We had a celebratory family meal here over the Easter weekend. As an extended family we often eat in Chinese restaurants and have experienced some that cope well with larger groups and others that fail dismally. Fortunately this one did very well. It was a busy evening but we were waited on attentively. Our three courses were well-paced which is a success in our book. The food was fresh tasting and good examples of some standard Chinese dishes. Not enough spring onion or sauce for the duck pancakes - but this is a fairly routine experience - by the time the extras have arrived it is always too late. As often happens we felt a bit bullied into drinking wine up so that we could be embarrassed into ordering one more bottle tan we would have had normally. However despite these minor faults it was a very good evening - and we will go again when we're next in Sussex!

We tried this restaurant for the first time, we enjoy Chinese meals and this was a lovely dining experience, attention to customers and excellent service. Food was good and hot, would recommend to anyone in the area, booking maybe necessary.

We went here on our last night in Arundel, and were lucky to get in bearing in mind it was Chinese New Year. We were even luckier to get a prime table and see the Dragon celebrations an also had an excellent one on one magic show from the magician they'd hired for the night. The food was good (although not spectacular) and was from a set meal due to the nature of the evening. Staff were very friendly and the service was good. I get the impression that you could go another night and get a completely different experience; however ours was good based on the entertainment.

Second visit here but nowhere near as good as the first visit. It was a Sunday and only two couples were in besides us. Strange when the town is so full of cars! Three of us had the set two course - pretty good value at £7 a head but my choice( Singapore noodles) was lacking in flavour and was cold. The pancake roll starter was lacking in flavour too....wanted salt but no condiments on the tables. It was only 1c outside and not much warmer inside! Felt a bit rushed too as they obviously wanted to shut up shop. Not too impressed.

The China Palace is extremely accommodating and will always find you a table even late at night when other local restaurants have stopped serving. The food is delicious and the service is good. Good selection of wines too and excellent value for money.
