The art of British high tea is popular throughout Asia, and in Singapore, fans of the form can’t go past Arteastiq’s Boutique Tea House, to be found in a very imperious setting at the Mandarin Gallery along Orchard Road. With a name suggesting the intersection between the art of teasing and the art of tea that makes you tick, Arteastiq caters to discerning tea-drinkers looking for a modern tea lounge that preserves the sensibilities of the European salon, but with the brand always attracting a lot of custom, we strongly recommend a reservation.
Dear diners, please note the following two sittings for reservations on weekends and public holidays:
Session 1: 1:30pm
Session 2: 3:30pm
These sittings are exclusively for the luscious seafood high tea (from $98++) only. Both sittings last 2 hours. The team will confirm reservations within 24 hours of booking. Thank you!
Singapore has long been a crossroads between east and west, the classic and the contemporary. Indeed, these cultures and epochs meet at Arteastiq Boutique Tea House, located in Orchard Road’s Mandarin Gallery. Tea, of course, is an ancient Asian tradition. Taken up centuries ago by the European aristocracy, the concept of high tea has wound its way back to the origin of tea, the east, where tea aficionados enjoy their tipple (both traditional brews and teas with a contemporary twist) seated on modern lounge furniture, designed by Marxx, but reminiscent of 17th and 18th century designs.
Fruit teas, English floral teas, Chinese, and Japanese teas, dessert teas, and even alcoholic teas jostle for elbow space alongside sweet and savoury delicacies on Arteastiq’s crowded menu. And we can’t forget the crowds that flock to Singapore’s latest rave – the patented Arteastiq Art Jam. It’s a novel concept whereby customers can sip their tea together while tapping into their inner creative. Reservations are recommended.
Good quality tea. The service staff did not seem quite well-informed about the start time of their hi-tea sets telling us it starts at 1.30pm and then retracting our order to say it starts at 2.30pm (on a weekend).
Nice presentation of food and it tasted good too! Ambiance was nice. My only issue was I waited quite awhile to be seated. There was no staff there and I ended up having to go in search of someone....
Decent pasta served. The ambience is quiet and relaxing, indoors and outdoor available. Howrver, thr partitioning is done such that the cookig from next shop can be disturbing and smokey. Generally, staffs are helpful and approachable. Recommended to all.
Great food, very cozy, great ambience. Wonderful for a date! However, the waiters/waitresses need to be a little more helpful and initiative, and food may be a bit tpo costly. Overall, i would recommend this place for an experience.
The concept and tea selection are quite intriguing and yet, the service far below par compare to same cafe/bistro/restaurant. The female waiting staff at front desk was unfriendly and tend on the rude side, unhappy to attend to customers. The only male waiting staff on that afternoon was the total opposite. Will I return here? Probably not as it seems service always been lacking.
Will never get sick of Arteastiq! My go to for every occasion, perfect place to catch up with family and friends! :) Their lychee tea is the bomb, its a must order!!!
Staff was very helpful to cater to my additional guest who joined me later, helping me move to a cozy and comfortable table fo continue to enjoy our high tea. Thank you Staff Jia hui and her colleague.
Good & relaxing ambience and good food, go for the lychee tea and happy hour drinks. Service staff is attentive. Have not tried the painting session but will definitely do so.
Its always a great experience dining at arteastiq.. service was great, the ambience was great too. Definitely my new favourite place! Will definitely recommend this place to my friends and family.
Restaurant was slightly crowded but the waiter moved us to the window seat as soon as there's availability. High tea set was exquisitely designed and delicious. Staff were friendly and attentive.
