“Nice ambiance, good buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Took wife for buffet dinner at this new place at refurbished old Majestic Hotel. Ample parking at RM10. The place is clean, conducive and well decorated. We like the ambiance. The buffet spread includes seafood, grilled meats, malay cuisine, Indian cuisine and little bit of chinese & western too. Overall the food is good, I can't say very good like Mosaic, MO. The desserts were quite limited but well prepared. Prompt service by the staff.

“Buffet - Food and Wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

Had a birthday lunch with my girls. We opted for the food and wine buffet.

The food selection is great. They have a lot of everything - japanese, malaysian, western, etc.
And it tasted good also!

Wasn't too happy with the wine selection. You have unlimited serving of wines - 5 whites and 5 reds to choose from. The selections were not up to standard.

So, I would suggest for you to have the lunch buffet there during weekdays. Price is reasonable. If you're not fussy with the wine, have it as well :)

“5-star meal and 4-star service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Had buffet lunch here. The buffet selection is above average and can be easily compared with Mosaic, Mandarin Oriental. There are no Chinese New Year special though, given that we visited the restaurant during the 4th day of Chinese New Year.
The service was a bit disappointing though, but I think it is because of the occupancy that day. There are quite a lot of diners and the crews looked busy and sometimes forgot to respond to our request. The ambiance was amazing though, I can almost feel that I am dining in the 1940s.
Dessert selection is top notch. We are instantly amazed by the varieties of desserts available.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone looking for a good dining experience without paying too much.

“Average Breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Stayed at Majestic Hotel for conference, breakfast included at Contango. Breakfast just average with not much variety of food, limited pastry&bread section. The best part is you can choose the type of coffee- cappuccino, mocha& latte. And the coffee bean used is nice!
