More a lounge than a restaurant, or even a cafe, The Rose Veranda is the go-to destination in Orchard for a daily high tea buffet that features classic European highlights, alongside local and other Asian specialities including sushi, sashimi, laksa, as well as a dessert station with more baked and sweet treats than you can possibly dream of. Situated on the mezzanine floor of the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore on Orange Grove Road, The Rose Veranda provides an excellent vantage point from which to while away a leisurely afternoon in central Singapore, but don’t forget to book ahead to snag the best seats.
Since 1991, The Rose Veranda has been a top spot in Orchard among the afternoon tea masses, with a daily high tea buffet of European, Asian and Singaporean favourites dished out in a contemporary, elegant and soothing atmosphere typical of a five-star establishment like Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. Tucked away on the mezzanine floor of the hotel on Orange Grove Road, The Rose Veranda offers the perfect location for whiling away leisurely days with your closest friends and family members, with full views of the surrounding greenery and in-house pool to complement its stellar all-you-can-eat selection.
Commence your afternoon tea experience by taking whiffs of premium teas from Monogram, A.muse and Gryphon – to name a few – before deciding on one to accompany you through your time at The Rose Veranda. Then work up an appetite with the excellent variety of hot and cold appetisers, including dim sum, sushi and sashimi, before going for heftier options such as laksa, whole salmon, or prime cuts from the gammon ham live station. You’ll know why it’s important to save the best for last when you’ve had a peek at the dessert section – truly a sight to behold with an impressive array of masterpieces like crème brulee, oreo choux pastry, coconut sago gula melaka, durian cake, macarons, and many, many more. The Rose Veranda is situated in Singapore’s premier shopping district of Orchard, putting it within easy reach from all corners of the island. Reserve ahead to avoid disappointment.
Delights all the senses to the max. Good spread of food - tastefully presented and fresh. Tea selection is great but miss the TWG white Tea range.
The Shangri La Experience is splendid, with a fine selection of international food, pastries and desserts, to indulge in both the ambience and culinary splendor.
Very nice atmosphere n food. Has been back for many occasions best afternoon tea so far compare to the rest. Good for gathering. Will be back soon
Excellent service, great selection of food and good value for money! Highly recommended if you’re looking for a venue to catch up with friends and family.
We had a pleasant and enjoyable afternoon high tea at The Rose Veranda. Good variety of food and not to mention we were spoilt for choice by the selection of teas on the menu. We were also impressed with the attentive service provided by the service staff. 👍🏻👏🏻
Enjoy the ambience, with sofa and low table for High Tea comfort. Food wise was ok, not so many selection as claimed. We complaint to the Service Crew about the beef stroganoff, beef is tough and the taste was just not right. The Laksa and the baked Salmon are good. Dessert quite decent, with a lot of min cakes and Kuehs. The other thing that was a sore is the tea restriction. They should be more generous to allow us to change the type of tea and not restricting to just 1 type throughout.
Great selection of sweet and savoury options on offer. Sadly no scones though. All the staff worked really hard to keep everything topped up at all times so you never felt things were running out. Very busy so had to queue at times but we did attend on a public holiday so probably quieter at other times. Overall very enjoyable but remember to take a jacket/cardigan as the aircon was fierce! Even my husband who never notices the cold complained he was freezing.
The Rose Veranda has changed quite a bit since my last visit 2 years ago. Basically, the overall experience was good especially the service. But sad to say the food quality was not as good as before.
Quality food is served, however, there are changes to the tea selection. Before the renovation, there used to be over 50 choices of TWG tea variety. But now the selection options have shrunk significantly. Alittle disappointed , but i will still visit again due the nice ambience as well as excellent customer service!
The service is very attentive despite the large crowd. The food portion and variety are constantly replenished. The ambiance is charming as usual. Overall, it is a great place to spend the afternoon with good friends over good food and beverages.
