Great atmosphere, a little pricy but overall a nice experience. The food was good and they have great tea.

I find this place by accident and it turned out to be the No.1 surprise to my Sandakan trip. They have fabulous gardens, beautiful british atmousphere, and friendly staff. take a cup of tea and enjoy your afternoon time

Bad service & slow response staff, low quality "cold" food, overpriced & over expected experience...Staff shows unpleasant & sour face to us, but not the next table's western guest...They also not happy as I asked for a plain water...My boy were running around but seemed annoying them...Plate was cracked...Cold scones with canned jam...simple sandwiches with vege only...The above are spoiling the whole adorable atmosphere...Think before you go...
