were permanently crowded and makes catching up difficult.
With the 1-4-1 promotion, its really a deal not to be missed in my opinion.
