Went for afternoon tea with vouchers bought during flash deal and made reservations online. Was disappointed that there was no full length glass that overlook the streets as per their promotional photo. Maybe it was at some other part of the restaurant that i did not see.

Hot tea was TWG and allow us to have unlimited choice of tea. However, the hot tea flavours are not very extensive. The iced drinks were interesting but a tad too sweet for me. The afternoon tea selection was for the Breast Cancer Awareness month so all food items were pink. The savories were tastier than the sweets in my opinion as the sweets are too sweet. Not sure if it is the same for the normal series.

The service was friendly and casual. Very helpful to offer photo opportunity with the basket when first served.

Order the high tea set for 2 at $48++
The tea choice in the photo was iced lychee tea and hot honey lavender. Tea was fairly good. However, the food was not up to my expectation. Felt very similar to catering food small bites. First time i had afternoon tea and was not filling at all.

Also, note that hot tea is refillable once with hot water but one of the server gave us the wrong info (say no refill) when we ordered. Service overall was fairly good.

Used the burpple discount 1 for 1 at Lobby Lounge for Afternoon Tea. The set comes with 2 tea/coffee per person and there is a live station for gelato ice cream (durian, choco mint and vanilla). The tea is TWG so it was good. They even have a special blend for the hotel. The savories were really good, the cakes and scones on the dry side. But totally worth the value considering the atmosphere and service. The staff were abit busy and nobody attended to us after we sat down. We need to call the staff to get a menu and make our drink order. Apart from that, they were very polite and would explain the set and tea flavours to us. Would go again

Set came with 2 champagne for 2 of us and a tea selection.

It was my 2nd visit to Colony and i was slightly disappointed. I came last year and the savories was better thought out with a meaning to each dish and the sweets were on a buffet. I was very impressed back then.

For the same price, i gotten all savories and sweets cramped into the same 5 layer tiffin container. Each item was average, while the cookie was too flour-y. I understand it is due to the covid measures but i feel like they could have done better. Would not recommend until they change back to the previous menu.
