Shelter from the rain ... At a price

When in Bergen for any length of time, one can develop a longing for spicy Eastern cooking! I first ate at the China Palace nine years ago. On our latest trip in early May 2015 we were caught one morning in the freezing rain and decided to take shelter and have an early lunch at the China... read more

Just finished my take-away, sweet & sour, pork meal. Brought it to my hotel room and threw away half of it. For 137,- Norwegian kroner, I would probably just pay someone to pour sweet chill sauce in my mouth, rather than eating here again.

This is an average run of the mill Chinese restaurant, conveniently located in downtown Bergen. Mediocre soup (not well heated) and decent main courses. Wouldn't bother returning though.

We got seated immediately and by the window. This place is on the first floor (second floor in norway) that keeps it away from the busy street below. The food was ok. Not the best chinese ive had but the service and atmosphere made up for it.

Restaurant upstairs in the main streets of Bergen. The food is mediocre, bordering on processed foods. No creativity and no delicacy. Price very very high compared to quality. The only advantage is the opening on Sunday evening. Avoid this.

This place has gone down over the last few years. Inexperienced waiters and questionable food. Stay away!

I ate dinner here on a Sunday night and the place was packed. The place itself is decked out to look very 'Chinese', and there is even a water feature in the centre of the restaurant. The food itself was very poor. The sauces on the dishes were very gloopy and oily. The chips tasted as if they had been... More

We were very hungry after a long business meeting and decided to go out for some dinner. Luckily the weather was not the best so we did not bother walking further and went into China Palace. We received a table immediately and after ordering food, the dinner came to our table after just 10-15 minutes. We got plenty of food... More

I've been to this restaurant several times, and I keep coming back. The place looks very nice and typical Chinese, at least how I picture it :-) The staff is friendly, the food is yummy and cheap! A meal for 2 was under 340NOK so this is cheap for Norway. I'll be back!
