“Like High Tea at the Tate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Its scrumptious. Ive even arranged tete-a-tetes with the press over the Imperial's high tea. Its silver service and has the best scones and sandwiches.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

After a hot chaotic day in Delhi, there is no better way to unwind than having afternoon tea at the Imperial. The choice in the buffet (available in weekends) was great and everything I tried was excellent (from scones, to sandwiches, to eclairs).But the real star is the hotel itself, a magnificent building from the 1930s, very lush and full of history - fantastic!!

“An elegant cup of tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Atmosphere of old England in this conservatory room where not only any sort of tea and scones are served but everything else you may desire is here. Leave some space for dinner!

“Lived up to expectations and reputation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Went on weekend when high tea is a simple buffet. Nice choice of excellent quality but the ambience really makes the experience special. To bad their isn't a grand piano or string quartet playing in one corner to make it perfect! Be sure to reserve a half hour to walk around to look at the photos spread out through the hotel.
