Original Chinese

Food is really excellent, but prices are not high. Restaurant is located in the city center. The service is fast, waiters are. Portions are big enough, even for hungry tourists.

First thing you notice as you go in is the amazing decoration they've done to that place, absolutely fantastic. Very friendly service, the food we ordered arrived pretty quick and was pretty darn delicious. For the most part of the menu, the price is comparable to any other restaurant except for a few special plates that were a bit overpriced.... More

The food was ok. We ordered spring rolls and it was very greasy. You could definitely taste the heavy oil. Our main meal sweet and sour chicken with rice, it was ok. Would I revisit, probably.

Food is OK considering I am from Asia so I know real asian food should taste like. Place is clean, the owner is nice and speak english quite well. View to the harbour/fish market is also an added value for eating here.

The restaurant is located in the city center. The decor is nicely done in authentic chinese style with a large fountain in the center of the restaurant. The food was good with a lot of variety. Overall a good place with nice ambience.

We really enjoyed our dinner at China Palace in Bergen on 25th Aug. 2014 …. Young charming lady Charlotte Hui is the owner managing the restaurant received us with warm welcome; she assisted us in choosing the dishes, including delicious meal for the Vegetarians. Portions are quite large & can be easily shared making the cost per head reasonable; the... More

My partner and I were in Bergen recently and looking for an evening meal. We decided on the China Palace as we felt like a Chinese meal and it was close to our hotel. Bad mistake, we were totally disappointed. We found the food to be bland with no flavour what so ever and the rice was quite “gluggy”. When... More

Positively the absolute worst chinese food both of us had in our entire life. Corn starch sauce on bland food. Two wonton soups, two regular dishes, a bowlnof plain rice and a beer for $100 and it was plain awful. The steamed rice was Ok!!

Enjoyed our dinner….large portions and the mains can easily be shared…but the highlight was the service..!!! Oscar and Agneta were welcoming, positive and very professional. Did not feel we were in Norway…..but then the staff were not really Norwegian…!!! No comments on the prices…but everything in Bergen…or Norway for that matter is expensive. But the difference here is the warm... More
