We have passed this door many times but never again, this is gem. Back in Clonakilty for their annual Guitar Festival and we were looking for something ' familiar' to eat so in we popped to the Sea Palace Chinese, greeted seated and order placed, beer and wine in hands we sat back to rest our aching bodies ... three...

Walked in off the street. Immediately welcomed in. Staff interacted with the kids. Both crispy beef and chicken satay as main courses were delicious. Kids had noodles, chicken skewers and ribs. All really good. Staff were so nice. The only negative I would have would be the decor and toilets probably need updating but I would definitely go back for... More

Really nice takeaway whilst on holiday in the area. Chow mein and crispy beef was smashing. Was a little pricy but the food was good. Highly recommend.

Food poorly prepared. They must boil the chicken with no seasoning and then stick it in what ever sauce you ordered. Not how I learned to cook Chinese food.

Away on business and decided in Clonakilty with a town full of restaurants to visit a Chinese. Not a good decision. When I approached it did not look open. Service OK but food only passable.

Went for a group meal - food was OK but just massive portions. Can do without (large) starters - would be better to focus on quality not quantity. Nothing intrinsically wrong with it, just the mountains of 'OK' food was nothing special - just average.

We had a really good time and enjoyed the food a lot with my husband that never eaten chinese and loved... More

Went for dinner and although the portion sizes were enormous the food itself was pretty tasteless and did not taste fresh at all! Two totally different dishes seemed to have the same sauce on them (which was just plain wrong) and then a chow mien dish was just smothered in vegetables with few noodles and no beansprouts whatsoever which I...

We have visited Clonakilty on many occasions and passed this restaurant but never eaten there before our visit this year - we have been missing a treat!. The food was absolutely delicious - tasty and well prepared, the service was good and we had a lovely evening. It is also very good value for money.

Thank Harr0gate
