One of my friends made a reservation and we had a tea-time on one rainy Saturday noon. We selected the Prince William and Lady Katherine tea and was indeed delicious. The tea cups remind me of Florence, Italy...

We turned up and to be fair it was pretty full. It took them about 15 minutes to seat is despite our table being ready. They then took a long time to serve is our first dish and they seemed pretty distracted with music and...More

First let me tell you there is no reason to walk into an establishment and question the cleanliness of it but I seriously doubt that this place has had a good cleaning since it opened. There are piles of papers behind the cashiers desk it...More
