This restaurant has been a favorite of my wife and mine for several years. They specialize in dim sum on Saturday and Sunday. The food is always consistently delicious and fresh. The restaurant is always very busy and if you arrive after 11:45 on Saturday or Sunday morning, expect a wait to be seated. The restaurant regularly is the venue... More

China Palace Restaurant is one of my favorite place to dine. I celebrated my 77th birthday recently with my family and everyone had good time. My growing grandchildren enjoyed two orders of Peking roast duck, among several courses of menu. My husband and I are regulars to this friendly place and we like the food, good service and clean place.... More

This place is always packed. We've come here several times and love their China Palace fried rice. Believe it or not you can mess up fried rice but here it is consistently good. Our waiters have always been nice and attentive. The portions are pretty big and the food is always tasty.

It closes fairly early 8:30 to 9:00 pm and we arrived late ie 8:00. It was not a problem , the waiter was friendly and helpful. I was hungry and ordered a medium size hot and sour soup. The waiter respectfully suggested small was enough for one person, he was certainly right. A small bowl was more than enough for... More

Recently I planned a dinner for a group of 50 to 60 people at China Palace and I vowed they would not be my first choice for a large group dinner again. I would guess if you spoke Chinese it could be a little easier. I found talking with the owner and the staff, when the owner was not there,... More

Title says it all basically. It is a shame that service is so lacking as food is usually really good. Would recommend you not go between 1:30 pm and 3:00 pm however as, if lunch business was slow, food quality suffers. Take out available and sometimes the best way to go.
