Food and tea were excellent. Service not so great. Was never given a menu to start with. After 10 mins of waiting, one of the waiter came and asked to see if we have any questions and realized then that we did not get the menu.

Great ambiance; Festive afternoon tea menu was good. Very extensive tea list (a bit overwhelming) and it's hard to choose the tea just be looking at the list. Wish there was a better way to pick than reading the tea menu and taking the server's advice. The retail area of the tea room only has select ones out for sniffing and checking out, but the server told me not all of the teas in the show room area were available for the tea room. Not sure why that would be.

We expected a lovely afternoon high tea here with a long-time friend whom we hadn't seem for a couple of years -- but it didn't happen. First of all, except for S. African Rooibos, there are no herbal teas on the menu. None. Not being able to drink caffienated drinks, 2 of us had water. 2 of the 3 little tea sandwiches were dry (chicken, smoked salmon) though the egg was tasty. The scones were on the dry side. Scones served with whipped cream, not thick creame, though the jelly was good. All the pastries were suffused with caffeine in one way or another and that detracted from their light, delicate flavor. Very pricey for the quality one does not yet. The setting is lovely, but we would never return nor recommend.

We had a great time. The only negative thing is they do not have all the teas mentioned on the menu. So you could not sample the tea. The frustrating part was you could purchase the teas in the boutique. But they were not available on the menu. Its makes purchasing teas from the boutique quite difficult. Its not the servers fault. Otherwise the service was amazing. He was quite attentive to our different tastes and he had stellar recommendations and quick to recommend alternative choices. It was nice to see someone who enjoyed their job. He also gave us samples of the tea infused ice cream which was an unexpected surprise. It was a fun day.

The ambiance was beautiful and you feel like you’ve walked into a European cafe. However the food options were limited and many items on the menu were not available. Our server didn’t notify us that breakfast is only served until 11:30, and Came to take our order at 11:35...
Once we finally got our food, no one was blown away by the taste. We left feeling hungry and disappointed

I was there for my birthday! We made reservations but we arrived a bit early because the high tea food and beverage meal was so vast so many items to choose from. We chose different separate set tea tasting menus. It's great because you can High Tea by yourself, most tea rooms require two people. Our server was pleasent. Very knowledgable about the tea menu and had great recommendations. She was quite patient and unatrusive . we never felt rushed we were there for 3hours trying different teas , macaroons and crepes. It's super fun!

TWG never disappointed me! In addition to their abundant tea choices, their food is comparable to those of restaurants in 5-star hotels. After visiting here many many times, I just found that they can cook everything. You can always find new stuffs in their seasonal menu.My friends and I visited here on oct 1st for their limited mooncake. The mooncake set was a liitle expensive; about 56 per person, but only one mooncake was offered per two sets ordered. So we ordered two mooncake sets and ordered two extra mooncakes for 25 each. (Amazing that they had Okonomiyaki in this set......)Also, since it was the first day in october, we had the chance to try their october special set. In that menu they offered duck breast as the main course. I never knew that duck breast could be so delicious when it was cooked like steak! Duck breast had become my alternative choice for steaks after then.

Great selection of tea and had lots of help by our server to pick one. Felt rushed when our server asked us about our dessert selection when one more person was finishing her savoury dish, but she was still very polite and friendly it did not bother us. Was not impressed by their wagyu, but the tempura zucchini flower was delicious

I visited TWG with a friend for high tea over the weekend, and had a pretty good experience overall. I really liked how we were both able to get different Tea Set menus, since most I've been so far expects everyone at the table to get the same thing. She got the West Coast Tea Set and I got the Jubilee Tea Set. The food here was all well made, and they offer one of the largest tea selections I've seen for high tea. All staff here were extremely courteous and provided excellent service. We didn't have to wait long for anything, and the staff were knowledgeable in the different teas to make recommendations based on your taste preferences. I would definitely go back to try more of their menus.

Two of us went there. Set menu can be shared by two people so it's like about 25/per person. Should be enough food unless someone's really hungry, but as afternoon tea it's perfectly portioned. Snacks are delicious, especially the salmon and miso pudding(is it a pudding? The texture is like pannacota). Desserts are not bad cause all of them are tea infused so it won't be too sweet(but it's also sweeter than what I would appreciate). We also ordered ice cream and Sakura sorbet. White jasmine tea ice cream is definitely a must-try while the sorbet is not recommended. After all, TWG deserves a 80 if notch8 is a 50.

I enjoyed the service and food at TWG very much. Reza was excellent in his explanation of the different teas. The service and presentation was excellent however I found the tea flavor to be a little weak for my taste. Given everyone taste is different I highly recommend to give TWG a try and experience afternoon for yourself.

The food was delicious and the ambience was great. The tea was not very strong, however, because of their business model. If you want to sit for a while, sip your tea slowly as you ONLY get one pot of it.

My friend and I had a wonderful time at TWG. We both had the Jubilee tea set menu. The savoury dishes were satisfying, the sweets was acceptable but i had better desserts somewhere else. Certainly room for improvement on the sweets. The tea selection itself was great. Service was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was just right for 'tea party' or date. We would definitely be back, maybe we will try their cakes next time :)

Was served by a new server who was slow, unfriendly, and generally clueless. When the server did come over after 10 minutes of us sitting looking at the menus, we were never greeted, and ordering a simple set was difficult.

After finishing desert, we waited 20 minutes for the bill... We did manage to speak to management and let them know about the issues we encountered and we were offered macaroons as compensation, which we turned down.

They only have 12 tables, and they had enough staff on hand to the point where a few were standing around watching. Just seemed very inefficient, as if they're still figuring out all the kinks.

Very odd experience overall. Will not be back.

I have been to this restaurant many times for their fabulous tea selection and good food. The service is professional and friendly. Of all the times I have visited TWG, this last time was the only time I was a little disappointed. I introduced a friend I hadn't see for awhile to the restaurant but we found it difficult to have a conversation over the loud music. The music selection was lovely but we had to ask them twice to turn it down so we could talk. Even after the 2nd request, the music was still too loud. Music is supposed to be background not a concert! I had wanted my friend to like the restaurant as much as I do but the loud music was a definite disappointment.
