If you want authentic Chinese food, this is not the place. But if you are looking for generous portions, friendly service, and reasonable prices, you won't be disappointed. Since it's American Chinese, regardless what dishes you order, they all taste similar. They are all a bit too sweet for me. But I still come here to eat after thirty-some years.

The negative reviews are surprising, we've been patronizing China Palace for over a decade. This family run restaurant serves huge portions of really good Chinese food. The menu item flavors are very close to the dishes I've tried both in Hong Kong and on mainland China so, though slightly Americanized, the flavors are very similar to what was served in... More

We recently discovered Great China last year and frequent often. Like many restaurants, when you find something you like, you tend to stick with it. We enjoy spicy food, so here are a couple of our favorites: Hot and Sour Soup, Salt and Pepper Fish, Chicken with spicy black bean sauce. We also like their Mu Shu dishes, Eggplant in... More

The Wait Staff was very friendly and the Restaurant looked clean. The food sucked! The Chicken Chow Mein was oily and had the texture of Spaghetti Noodles and not alot of Chicken in it. Their version of Almond Chicken Sauce was a muddy oil based bowl of goo, not the creamy White Sauce as shown in their Website photo, very... More

Small restaurant, very good food. Plenty of it. Unless you have a really big appetite, plan to take food home. Pleasant and cozy atmosphere. Good service. Would definitely go again.

Great China is not a huge place but the food has big flavor and the portions are substantial. The hot & sour soup is the best I've ever had and the cashew chicken is great. Service is fast & friendly. There are a variety of good lunch specials at a reasonable price.

We have eaten there for several years. The food is always excellent. The portions are humongous! The server (Jenny) is the best! We have never had a poor meal there. The individual dishes are fantastic, and so are the combination dinners. I get combo #D, and my husband always gets the beef and vegetables. When you get orders to go,... More

When we first migrated to Kirkland we were steered to Great China Restaurant. On our first visit we encountered two of our new neighbors also dining there. Since then, have met former Kirkland residents in other parts of the country and somehow the great food at Great China seems to be a common topic (unsolicited recommendations). Really good food and... More

Love this place for lunch but surprisingly few vegetarian entrees at lunch unless you just want a plate of vegetables. No tofu (bean curd) on lunch menu. If they did, we'd be coming here a lot more often. They are consistent. Food is nicely seasoned. Love the five star heat!

Love this place except they need more options especially at lunch for vegetarians. There isn't a lunch option for vegetarians that includes a protein, yes, tofu. We'd like to see a tofu option at lunch and brown rice instead of white as an option. And it wouldn't hurt to have an option for adding tofu to a vegetable entrée at... More
