Away from the crowd up in the clouds

To be honest, I have not heard about this restaurant before.
Came here with some serious food lovers who do not share their dining experiences on social media.

It is located on the 27th floor so the views were expected to be good and better than Excelsior because Park Lane is on the corner so it has a wider view.
Had the semi buffet lunch which costs around $500 per person.

Found a few bad points about this place:
-Food was not labelled which was annoying.
-The chairs were difficult to get in and out of without disturbing people sitting beside you.
-The tea pot size was inconsistent, for the same tea, two people were served different size pots and when more hot water was required they forgot.

Food from the buffet table:

I loved the bread because they had a great choice of butters.
The hams and cheeses complimented the bread nicely.

After learning how to tackle a crayfish, I had to have more because they were delicious.
There was lots of orange matter in the head area and the crayfish meat was fresh with a hint of sea salt taste.
I used to twist the head off thinking that was it!!

Surf and Turf:

Nicely presented but the tenderloin could have been juicier.
The lobster was lovely and tender on top of delicious poached turnip.

Dessert:

The desserts were not labelled which was really annoying because the orange jelly turned out to be delicious apricot jelly and not mango which I don't eat.
The black forest cake was also good too.

Breakfast tea:

To finish off, the tea was amazing because it was loose leaf tea with a strong grassy taste.
However the teapots they used were inconsistent because this other person had tea and their teapot was taller containing more water.
I asked for hot water to be added but they forgot.
