Best High tea experience in Sydney, large selection of savoury & desserts and as many cocktails as you want. The wait staff are amazing, always courteous & friendly. Nice vibrant atmosphere with the best views of Sydney harbour. We’ve been to Blu bar & Altitude 3 times now & we always look forward to returning. Well done to everyone at Blu Bar, Altitude & Shangri-La! :)

The High Tea was a wonderful and different experience with the buffet style selection. The views and atmosphere were amazing! The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. My husband and I had a wonderful time and it was a very special birthday treat for myself. I would highly recommend the High Tea experience!

Views were fabulous. Food was good. Service to organise reservation was terrible. 6 x phone calls required to confirm reservation and payment. And when the party arrived they were told there was no reservation for them!

I booked for high tea - and thought I would get a selection served to my table - instead it was a buffet, without any explanation from the waiters. also I got 'thrown out' after 1,5 hours - but that wasn't explained to me up front!? I was told I could sit in the bar - but the bar wasnt open, and it was not a cosy place to end the experience...
