“Hot spicy and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Hot dry pepper (chicken or fish) were excellent as was sizzling lamb (on the menu it was listed as beef, but our server Tom requested the chef to replace with lamb) it was terrific. A hint of sweetness followed by the spice and heat. Wow! The owner Mr. Lee is a gracious host

“Bad experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

A friend and I were having lunch at the Yi Palace in Newark Delaware. Before we were ready to leave, we were asked by the waitress if we could leave because there were customers waiting. THAT WAS SIMPLY RUDE! Never in my whole life was I told to leave a restaurant before I was ready. What a terrible service! I would never go back to that restaurant again. Avoid!

“The Closest Thing to Dining in Chinatown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The food here is as authentic as the dishes and flavors you will find when you eat in Chinatown. Chinese cuisine is a favorite of mine and i frequently visit Chinatown to enjoy it .
Yi Palace , in my opinion, serves the most authentic Chinese cuisine in this area . Try the Pineapple Pork .......... it's absolutely delicious !

“unusually good...not your standard Chinese Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Pretty extensive menu. We've never been disappointed. Every time we've been there, at least half of the diners are Asian, so I feel that their food must be pretty authentic.

“Bad and rude service!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Me along with four other colleagues went to Yi place on friday for lunch. Food was ok. But the service was too bad. The waitress didnt even respond to our requests for water and all. Once the check was given, we paid a modest 10% as tip. You wont believe what happened next. The waitress came back and asked for a 15% tip. When we said, we were not happy with the service, she said , thats just an excuse for not giving the tip. and it shows we are poor. My Friend, who was shocked by this rude behaviour, corrected the amount on the card and gave a 15% tip. We would never go back to Yi place again. Avoid !!
