10 years has taught us "pretty much" what we ought to have learned about the food at Ko Palace. If the menu doesn't give you a clue (inexpensive luncheons), you're kidding yourself. The family-run cafe is NOT trying to be "white-table-cloth" in their service or food. They are trying to serve a value, and in the doing, they have been successful. It's simply prepared, fast-served, South-China fare, modified for Americans.
The best item (in our considered opinion) is the Hot 'n Sour soup. Raymond (owner) is realistic, he knows wonderful Chinese food is best found where Chinese people live. What he does is simple, tasty, and fast-served... and oh, did I tell you it's under $7.00 per person, including the tea!

The owner was very nice and happy to meet every one who walkes in the door, alot of local police officers and politions frequent the place. There are photographs of him with people all over the place. The reviews on the restrant are on how likable the owner is and not the food which is pretty bad, and average at best.

I will never understand the great reviews this place gets! Gummy corn starch laden food with no flavor..szechuan beef with mostly veggies and a miniscule amount of meat that was cut so tiny as to be nonexistent. Shrimp with lobster sauce was a joke. Sorry Albuquerqueans but if you think this is good chinese food you need to get out more!

This is where we go when we want the 'Best Chinese Food' in Albuquerque! There are other good Chinese restaurants in Albuquerque but this one has the best formula. . .

Great food + reasonable price + Outstanding service = Yum!!

My family has been going to Ko Palace since it opened many years ago. The food has always been fabulous. It is consistant, fresh, hot and wonderful. They have the best sauces we have ever tasted, and we have eaten at many different asian restaurants. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed . The prices are very reasonable too. What a great combination !
