Cocktails are on most menus in London hotel bars but the execution is the secret. At my recent visit to the Malt Lounge it was easy to be impressed with the delicious drinks and attention to detail. The ice is a thing of beauty and...the surrounding drinks delicious and fairly priced.More

The afternoon tea was excellent, the food was delicious, service good. The food was Japanese/English. We asked for some extra and were very kindly provided with some additional sushi, and then felt very full.... Didn't need supper afterwards! It was however a mistake booking the...bar instead of the Tokii (the restaurant). The bar man was almost constantly rattling around making noise. However the food was so good and the ambience amazing that it made up for the noise from the barman. If we go again I would definitely book the restaurant. (Incidentally I hope we can go again before too long!)More

As we visited London from NYC, we heard great things about The Malt, so we had to go check it out! The Malt is a beautiful bar inside a classy Japanese hotel: the vibe, service, and drinks were top notch. Simone, the bar manager, greeted...us kindly and served us with beautiful crafted drinks. He was well-versed in his Japanese flavors, too, which impressed me. If you’re trying any of the snacks, definitely try the lobster&crab croquettes - they are to die for!! As a proud Japanese-American, I vouch for the Malt’s authenticity and I highly recommended it to any world travelers :)More

I have visited The Malt Lounge and Bar several times during my stay in London and enjoyed pleasant afternoon in there. The staff is very helpful. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. You will find exotic whiskies from all over the world there. A unique...feature of this place is the afternoon tea with Japanese fusion elements. You will get scones with a few bites of Japanese rolled sushi and apéritifs. The rolled sushi is good. The cucumber may require some improvement..(but in London, I figure all of the cucumbers are like that, so I would rather not make a big fuss about it.) The afternoon tea comes with a selection of teas, champagne, or Japanese sake. I had a daiginjo sake from Hyogo; it was very smooth and fresh, and went well with the greyish winter afternoon. The atmosphere is very calming, with wood décor. One interesting fact is that there are wood tablets on the upper parts of the walls with Japanese proverbs. The one that caught my eye read “Kamo no mizu kaki.” The lesson is that a smooth-swimming wild duck on a pond never shows its efforts under the water. It means that there is beauty in a humble soul. The proverb also warns against making judgments just by looking at what is visible on the outside. Thank you, the bartender, Mr. O and lovely Hungarian staff. I look forward to visiting The Malt Lounge and Bar again soon.More

We had the best afternoon tea, cocktails and drinks at The Malt. The afternoon tea was a huge selection of British classics and Japanese flavours. It was so much actually, but so well prepared and presented that it was not hard to finish it all!...The cocktails we had were really good and came with quite a bit of a show by Dimo and his team (will not talk about details as to not spoil the delight for you!). The sparkling sake was superb and we were impressed by the whisky selection. We’ve travelled through Japan for months, and the flavours and the interior design of The Malt brought back the great memories of our time and distillery visits there. If you like cocktails, whisky, sake, amazing food and Japanese design, you will love this place!More
