My wife and I come here regularly, and have been for the last 3 years. We stumbled upon Summer Palace on our first night in the area and we have been so glad we did ever since. The food is fantastic and the portion sizes epic. We've never had a bad meal. When you do go, make sure you try... More

I've had a couple of birthday parties ands special meals here too and the owners always make us feel very welcome! However, we ordered a family takeaway last weekend, and were given a 60 min delivery time. Unfortunately... More

As I fan of Chinese food, I have sampled many restaurants, and summer palace rivals even the best restaurants in Manchester! The value for money was unreal, we left with a bag full of food, and the service was top quality. We had a set meal for 5 people and four drinks each, we couldn't believe our eyes when the... More

Top food even as a take away but the real treat is if you get chance to eat in. Piping hot good quality and fresh ingredients. The salt and pepper king prawns are ace. Give them a try you won't be dissapointed.
