We visited this restaurant last night after reading the generally positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Where do I start with this truly awful restaurant. The location and frontage is poor, the service feels rushed, the staff are incredibly young and I assume therefore inexperienced and finally the actual food is, well, almost beyond believe in its paucity. We ordered the set... More

This is best chinese food around. Excellent food and service. The decor is a little on the quirky side but dont let that put you off, everything else is top quality.

Very convenient after the rugby on a Sunday, or anytime. Seems to be open most times we go there. This time it was before 5pm on a Sunday when most other places do not open until 7pm. Place is by Helen Glover post box behind weigh bridge and does not look too inviting from outside. But once you step over... More

The Sea Palace is my first choice for eating Chinese out. Great food, fresh ingredients and excellent friendly staff. Prices are very reasonable too.

We were a bit unsure because of the outside, especially as it was for a special birthday meal, but it was one of the nicest meals we have eaten in a Chinese restaurant. The only other one that compared was in Paris!

Almost didn't go in due to exterior appearance, it certainly needs a coat of paint. But reviews were good so we did. Picked the set menu and weren't disappointed, lovely food. Try it!

When I heard of Sea Palace, my six sense tell me that the seafood is absolutely awesome. The lobster is fresh and I can't stop it though I'm full. I will definitely come back to Sea Palace when I visit Penzance :)
