Perfection! My second time having high tea at The Langham did not disappoint. I cannot wait to go again and will recommend others do too. Only problem was difficulty understanding the server who brought our high tea, we didn’t know what we were eating but it didn’t matter, it was pretty to look at and gorgeous to taste.

We had the afternoon tea was terrific. A loud group of people walked in and we complained to the manager and he handled the situation with them very well. Many thanks. Lovely place will return

Beautiful high tea, phenomenal service. Even though we were early, they were set up and ready for us and happy to meet our dietary requirements. Would go again.

Classical setting for high tea. Impeccable and friendly service. Playful sweet treats based around mid winter Christmas on the top plate (e.g. pistachio maccaron Christmas trees, raspberry and coconut Santa hats). Traditional and contemporary savouries. Excellent scones to round off the three plates. Don’t be tempted by the alcoholic, stick to the lovely range of teas. G&T later!

My friend and I loved our high tea experience.The bar area at the Langham is beautiful and comfortable.We stayed after high tea for some cocktails and a cheese plate both of which were very good and Edward the bartender was outstanding! Knowledgeable and friendly.

I love high tea at the Langham however we were left disappointed this time as it seemed to lack the energy and ambiance of high tea at the Langham.
1) the room was a makeshift room at the back of the hotel.
2) the sparkling option at $100 felt quite underwhelming (with the brand being a $20 bottle) when in fact there had been a champagne option offered two year prior for the same cost.
3) would have liked more savoury option on the menu or a choice to opt out of the many sweet treats.

There was renovations going on, so room wasn't the usual room.
Service was good
Gluten free high tea was horrible. I've been here before for gluten free and it was good. Seems they have changed their recipes or chefs. Dry and no flavor. Especially as not prepared to order, therefore extra dry.
Would not recommend this high tea to anyone with a gluten allergy. Cannot comment on the normal high tea.
Overall, disappointed.

Food wasn’t that great considering the money that I had to pay $160 for 2 people on the weekend. There was no view whatsoever and it was quite noisy when we were there as there was a wedding going on next door. I had much better high tea experience at somewhere else.

The main room was not in use due to construction work then we were put in the back room which had no atmosphere what so ever & to top it off we had a drunk loud Russian lady which kept staring @ us to the point i asked to move tables & then her credit card declined @ the end of her visit to add to the experience. Little did i know there was a much better vibe in the room next door where the bar is it would have been informative if the staff would have mentioned that we had the option to move in the other room especially when i told the male waiter that i was uncomfortable cause the lady next table was drunk , loud & staring. We would have moved to that room in a heart beat instead my girlfriends first experience @ high tea @ the Langham was a nightmare @ a cost of $200 plus. To top it off a crying baby @ the next table say no more

Had a lovely afternoon tea here to celebrate my mum's 70th, as requested we were sat in a quieter area and the kitchen kindly catered to my partner's unusual food intolerances so he could still enjoy the experience. Many thanks and highly recommended.

I have intolerance to wheat and cows milk and the Langham were able to provide a high tea that caters for this which is awesome. Unfortunately though the bread was soo dry it was not edible and the scones were soo dense that they were also not edible. Such a shame as the London Langham was very accommodating and I had one of the best high teas there a few years ago.

Booked for a special birthday outing as this is supposed to be the "best" high tea in Sydney. Service was appalling, despite clarifying 3 times which high tea we were having we were brought the wrong one. Sparkling wine was not served, sandwiches were dry and the pies and vol-u-vants seemed like they had been reheated. Very disappointing - I won't be recommending this to anyone, there are much better high tea options in Sydney more reasonable prices. It is far from the best high tea!! The whole experience was very underwhelming.

Lovely time. Just a couple of points:
1. add butter to come with scones
2. More sandwiches less cakes

Noise level from neighbouring table (hens) was a bit too loud.

Hi we have been there many times and loved the place and the food. This time the service was very poor to the point I even had to get up to get the water jug.

Sorry but I was with a client and it annoyed me.

Remy's Bistro at the Langham attracted us because of it's recognized quality of service and ambiance. We were very happy with the decor and appointments of the Langham, however, that's where it stopped. We arrived at 7:30 PM for our Valentine's day dinner. We were quickly seated at a very nice table between two other 2-tops where guests were already dining. Within a few moments we were served a glass of French Champagne, a tasty drink accompaniment and reviewed the menu. Our order for starter and main was taken around 7:45. We waited till 8:35 and called the waiter and asked what happened with our meal? He returned and advised "something had gone wrong and the kitchen didn't receive the order." In the meantime, the guests at the two adjoining tables had left and their used glasses, cutlery and dishes remained on both sides of us. I looked around to see if they were overwhelmed with other patrons, but the room was only about a third full. Our starter arrived about 8:45pm, 1 h 15m after we sat down. The scallops were delicate and tasty. Our mains arrived around 9:05pm. The Barra was very good however my NY Sirloin, recognized to be a bit chewier than a rib-eye, was unfortunately very chewy and not up to my expectations. While we were dining, the plates, glasses, cutlery and food remnants at the 2 adjoining tables remained. Around 9:25pm one of the waiters began a partial removal process of the adjoining tables remnants. After the dessert table we got our bill and left. We were now at the restaurant for nearly 3 hours. Too long. Our waiter was very polite and apologetic but the disappointment was done.

I said I would recommend The Langham again as I believe the restaurant has all the right tools and capabilities but someone needs to oversee the service and prevent "lost orders" while we sat at our tables with nothing for over an hour. Good luck and hope we return on a day when it all runs to plan.

Not enough staff on Valentine's Day so instead of having a nice experience, the staff members were stressed out. Not a good experience and that is the fault of the management for poor planning.

High Tea experience not as great as I had been hoping for- service was a bit slow and somewhat lacking in knowledge and enthusiasm. Waitress had trouble with the English language.

I am not sure that I would return.
