[Bangkok] Harrods Tearoom @ Siam Paragon

A relaxing afternoon tea is generally not on my list of "things to do" when I am traveling - whether for business or for pleasure.  However, since our plan to the Amphawa Floating Market was cancelled, we decided we have too much time to kill and went for tea at Harrods.  Originally, I wanted to support the local coffee shops but I can't find any where I am willing to spend our money. 


Unlike Hong Kong, afternoon tea in Bangkok is actually very relaxing.  For instance, I don't have to queue.  There are also no crying babies/kids and customers talking in their outdoor voices here.  I went for their signature drop scones and the No. 18 Georgian Restaurant Blend.  My friend ordered their matcha and earl grey scones and tea (I forgot which one).

presentation is perfect!
It is made to order so it may take a while.
The fruits are very fresh.
I can't really tell the difference between the scone batter from the regular pancake batter.
Yet, they seems to be fluffier.
If I have anything to complain is that our tea actually arrived much later than the scones.
We weren't even given a glass of water the entire time.
Servers needs to be more attentive!

In addition to the Siam Paragon location, there is also a Harrods Tearoom in the new Embassy Square.  This one seems to be larger in size and got more bears on display :)  Prices in general are more affordable when compared to Hong Kong. 


Initially, we really wanted to support local businesses but we walked all over Siam Square One and didn't see find anything particularly tempting... So, that's how we ended up here...
