After a few recent bad experiences at this restaurant in Doncaster we were reluctant to return. However, we were pleasantly surprised as the new Manager called PING was fab right from the minute we entered the restaurant. he welcomed us and was extremely curteous, pleasant and cheerful cracking jokes with us and assuring us of a lovely dining experience. We DID have alovely meal, however we would like to say the the 'DUCK' was much better quality when it was shredded at the table, it was poor in quality and resembeled sawdust. Other tha yhat the other dishes were delicious. Definitely worth a visit. Thanks Ping!

We have dined here before and it is the ultimum in dining out.Have the eat as much as you like for £16. The food is delicious, the staff obliging and entertaining (catch the chef in party mood) All in all the "best"

i just want to update my previous review

as i believe it was a one off

since that review i wrote last month i have been to china palace 5 times (yes the food is that good) and i have noticed the food is served quicker on ALL occasions

in my previous review i commented on the slow service and downgraded the rating.... i did say in the review i had given it one less star due to the service- however i feel i have been unfair

the food has been consistant, one thing i have noticed is that i feel they are always short staffed, as whenever you need a staff, if one is not with a customer another is serving drinks at the bar, the staff are always busy

highly recommend the freshly baked chinese custard tarts and scallop har gau

more photos to show in this review

p.s for a chinese dim sum restaurant the prices are quite cheap especially the scallop dim sum which is £2.70 (standard £3.80-£4.50)

Having been a regular visitor over many years to the China Palace and once since being taken over by new owners I was looking forward to a good family night out. How wrong was I, the food and the service have drastically dropped well below par. A lot of bland tasteless dishes, crispy duck that was extremely poor quality unlike previously when shredded at the table. I like to have a break between courses but what we experienced was poor. As for the constant banging and shouting by the teppanyaki chef my lord I thought I was in a circus!! And I am not a misery and do like a laugh!

All I can say is I will not be visiting again much better Chinese Restaurants and Take-Aways!! In Doncaster a shame really as this place used to be outstanding but has turned into a not so fast Chinese food joint with the price tag of a higher standard Restaurant!
