A Tea and a Story

A Tea and a Story

“In my job, I greet people from all walks of life, some just passing through and some returning over and over again, all wishing to experience the serene sophistication of Kubbeli Saloon, whispers of a bygone era. I take great pleasure in getting to know the guests that visit us here: recognising their likes and dislikes and judging their moods helps me reach the stellar standards of service that we are known for. So, it’s always nice to hear that I’ve left a lasting impression and a review by a recent guest was especially wonderful to read: ‘Emine greeted us with a lovely, cheerful smile. I said I would like to have tea and just enjoy the atmosphere. She was most welcoming....and having understood I am of the literary variety, also recommended a local book...great job to staff member Emine!’ I was really touched and look forward to seeing her and many other book-lovers again.”
