“Cheap lovely chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

For 125 SEK I got buffet with a big coke and fried banana with ice cream for dessert. The buffet is lovely with a good variety of choise. It was packed with people, so if you need lunch come not later that 14.30 before some dishes run out.

“Chinese food with a twist of Japan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

I can recommend the lunch buffet at this restaurant. They have a good variety of dishes offered, and if you wish you can also have a choice of sushi (included in the price, around 90 skr). For that sum of money you can eat as much as you like and have a cup of coffee or tea and a biscuit to end your meal with.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The evening menu is also worth trying!

“Good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Eastern Palace got a boost after they moved to the city centre. They
celebrated the move with a new, extended menu which has proved very
popular.

The lunch buffet (95 SEK/around 10 euros) is very popular. The restaurant
was not as crowded on the Sunday evening when we visited.

I had the teriyaki beef, (168 SEK) which was nice. My wife had the buffet,
which she loves. The evening buffet (169 SEK/around 20 euros) offers
traditional Chinese dishes, sushi and other Japanese dishes and Mongolian
barbeque.

The restaurant is also more fresh and attractive than the old one.

It's a good restaurant, but personally I prefer the two Indian restaurants
in Umeå.
