Good Chinese. We enjoyed it.

Good atmosphere although beginning to need a refurbishment as some things looking tired, especially the carpet. Staff very attentive and food was well prepared and tasty. We did have slightly unsettled stomachs the next day, but would hesitate to blame the restaurant - probly a coincidence... read more

Service was fine, but interior and kitchen are both tired and stale. Certainly the worst price/quality ratio of any Chinese I have eaten. They do good business because of their location. Find somewhere else.

I went alone to eat at this restaurant because I had some time to kill, and chinese food sounded good. Because the restaurant looked empty when I arrived, I asked to be seated by a table next to the window to get a view. The waitress guided me to a table for two, which had no view at all. I... More

The food exceeded expectations and price was fair compared to the size of the meals. Menus could have been freshened up. Bathrooms was very clean and well maintained. Service was good, and they where very helpful by allowing us to take the elevator up as a member of our party had trouble getting up the stairs.

This restaurant is located on the 2nd floor over a 7 11 all hours store so from the exterior it appears less desirable, but when you get inside you will recognize quality. The menu is 9 pages Norse with English. Good variety of traditional Chinese dishes with a children's menu. The quality of the dishes we choose, duck, sweet &... 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.

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 Palace. The service... More

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.
