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

We visited here for lunch on our first day in Bergen. All seating inside, no outdoor or patio. They had a very small lunch menu with nothing I really wanted. I ended up ordering off the dinner menu Chicken Chow Mein and 1 Coke. I paid approx 250kr for one person. The positive was the amount of food. I probably... More

The staff were friendly and efficient, the decor is slightly over the top chinise themed. The koi carp is a nice touch and children like to feed them. On the whole slightly expensive for a Chinese but the food was nice.
