Runya's Room is a brand new tea room located in the new St Collins Mall. They served breakfast, lunch and high tea with European mixed in with Middle Eastern flare. An elegant tea room where everything is specific selected from French desserts, well known tea and champagne. Rune's Room served high tea daily from 11am-5pm divided into three sessions 11am, 1pm and 3pm. They also have three packages to offer differencing in the beverages whether you want tea or fancy champagne to accompany your high tea ($55-$75).

I had a meeting with Runya's Room marketing agency and he wanted to experience the while high tea experience. Because both of us have to travelled after this we opted for the basic high tea experience with Harney & Sons tea. I love the classic, elegant interior with the creme, dusty pink and brown shade decorated with classic furniture and chandeliers.

Overall, I was really impressed with the whole experience. All the dish presented was well presented as well as pretty good in taste. They have 13 dish in total and it's really hard to make all of them good but they did. The price was reasonable and it comes in a generous portions too. This has potentially in becoming the new it room in town. Watch out!
