We have been coming since Contango first opened, and we're have noticed that the food variety seems to have been reduced. We're feel that it's not the same as it used to be.

Food was average and the rice are not cooked properly and the Centre kitchen assistances are not very hygienic. I booked this for my mother’s birthday but staff did not even asked for any celebration and I have been to other five star
Hotels and with the remarks I put they will have a small celebration. Ambience is good but I will not return for another dining

Serve pretty great food however if the food was refill at a more prompt too rate will be nice. Appreciate the dessert bar is in a secluded glass container and you would need to get assistance before you can reach out for your desserts, yet that is if you have enough manpower to hover around the dessert bar for people to serve your needs

Definitely one of the best dinner buffets in KL. Really good range of western and Asian dishes as well as some Malaysian specialities. Most food is continually refreshed or made to order. Good range of wines or beer if you choose to pay more for free flow alcohol too.

I love the cozy and comfortable ambiance. Service was friendly and attentive. Wines are affordable. Wide selection of desserts. Best is to have more selection on beef steaks / roasted lamb.

Not much varieties. Expecting international buffet lines, nothing near to standards, though went during holiday season.

Been here before about five months ago but compared to the previous visit, the food and surroundings this time around seems to be average or not much difference from the last visit.

It would be good if the ventilation can be improved because the aroma of cooked food are quite strong.

Food tasted okay. Nothing great. No “WOW!”. Waiters were not attentive, - you have to ask them to clear the plates, and they (all of them) also looked like they rather be somewhere else. Regretted the decision to try Contango and not stick to the tried and tested Hilton/Meridian. ☹️

First time here & I had very high expectation on the menus but frustrated. The only thing I enjoyed was the dessert.

My friends n I had a wonderful time. The seating was comfortable n had privacy. The food quality and variety was simply awesome. I didn't even get to try all of the spread. It's certainly value for money and I will surely return to savour it more in 2020.♥️

Overall was good experience, but still need improvement on the car parking availability as I was 'so lucky' to have dinner there at the same time there was also other function (company annual dinner) that definitely required many parking lots :)

Wide choices for all age group! The japanese section in particular was my favorite. Generous salmon all around. The bottomless juices is also a plus! Desserts are of a different level; decadent and sooo delicious.

Waiter does not understand well on common request which we spoken in English.
Chef did not ask on the spicy level and made the spaghetti with too much of chilly. Aglio olio shld have combination of garlic and chilly fragrant instead.
Cold dishes should add more variety.
Was satisfied and amazed with dessert department as they have many choices w good quality, clean, and well managed.
Briyani rice and pizza was good.

We were placed right at the end corner of the dining area only because we were only 4 instead of 5 that we were able to sit a bit closer!!! Then I was getting a coffee at the barista but the guy there just ignored me in preference to a staff and didn’t even addressed me. Only because the female staff told him I have been standing there and waiting for a latte that he decided to make it for me.

Price is reasonable for the buffet spread. To Sushi lovers, dessert lovers and coffee lovers, this is the right buffet for you.
Delicious and nice ambience.

Variety of food, provided 3 food center with different type of food, multi choice and avoid customer queue up. Table arrangement is nice. Good staff and support. Birthday wishes with cake and candle also can get free and supported by your staff. Excellent

The food was not too bad. Few things to take note, the sashimi has bones in it, yes, you read right, they didn’t slice the salmon properly, hence there were bones. The roast beef was a bit tough and chewy.

The paella was good, the poached prawns fresh and desserts were yummy.

Service could have been better. Service staff was not friendly as well, the guy making coffee was so dissatisfied when I asked for tea.

Overall, I am not exactly rushing back to this place for the food or the service.

Its a nice place to dine, but service replisment and varienties have reduced and slow.
Please inprovise your food replishment as most of the time customers have to wait.
Any quality and array has gone done compared to last year...Majestic Hotel the Buffet lunch / dinner a boast full talk but for now its not meeting the standard requirements.

Thank you,

There was a decent variety and range of the types of food, and taste-wise everything was good. Some of the sashimi could have been fresher. The highlights are the desserts. The ambiance and setting is very classy and quiet. Overall great value.

Went there for a birthday occassion so I requested a slice of birthday cake from the staff to surprise my partner. But the staff keep passing me to other staff and the other staff passing me to other staff and in the end I did not get the birthday cake as per requested. So dissapointed.

Quality of food and service has dropped significantly compared to my last visit a year or 2 ago. It is no longer value for money and for the type and quality of food served, one could easily get more or better ones outside. Freshness of ingredients were also an issue. Unless they buck up, I will not even think of returning.

It's always a good choice to go for the dinner buffet at Majestic Hotel KL. There's a big variety of delicious high quality food for every taste and the service is outstanding. However, it seems that the buffet is a little better at the weekends than during the weekdays. But anyhow it's great!

We are extremely disappointed with our experience in Contango this time. We used to be a regular patron of this restaurant and after last sunday, it was very disappointing that the quality of food and services in contango dropped so badly. When we arrive at Contango at 12.30pm, most food were gone and we do not have anything to eat. The tempura station was empty most of the time, the cook were so reluctant to refill the food. Overall staffs were rude, inattentive and it is very disappointing to have such bad services from Majestic. Honestly we will not return anymore and judging from how Contango standard had dropped so badly, this place will not be in business for long. Very sad for a 5 stars hotel! Shame on you Contango.
