Best location and very good food

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... read 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

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.
