This is my second visit to this restaurant and it is amazing. The food is excellent, variety of plates is perfect. You can eat a special Chinese food that you won't fine anywhere else. This is not a typical Chinese restaurant. It is a gourmet Chinese place. Highly recommended!!

Probably the fanciest Chinese restaurant that I have eaten at yet worth every dollar. The waiters are in Tuxedo and the interior is very posh. With all of that, the food is excellent. Our waiter has been with the restaurant for almost 20 years and guided us through the specials, the restaurant's signature dishes, and all the items on the... More

As a monthly visitor to Fort Lauderdale I am shocked I have not found this gem before. Very good friends took me and I shall be back at the very next opportunity. Besides the food being exceptional, Kenny and his staff were so hospitable. But it is the food that you will go for, we mixed up a few starters... More

This restaurant came highly recommended and didn't disappoint, well, except for the fact that they didn't have any duck available which is very strange for a Chinese restaurant! Once I got over shock and craving for duck, I found that there are other items on the menu which were also delicious. Service throughout was very good and attentive and the... More

We have driven by for many years. Chinese food is America is frequently mediocre with msg, salt, fat and cannot compare to other great choices like Thai or Japanese. EXCEPT for Rainbow Palace. From the moment you walk in, it's a "wow" - a wall full of awards, year after year. Once dining, you'll know they are well deserved. I'll... More

Normally after a very long trip with layovers (very long for me is anything longer than instantly) my appetite has trouble kicking for a while. Luckily, upon my arrival to Fort Lauderdale, I was taken to the Rainbow Palace. The food here was spectacular. But it was far better because of the service we experienced. The waitress suggested almost everything... More

Not a chain but an authentic Chinese restaurant that is elegant and well staffed. The lobster dumplings and scallops grand marnier.... Make you count the days to come back

While with friends for a business lunch, I was taken to this restaurant. WOW, great selection, good presentation, first class services, like a 5 star restaurant, not usual with Chinese food, sorry no offence to any one. The value was good too and I look forward to returning.

i frequent this place once or twice a year. The food is great and the chef has a unique flair and style that you dont get from other restaurants in the area. Yes, it is pricey, but it not unreasonable. This is not a fast food joint and the ambiance when you walk in and atmosphere is excellent. I will... More
