Our tourist car driver recommended this cafe and he was right. We totally enjoyed their selected tea, pretty foods and sweets on beautiful plates. The cafe is not too elegant, so everyone can try a good high tea set here. It's also nice to be...More

The best tea house in town. No doubt! Great tea, great price. Have a lot of variety. Their service also excellent, and the food is very good. So far they can maintain a very high standard!

We had a quick visit to Lounge by Dilmah with some of my colleagues during our short trip to the country. We loved their tuna, cheddar, and spring onion melt waffle. I would love to visit this place again for our next business trip.
