This restaurant tries to be a cut above the usual chinese buffet restaurant. It's fairly small in seating. The staff is attentive.

Located in a shopping center near the Bradbury Science Museum and the YMCA. It has delicious food, prepared thoughtfully and beautifully. This place has it all for you. We go a lot after church on Sunday with friends. Lots of good Chinese cuisine, vegetables dishes, soup, sushi, and yummy desserts.

Enjoyed the food at the Palace yesterday. Was a bit surprised at the limited selection but was pleased with the flavor of all the food I sampled. The other place has twice the selection but at twice the price. Will go back to the Palace based on the taste versus the money spent.

Stopped in with my wife on a day trip from Santa Fe. We ended up here because our other choices were closed (Sunday). On par with previous reviews, food was very bland, but warm on a cold snowy day. However, we ate with our coats on, the restaurant was very cold. I'd look elsewhere.

We ordered take-out, and the food had no flavor, at all. It was so bland, it was actually hard to eat. Even the fortune cookies were stale.

we had three dishes last night . One was spicy so that was the flavor. The other two were very bland. The hot tea was only lukewarm. The wishes come out one at a time.

Slow service; not enough waitstaff. Bland food that all tastes about the same. Expensive. There are too many tables crowded in and worse they are those horrid banquet tables and chairs. The decor is 1980 - pink walls and awful huge paintings.

Arrived in Los Alamos mid afternoon and was starving. The local Greek place (Pyramid) was closed midday (what's up with that???), so we went next door for Chinese. Although the buffet ended at 2 p.m., the food was good - just higher per person than the buffet would have been. I'd recommend any of the dishes we had - noodle... More

We LOVE their pot stickers! Chicken Fried Rice is so good, I ate up all yesterday's leftovers and am going back for more tonight! Going to try the Shrimp Fried Rice and get more mu shu pork. We had chicken curry yesterday too. It was very fresh, but I wish the curry sauce had been thicker, it was more like... More
