Set menu

Had a set menu and it was well cooked and delicious, not the cheapest we've had but lovely food and well worth the money. Portions were good.

I have eaten in this beautiful restaurant before but I can't comment this time as I had a take away. I have to admit the prices are more expensive than the local Chinese but it is worth it. Ordered 4 seperate meals for my family and it is the best lemon / sweet & sour chicken I have ever tasted.... More

Visited not so long ago. The place lacks ambience having boyzone on repeat is too much. Prices of alcoholic drinks very reasonable. Service could have been better, what seems to be the manageress and delivery driver constantly shouting at one another because deliveries we're late to be delivered wasn't very welcoming or professional to say the least. The young Chinese... More

We went to Summer Palace as a group of 4 girls to celebrate my birthday. We ordered the banquet for four. The starters and the crispy duck were superb. The main courses were a little disappointing primarily due to the meat being a little tough in two of the dishes. Otherwise, all food was very good. The service was good... More

I have ordered from here for years and have always been very happy. I have ordered a takeaway tonight which has come complete covered in black hairs. I rang to ask for them to refund me and for the inconvenience send a replacement their response was 'no chance'. As a very loyal and customer I think this response is disgusting... More

We like this take away but the cooking of the meat is a bit hit and miss. The beef dishes are fine but we have been a little concerned about the chicken.

Only ever used their takeaway service but after a number of months using the summer palace I can honestly say I am impressed. The food is always hot and on time and the quality is better than many I have tried in Chester. My only gripe is that they're constantly engaged, we had an issue with our order last week... More
