Harrods Cafe

Monday was a bonus public holiday for people working in the Selangor area and the right thing to do was to add traffic to the KL City area. (hehe...) I used to work in the city and hated public holidays in Selangor for the same reason. Not that it's reversed, I'm not sorry at all. :)

Anyway, my siblings and I had planned to have afternoon tea one of these days but never gotten the chance due to our different work schedules. But Monday was a blessing as all 3 of us had the same off day.

I heard from a good friend of mine that Harrods Cafe at Suria KLCC's afternoon tea is not bad and ask me to check it out. I called ahead of time to reserve because I'm kiasu like that. According to the friendly voice on the other side, the afternoon tea starts at 3pm and ends at 6pm. Perfect!

At 2.58pm, we arrived at the Harrods Cafe (the one with the bear outside) and was informed that there was no reservations under my name. I was puzzled as I remember speaking to someone and reserving a space (not that the place is full...). That was when the waitress asked whether I made reservations at the other Harrods Cafe. I was like, how many Harrods Cafe have you got here? Apparently there are 2 Harrods Cafe in Suria KLCC itself, silly me!

The main one is located on the same floor as ben's and Godiva and the other one is located on the Ground Level, same level as Ralph Lauren and Melur & Thyme.

We trot over to the one on the Ground Level because our reservation was there and it was more cost effective there compared to the one on the First Level. Just in case, if you want to know as the view on the First Level is definitely nicer. They count per head for afternoon tea around RM80-ish ++.




Since there was 3 of us, we ordered a 3-tier Afternoon Tea Set that comprises of 2 pots of tea and Scones Set that comes with 1 pot of tea. FYI, the teas are refillable (heaven~~). You get to choose Darjeeling, Assam or English Breakfast. We ordered 1 of each flavour of tea. You also get to choose coffee or teh tarik if that tickle your fancy.

The 3-tier Afternoon Tea set is priced at RM105 which is actually decent compared to other brands in the city centre area. Most of the other places that offers Afternoon Tea sets do not do refills and you share a pot of tea and maximum you will get 2 cups each and the cups are shallow. 

The Scones set speaks for itself; 3 scones with butter not clotted cream and jam and it comes with a pot of tea. It is priced at RM30.

The portion are generous and we filled our tummy in no time and washed it down with tea. The staff here are friendly and always have a smile on their face. I will definitely come back for another session. 

All the prices are inclusive of GST and Service Charges, so whatever you see on the menu is what you will pay for. Ain't that great ?
