    Newens Tea HousePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Newens Tea House is an absolutely stunning lounge that is both vibrant and luxurious. Everything looks really grand here, even though their space is actually pretty small. Not to mention that they have quite the amount of furnitures as well as a piano that will take up quite a lot of space. Apart from all that, the high-tea set is pretty decent as well. Though you might need more than the recommended amount of people to finish it, the portion within the high-tea set is actually pretty huge. Scones, finger sandwich, macaroons, cakes and tarts are what is available, as well as a cup of tea.

    NobuPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Everyone has heard of Nobu, or some of you might have even been there. For those who don't, Nobu is a fine dining international Japanese brand that had landed in Malaysia quite some time ago. They're famed for all the exquisite and luxurious Japanese dishes that some can only dream of. In any case, not many would know that they actually do offer high-tea. Quite surprising eh? Unlike most European high-tea sets, Nobu's variant is done in a rather unique bento-like box. Flashing an array of colourful bite-size dishes, each one of them does pack a significant amount of flavour and texture. 

    Tips

    Weekends 2.30pm to 5pm only. Reservations available.

    Things to expect

    A warm and cosy place with excellent service.

The cafe itself is mostly quiet with minimal noise, the service is quick and efficient, though they may be rather rude sometimes. But all and all, they will get the job done.
