Very Good for Takeout

Our stand-by Chinese restaurant wasn't open until 4:00 PM on Sunday, so we opted for Summer Palace, having had a delightful dining experience previously. It's a bit pricey; but, service is terrific; and, the selection is extensive; and, well-executed. I had the Peking Duck, which proved to be... read more

I come here once or twice a week for lunch. For$5.45 I get a combo platter with an eggroll and fortune cookie. The staff is very friendly and the place is always clean.You will spent more one any fast food and never the same food quality.

We have some neighbors that absolutely love Summer Palace; but, we've had our go-to Chinese for delivery; and, never ventured out. However, my daughter, my wife and I were in the mood to go out to experience nothing we'd had before. We are sure glad we did, because Summer Palace IMPRESSES! First, it's a small place, with large booths; but,... More

We have been searching for a great Chinese restaurant in the East Orlando area for over 17 months and have finally found one! There are lots of Chinese restaurants in the area, but we find that they don't serve authentic meals or they are too bland. We ordered Chicken three styles and Imperial Beef which is fried beef strips with... More

I am new to Orlando, and a coworker who also lives in the Waterford area recommended this place for good Chinese. The food is excellent, service is very good, and portions are large. Overall a very good Chinese food joint.

We had not been to Summer Palace in about 2 years. It "was" one of our favorite Chinese food restaurants. I remember the pork fried rice I ordered then, was not as good as I had remembered from previous visits and at that time, I thought, they aren't using freshly cooked pork but rather some type of precooked pork. So... More

I often visit this restaurant when I'm in the mood for Chinese food, or when I have visitors from out of town. In an area where most restaurants cut quality to provide cheap food to college students, Summer Palace stands out. I've tried many things on their menu, but my favorite dish remains General Tso's chicken. The food is good... More

Local friends picked the restaurant as it's one of their favorites. Nothing fancy and fairly small, the servers were friendly and efficient. We were a party eight and everything went smoothly with multiple courses of soups, appetizers, entrees and some having their All You Can Eat Sushi. Hot and Sour soup was spicy, flavorful and better than most you find... More

I love this place. It is my favorite Chinese restaurant. I have been here a couple of time and always have the best experience. I love Mongolian beef and krab Rangoon.
