We decided to try a takeaway as the reviews were pretty good. Unfortunately it was the worst chinese we've eaten. Every dish was reheated/refried and lacked any real flavour. In a chicken noodle dish there was hardly any chicken. Sweet and sour chicken looked like it was refried multiple times! Overall a greasy mess. Wouldn't recommend

Ordered a delivery, all the fod was reheated and refried. Possibly the worst Chinese I've ever had. Don't recommend ordering a takeaway from here.

We came here on a Friday evening after a day out visiting some beautiful local hotspots, and enjoyed a wonderful meal of mixed appetisers, crispy aromatic duck with pancakes, and a selection of seafood mains. The scallops were wonderfully fresh and the chilli squid was one of the best I've ever had. It was quite quiet for a Friday night,... More

Located near to the harbour, Jubilee Pool and Barbican area of Penzance, this Restaurant is typical of many. The staff however were very attentive and catered well with quite a boisterous group. They even were happy to break the bill down to individual payments.

We took some old friends and new friends, to the sea palace. We have been there many times before, and have always had a great meal. The place itself could do with a bit of it paint up, but its all about the food. The food was as always great as was the service. We will be going back again.

Dined twice during our two-day trip to Penzance. The staffs are friendly and attentive. The food is delicious that taste just like home (we are from China). I would recommend it!

We have often eaten here and have always found the staff very pleasant and polite and the food is always good at the very least. We do accept that that it is rather dated and often lacks atmosphere as it's not often very busy to eat in, though the takeaway always does brisk trade. It can on occasions be rather... More
