It is a colonial bungalow turned into a restaurant/cafe! From the greenery in the garden (exterior) to the interior, it was superb in terms of showcasing the immaculate British details.

The interior had a wall full of STG tea canisters and the dining area features British decor that was wondrous, reflecting an era forgotten.
They also have an upstairs floor with lots of dining space, and also few function halls for private functions.
There is myriad range of tea, from British to local Sabah tea. The Empress tea cost less than RM20!
Since we have had too much chicken during the Ipoh food hunting trip, I opted for lamb which was their bestseller. It was very tender and came with mashed potato and stewed carrot and potatoes like most lamb shank. The gravy was thick.
Initially I almost ordered Chicken with Tea or Chicken with Orange but then, those could have easily been cooked myself so I finally went for chicken roulade which was the right choice, tender, juicy and unique as it came with spinach inside, something I don't know how to make myself. I even preferred this to the lamb shank.
The tiramisu mousse was very unique as it was served with kahlua cleverly and neatly laced in between. It was simply sinful and pure bliss for those who love alcohol in their desserts.

Our entire meal came up to RM120.65 including taxes which is quite reasonable for sophisticated restaurant that even the Datin/Datuks come for dinner. The pasta costs RM 20++ till RM 38 for the seafood ones.
They even have high tea sets which one could try as the desserts are proven to be as tasty as they look.
