“A pleasant Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

It is not often that I can be bothered with writing reviews, but after my visit there on Saturday, I have to say that I was impressed. We had won £20 of vouchers so 4 of us went there for lunch. We were the only people, in there, so the atmosphere was a bit quiet as you can imagine. I was initially not confident that this was going to be any good, but was pleasantly surprised. Duck to start with was exactly as it should be, and the mixed starters were well received, though the satay was quite spicy. I had the yellow bean and Chicken with cashew nuts (my favourite) and I was not disappointed. The dish was full of flavour, and one of the best I have had. My sons sizzling beef was incredibly tender, the chicken satay and chicken chow mein were both equally as good. Even the egg fried rice was delicious.So all in all a great meal.

“excellent food as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

we had spare ribs and battered scallops with chillies for starters and the main course sea bass in soya sauce with chillies and pork. The food is excellent every time we go, we will not go anywhere else for a chinese and the service is excellent

“very nice meal at the Peking Palace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We enjoyed a very nice meal on Sunday night. The starters (crispy seaweed, satay chicken, prawn toast, ribs and pancake rolls were excellent). The main courses of chicken with crispy noodles and sweet and sour Pork Hong Kong style were good but not special.The service was polite and unassuming i.e we were not hassled. Overall a very good meal.

“A brilliant past but it's the present that counts”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is a difficult review as we have been so many times in the past and had a 5 star experience. Unfortunately as a party of 7 we had awful customer service with chewy ribs but the food otherwise was fine. We were the only people in the restaurant and despite booking in advance a table for 7 we still had to stand and wait with a disabled motherinlaw whilst a waitress faffed around resetting a table for 8 into 7. We were left with our coats on the back of our chairs when staff could have taken them for us. We sorted out our own napkins whilst staff chatted to each other. When wine was ordered we had to ask to taste it then left to pour our own all night. Staff chatted at the table next to us all night when empty glasses sat cluttering the table, then we were charged nearly £18 service for being looked after! Awaiting service refund!
