A luxurious evening filled with laughter and of course a sophisticated High Tea platter with a mesmerizing view of the Kandy city!!
A few weeks ago we tried the afternoon high tea platter at the Golden Crown hotel situated just a few kilometres away from the Kandy city.
Clocking up to Rs. 1800 (net) for two it came up as a 3 tier platter with 11 savory items and 5 sweet items in it. Where you can choose either tea or coffee as your drinks.
The savory collection had two mini pizzas, four tarts, three sandwiches, fish rolls and corn muffins. The savoury collection was not as fancy as we expected with an average taste, also they had more vegan friendly food with a few seafood food, such as prawns and fish which I skipped because I didn’t like the taste much.
Moving on to the sweets we did not receive any fancy sweets like we expected. But thesweets served tasted really good.
The cake which was served taste really good and got my full attention that day
We selected milk coffee as our drink, but we expected some cool beverage to go on with our high tea platter due to the hot humid weather.
But they serve hot tea or coffee only which was actually a con and therefore we ordered an extra virgin mojito.
So far we have tried lots of high tea platters in Kandy, but this high tea platter worths for the price we paid. Because that hotel is 5 star luxury hotel and also the beautiful mountain view with the eye catchy greenery gave us a very calm and relaxed feeling.
The overall rating would be 8/10 with our high tea experience, but 10/10 for relaxed ambiance and the beautiful mountain view.
Tip: Reserve your table with a mountain view in the corner inside the restaurant, don’t reserve a table of pool side.
They usually serve their High Tea from 3.00PM to 7.00PM at their rooftop restaurant. We made an early reservation so we received our platter within 20-30 minutes.
