Went there couple of times for Dim Sum, a good place for authentic Cantonese dim sum.

Last weekend was there for dinner, to try out if we would hold a gathering there, the cooking is not consistant. The soup and beef is very delicious, but vegetable is under cooked, half chicken dish is below average. So in all, I wasn't impressed with the dinner, I would still go back for dim sum in the future.

This is what I call the authentic Chinese Dimsum. They peddle their dimsum dishes on push carts and frequently pass your table. Lots of choices and very good quality food ! Will definitely go back for more.

My family and I visited Century Palace for the first time on a Sunday--the day most people go for Dim Sum. We enjoyed the fact that the food came around in various carts, which is the way Dim Sum is traditionally served. The dishes were pretty authentic. The service, however, was excruciatingly slow. If you go, do make a reservation so you don't have to wait to be seated. Also, request for a table that is in the center of the restaurant rather than at the sides, to ensure that the servers who come around with the food carts see you.

We had a recommendation to come here based on a flyer - a set meal for $88++ however this only applies during weekdays, there is a surcharge of a few more dollars for weekend dining however, the food that came was really nice and tasty and was good value too. Our set included sharks fin soup, 2 lobsters, roast meats, drunken chicken. Rice was the only let down - it was rushed and some of it was a bit uncooked/dry.

Service was also good with top ups for tea and a change of plates if you need it, the waiters do attend to you though if you go early, they may not be around in sufficient numbers.

This is set in an older smaller mall but with parking in the lot.

Another Hong Kong style, mass market Chinese restaurant. Don't expect much in food quality. Dim sum is okay but I won't go for dinner.
