“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Wellington. I have been there many times which is a recommendation it itself. It is best later in the week when there are sufficient patrons that the kitchen just sends out a continuous stream of many different varieties of dim sum with the wait staff and you can select whatever appeals as they come by.

At quieter times you need to know which dishes you like and order from the menu, and this can be a challenge unless you know the dishes.

My only reservation about the Majestic is that the wait staff often deliver food to a neighboring table, but refuse to look round to see if anyone else needs something. You have to be assertive to catch their attention at these times.

Despite that the food is delicious, and modestly priced. A friend I and I have lunch there and sharing six dishes will cost us NZD$16 each.

“Best Yum Char!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

After going to The Grand Century for a while and having less than average service, (not bad food but CHECK YOUR BILL before you leave as it can be wrong) we decided to try something else so went & looked for one with good reviews. We arrived on a Sunday at 12.30 and even though we hadn't booked (didn't realise you could, even though we called the day before and asked if they would be open) we were seated quickly. The food arrived quickly and were constantly attended to by friendly staff! (Unlike The Grand Century!) Loved the sticky rice and pork buns. My son had deep fried chicken peices and said they were better than KFC LOL! The only negatives were we were not asked for a drinks order and when we did they brought us the wrong one but were apologetic and quick to correct. Also I noticed an $11.50 "Kitchen" item on the bill and when queried was told it was the pork belly slices - didn't mind paying as it was divine, but thought it would be prudent of them to let us know prior to accepting it as all other items were $4.50 - $6.95 approx. All in all we would definately recommend this to friends and will be going back. Paid $56.95 for three of us including tea and one lemonade. Try it you won't be disappointed!

“Best Yum-Char Dim Sum in Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is a place to be if you want to try Chinese yum-char (dim sum) which as a south china cuisine. The food is just right not too greasy or too salty and the taste was good! The restaurant also boost an authentic Chinese decoration with lots of noise on the background (people chatting. .etc..).. Please don't mistaken that the noise will be a disturbance as I found it is almost essential if you want to try it as it is part of the culture that were found back in Asia. The noise only good for the morning/brunch time but not as dinner. So please expect to quieter environment during dinner time. Food presentation and service was top and a very good chef... Recommended to everyone. Please book in advanced if you need a table during weekend.
