First Impression : Not the best "High Tea" in Colombo
The "High Tea" area is situated close to the pool exit near the coffee shop. It feels like the hotel had some extra space in the lobby and decided to put up a "High Tea" menu there. I was not at all happy with the setting, the only reason they seem to have this menu is because all the other hotels in Colombo have "High Tea".
The food spread was very poor and given the price you can have a much better "High Tea" experience in any other Colombo hotel. The sandwich station was utterly pointless few patrons even went there. The tea station is a nice touch but they need to work on the quality of the teas served. The selection of food(savory) was very small and contained mostly fried items. The dessert(sweet) items were equally bad and had a chocolate fountain with strange dippings. Management seriously needs to work on their "High Tea" menu items.
The service was virtually non existent and having "High Tea" at the coffee shop is a bad idea.
