If you are a food lover who enjoys bold flavors and impactful cuisine this is not the place for you. The decor is cut; and even though it is obvious no expense was spared in setting up the concept there is nothing special when comparing it to places abroad of a similar style.
I ate here 3 times and each time I left wondering about the rave reviews. I've had the breakfast items, many of the desserts and some entrees which include Tandoori Chicken sandwich, egg custard with smoked salmon, crab and quinoa salad, bagel, chocolat, blueberry cheesecake etc. Nothing has impressed me or left me yearning more. In fact once I even left a bit hungry. Another pet peeve - desserts sit in a refrigerator and when it is presented, though very beautiful, tastes frost bitten. This happened on all 3 visits; with a variety of desserts so I can't say it was an isolated experience.
The prices are also high but I understand that creating visually appealing items is time consuming and that is what you pay for. I mean simple teas like twinnings are overpriced.
Service is average. The staff is mostly foreign so language barriers exist and service tends to slow down after your meal is brought. On two visits we asked for coffees and teas that just never came, once I asked for cookies to take away which were never brought. I also had some of my desserts packed up to go and the waitress picked it up with her hands to place it in the takeaway container. She was wrapping some breads for another customer and also used her bare hands. I am a clean freak so this grossed me out.
All in all, if you skip this you are certainly not missing anything. If; however' you end up there because of friends or coworkers like I did you can still have an enjoyable time but you won't be leaving there with the next visit on your mind.
