We have been eating here on special occasions for the past 20 years. It has always been expensive (thus special occasions) but used to be unique, one of a kind meal. Sadly this time every thing we ordered came out tasting like the other. Maybe they are just cooking 1 or 2 sauces. Additionally, felt like too much thickening agent,... More

We always look forward to have dinner here, always great Chinese food. Great service. Every dish is excellent to share since they serve a lot. Our favorite dish have always been the chef's spicy fried rice and the Crispy Duck with grand Marnier Sauce. Last time I hate to say we were very disappointed on the duck. Very few small... More

Rainbow palace used to be a wonderful restaurant. We went many times over the years. Last night we made a reservation on OpenTable to meet friends there for dinner. The hostess was very friendly and We were seated promptly. We were then completely ignored by the waiter. We tried to get his attention while he waited on all of the... More

This is a place with very good food and an excellent service, This is not your cheap, everyday Chinese restaurant, this is an excellent place to eat traditional cantonese food. It is a little bit pricey, but the quality and presentation of the food worth it

Our family has been going to Rainbow Palace for nearly 20 years-- were there a week or so ago and it seemed quiet, so writing this to be sure they continue to do great business. This is simply THE BEST Chinese food we've ever had, and that's saying something from snobby New Yorkers who really know Chinese food from NY... More

I ate here a number of times, many years ago. I thought it was an excellent high end Chinese Restaurant. We had high hopes,b ut they were dashed rather quickly. The... More

Excellent service from Freddy. The crispy steak is wonderful. The shrimp Szechuan was very good but next time we'll ask for it hot, not medium spiced! There will be a next time. The venue is immaculate though traditional. A Fort Lauderdale institution that must be experienced.

My wife & I ate there this evening, first time we have eaten at the Rainbow Palace, great first Time experience, will definitely go back. Upscale restaurant, table service service excellent, staff had attention to detail, pricey for Chinese food, but not your regular Chinese type of restaurant, extensive wine menu. It's a dining experience.
