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

We visited Regal last weekend for a family dinner. Friendly staff, delicious, large sized portions of food. Yummy flavours, served hot. Its a restaurant my family visit very often. I really enjoyed my meal there and would love to return.

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

The Regal Lounge has been delivering Yum Char for a long time. We were meeting folk in Courtney Place and thought the Regal would be a good place for a chow down and a chat. Bookings are essential and we requested 1130am. The Regal is looking a little banged up around the edges but I think Chinese tend to focus... More

Sunday yum char at Regal is an absolute delight - the food is really great, the staff are very friendly, and it's not too expensive. You do need to make a booking to ensure you get a table at the weekend, and a sure sign that it is good are all the Chinese families dining there. Highly recommended.

The place is always packed, especially on a weekend, so best to ring and make a booking. The maitre'd is an absolute master at seating... More

Came across this place by accident, hidden away behind a narrow doorway and up a flight of stairs...but what a find! The service was excellent and so was the food. Highly recommend! We will definitely be going back. Thanks Regal!

The staff are attentive and the dishes just keep coming! Pretty decent quality - and hot when it arrived.The premises are well furnished and there is plenty of space. Large groups will enjoy having a circular table seating around 10-12.
