The Place I do have my craving for high tea once in a while, but it is so difficult to find a decent place with reasonable price as I find most high tea set offered in hotels or restaurants overpriced. It wasn’t tough for me to give Lime restaurant a try, located in PARKROYAL on Pickering hotel, given that the high tea set goes at $38++ for 2 pax, inclusive of unlimited gryphon tea and in-house coffee. Reservation is a must as the restaurant is usually packed throughout the day.
The Food With nice natural lighting, the window seat is quite perfect for an afternoon of indulgence. With a three-tier display of pastries, tarts, sandwiches and scones, my favourite is the scone while the rest if the offerings were mediocre at best. It wasn’t bad for its price, but hardly life-changing.
Rants Service standard was mixed. I encountered very friendly front staff at the entrance but lacklustre service from some of the service staff.
Will I Return Again? The question is whether I’m willing to pay a much higher premium for better high tea around. At my current stage in life, it can be upsetting to waste calories on pedestrian food. Once is enough for me in this case.
