I've eaten a lot of Chinese food in my life, but this was one of the best Chinese meals that I ever ate. We kind of stumbled onto Rainbow Palace by accident and I am so glad that we did! It's an elegant restaurant in a rather bland strip mall. Once inside you feel a sense of a very classy... More

Did not enjoy this second visit as the First one. I requested a good table upon reserving and they gave me the worst one, against a wall. The waiter pushed for the most expensive plates and excessive amounts. The lamb chops where only so- so. Much to expensive for the aggregate quality. I noticed a change for the worse since... More

Without question one of the 10 best Chinese restaurants I've been to in the US. For New Yorkers, the service and delicious (but updated) classics will evoke comparisons with Shun Lee Palace and Mr Chow. Not to be missed are the shrimp and lobster dumplings or the Orange Beef. The fried rice is a transcendent mix of fluffy deliciousness totally... More

You will be surprised once you step into the Rainbow Palace as the plain outside is no indication of the exquisite service you will receive. You will be made to feel very special and pampered by the staff. The real star of the show is the food. I often have Chinese in NYC and Rainbow Palace has them all beat.... More

once of the best Asian food experiences outside of NYC. This is not your typical Chinese restaurant. It wreaks of class, yet attire can be jeans. Servers wear tuxedo's and are attentive, polite, courteous and knowledgeable. He foods were mouth watering. Nothing can be faulted. The only caveat is the cost. This is a very pricey establishment. Wine and dinner... More

This restaurant has a very low profile, cinder block business building in a small strip mall. Do not be fooled! this is the 'A' list of Asian cuisine. the interior is still Florida- Mauve tones with contemporary layout- Lot's of blue and white export porcelain surrounding you. Very low light. The service is superior. you will feel gently and graciously... More

Very pleasantly surprised by this Fort Lauderdale Chinese restaurant. Good luxurious ambiance and very good service. The food is the best Chinese I have had in the Miami area ever. I recommend it. Does not however have valet parking which is a minus.

We have taken food to go many times from here and the order has always been accurate and very good. A bit different than your normal Asian take out in a very good way. Everything we have had has been tasty, well cooked and fresh.
