I found this restaurant via extensive reviews and thought I would give it a try. My chicken in a spicy sauce was indeed spicy but this was it. It lacked that authentic range of spices that you would normally get in Chinese food. Surprising, as I saw quite a few asian families there. My soup had no taste at all,... More

We headed to Regal for a birthday lunch. The service was speedy and friendly and our Jasmin tea topped up before we needed to request a top up. The food was all hot, tasty and cooked well. The only downside was that vegetable dishes didn't turn up until 40 minutes after we sat down - and after the desert dishes... More

Whenever I am in Wellington, this is a must visit Chinese restaurant. The service by the owners are excellent and I love the way the cod fish is steamed n the crispy roast pork n duck.

We visited here just after New Year for Yum Cha. It was very busy, which is indicative of the consistent popularity of this restaurant. You know exactly what you are going to get - it tastes the same as last time, which is very good. Service is rapid, lots of choices. The squid is always a family favourite. Tables turn... More

After several years away from dim sim at this restaurant it was refreshing to know that dim sim is just as good as it was when last visited 3-4 years ago. This establishment is an iconic symbol of good food sustaining it's presence in Courtenay Place for longer than 20 years. If this place were in the running for 'Survivor'... More

A very busy and popular restaurant. My kids are always begging to go to Yum Char there. Very reasonably priced too. Would highly recommend.

Went with family for Sunday lunch Yum Cha. Top tip - make a booking if you want to guarantee a sitting. There were plenty of folk being told that the restaurant was fully booked for at least the next 2 hours! And the queue was 30+ people. Food was fantastic. Lots and lots of choice and staff circulating all the... More
