Altitude in Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur

Updated: Apr 4

Rating: 8/10 (Quality is inconsistent)

Will I come back: Yes

Pork-free, serves alcohol


This post is based on Halcyon Days x Banyan Tree’s British Afternoon Tea Menu (RM148/pax).



Food:

The spread was quite different from the regular spread, and I actually preferred this. Although the portions are a lot smaller, quality was slightly better.


Sweets:

They were quite sweet (especially the Lemon Meringue). The Battenburg was basically wrapped with a layer of sugar wrap and it was way too sweet so I removed it. Loved the Victoria Sandwich (buttery) & Sticky Toffee Pudding (moist and rich).


Overall they were acceptable for me (I have a sweet tooth.) But if you don’t like desserts that are overly sweet, then better think twice.


Savouries:

Old-fashioned, classic sandwiches. Other than the cucumber sandwich, the rest were good. Noticed that the bread was softer too. Not much variety for savouries, this is the Classic Afternoon Tea after all.


The best scones I’ve had in KL up to date. Beats the one in Four Seasons this time round. So buttery, crusty outside moist inside. Wish I could order extra scones!


Biscotti was buttery and crunchy but was slightly burnt on the edges.


Tea selection was the same, and still didn’t manage to find a favourite.
