We had a variety of dumplings - prawn, prawn and coriander, seafood and duck and a fried pork and wood ear mushroom... More

You know it's good when 12 of you go for yum cha and even the vegetarians leave happy (and all for under $20 each). The Majestic is one of the best Wellington yum cha venues, with a good range of options. We ordered off the menu for the vege options, otherwise you wouldn't get enough options coming by.

Haven't been to Majestic in years but was very impressed. Food came out swiftly & plenty of variety. As we had our kids there, selected a little more dessert than normal but next time would like to try more variety. Will definitely be back. Kids enjoyed it too, said they had the best sesame balls! Nice egg tarts too.

Yum Char was tasty enough but the range was not huge (e.g. didn't see any steamed pork buns). Service and atmosphere was ok also.

This is the best place for Dim Sim. It offers a wide range of great Yum Cha cuisine at Lunch time. You need to make a booking if you wish to eat here on a weekend. Some of yummy dishes are Dim Sim, BBQ pork/vegetarian rice noodle, black bean pork spare ribs, egg tart, chicken wings, and many more. You... More

We walked in without a booking on a Monday 12 noon and end up to wait for 20min. The food is very nice and lots of different dishes to choose from.

Great food with a variety of delicious plates. I particularly like the scallop and coriander steamed dumplings and also prawn and chives. Delicious. Service is quick and friendly. Kids loved the squid and deep fried chicken nibbles. Been many times and always good. Was great to take our German family to something different.
