“Great service, but OK food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I was told that High Tea at Raffles is a must do event at Singapore, so I booked myself a table and came here.

While I was quickly shown to the table, it took the waiters a while to realise I was at my table. However after they realised this, they were always prompt to serve me and was ready to fill my drinks and plates.

The food was nice, but not exceptional. There are some western type pastries, such as small cakes and cookies, as well as Asian foods such as steamed dumplings. However, the variety was not huge and I would've been happy with just what was on the three-tiered high tea serving plate.

However, the ambience and the mood kicked this experience from just average to very good!

Warning: just because they said that the cost of the High Tea is $SGD58, there's also a service charge and tax to add to it!

“Great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The staff were attentive and made you feel special. Cecille was excellent too. The room is quite exquisite and in the afternoons High Tea may be taken there.

“Christmas Afternoon Tea in Tiffin Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Took a lively toddler here for tea just before Chistmas with great trepididation but it was wonderful. They made him SO welcome - put him in a matching Colonial style high chair right by the harpist which fascinated him. Food and ambience delightful too. A great family outing.

“If it's curry your looking for......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Look no further. The spread here is fit for a Indian Prince or Princess. Yes it is a little bit on the expensive side but it is Raffles after all. The quality of the lunch bufffet here is second to none. Hot and cold appetizers as well as an amazing selection of main dishes. Seafood, meat and Vegetarian tastes are all catered for. It is not overly spiced if that is your worry! To round off a meal try the home made pistachio ice cream which will blow you away. All of it should be washed down with an ice cold Indian beer. The service and staff are excellant. Nothing I can fault here.
If you are not staying at Raffles and want to experience the hotel atmosphere at its best skip the "Sling" at the long bar and put the money saved towards a curry lunch or dinner. You wont be disappointed
