First my girlfriend and I were seated by our waitress. The waitress threw my silverware right at my plate. The restaurant was very dirty. The shelves behind us had a tun of dust on them.The food was by far the worst we ever had. There was no flavor in almost all the food we tried. The beef terrioki was the... More

Ordered Take-Out. Pork Lo Mein. Flat noodles w/veg's and very tough pork. Consistancy and taste like it had been cooked a week earlier and warmed up ... mushy consistancy. War Shel Gai...extremely tough, shoe-leather consistancy pork in a very tasty dark sauce w/veg's. Sliced breaded chicken toping...chicken was done very well and tasty. However, pork in sauce/veg's was unedible. We've... More

Visited midweek for late lunch, luckily found a parking spot right in front, each ordered a lunch plate, boneless ribs were great, not fatty, just how I like them! Egg rolls not as good as my wife remembers them, overall not bad will visit again

This is one of the best Chinese Restaurants around. Great food and average prices. They have the best Fried Rice in the Area. Their Pork Lo Mein, Pork Chop Suey, Egg foo yong and Lobster Sauce are the best around hands down....Always delicious and fresh. My Family has been going there for the past 40 years and still to this... More

Have been going to the China Palace for years! Always consistent quality of the food and drinks . Our waitress ( usually) Kathy is courteous and attentive. Always quick to bring the drinks and clear empty glasses. Check in frequently during the meal to see how everything is and if we need refills. The only negative that we have is... More

I have been going to China Palace for over 30 years. The quality has been hit and miss but for the past few years it was not to bad. Last night I ordered over 50 dollars worth of take out early in the evening. When I got it home I couldn't believe how horrible it was. The ribs, General Tsos... More

This place has been in business since probably before I was born. The remodel of the place is really nice! I still remember the old decor. The food is amazing as always. This is what... More

Good food at a reasonable price. The staff is always friendly and you get quick service. This is a busy restaurant right in the center of Rochester.

Aweful, owner is rude. Chicken was raw and food tasted like dish soap. Owner Stella told me I was lying and did not know what I was talking about. Will never go back for the risk of getting food poising from uncooked or contaminated food

I base a Chinese restaurant a lot by the quality of their lo-mein. China Palace does not make the cut. They use noodles more like fettucine than spaghetti, and it is swimming in soy sauce! My tongue literally hurt after eating a few bites tonight. I also had an egg roll and some wonton soup. The egg roll was pretty... More
