“Well I never...”
Review of China Palace

China Palace
Ranked #10 of 105 Restaurants in El Centro
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

When you visit a restaurant titled "China Palace", naturally you don't expect amazing steaks. Well kids, pull up a sandbag and listen in. This restaurant provided potentially one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Perfectly cooked, well accompanied with fresh salad, a good selection of sauce, it's was fantastic. Only downside is the limited English spoken by the waiting staff.

Always a great place for special occasions and intimate dinners. The food is great, the service wonderful and great bar. It is a family tradition for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and birthdays.

Some of the best Chinese food you will find anywhere. Okay atmosphere. Fair fare. Cold Chinese beer.

Paid $30 for dried out meat and not even what I had ordered. The driver was given terrible information so the poor guy got lost. He was the best part of the whole ordeal. The food was a waste, not even edible. Pretty sure the fried shrimp was actually past due.

My wife and I went to the steakhouse side. Wife's ribeye was perfectly cooked, as was my filet. Teriyaki sauce on my chicken was also excellent (I had the combo). Creme brûlée was average--be warned, the rim of the ramekin is very hot.
