Great find. Delicious food. We’ll be back.
The bun house self is very relax cozy and lay back old school teahouse style, for simple peasant to have some tea and some bund to fill up their stomach and rest abit and continue their journey. When I go down below the to the teahouse I have a feeling of going to a speak easy like an old school gangster meeting place or where the rich and famous come there to enjoy a night out, but this is more a knock off due to the tabel setting and the material of the interior. They have a nice selection of drinks nice range. They have an retro service style with hot water to serve and in the tools they use. It clash much with the environment if it is used at the bun house it will not lose it charms. I like the cocktail bar. They tried so much retro element and just put them together it does not work. I would say tearoom have an focus on the old shanghai 30-40's or the Hong Kong 80-90's night club style. The food also combined give me a feeling of a peasant food not what you will see in a restaurant even for today's normal standard, they can serve it but it will have much more charm if they use a bit of attention in their presentation. They food is good nice flavors remind me of tradition style with a twist quality is good. It is not cheap in compare to Chinese food in London this price will expect like a high end Chinese restaurant, even if they try to use some fancy ingredients, compare to bunhouse the different is big. With high prices for just some noodles and some crumbled meat and an egg 12,5 before service cost and 5+ pound for tea nothing special I wonder how do they survive I suppose with bunhouse what is packed. Teahouse should be the nose of the salmon. Like the restroom, with the retro approach but should be cleaner and more focus on the detailed finished. Service is friendly genuine, I will say with all the fancy restaurants I have been. Love the little girl that helpt me, she is adorable but need to be more a pro level but I suppose that is how the restaurant row.
Absolutely loved every aspect. Thank you. Shame that the beers were out of stock! Also, didn't realise that it is only the shorter brunch menu available on Sunday afternoon, but loved our experience, nonetheless!
food and drink = incredible. The venue is stunning, as well as being clean and cosy. the only thing that let down our experience was that the bar was obviously understaffed. we asked for water at least 3 times and it was never brought over, a single shot took about 15 minutes to arrive (after the waiter admited he had forgotten about it, this happened twice), and this caused a little embarassment for me as I had taken out a work client after raving about the place. That being said, i will be back (this wednesday in fact!) as the food and drink and venue are worth it, and being understaffed on one day isnt a real reflection of the high-quality im sure your bar usually provides.
We had a really bad experience at this place. When our bill arrived there was a a service charge of £6.50 on it, which we paid without grumble, but the waitress told us that the bill was wrong and that the service charge was actually meant to be just over £12.00. This was quite bizarre because we paid exactly what the bill said, but she was insistent that the bill was incorrect, and wouldn't let us leave until we handed over an additional £6.00, which we did despite realising this was some sort of bizarre extortion racket. We had the bill and pointed out to her that it showed £6.50 but she insisted it was a mistake and demanded more money. It's a first for me to be told that the restaurant's own bill is wrong and that the service charge, which should be optional anyway, was understated. To be forced to hand over an additional service charge before we could leave the restaurant made us feel like we had been conned. Service was very slow, with nobody coming to take our order for about fifteen minutes, despite the relative paucity of other customers. Cocktails were fine but absolutely not worth the hassle and expense of being held to ransom for a double service charge.
Warm, friendly service, fun atmosphere and delicious food.
Lacked atmosphere thought I was booked upstairs which did have a good vibe, downstairs was dead. Cocktails bad and over priced.
The atmosphere is very Hong Kong inspired. The drinks were unique and inspired. Thank You.
I really love the Tea House, I really love the 气氛, I really love the 鸡尾酒, the 叉烧饭, the 卫生间[美, the 装饰 and the seats are sooo 舒服. The only thing and I mean the only thing was that my 信用卡 got rejected twice, and it was so 不好意思 as I was with this really 帅哥. I called my 银行 and they told me it was not because i 没有-ed the 钱 but because the card terminal was 坏了.
Delicious, sophisticated flavor combinations! Great atmosphere and exciting drinks menu
A bit pricy but both drinks and food were amazing, would definitely visit again soon.
Awesome manager with great customer service
I wasn't served by a polite and sincere waiter during my dinner at the Tea Room. Personally think that the food didn't worth costing that much. The Char Siu Rice disappointed me so much.
Food was good, but overpriced....... and there was a waiter being so rude to me and my friend, and i don't really know why. Apart from this guy, everyone was friendly and nice.
Great atmosphere, FANTASTIC food and a good location. However, service was pretty appalling. At 6.05 I ordered a green tea and I didn't get it until 6.45. At that point there was only one or two other people in the tea house - so have no idea why it took so long. My friend ordered a beer that took 25 minutes to arrive and the waiter said he would bring us the menus back when he took our plates but never materialised so we just got the bill - which had an error on it. I LOVED the tea house so much but won't be recommending as enthusiastically as I would like due to the service. However, the staff were very polite.
Food is not good.
our dinner was a disaster. The waitress forgot to post it in the system our main courses.... so we ate some starters with white rice and one dessert. After insisted our waitress than food was missing. 45 minutes later our 2 main courses. First ant last time. Good luck¡¡
lovely place with authentic HK style food
Great ambiance and food. Could use more serving staff
Amazing place and fabulous food, go if you can!
Although we made a reservation and the restaurant was half empty, we were given a terrible table under the aircon at the back side of the restaurant. When we asked to move the waiter said that the larger tables were reserved for groups of 8. (No way that tables could fit 8 people). Throughout our dinner the tables remained empty. Out of five, two of us ended up with a cold. The waiter (a tall guy) was rude and unresponsive throughout. This place started quite well but it is the second time I have a bad experience so I am not going to recommend it any more.
enjoyed our meal
great atomosphere, the music wasnt too old fashioned but old enough to tell it totally felt like the 60s and the furniture was just so equisite. The food was great
