“Triumphant dinner party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2006

Finding a subtly and tastefully decorated Chinese restaurant is not easy. Triumphal Palace on Main Street & Fifth in Alhambra fits the bill. They have two elegantly decorated private rooms suitable for 10 guests. We recently hosted a dinner there and were extremely satisfied with the service and sizable portions. The food was a bit uneven but since we were impressed with the quality of the service and the atmosphere, I still recommend the restaurant. Many of our guests thought it the best Chinese food they've eaten but some of us prefer spicier and more complex flavors. The wait staff is superb, I requested that the food not be served in a rushed manner and they accommodated my request. Ten dishes were well paced and varied. Paul Pau and Salima were in charge of the service and deserve recognition for their attention. The corkage fee is $10.00, no matter the number of bottles. Throughout the evening, the service was attentive and unobtrusive.
