Indulge in some of the best high tea buffet places in Singapore.

Do you remember all the tea parties you use to play as a kid? Well, now that you're all grown up, you can experience the real deal by having a high tea buffet treat with friends and loved ones. Sure enough, it is a bit of a splurge, but we believe in self-reward and a little R&R once in a while. Not every single high tea buffet in Singapore will break the bank. So here are some suggestion for you to consider this weekend after payday!

Definitely, a more atas place to have high tea buffet, but what you pay extra you get back in good service and value for the food!
