The Lobby Lounge is the place where one would be enjoying one's afternoons tea. The 
ambience is classy and unique. It gives a elegant feeling upon stepping in. 
Gentle sound of the piano creates a peaceful atmosphere.

One may choose from a wide selection of 40 teas ranging from Black, Green, Herbal Infusions and Fruit teas. Assistance could be asked for if one would like to know more about the teas. We ordered their signature Irish-Whiskey Cream Tea. It was excellent as it was very unique. The teapot came with a metal canister with a candle inside which last around an hour. Tea can be refilled unlimitedly. And we got enjoy our warm tea all the time. 

Latte (RM20++) and Cappuccino (RM20++)
Decent Latte and Cappuccino. Loving their classy and royal themed cup and saucer. 
It was good but it could be better with the price given.

The Traditional English Afternoon Tea (RM75++ per person)
The three tiers consists of sweets, finger sandwiches, scones and savouries. 

The first tier consists of delectable pastries. 

The second tier consists of mouth-watering sandwiches (turkey ham and cheese and salmon and cream cheese). Their sandwiches are fresh and delectable.

The third tier consists of scones and savouries. They serve plain and raisin scones with clotted cream and jam. Their scones are freshly baked. Personally, this place serves one of the best scones I have eaten before. The savouries served includes Chicken and Mushroom Pie and Quiche Lorraine which are warm and very scrumptious. This English Tea Set offers the good combination of sweet and savoury. 

Vege wrap (RM58++)
My friend who is a vegetarian decided to try out this vege wrap. The wrap consist of assorted grilled vegetables with Basil Pesto Sauce. The wrap was good. Tho the fries are normal and for me it's kinda overpriced. But that range of price would be expected since it is an ala carte dish in a hotel. 

One bad thing about it is they don't have smoking area and non smoking area. It's quite disturbing when someone is smoking in the lounge while one is enjoying your afternoon tea. Hoping that they would make some changes to the setting of the restaurant.

Overall, professional service, excellent scones and classy ambience. You should give this one a try if you're seeking to enjoy some afternoon tea in KL. Tea connoisseurs and those who enjoy a leisurely mid-day break may indulge in a beautifully arranged three-tier English afternoon tea set with freshly baked scones, mouth-watering sandwiches and delectable pastries.
