For ladies that lunch, The Wellness Group (TWG) is a heavenly spot. Many are familiar with this tea room being a popular afternoon tea destination, but did you know they offer excellant value for money set lunch and dinner as well?

I recommend checking out the dessert trolley before taking a seat. The set menu includes either a specially prepared dessert, or you can opt for a selection from the dessert trolley.
There’s only one choice for main course and today its Roasted Chicken leg coated with Asian spices, Taiping Houkui infused butter rice and French Beans. It’s not easy for a classic chicken dish to go wrong, but neither is it easy to conjure one that exceeds expectations. With succulent and juicy meat within, it was well roasted with skill. The skin had a nice crisps and is beautifully flavorsome. The rice beneath was a tad hard for my liking, but the buttery goodness made up for it.
Accompanying the main course were homemade spicy dip and an irresistible fluffy bun. A pot of tea of your choice is included in the set lunch menu; I had my usual fragrant Vanilla Bourbon tea.
We noticed another couple enjoying a lavish blue cake and hence choose it over the special dessert of the day. The Blueberry and White Chocolate cake with macarons arrived on a chilled plate. Blueberries scattered amongst the moist sponge cake gave bursts of sweetness and texture. My only complain? The white chocolate was not prominent because it was overwhelmed by too much cream.
It’s always a pleasure to find a place like TWG, where you are assured a warm welcome and attentive service. The set menu is available on weekdays for both lunch and dinner. A main course and tea will set you back $29++ while a main course, tea and dessert cost $35++.
