“Our London trip was great until we stopped at the National Cafe for afternoon tea. It was a Friday afternoon and things were pretty slow in the cafe. There were eight people in the cafe including four waiters, who were busy chatting. We were totally ignored. After 10 minutes of waiting, finally, a waiter stopped chatting and brought us a menu after we repeatedly tried to catch his attention. We were totally ignored again after that. We waited for another 10 minutes, no one came over to take the order. We thought okay, maybe this is how the Brits serve their customers. Then two men dressed in sharp suits came in. The waiter immediately greeted them and brought them a menu. At that moment, we decided to walk out and the waiters didnt even try to stop and ask us what happened. Clearly, this is not a place that welcomes tourists. We've been to many restaurants in many countries. In terms of service, this is the worst experience we've ever had. We would give it a zero star if we could. We would never go back again and don't recommend this place to anyone.”
