The Majestic Hotel is one of the quintessential luxury boutique hotels in KL, a magnificent 82-year-old architectural treasure centrally located in heart of the city, opposite the striking old Moorish style railway station.
Entering its all-day buffet dining restaurant located in the Tower Wing, Contango, we were greeted warmly by the staff who then led us into the luxuriously designed contemporary restaurant that can fit up to 250 people.
Love the romantic setting with some natural light from the glass window!
Featuring an open kitchen interactive dining concept, the restaurant serves over a hundred varieties of food daily. The cuisine, freshly prepared to order, ranges from Western with a pizza oven and Churassco Grill to Chinese, Japanese, Malay and Thai.
Love the crispy, lightly sweet Roti Pisang layered with thinly sliced banana, from one of the live cooking stations.
Apart from grilled chicken, beef steak, varieties of salad and cold cuts which are readily served on the buffet line, pasta and pizza are prepared a la minute up to your personal preference.
Fresh Seafood On Ice: Clams, Mussels, Prawns
Salads and Cold Cuts
Served chilled and perfectly marinated!
Wild Mushroom Cream Soup topped with Walnuts
Assorted Cheese and Biscuits
Japanese cuisine has always been my favourite among all choices on a buffet line, as long as they serve delicious cold appetizers and fresh, high-quality sashimi. Of course, the top notch quality sashimi here do not disappoint me with their wonderful, juicy freshness.
Fresh Sashimi on Ice: Tuna, Salmon, Butterfish, Octopus
Cold Salad: Marinated Seaweed and Japanese Baby Octopus (Recommended!)
Hot and Cold Cha Soba
BEVERAGES & WINE
Unlike many buffets I've tried, Contango serves their cakes and pastries inside the chiller to preserve its freshness for the best enjoyment. I saw lots of colorful macarons there too, but they are all gone before I manage to grab one.
Delectable Pastries, Financiers, Tarts and Cakes
Spot the glittery pink heart and red lip-shaped chocolate! Both are exclusively crafted by the in-house cafe. Coated with chocolate, it is filled with unique milky flavour that satisfies the sweet tooth without being overcloying at all.
The cakes look interesting, but my favourite vote goes to the blueberry cheese cake,
which melts perfectly in the mouth with bits of tangy berries.
My Childhood Favourite: Cotton Candy
Back to my addiction for Japanese dessert, green tea and black sesame ice creams here taste 'original' with extra creamy texture. I love the bitter taste of green tea just like those served in authentic Japanese restaurant.
Coffee and Chocolate Ice Creams topped with jellybeans and chocolate rice
Daily buffet dinner at Contango is priced at RM98.00++ per person.
1. No complaints about the freshness, portion and quality of the food. The buffet table is consistently replenished and updated with new items.
2. The service here is excellent--- Attentive and informative staff, consistent clearing of plates and refilling drinks.
3. The ambiance here is ideal for romantic dinner dates, corporate functions and special occasions. Revisit? Definitely a YES!
