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.

The restaurant is under-staff especially during the busy weekends, otherwise all is well.

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.

I have notice that the varieties has become lesser and the food is not being filled if its finishes. Desserts need to be improved.

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.

Excellent service and a very pleasant evening. The only thing I would improve is perhaps have a live band in there to build the ambience a little more. But certainly we will will be returning soon.

Thanks

I thought overall everything was great. However one area I think could be improved on is perhaps to provide a menu of roughly what types of food would be served. I went the other day with a guest who was looking forward to eating some roast lamb or beef but was told later that those are only served on Fridays or weekends. Had I known, I would have made the booking on those days instead. But perfect service and food options overall.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The food was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Service was well-timed and very friendly. Overall im satisfied.

Most of the time we take our guests to Contango but this time it was a weekday. Regret not able to be served with fresh prawns from the salad section. We raved over this item to our guests and they were rather disappointed, not able to find any. Overall, the rest of the spread was good.

I've been here twice, both are pleasant! Easy reservation, they gave the table that i requested. All staffs are helpful, food spread are delicious. 5 stars for sashimi! They have grilled salmon for those who prefer cooked. They also have kambing bakar on our 2nd visit.Good that the foods are not exactly the same everytime. And love the birthday surprise for my dad! Thankyou!

Overall, as far as I remembered the food here has always been a top notch quality. Especially the desserts are one of the best I have ever tasted. The variety is good. I do enjoy the chinese and indian dishes as well
Very flavourful. However, I would have given it 5 stars if they had served grilled salmon head. They used to when I frequent Contango last few years. Please consider bringing the dish back, my husband and I loved the salmon very much!!

Food station is well done with clear signage. Easier for customers to look for.
Thanks for the surprise anniversary cake, not aware there is, if know that surely will east lesser and wait for the cake.
Hopefully can dine in again (dinner) but maybe can get some discounted price for re-visit customer? :-)

Generally good lunch buffet, especially the Japanese food variety, and the roasted lamb.
However, a few things were disappointing and hopefully will be improved:
1. Santan/coconut milk served for the cendul dessert was not fresh, made it unpalatable
2. Choice of vegetarian/vegan food was almost nil, except for salad and vegetables.
3. Local Malay and Indian cuisines were limited

Went Contango on Hari Raya for my birthday celebration. They serve wide range of food variety, fresh sashimi and delicious orange chocolate cake that makes my day. Last but not least the Clam that I had was impressive, taste like tomyam but it is so rich and tasty. Definitely going to pay a visit again in real soon.

I booked through Open Table. I rang up Contango to confirm my reservation. Contango confirmed. I was sent an email confirmation notice from Open Table thereafter. I responded to confirm the reservation. I arrived at Contango on the day of reservation and was told that my booking had been given away to someone else because I did not pick up my phone when they called me to confirm the booking the day before - I don't pick up numbers I don't know and they could have easily left a voice message or sent an Whatsapp if they really needed the fourth confirmation. So I'm like, huh? How many times and in how many ways do I need to confirm a booking???? Luckily however Contango was able to accommodate and set up another table for my party.

I loved the roast lamb with the cooked herbs and vegetables. I requested for the salmon fish head with teriyaki sauce and the chef was kind enough to cook it. It was cooked just right. The coconut ice cream and chocolate cakes were great. Unfortunately they don't have the lava cake which I enjoyed a lot on my last visit.

The only thing I had an issue with was the table allocation. I was early and not many tables were filled. The "seating manager" gave me a table near the entrance of the restaurant which is quite isolated from the buffet and had no natural lighting. I asked for a table near the window and he said that the tables were filled. As I went around, i saw that the tables had no reservation sign or names on it.

Later on when my sister arrived, she talked to the seating manager for a good 15 minutes before he relented and moved us to a table near the window. Later on, as I walked around, I saw that our original table was unfilled and there were quite a few empty tables. So, did the seating manager seat us somewhere undesirable because we were not dressed well-to-do enough or some other obscure reason? It definitely tainted my experience there.
