“Wonderful restaurant really enjoyed it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

I have visited the Ocean Palace restaurant and it is always a joy to visit it when going to Blackpool. It has to be one of the best Chinease's I've ever been to. I have the chicken curry with egg fried rice and we have a portion of mixed vegetables too. Not forgetting the chicken and sweetcort soup to start off with! Delicious. The service was friendly and efficient and the restaurant had a great atmosphere on the bustly Friday/ Saturday night when we visited. The restaurant is lovely and traditional, something which I always appreciate - all which contibutes further to the great experience, being in cosy, intimate surroundings! Very highly recomended.

The restuarant is conveniently located and very reasonably priced too.

“Enjoyed a lovely meal here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Enjoyed a lovely meal here on Friday evening! It was a traditional Chinese restaurant - decor similar to this so if your expecting a swanky place, this isnt it - this is a more traditional restaurant. The staff were friendly and the food was lovely!

“Just about adequate.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Restaurant decor was tired and uninspiring; red and white walls with assorted pictures last seen on restaurants circa 1985and The seat leather on my chair was cracked.

The food was just about adequate; prawn crackers cold and so oily I could almost see my own refelection in them, and at £2.40 i was less than impresssed. The soup came out very fast and super hot suggesting over use of microwave. The main was ok, with a decent portion size.
On the up-side the Service was excellent, staff were friendly and helpful.

“Under-staffed but worth the wait.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Only one waitress and a restaurant which quickly filled up with diners. Usual Chinese selection. We had the most expensive buffet, being greedy pigs, and it was as expected except for the prawn toast which was the best we have ever had by far. Good selection of Chinese teas. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff and taxi driver. Good value. Could do with upgrading the decor.
