Had a wonderful experience here. Have been to a lot of afternoon teas in London and this was different in terms of the style and food offered. The service was fantastic. The Dim Sum was just okay but the curry puff and char siu pastry was excellent. The desserts were incredible and so beautifully presented. Would definitely be back.

Absolutely superb. I had a high expectation and can’t believe it was surpassed. A Singaporean take on afternoon tea which blew the traditional version out of the water. The highlight was the patisserie with the intricate detail and incredible flavour combinations. Having a chance to discuss it all with the chef Cherish Finden was an unexpected bonus.

We went for the afternoon high tea. Very great service from the waiter/waitresses and tea sommelier. Cherish Finden went around saying hi to guests. Amazing experience with the food.

Hands down, one of the best afternoon teas I’ve ever had! I’m an afternoon tea fanatic but the one at Pan Pacific is hard to beat! Forget about scones (and the usual question: clotted cream on top of jam or viceversa?) and usual sandwiches…here you get dumplings, Chinese buns and crunchy savoury pastries. The sweets are out of this world! Cherish Finden, the Executive Pastry Chef behind this tea, has created something really special and unique! My personal favourite was maybe the lychee one, but all the sweets are simply delicious and so beautifully presented.
The service has been impeccable, which made the entire experience hard to forget!
Well done Cherish and well done Pan Pacific London!!!

The kopitiam afternoon tea was wonderful. All of the staff at the Pan Pacific were really welcoming and attentive. We couldn't believe how delicious every mouthful was and the food looked stunning. It was a dream come true to talk to Cherish about her creations and hear about her inspiration. We are already planning a return trip.

What imagination (kampung life in Singapore) and the flawless execution! We have not visited family in Singapore because of lockdown, but the afternoon tea made our week! The flavours and the theme magically transported us to Singapore … ever so briefly. Cherish humbly reflected our compliments to her team. We applaud her generosity in giving us some of her time and reflecting the efforts of her team and the front of house. Bravo Pan Pacific! You made our week!

The Best Afternoon Tea we have had!

From the moment we walked through the doors we felt welcomed. The restaurant had an opulent feel but not in any way intimidating.
The food was beautiful and tasty and so much lighter than a traditional English afternoon tea.
Cherish made a point of coming out to each table to explain her concept and ask for feedback. As a huge fan of the Bake Off Professionals it made my afternoon!

Wonderful experience for my dad’s 70th birthday. Delicious and authentic Singaporean and Asian flavours with such attention to detail and excellent customer service, especially catering for allergies. We were made to feel so at home and very comfortable. The hotel is brand new and beautiful. Really fantastic and unique afternoon tea and would thoroughly recommend. The food was great and the patisserie, as expected, was phenomenal. Thank you to Cherish, Daniel and team for a simply unforgettable experience.
