Friendly local Chinese food!

The menu has everything, for a variety of choices and price points. Sure its not a gourmet 5 star restaurant, but it definitely is a great neighborhood spot.

We read several tripadvisor reviews about how great the food was at Ko Palace and, because they were close to where we were staying, we decided to give it a try. First, the place smells, and not in a good way. It's carpeted, and it has that 'not cleaned restaurant carpet' smell. It was also very dark. Maybe they're trying... More

Ordered online. Order was ready when expected. Wife got the Almond Chicken. I got the Pork in Garlic sauce. Food was great, as always. We just moved to the far NE Heights, so the restaurant is no longer right down Menaul from our old house. Let me tell you, it's so worth the drive.

Ordered delivery, BBQ lo-mien hardly any meat and the meat that's in there is like chewing on a boot, no flavor, especially for having as much sauce as it did my noodles were swimming plus the veggies taste like they had been overcooked by a day, essentially mush... Pot-stickers severely lacking filling, It was like biting into an empty won-ton... More

I have been eating at Ko Palace for as long as I can remember. In recent years, business has slowed down due to the awful Chinese buffet near by. This is such a shame since Ko Palace is such a wonderful place to eat!! The food is delicious- BEST EVER MU SHU PORK! This is such a hidden gem! Stop... More

The best Kung Pao Chicken I have ever eaten. When in Albuquerque there's always quite a few choice's for local New Mexican food, but there are also a few delicious alternatives to the Burrito. Ko Palace just off of Menaul offers up some of the best Chinese food around. This wonderful place offers up some pretty tasty treats & an... More

We just moved to Albuquerque from Texas and we're excited to try this place... Well we should have known from the second we walked in but decided to give it a shot. My shrimp dish was under cooked and rice was over cooked... I politely explained to server that we were not going to try another dish and they had... More

A cup of zucchini (!?) some cabbage, a cup of yellow onion, boring sauce. Bad service, almost a half hour to get the food. Lady at the table next to me left as her food took eve longer. The owner was sour almost angry. I will never return.

I've been back in ABQ sine '99 and driven past Ko Palace probably 1000 times. Always wondered what the place was like, but had our favorite Chinese food in the heights and never gave it another thought. Over the past year and a half or so, we've lost our favorite and the search was on for a new place. Three... More

My family and I love Chinese food on Christmas and we were in Albuquerque on vacation so we gave this place a shot. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we had a great time at the restaurant. The one issue we had was our order of Mongolian beef was a little different than we expected but it did taste fine. Give... More
