“Food was ok, Service Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Pretty standard Chinese fare in a buffet-style restaurant, although they did have several items, including a fried section with cheese bites, potatoes, etc.

They did have four different types of sush on the buffet, which was nice.

Service was good. My total was $12.32 for dinner buffet, drink, and tax.

I didn't try their "bubble teas", which seems to be something which could set the restaurant apart from other Chinese buffets.

“Food was decent for this area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food on the buffet are OK at this restaurant especially for this rural area they are in. Food is never hot but what can you expect at a buffet. Servers are friendly and quick.

“One sauce fits all.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Don't waste your money. All the food tasted the same. One bland sauce spread over a variety of items on the buffet. Overall, just yuk!

“Not a fancy place but the food was good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

China Palace is not fancy but the food is very solidly good. With a bit of finesse and ability to speak some Taiwanese or Mandarin although not required, you can order off menu and they would be happy to work with you to delight your company. I really wish more people would know about the place. The Chef came out to talk to us and he is the nicest guy!

“Yuck!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Seated quickly but that's where the good stopped. Bar was not refilled in a timely manner. Poorly prepared food. Will not return.
