Monday night so not the busiest , its a popular spot for bus groups during the day and has been for years. All dishes were to expectations and the classic style Chinese . Parking good and service excellent , waitress if said we had ordered to much between two so we cancelled one dish.

This is a busy restaurant. We enjoyed entrees and had to wait a little while for our main courses. We shared chicken and cashew nuts and crispy fried beef. Both dishes were plentiful and tasty and made a good contrast to each other. The beef was particularly good.

Came here as part of a tour group and expected the food to be horrible! We had rice , curry chicken with potato, soup, veggies ( two types) and braised beef. Was actually not bad at all !

We were looking for a good Chinese meal, saw all the buses with Asian tourists which were stopped here, and thought it must be good! It was. In spite of the dining room being almost full, the service was fast, friendly, helpful and the food was hot and delicious. Prices were average. Does not accept American Express cards.

The restaurant was quite busy when we arrived but we didn't wait long for service. The waitress was very helpful when we were unsure of what, & how much to order eg. the Crispy Skin Chicken was a whole chicken...... the most delicious I have ever tasted. It was a cold night, the fire was going & the atmosphere was... More

I think this restaurant caters mainly for the coach loads of Asian tourists coming to Katoomba on day trips; hence lunchtimes are much busier than dinners. So, dinner at the Canton Palace was a quiet affair where we enjoyed very friendly and attentive service from the (Australian?) waitress. The food was served quickly and efficiently and everything was delicious. Washed... More

What a delight to receive such attentive and friendly service I wish I had got our waitresses name as she was fantastic. We were a table of five and we all loved our meals, super tasty and quick to come out. Hard to pick a favourite but the Beef in plum sauce was a hit with everyone. Surprisingly creme brûlée... More

We arrived without a booking..they explained they were really busy and if we were prepared to wait 40 mins we could proceed to a table..we were more than happy to enjoy a pre dinner drink...our entrees came out 35 mins later and followed at a reasonable amount of time by our mains. By this time 2 large noisy tables of... More
