“Best Chinese in Penwith”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Myself and my Dad took my Mum here for a Birthday meal. Everything was spot on. Very good service and all the food was nice and hot. One thing i'd like to point out is i always go for Crab Soup as a starter, I was disapointed with the last Chinese Crab soup i had because they used those horrible crab sticks. With Sea Palace Crab and Sweetcorn soup you get fresh crab. Myself and my Mum shared the Special dinner "B" which was really nice. Barbecued Spare ribs were best i had in a very long time. I woke up this morning wanting to go again. We will be back.

“Excellent Chinese Food”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

My family and I have eaten at the Sea Palace many times and have never been disappointed. The service has always been friendly and efficient, and the food always delicious.

We never know what to choose from their extensive menu so always end up going for one of their set menus - this way everyone gets to try a bit of everything and help themselves to what they like, just how Chinese food should be eaten! At £18 per head for three courses it is really good value given the quality of the food.

The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated, full of traditional Chinese features, which makes for a very unique dining experience. They also have a take-away service, which I have yet to try, but judging from the queues of customers on a Saturday night must be very good also.

“the best eastern restaurant/takeaway in Penzance”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Ok,lets start with the entrance, this doesn't do justice to the inside. The steps may be a difficulty for less mobile people, but the staff would help anyone with problems. Once inside it's like one of these Chinese buildings with jade tiles and a little water feature in the corner of the small, but well stocked bar. This is a family run place who take a months annual from the 10th Feb every year. Now the service is second to none, very welcoming atmosphere with the owner always on hand to help. We haven't eaten in as yet,but, the takeaway food is brill. I love chicken curry, always ask for it extra hot,not greasy at all, the rice is perfect, my wife has the veggie tofu and loves it.. This place is a gem, highly recommanded

“Simply the Best in Penzance!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

As the title suggests, the best Chinese I have had in Penzance and I have tried most. There was one 5-6 years ago that was equal to the Sea Palace but unfortunately they moved away. The better quality is reflected in a slighty higher priced menu but only maybe 10 % which is well worth it.
