“Yum cha”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We love our Chinese yum cha and occasional dinner.Regal for yum cha is always crazy busy on weekends so reservation is a must but you still have to be prepared to wait a few minutes to be seated.Despite of this,it is worth it for the food which is consistent in taste and quality and they are accommodating to get whenever we ask for something they haven't got out on the round yet.
Check it out.

“Regal Restaurant- The best Yum Char in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

This restaurant is always packed for Yum char on weekends. It pays to book or you will land up standing in the queue. The Yum Char here is pretty authentic and certainly the best that we have tried of all of the restaurants in Wellington. Their prices are pretty reasonable.

“Great authentic Chinese cuisine and best Yumcha in Welly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

The service is fast and efficient despite being very busy almost all the time. Best Siumai in Welly I reckon. The choices are great. Very well worth your money. Highly recommended to have a reservation especially on the weekends as the place can be jam packed with loyal patrons. Definitely a must for those Yumcha fanatics. Great location too in Courtney Place, up the stairs. Highly recommended for Chinese cuisine lovers.

“Best Yum Char Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We were taken to Regal Restaurant for Yum Char and were told by family it was the best in Wellington. They were certainly right. Plate after plate of super tasty food and really good service. Pity we don't have anywhere this great in Auckland. Can't wait to visit Wellington again for a fantastic yum char fix.

“Best Yum Cha in Wellington”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

I love going here for Yum Cha- it's always good. There's a wide range of dishes and it is usually packed - which is a good sign! The service is quick and the tea gets replenished regularly. Must be time to go back..
