Wonderful surprise!

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... read 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

Summer Palace it is better than most chinese restaurants around this area but bottom line it isnt even great. Waitress was horrible it felt that she was rushing us. Food was over seasoned. Orange chicken taste like I was bitting into an orange and General Tso wasnt spicy at all (even I requested to be spicy). Both dinner were overly... More

We were looking for a local Chinese restaurant in our area since many had closed. We have been hitting all the Thai ones a lot. We found Summer Palace on Trip Advisor. Not far from our home, but down a road we never travel. We read all the reviews and noted the poor ones for Sushi. We weren't after Sushi... More

This used to be a decent place for sushi. No more. I came here recently with my daughter and really wasn't impressed. Then a few weeks later my fiancé wanted to eat here so I gave in but this will be the last time our family eats here. The spicy tuna roll was not even edible to eat. It was... More
