The food in the high tea set is too little. Just like kids meal. But taste is good.

Visited there early in 2018 service and food was great. Looks like somebody has taken over and the high tea was so disappointing hardly anything on the platters . Will not be going back very disappointing

The High Tea experience wasn't there. There weren't any sandwiches expect for 1.

I like the vibe and nice atmosphere, as well as the great food decorations. I do appreciate that it gets really busy & hectic sometimes, But I wasn't impressed by the taste and the service.

We went to Cafe Blush for high tea. After being seated and our order taken our high tea for four firstly arrived separately from one another and no one checked on us during our two hours there. Ver poor service. Go somewhere else fir high tea and sieve the little extra.

I would. But will let my friend know about the service with one of the waitress. She not the friendliest and very impatient. When our tea pot came, she left them on the table with a loud bang. The food is nice but it’s not value worth for the quantity. Overall I had a great time with my friend.

It took 20 minutes to get a waiter this because I’ve called one of the girls. The restaurant was not busy and the door hosting was so raw and rude.

Pleasant ambience but the information we got from the wait staff regarding how many tea sets we should order for 3 people was unclear. She recommended we order two high tea sets but in fact we only got one - she later said she'd meant that one set was enough for 3 people. Unclear. The tea sets themselves were underwhelming. Luckily we only had the one but the bill still came to $90 along with drinks. This cafe is purely for the Instagram set and does not offer value for money.

the place was very aesthetic and great for pictures, the staff were soo friendly . only complaint was the lack of variety in food. I hand the chicken and mushroom pasta and it was perfect and the scones were also very nice. the cheesecake was a bit too rich

Too expensive for high tea not good value, super small portions. Says assorted macarons and it was one macaron size of a 10c piece. The frittata unacceptable for a high tea- a slither, and I find frittata so commonplace to put on a high tea selection. Many other French savouries to choose from. Scone unusual texture and very sweet not a proper scone recipe tastes more like a financier!
Pasta cold, small portion did taste nice though even if too cold. It wasn’t busy so I don’t know why it was served so cold.

Went here for the high tea. I would not bother, as $45 will get you 3 tiers of nothing and a stale scone. I’d recommend going down one level to the desert place directly below.

Busy time so service was slow. We had the high tea - sweet things very nice but some of the savoury things (quiche mainly) were not so nice. Tea was good but coffee weak. Overall we had a nice time but a less busy time may have been better.

Did not enjoy. Not friendly service. Had a server that was perhaps moody. Did not receive a warm welcome as you would expect to. I guess how the place makes you feel affects a lot.

Wonderful experience celebrating a High Tea at Cafe Blush for my daughters 16th Birthday. Food was delicious and the tea was wonderful. Great service, will definitely go back.

Overpriced and overrated. The booking was confirmed multiple times by the cafe and upon arrival, there was no table available. The high tea was pretty ordinary and my son's pasta didn't turn up at all. He grabbed something from the food court instead. This was not what we wanted for Mother's Day. Go somewhere better and enjoy the experience.

High tea was a bit too small for the value. Wish there was more savory on the plates and less sweets. Overall service was prompt and attentive.

The service was missing. Ordered high tea, and then had to ask for plates, cutlery, constantly ask for water.

The setting was comfortable and the food was enjoyable. All 10 of us enjoyed the experience. There could have been a bit more assistance from the staff... ask if more water was needed or if anyone would like anything else. We had the hightea but some of us were very hungry and didn't get the option to have anything else added. I would have just asked however to get the attention of the staff was difficult, even to just get the bill. All round a fun experience possibly would go with a smaller group next time as the noise from the mall made it difficult in such a big group.

Food was great, service wasn't, we had to ask for fork/spoons everytime with food.
They didnt check if we needed anything else. We were there for a high tea get together but presentation wasn't satisfactory
