Delicious Buffet

There were many selections to choose from on the hot buffet line. Many Chinese meat dishes including chicken, beef, and pork. The vegetables were cooked just right and again there was a wide selection. Many dessert selections rounded out our evening. The wait staff was friendly and helpful.

We love going to the Red Palace. The variety of hot food is kept fresh even during the afternoon hours when business is slower. We enjoy getting the things we especially enjoy. The egg rolls are a favorite, along with tempura fried onion rings, broccoli, and mushrooms. The sausages are not exactly oriental but are another favorite. Service is always... More

Extensive buffet that is always kept fresh. Best buffet in Roanoke. The servers are also very attentive and the area is always clean. Food is even kept fresh during the slow times.

We haven't eaten at Red Palace in quite some time so we took our grandkids there last night, Food quality has decreased dramatically since last visit. Also , some foods looked like it had been on the steam table too long.

Nice atmosphere and food was decent for a buffet. Some food on the buffet was hot and fresh and some items had been sitting for awhile

We arrived just prior to closing but were welcomed inside. The buffet had closed so we ordered from the menu. We got complimentary crab legs (probably from the buffet) and the food was very good and the portions large. The service couldn't have been better.

The Red Palace has an extensive Chinese Buffet. The food was very nicely pesented and was constantly being replenished. You can't go wrong eating here and it was a short walk from the Best Western Hotel we stayed at.

What can you say about a Chinese buffet? We were staying at the motel across the street and needed a quick choice for a meal. We didn't know it was buffet only until we were seated and were a bit disappointed by not having a menu choice. But we stayed. The place is very new & clean and the staff... More

This place has a good variety for a fair price. The service was excellent, and friendly. The food was hot and fresh at all times. There's a little something for everyone. Overall a good buffet.

I've been there once only. Compare to other Asian buffets in town, this one is the worst. It doesnt look clean. Food looks disgusting. Everything seems to be fried, which makes me believe the food isn't actually fresh. The only things I ate was a very small amout of rice with some sauted vegetables. We were charged around 20 USD...
