English Tea House & Restaurant, Sandakan.

Fancy a place to have a nice tea break session chilling, catching up with friends and family while taking a break from the hustle bustle of a city life? This is the place to be. Apart from serving fine teas from around the world, they also serve a variety of cakes and pastries along with a la carte selections of traditional English specialties and of course local Asian favorites,  they do not sell pork though.

 a place where you can also have a game of lawn croquet and its free for both adults and children

This place is able to accomodate up to 250 guests and its a perfect location to held a large garden parties, weddings and other business or personal events. They also do provide a range of wedding anniversaries and birthday packages that can be held in one of their gazebos which also opens for public when there's not function on anytime of the day.

my lil cousin who is so happy with her soft drink 

 they do serve juices too, and its fresh :) not packaged or anything close to that

my favorite hot drink at all times, hot chocolate 

a very rich chocolate filled dessert with a cherry on top!

 New york cheese cake, which is simply oh so delicious.

Tuna  Club sandwich , they do serve a varieties of Western delights and the portion is usually huge too, you can share it with another person definitely .

 Their home made burger, look at the thickness of the meat patty and the portion of the potato wedges!

and of course, a varieties of tea sets. 
This set is the most expensive tea sets among all that is available there which is the Royal Tea Set.


If you ask me personally what do I think about the price of the food and beverages here, I can honestly tell you that the price is actually quite reasonable for a coffee house / a restaurant but not for all the items. What I meant by reasonable is because they're charging the food at a higher cost but the portion is huge, service is considered top notch and the food quality is definitely there. It all depends on what you're looking for.

Been there twice and it's still my favorite place and I'm pretty sure its the same for the locals and tourists there too as they always have customers patronizing this place despite of its price.

Experience the lush, tropical greenery and cool breezes while you enjoy spectacular views of the town and bay. Relax with a cocktail in hand, socialize with friends and family under a gazebo or enjoy a wide selection of beverages at the long bar.

Award winning restaurant :)

p/s: I don't know if some of you are aware of this restaurant in KK which is located near Jesselton but honestly, that branch can't beat the original branch that is located in Sandakan in my personal opinion. You really got to just try this place in order to notice the differences :)
