Wish I read the reviews prior. If sometimes you don't take reviews at face value... I understand, but don't go... They were flustered serving 2 dine-in patrons & 3 take out orders at 6:30pm on SUN. It took 40min to receive carry out. Mongolian beef veggies were overcooked. Sweet & Sour sauce covered the chicken, (remember take out) so when... More

Had been going there for years nothing special but the food was good. But I went about a year ago and place was dirty and food was nothing special.

I have been ordering food from Lim's for over 30 years. Their menu has changed with the times, younger family members have come in and taken over the business. We love their food, however usually do take out. The interior of Lim's needs an update, the inside looks the same as it did in the 80's! The food is still... More

Don't let the beautiful photos fool you into thinking this place is good/ or even edible!! My friend and I went here at the (VERY BAD!) advice of another friend. We figured if he said it was good it must be!! BOY were we wrong! Hot & sour soup was disgusting. The sweet & sour chicken I ordered was very... More

Worst Chinese food I've ever tasted! Win Ton Soup was watery & tasteless! I think they fill the egg rolls with shredded paper! The Cashew Chicken had exactly 4 small pieces of chicken & 5 or 6 puny cashew halves mixed in mounds of vegetables! The fried rice was gummy & flavorless! Never offered a beverage (doesn't tea come with... More

I don't eat standard Chinese food too often. But if you like Chinese, this place is a safe bet. Always fresh, always consistent. Service is always fast & efficient. So when I am in the mood for delicious sesame chicken meal, I always think of Lim's Palace.

We had a shower there recently and the food was good. It was served family style and the offers for more food came quickly and often. The service was swift and pleasant.

Been here many times for lunch. I've tried several lunch specials and all tasted great. You get a lot of food for the price. Some of the best egg roles I've ever had. The staff is very polite.

I can always say more.....Lim's has been a mainstay of Clawson for generations. This past arm of the family doesn't seem to be of the same consistency of great Chinese food, seems they are trying to ride on the name of the past successes, without the great food and service behind them. I grew up in Clawson, lived here since... More

I wish I liked this place better...considering it's one of the few dine-in chinese restaurants in my immediate area...I know they were on some dirty-dozen lists in the past...and, I have gone there many times in the last 20 years...I stopped going once I heard of them being on some dirty dozen lists, and then returned-to give them more chances-but...
