We came here for afternoon
We came here for afternoon tea. We both enjoyed it very much. Our server helped with our tea selection and we were quite happy with the choices we made with her guidance. Both teas went very well with the accompanying food. They are now among one my favorite places for afternoon tea. Bonus was the live piano player that was playing while we were there. Double bonus was the surprise non-alcoholic cocktail that our server made for us as a birthday treat for me. Thoroughly a wonderful experience that will be repeated, hopefully not too far off in the future.

The ambience of the Lounge and the amazing high-tea served here will keep me coming back again and again. Love those amazing scones.

Made me feel extremely welcome
Our party of 3 had afternoon tea service which was extremely tasty. The scones are the best that I have ever had in my entire life. Our server was friendly and attentive (she gave me honey water because she observed that I had a cold). I was actually crying but the gesture was nice and appreciated, and really made me love Xi Shi. The server was outstanding, although I regret that I did not get her name. One complaint was the "live entertainment" around 4-5 o'clock, which really took away from the afternoon tea experience as the music was LOUD and prior preparation distracting. Electronic/vocal house music DOES NOT fit well with afternoon tea, I felt like this was their way of rushing us to finish up our tea service.

High tea at its best
For a true afternoon tea experience, go to the Shangri-La. Excellent experience and service. Ambience fantastic and attention to detail was great.

Amazing Afternoon Tea
First time having the afternoon tea. What a beautiful setting, particularly the china! I had the lychee+almond+rose tea, my mom had jasmine, and my girlfriend and her mom had the rose+vanilla. We shared 2 3-tiered towers of sandwiches, pastries, and desserts. Every morsel was tasty and every sip was so aromatic. Must come back!! Really great for a girls luncheon or even a bridal shower!

Great afternoon tea location
I'd been there so many times. It's still my first choose for afternoon tea place. Food displayed very stylish. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgable with menu. I am falling love with the 1879 (?) the signature tea. The afternoon experience is wonderful. Very enjoy.

Nice but I could tell that
Nice but I could tell that sandwiches were sitting out too long. The bread on 1 side of each sandwich was drier than the other. It wasn't soft and didn't taste fresh.

Well done high tea
Unexpected but well done high tea at XiShi at the ShangriLa in its comfy and quiet room. Live piano man playing familiar covers. Great tea!

Xi Shi Lounge is an excellent venue for a casual luncheon meeting over a traditional afternoon tea. Casual, elegant, fresh, traditional, it's all here -- with the best scones in the city and great service, too.

I had high tea in the restaurant
I had high tea in the restaurant and I must say it was amazing. The food was good, the service was excellent and to top it off I went on the weekend when there was a piano player there. He was exceptional. He was friendly and taking requests. I felt he went above and beyond to make the who experience great. The servers were also very attentive and made the group I was with feel very well taken care of and frankly like royalty. It was great. The only negative thought was that one of the main staff members was giving service we all thought was a bit rude. I have been to high tea a few times there and his attitude is always the same. But that wasn't a big issue because everything else well made up for it.

excellent light dishes!
All was excellent; astoundingly good service. But beware of hired musicians who over-amplify their music in this rather small venue.

$38 for what we get in afternoon tea set, it's a bit pricey.
They serve very nice tea there and friendly service but still has room for improvement on the food.

This is a very lovely place to go for afternoon tea. Excellent scones too!

A perfect celebration
Our server Natalia was very attentive and made our celebration memorable. The quality of food was excellent, the tea selection could have been more elaborate, missing the Darjeeling and oolong , the ambience was relaxing and perfect for afternoon tea. We will certainly return.

Xi Shi Lounge is our favorite place for High Tea in Vancouver. Lovely for special occasion or business lunch. Perfect ambiance, low noise so easy to talk. Love it!
