Worth the stop

Good chinese food for the North Bay. Still doesn't compare to San Francisco chinese food. Fast service and a little higher priced than the other lousy chinese restaurants in Novato, but worth it.

I come here several times a year when I want a quiet atmosphere in a restaurant with refined decor, good food at a reasonable price and good waitperson service.

We've been going to this restaurant since it opened, and have found it to be consistently good quality with reasonable prices. Sometimes we eat there, sometimes we take it to go, usually we go for dinner but once in a while for lunch. The service is always excellent, the atmosphere is a bit strange in that the building used to... More

Good food. Professional, prompt service. Really lovely setting...a bit elegant and good choice for entertaining guests or clients. But casual enough too where you feel comfortable. Very reasonable prices. Check it out.

We have gone to this Chinese restaurant for years. It is always excellent. I love Chinese food. My favorite is zeshuan and Hunan but the other cuisines are also good if you know what to order. The food here is excellent no mater what you order. Highly recommended.

I have lived in Novato for decades and have seen many restaurants come and go at the current location of the China Palace. This one is a "keeper." My wife and I have been there for lunch and early dinner many times and invariably we've been seated quickly, orders taken quickly, and dishes delivered quickly. The restaurant is clean, the...
