We were pleased to find a place serving dim sum in Worthing, and it seemed like a bit of a hidden gem when we went upstairs and emerged into a large open space, furnished with classical Chinese items. The staff were attentive, but the menu...More

We are regular visitors to China Palace and the food can be a bit hit and miss at times. Last night the chicken was slimy and the beef completely inedible it was like shoe leather. I don't think we will be going there again soon....More

Picked up a takeaway for large family gathering. Ordered set menus that provided several popular dishes . Pleasantly surprised, it was all really good although way too much food, could have done with half of it.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
hi, i was just wondering, can you order as many dishes as you like for the £15.80 buffet menu? and also do you get to choose the dishes of the menu and they give them to you? or are they already served on a long table and you just help yourself and fill your plate up? sorry im a little confused and am interested to go there soon! thanks.
