Very good experience and good services! Price is high, but better to experience at lest once. You really need to plan ahead, the room is always busy. We planed last year but too late, this year we booked one and a half months ahead.

I came here for a bridal tea and oh my this was amazing. The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable about the teas and food, the environment is comfortable yet classy. This would be nice for a special occasion or just an afternoon with friends.
