I consider the Red Palace your better than average Asian buffet. There are plenty of options to choose from, including a salad bar with shrimp, a variety of soups and a number of other items with all of the usual Asian fare and then some. The place was busy but they kept the buffet clean and well stocked. All of... More

I used to live in Roanoke and go to this restaurant rather frequently. I find it to be better than most Asian buffets in the area. My most recent trip was no exception and found it to be similar to past experiences and a decent value.

I have been there twice and both times...many of the selections were just room temperature...if that. I even went different times and on different days. They have a decent selection -- a bit heavy on the fried food, but the soups (at least they were hot) were great. Customer service was always top notch -- I just don't know why... More

I've been to a lot of Asian Buffets. This one is average. A lot of fried food, few vegetable dishes, heavy sauces. I got their "special soup", it wasn't very special. They had a nice selection of desserts. The wait staff was very friendly.

I have been here many times, but this is the first time reviewing Red Palace. I have gotten good food consistently from here. The waiters are always nice, and prompt about removing your empty plates and keeping drinks refilled. This time we went at dinner, and weren't disappointed! The crab cheese wontons were so fresh, the beef and pepper steak... More

Food was pretty good. Service was excellent and I did not get that ugh feeling I normally get with buffets. Overall experience, atmosphere and food was better than I thought it would be.

Dinner with husband on a rainy night. Pretty typical buffet fare except for the house seafood soup, which was exceptional. Staff was super friendly and food all fresh and hot.

We had a really good buffet meal here and would go back again very soon if we lived in the USA. The price was very reasonable and the service was good.
