“Reliably Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I have visited the Sea Palace on many occasions and it is always great. When I need to entertain clients, or just give our team a treat, this is where I bring them.

All the food is fantastic, but I particularly recommend the crispy duck, which is prepared at the table.

In the past it has seemed a little expensive, though my most recent visit did not seem so bad.

A lovely restaurant with a great setting. Service was remarkable. Food was great. Had lobsters stir fried with garlic and ginger, duck with pancakes and a mixed stir fry vegetable platter.

“Nice food at a good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

The overall experience was good, although not all the food was a 5, but everything was nice and well presented. The food came in an orderly timed fashion, everything was nice and warm.

The bill came to quite expensive, but I think it's worth the experience.

“Very authentic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I visited the Sea Palace on a lovely warm and sunny evening in July 2013. I was with a large group of about 30 people and we were accommodated upstairs together. The staff were quick to take our drinks orders yet it seemed to take them forever to actually bring the drinks over to us. I think in total we waited about 30 minutes!! We were a large group and there were lots of other people in the restaurant so we were understanding. The food was very nice, a real variety of Chinese food was served to us on the turning table. Plenty of rice and sauces however again it took about 1hr 30 after we sat down for us to be served. By this point we had finished our first drinks and wondered whether it was worth ordering another due to the time taken to be served. Saying this, the place was very impressive and very friendly members of staff. Lots of fancy decorations which made the place really nice. Would return if i visit Amsterdam again.
