We recently had my mom's 90th surprise birthday party at the Sunny Palace. At first, the room that we wanted was already reserved, so the manager suggested their smaller room. We estimated that we would have about 80 guests - we were told the room could only accommodate 70. Well, the manager went above and beyond to see if he could accommodate 80 - safely and comfortably. If not, he was willing to set up additional seating. It worked out that we were able to get 82 guests seated - a little tight, but it was better than setting up tables outside the room.

The manager was also very patient and flexible when discussing the party menu - willing to switch dishes out, and making sure that there was enough food for the larger tables (15 persons).. The wait staff were also extremely helpful - adding additional seats, and taking care of all of our requests.

Overall the food was very good. If we need to have another party in NJ - this would certainly be our first choice.

Just a note: we picked this place because we are familiar with the food - dim sum and dinner.

Love coming here for weekend dim sum. There aren't very many places for dim sum in Central NJ- the one in Middletown is not nearly as clean as Sunny Palace. This past weekend my family went exactly as they opened so there was no waiting in line- it gets crowded by 11:30! Come with a big group and hearty appetites- you'll want to try everything.

The food is just OK. Very oily and not much flavor.

We have been here for the Sat/Sun dim sum-always very good.
Last nite-Valentines day my wife & business associate decided to go for dinner.
What a mistake, the appetizers came to the table cold or lukewarm.
We had lemon chicken-so much batter that the meat was hard to find, my wife had the westlake duck(a chefs special) looks like they took the leftover duck battered it(too much again) and fried it in not hot enough oil-horrible, I had the Sunny special casserole-it was only served in a casserole the seafood was good but huge chunks(who was prepping this stuff?)not even close to a traditional clay pot style casserole
Overall the meal sucked, maybe because Valentines crowd-by the time our entrees were served, the restaurant was 1/4 full so the kitchen could have done a much better job.
PLEASE AVOID THIS PLACE FOR DINNER

If you like dim sum and you live in NJ, this is the place where you can get amazing dim sums. Husband and I visit twice every month. Its available only on weekends. It gets crowded by 12 pm but worth waiting in the line .. I would recommend this restaurant for dim sum and dumpling lovers
