High tea at the Strand Hotel

High tea at the Strand Hotel

Transport yourself back a hundred years to the age of empire with high tea at the elegant and historic Strand Hotel.

The Strand was opened in 1901 when Myanmar was still part of British India, as the sister property of the Raffles in Singapore and the Eastern & Oriental in Penang - all founded by the celebrated Sarkies Brothers. The elegant colonial building retains much of its grandeur, with high ceilings, slow-moving fans and classic rattan furniture. Modern touches have been added for the comfort of the customers and the service is of the highest standard.

You'll be seated in the atmospheric Strand Café and enjoy a full, British-style "high tea" - or opt for the Myanmar high tea. The Western version features small sandwiches, pastries and other sweets while the local version offers gourmet spring rolls, local-style cakes and traditional light bites. The presentation of both is immaculate - with silver multi-tiered trays and fine china.
