went there on Sunday and tried afternoon tea for lunch. the volume of afternoon tea is not so big but good for standard Asian people, I think. Moreover the best point is not so crowded and bigger personal space as well as windows table with sofa. Recommend for those matured who do not like packed afternoon tea.

The usual suspects- scones, sandwiches are all there and delicious, and as halloween was approaching at the time, it has added this theme in some of its pastries. Still manage to taste good and not as scary as it looks(for example, the "Tombs" were actually chocolate cakes). Nice try though I would prefer "normal ones". I prefer the savory ones... More

Visited Axis last weekend to try out afternoon tea. Generally the service was very good as was the food quality. Not what I would describe as a traditional English afternoon tea but nice and well prepared. We had a window seat which was nice although the view is not amazing. Our only criticism was the piano. Although an accomplished player... More

In this day and age, it is extremely difficult to find a truly CIVILISED place to have a drink in a city, as almost every bar finds it necessary to bombard you with loud music, TV-screens and such.

The 'Mandarin Oriental' brand name itself is like a guarantee of the food quality, and indeed the afternoon tea experience here was pretty nice! The food was decent, the environment was comfy and elegant with live music! Will definitely come back for more!

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
