“Typical chinese”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Starters were particularly good but rest was typical Chinese, all tasty but not too ambitious. Service was friendly and efficient. Sat in the room at the back which had less atmosphere until it filled with diners.

“Super Service”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I had booked ahead for this restaurant specifically asking for a table on the front on the restaurant as previous reviews had indicated that these were particularly nice.

They are.However, our table for two was a side-to-side seating instead of face-to-face. When we asked if we could move on a busy Saturday night, we were accommodated immediately. When my guest asked if she could change a dish on the set menu, that wasn't a problem either. Oh, and would you like some time between courses, "yess, please", no rushing you out at China Palace! The service here couldn't be better and made the food taste even better!

“Lovely fresh food in nice surroundings”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We visited with friends one Saturday evening having not been for some years. As soon as we arrived we remembered that the part of the restaurant by the entrance is very nicely decorated and we were given a table there. From memory the rest of the place is nice too but the booths and decor where we sat where very nice.
We ordered a set menu but also added some extras too which in hindsight we didn't need to as the portions were very generous!
Each course came out very hot so obviously freshly cooked, well presented and with a good amount of time between courses. We asked for a little extra before the mains as the starters and duck course had been so plentiful!
The service was very friendly and professional without being stand offish. All in all a really nice evening and we will go back again sooner than a couple of years so we can enjoy another pleasant evening here.
