We have eaten at Summer Palace many times over the past few years, and always thought the food was good, at a reasonable price. A recent visit showed that the upkeep on the restaurant seems to be going downhill. The carpet, booths, and especially the rest rooms are in need of an upgrade. Some of the food items on the buffet were not up to temperature. Most of the items were tasty, and there is a large variety to choose from. The service was slow, but on a buffet that does not matter much, except when you need more water or tea. I can recommend eating there, but just barely.
