English High Tea at the Galadari - Dazzlingly and Delicious!

Indulge in an exquisitely palatable afternoon tea buffet with plush delicacies and a fine spread of pure Ceylon tea that will lead you through the astounding journey of the age old English tradition… Afternoon "High Tea" dates back to the Victorian era where people found the perfect respite from the afternoon sun sipping perfectly brewed tea, immersed in conversation with friends and family.

Today that same tradition continues amidst the cosy atmosphere of the Lobby bar of the Galadari Hotel.
Sip that perfect cup of tea while enjoying a variety of light repasts of savouries and pastries and take pleasure in a much needed "tittle-tattle"… Savour in freshly brewed tea and refresh your mind, body and soul, while our chefs work magic creating the freshest of finger sandwiches, scones and delicate pastries, accompanied with fresh creams, jams and chocolate.

Afternoon high tea at the Galadari is available from the 24th to the 31st of January in the elegantly hip Lobby Bar from 3.30p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Guests have the option to savour their tea solo or with a variety of accompaniments available on the signature menu. With Rs. 800/= nett per person, the hotel takes pleasure in offering one complimentary High Tea buffet for every table of ten... and that's not all, a complimentary cake will be offered for guests celebrating their birthdays accompanied by 10 pax or more.

Guests are served delicate sandwiches; fococcia bread with chicken salad, avocado and tomato melt, tuna and salmon cream on French bread and prawn fricadells. Pastries arrive with a mixture of corned beef, lamb Cornish, fish and potato pies and creamy mushroom and chicken puff pastries. Sweet treats include blueberry cupcakes, cream puffs, chocolate opera, date scones, strawberry linzers and lemon and orange bars adding refreshing finale to the elegant and delectably civilized experience.
