El Palacio was a good Chinese restaurant in San Miguel with some great dishes. It lost its lease on Mesones about two years ago moved to a new location but then closed again about six months ago.

Great service and yummy food! Lovely outdoor dining a bit far from centro but so worth the walk, or delivered to you! No other Chinese in town compares!

Palacino Chino is now located at Calzada de La Presa #77 near Calzada de La Luz We loved Chef Juan's stuffed eggplant and the Grand Marnier shrimp with pineapple. The tempura ice cream is another specialty worth every penny. Joyce & Bill

Garbage that only a few old dinosaurs who lost their sense of taste thought was edible. Pre-cooked, and laden with MSG. Location has nothing to do with this restaurant, it is simply horrible. Our group began eating, looked at each other, and no words were...More

Very generic Chinese food like you would find in an airport food court. The food was mushy, overcooked, and tasted like it had way too much MSG to be healthy. All 4 of us were etremely disappointed in our orders. The new space on Calzada...More
