Excellent service

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!

I’ve never been to China so I can’t say how authentic it is, but from what I’m told European Chinese restaurants aren’t really close to that. If that’s true this one is no exception. All the basics, duck, chicken, beef, bamboo sprouts, soy, rice etc. It tasted like it was expected, or even supposed to, and I left happy enough.... More

This is yet another time when I would have liked a "Good" classification between "Average" and "Very good". The food is OK Chinese-as-it-is-prepared-for-Northern-Eurpoeans, so it may not seem very authentic for people looking for "real" Chinese food - we were for instance given knives and forks rather than chopsticks. But it is a nice place to go out with a... More

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
