    Came with high expectation to host visitors - regarded raffles hotel as one of the best in SG, ended up with nothing but disappointment - extremely short staffed: 20 mins waiting to be seated, 40 mins waiting for coffee to come - all orders been missing: waited for the mains for more than a hour, it came after the restaurant is cleaning up for the...

    next round The overall experience does not live up to the reputation, on the contrary as a negative proof to their motto of “ true luxury is not about what you do, it’s about how you feel” - definitely not a good experience as a host/ visitors

    Had the Seoul afternoon tea, food was decent but for its hefty price ($88) would definitely expect more buffet style instead of set style. Seating time was also very strict at 90 minutes even though there were still empty seats around. Not recommended with its hefty price, totally not worth at all. Better off going for high tea at Fullerton or Reg...

    ent which is way more worth it. 1 star only for the food. Nothing else worth mentioning.

    Had a wonderful lovely afternoon tea at this beautiful classy venue. Thank you to the lady playing the beautiful harp which gave the relaxing vibes. 😊 The food & service was good. The little negative feedback I had was I would prefer a warm scones.
