Me and my partner came here last night for something to eat. When we arrived, what seemed to be the owner welcomed us and was very pleasant. The restaurant was very quiet with us and just another family in at that moment. Me and my partner had prawn toast to start with and was presented with plenty which was fantastic... More

As we only live in hapton this is local to us and use it on a regular basis, mainly for takeaway. We have been to the restaurant for the buffet too which is excellent! There are lot of Chinese takeaways to choose from but this by far is the best anywhere without going into China town in Manchester, it's that... More

The food is the main thing for a restaurant obviously but service and value add to the deal. The food at Summer Palace is plentiful and very tasty. Like so many small businesses they use some teenage staff who don't always prioritise customer satisfaction. This isn't a gripe just an observation seen at many restaurants and while most of the...

We have eaten here many times as a couple or with family & friends. The staff are always friendly & helpful, the food has always been excellent. There is plenty of choice, but they will also alter dishes to suit. Cannot fault the restaurant or staff, great place to eat.

Highly recommended. The staff can't do enough for you, you can see that they really value their customers. A great atmosphere with very good quality food with generous portions. This restaurant is often very busy - they must be doing something right as it has quickly seemed to grow in popularity since being taken over a few years ago. Thank... More
