Had a wonderful afternoon under the attentive care of Thabang during our high tea. Wonderful assortment of food and amazing desserts. Had too many pots to count, I really recommend this to anyone who enjoys tea! Thank you very much to all involved with the preparation and service! Great job!!

Food is ok but the menu quite restrained. Service is slow and disorganised, but waiters nice. The place still looks as classy as ever,but the kitchen and service is overrated

We usually have dinner at this restaurant when we stay at Sandton City. It is luxurious, the atmosphere is very good, the service is very professional and the food is excellent. The wine list has excellent wines but is very expensive.
