English Afternoon Tea

Tired of heavy hi-tea sessions at crowded hotels with screaming children and droves of people all rushing for the buffet line? An afternoon tea at Carcosa Seri Negara might just be your thing.

This is not your conventional hi-tea with your mee siam, roti jala and ice kacang. Welcome to the world of classic indulgences and dainty china. Reminiscent of colonial days; tuck into authentic scones, rose petal jams, cucumber sandwiches and a variety of teas to choose from. Pictures speaks louder than words in this case .....

This is a favorite with expats, high society and Datin Datins sekalian, as well as those who appreciates the finer things in life. It's really serene, relaxing and comfortable here, a wonderful respite atop a scenic hill. You can talk all you want with your girlfriends, with birds chirping in the background! So get into the mood, put on your floral dress and drive up the hill now!

I have friends who actually did not like this, quote "pretentious" ... "old folks come here" ... "bo kau chiak" (Hokkien for 'not enough to eat! Haha!) Well, they are used to the conventional hi-tea fare and hustle and bustle, which has a charm on its own, of course. But this is truly something you have to try at least once in your life. Having said that, the company is all that matters for hi tea, as long as you enjoy the company, every place is a great place!

This is surprisingly not as expensive as it looks; only RM60++ per person. You need to book in advance though as it's only on Saturdays 3pm onwards and the place is really small.
