Still remember my first visit, afternoon tea was RM55 and 15 years later at RM88. They served the best scones in town! Hope the government... More

I believe the Carcosa is about to finally close after waiting for refurbishment for a number of years. What a shame as I wonder when it will re-open and how it will look. If its not too late its worth trying to stay at this historic property. Set in a beautiful park area it can be a little difficult for... More

Carcosa Seri Negara was truly luxurious and elegant in her heydays but now she looks tired and worn out. Her impressive lawn is still manicured but the garden and shrubbery around the building could do with some trimming and tidying up. Housekeeping has done a good job as overall the place is clean, well stocked up and well kept when... More

Cozy english tea dining at a historic location for a change... Service charming... Food plenty for the afternoon tea time gluttony... An experience for that seen that done that listing for the old colonial feel ... What more can be said of that cold wet tropical hazy day..

My friends and I had to carefully consider venue options to host a bachelorette afternoon tea party for one of our dearest friends. As she is a huge fan of afternoon high tea and particular about ambience, we decided to check out Carcosa Seri Negara for the event as it was highly recommended. From the time we made a trip...

High expectations always precede this venue, with its exclusive settings of lush greenery in the midst of the concrete jungle of KL. An afternoon toddler's birthday event was the reason for a visit. The ambience and settings give a formal yet a little dated look to the foyer and reception area. But I believe it was recently upgraded as the... More
