The afternoon tea here was perfect. Nice charming decorations . The staff were ready to serve. If you asked for a toilet or any place they will take you there . The style of the food is awesome and the food is perfect . We will come back and spend our afternoon time at oriental author lounge again.

The room is exquisite, so if they offer to have you take the tour, stay and dine here. It is more romantic at night,

The setting, the décor, and the ambience, all assisted by some great acoustic guitar, made for a truly wonderful experience. Afternoon tea comprised an abundant amount of scones [warm], cakes and sandwiches, along with copious amounts of tea and coffee. I had a specially selected belnd of green tea, which was wonderful. The staff are excellent, courteous and helpful. You... More

If you love scones, clotted cream and jam, this is the place for you! Their tea selection is outstanding and the atmosphere is simply stunning. Don't go anywhere else...this is the only place to go for Afternoon Tea in Bangkok.

Most of all is the ambiance, second is champagne & the teas bundled with meal. The towering scones and Thai selection is not that great for our taste buds which contrary to our expectation but the service is very good. This place is perfect for a high tea and definitely we will return.

Staying in Silom

Neighborhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
