Enter the enchanting realm of WONKA's High Tea Buffet, where culinary magic meets sweet imagination in a delightfully delectable experience crafted by the enchanting confectioners at Shangri-La Sydney.

Inspired by the extraordinary character at the centre of Roald Dahl's iconic children's book, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," and the upcoming film "WONKA" (in cinemas from December 14) this whimsical experience will transport you into a magical universe where gastronomic wonders come to life.

Indulge in a symphony of flavours inspired by the wondrous story explored in “WONKA” of how the world's greatest inventor, magician, and chocolate-maker became the beloved Willy Wonka. From Bubbly Brownie Surprises (double chocolate brownies with champagne truffle and candied cherries), to Nutty Bliss Delights (layered chocolate mousse cake), and Sourlicious Buttercream Swirls (irresistible cupcakes with buttercream icing), each bite is a ticket to a flavour-filled adventure.

Delight in savoury treats, including beef Wellington pockets filled with mushroom duxelles, roast beef and horseradish sandwiches, and classic rendered bacon butty and egg sandwiches with British brown sauce mayonnaise.

The grand finale features a Decorate Your Own Chocolate Bar Station, and a luscious Chocolate River (Fountain) —a sweet spectacle that promises to dazzle and amaze, just like the magic unfolding on the big screen.
