Came here with a group of 5. Ordered a range of Dim Sums, and most of the food is of a very high quality. They have a good range of traditional and classic dim sums, and of course some contemporary ones as well.

Classic dishes are like Scallop Dumpling (Dai Ji Gao), Prawn Dumplings (Har Gao) Pork and Prawn Dumplings (Siew Mai). Contemporary dishes are like Durian Mochi which I LOVE!

The only disappointment we had was the Siew Mai. It was just way too fatty. Siew Mai is a mixed of Mince Pork, Prawns, Dried Shitake and small dices of Pork Fat. That day, the Siew Mai had more Fat than meat, thus making it really difficult to swallow. But other than that, everything was great.

Service is fast and I'm rather impatient so it works out really well for me. I requested to be seated near the entrance of the kitchen thus, getting first pick of the dishes. Haha! But service has to be fast because we were given only 1.5 hours to eat, before they had to turnover the table for the next seating.

Personally, I'd rather have service that is a little faster, than to have one that would make you wait an hour for a dish to arrive.

I'm a big guy, and I ate so much that I went into a food coma, and the bill was less than $30 per person. Great Value!

Experienced the best in welly! Had both dim sim and dinner several times and never disappointed. Value for money authentic Cantonese cuisine cooked to perfection every time. Being a bit of a foodie who has eaten extensively I' m impressed welly has a restaurant of such calibre.

Three of us went on a Saturday night. The service was slow. I ordered sweet and sour pork with rice. It arrived and looked really nice. However it was basically a plate of gristle. It wasn't a good cut of meat that's for sure. I had spit out most of it as it was like trying to chew a mouthful of elastic bands. Other two people in the group meals were good though. Mine was just awful.

I have been going to yum cha at Majestic on average, once every 2 months for the past 3 years.
Not only is the food of high quality but the staff are friendly and are not afraid to smile - which is where some of the other yum cha restaurants are failing.
The food is always consistent and the decor is modern traditional. The only drawback would be it is not as large in area as some of the others. If you were organising a large group, they have only about 3 round tables that would comfortably only seat 8 each. [Though they may have more round tops put away and may be able to convert the other tables perhaps?]
Majestic is well worth a visit and I recommend it highly.

The food here right across the board is delicious and well presented. Good portion and sizes and great flavours. The Szechuan chicken and half roasted duck deserve a special mention. In fact the duck was so good we ended up getting another half. Good wine selection and a real bonus of being easy to have little ones eat with you. Relaxing atmosphere - Will be back soon for more duck.
