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

Love it here! I visit the restaurant regularly and we use the take-away service too, and the Summer Palace never disappoints. Quality of food and service has never let us down, and I've been using this place for several years. The range of dishes on the menu is quite staggering. Décor perhaps a little jaded and lighting could do with... More

Having recently visited Yuatcha Londons Michelin starred restaurant it made us realise how excellent the food in the Summer Palace is, in comparison to Yuatcha and other... More

We had booked a table and were seated without having to wait. Our order was taken promptly and we were served our drinks and prawn crackers quickly. After that, the service was not as good. There were long delays between the courses of our banquet and we waited a long time between the first main course being served and the... More

Food and wine are reasonably priced A great venue for a special occasion, a mid-week supper or a take away at home. The true measure of quality is return business - how long have we... More

On a very windy night, i decided to treat my wife to a night staying in with the lights dimmed and some relaxation. After reading some great looking reviews we were left severely disappointed by Summer Palace. It took an hour to arrive after initially being told 15-20 minutes. And when it arrived the food was barely warm - to... More

liked the food - but be careful if you want to eat after a day on the town as it closes at lunch and does not open till 5.30 - bit of a pain with a good reputation - in a tourist town stay open all day please
