What did your experience entail?
An afternoon tea with a Japanese theme in a cool and funky West End boutique hotel. The hotel has a different style and edge to it with cool interiors and staff with more pony-tails than usual! The Japanese Afternoon Tea is held in the restaurant of the hotel and starts with a long glass of cold fizz in crystal flutes, followed by your first course of beautiful Japanese dishes. Do not worry if you cannot use chopsticks, there are plenty of forks...
After the first course an elaborate and unique “cake stand” is brought to the table with sweet treats which will tickle tastebuds as well as being visually stunning. But, for the traditionalists there is a fab fruit scone and clotted cream/strawberry jam just to remind us that this is afternoon tea; and, of course a choice of 6 different teas in a personal pot each.
This is an Insta-must for those who love to post. It will have your friends drooling with envy and even better, the whole thing tastes fantastic and we left thoroughly happy and chilled.
What did you enjoy the most?
Having had a number of different Afternoon Teas over the years, this Japanese version is definitely my favourite. The menu is eclectic, mixing some ubiquitous afternoon tea elements with modern Japanese dishes – with or without chopsticks. There is more than enough for two, and we had not eaten all day! Staff are all friendly and keen to ensure that you are enjoying the experience, without being “in your face.”
1. Make sure not to eat anything before hand – there is plenty of food.
2. Leave some extra time to get to the hotel – remember this is central London!
3. If you are traditional in your tastes and unadventurous with food – don’t go. Try every dish, even if you have no idea what to expect when you eat it. It will Wow you!
