Literally the best oriental food that I've ever tried. It's not your typical Chinese buffet. The lunch meals are superb, and run until 3pm. They almost all come with fried rice, egg drop soup, and crab cheese. My favorite is beef and green pepper. And did I mention the decor? Very relaxing and vintage feeling.

My husband and I tried this. He loves fried wantons. He liked them. I thought they were a little over cooked. They were kind of difficult to bite into without scratching the inside of your mouth. Forget breaking them in half. Too overcooked! Our meals were great though. You get a very large portion and can choose plain or fried... More

I love the food at China Palace, every time I'm in Midland I make a point to stop in for lunch or dinner. They have a wide variety of food available on the buffet, but I always order off the menu because it gives me enough for 2 meals. I recommend their fried wanton appetizer, it's very good. The service... More

My husband and I eat at this restaurant at least once a month. The restaurant has a full menu including wine and beer. We get good service and the staff is friendly.

Never disappointed. Love the food. I have been going to China Palace for 30+ years. Only criticism is the place needs an uplift and a good redecorate.

Haven't been here in a year or so. Egg drop soup has changed. Real thick and no flavor. Good variety on buffet, but not the same taste as when I was here last. Mongolian beef was not spicy. Must have changed cooks. Service is always good. Place use to be packed at lunch time. When we were there, not many... More

We have been regulars for many years now and China Palace is our only asian food stop in Midland. Only recommendation... facility needs updating. Many years of wear and tear but the food and service remains excellent.

For a city that does not have many options the China Place was always a go too when I lived in Midland. Fast and friendly service and the food has always been prepared correctly.
