We're here upon request from our girlfriend who wanna have afternoon tea for her birthday celebration. After some researching, we settled for the SG50 Afternoon Tea at Axis bar & lounge, Mandarin Oriental hotel.

Located at level 4, overlooking modern SG cityscape, this place is a sanctuary of peace and quiet on a lazy weekday afternoon. Great for lounging and catching up with friends over a cuppa.

SG Haze

They served a 5 course Afternoon Tea set, $42++, which included two choices of tea or coffee. The menu changes every month, and for SG golden jubilee, they are serving local themed tea sets to celebrate the occasion. We had an 'Indian' theme menu for the month of September.

My Emperor's white garden tea

First course was a tea jelly drink, Masala chai & cinnamon jelly. Yep, the Indian flavor was obvious, the taste was acceptable for me though, albeit a little exotic.

Next, we had a variety of small bites served on plates. Majority of these were seasoned with Indian spices. I liked the Spicy prawn and the Chicken tikka stuffed mini pita. The others were rather ordinary.

The next course was two kinds of flaky puffs, one contained curried Potato filling, and the other had a spiced Fish meat filling. The Potato puff was fine but the Fishy puff was too 'Indian' taste for my liking. I had to drown the overpowering smell in my mouth with lotsa tea!

After having plenty of savories, the sweets were served. First up, some Cookies & cream scones and Pineapple scones, served with clotted cream, lemon curd and jam. I didn't eat these as they smelled extremely buttery but my girlfriends liked them though.

Then, more sweets came sitting on a 3-tier tea stand. There were 6 variety of cakes and pastries on the stand. Many of them were overly sweet. The only stand-out was the Raspberry tart, refreshingly sweet and tangy, which we all liked.

Lastly, we ordered our second drink to go with the Complimentary birthday cake for our girlfriend. I had Mocha while the rest had ice chocolate drink. The chocolate cake was , again, very sweet...we're getting serious saccharine coma!

Dining experience at the Axis bar was generally decent. Food was above average, with a little hits and misses here and there. Service and ambiance was great. I would recommend some homework be done to find out the menu for the month before heading down. The Indian theme menu we had was a tad too exotic for us, we couldn't truly appreciate it. Do check for credit cards promo as well.
