Visited F&M for afternoon tea with a friend and toddler son. They were so accommodating to my friend who is gluten free and my toddler who needed a high chair and isn't the quietest at times. Our waiter informed us of the afternoon tea choices available off the menu. For the gluten free option my friend had a delicious prawn risotto followed by scones and cakes. For the regular option I had sandwiches, scones and cakes. They refill your plate when you ask. The tea was delicious as was the entire experience. The setting and location is lovely. I would definitely return.

I've been there for the first time and ordered certainly one Afternoon tea for two person. Great choice of tea is available. It was really great - small sandwiches, scones with delicious crème and confiture, four small confectioneries and of course "Purple Bamboo shoot Zhi sun cha".
When we finished every dish we were served an additional portion!
So we were soon stuffed and didn't ask a slice of cake also included in price. :)) total: 245 AED and one of my memorable experience!
P.s. The interior, service and tea services are excellent!

Pleasant and quiet place to meet with friends. Especially for me, a lover of different kinds of tea and not only. Luxurious place and relevant price

Very classy setup with a wide selection of tea to choose from (a tea lovers heaven). Sandwiches and scones are good but the hero is the cake! Really meant for special occasions as its relaxing and not to noisy. Great views on the terrace when its not too hot to sit outside. Great shop to buy luxury biscuits & tea on the ground floor too.

They obviously don’t know that most teas should not be steeped longer than a few minutes to avoid a bitter taste. Sadly they have no idea how to serve a tea (even if it costs 20 dollars). They bring you a teapot with the tea leaves inside and a hand-held strainer to catch tea leaves as tea is poured from the teapot to your cup. But for green teas and other kind of teas the teapots must contain a built-in strainer for easy removal of the tea leaves so they do not stay long and get bitter.
