Such history and ambiance. Fantastic memories of yesteryear at this simply beautiful residence. Afternoon tea on the patio was a highlight. Rooms oozing with history. A real must for those who love the days of the empire.

If you want an afternoon with character from the ageing building with a nice terrace, to the no-frills but excellent selection for afternoon tea with efficient and attentive service, then this is worth every Ringgit. More sweet than savoury, the two healthy-sized sandwiches and hot mushroom pie are more than enough when faced with the sweet selection. Fruit cake, apple... More

Went here as a party of 3 + baby. Excellent service and very relaxing piano accompaniment, even let one of our party play. Very good selection of food, usual finger sandwiches replaced by hot mini chicken pies and smoked salmon croissants was a nice touch. Lovely cakes plus creme brulee. Probably not the cheapest tea in KL but would definitely... More
