Average Food, Regal Setting

The food was OK, simply OK. The prices are high and what you are paying for is the decor, the view, and the atmosphere. It's like a Chinese palace inside and out, but the food is certainly not regal.

Ok I have to admit I have a weak spot for it's look, both the exterior and the interioir but I love this place. Chinese fondue is recomended for a somewhat different eating out experience.

The food was really good but the plates were cold and the food got cold quite quickly. Service was slow but it was exceptionally busy on the night we were at the restaurant. Waiter was very friendly and helpful.

I was here 3 times! The crispy noodles are delicios! Even if the prices are a little bit high, you can have a full chinese experience. The restaurant is very well decorated and the food is good.

The Sea Palace looks fab from the outside and inside and we had a window seat facing the harbour. Unfortunately it failed to live up to our initial expectations. There was a wait of an hour as only the bottom floor was open. The drinks and starter came very quickly and the pork dumplings/calamari was delicious. Unfortunately it took over... More
