I went to celebrate my 40th birthday at The Shangri-La Vancouver for afternoon tea, it was so nice and elegant. There was a live piano playing and at the end of the tea they played Happy Birthday and brought me out a special cake. Going the extra mile is what you can expect from The Shangri-La, it's one of the... More

Three tiers of perfectly wonderful delicacies topped off with the most delicious tea choices! I chose 'Rose French Vanilla' tea which was to die for! Although all the food was delicious, my highlight was the fresh and flaky scones with clotted cream and homemade jam. We took a friend out to celebrate a birthday and it was a very special... More

The setting is lovely and perfect for a nice afternoon enjoying High Tea. The resident piano Player is there Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons. His music is superb, playing a lively variety of old and new tunes. Charming!! The server could have been a bit more attentive. The scones were not as nice as they have been on other visits....
