Very nice place. Easily accessible for someone who is mobility challenged. Sushi is very good along with their soups and mu favorite bouben chicken. This is where my daughter wants to go every time she comes home. Small but with a relaxed feel. Service is excellent.

We tried this restaurant for the first time about 7 years ago and still go there for take out or dining in. It is consistent in the preparation of food and customer service. Nice to have a quality local sit down place in the neighborhood other than chain establishments catering to the University population.

I was blown away! I hadn't eaten Oriental food this good in many years. The service was great also. The setting is small and in a strip mall. I will not be surprised to find this place in a private larger estate when I return to Orlando. I had the General Tso's and Hot and Sour Soup with green tea.... More

I was in one of those moods where I had no idea what I wanted but wanted to try some place I had not been. After looking up the places I bookmarked, Summer Palace was close by and I thought I would give it a whirl. As I was approaching the door I see a sign that says "All you... More

I come here once or twice a week for lunch. For$5.45 I get a combo platter with an eggroll and fortune cookie. The staff is very friendly and the place is always clean.You will spent more one any fast food and never the same food quality.

We have been searching for a great Chinese restaurant in the East Orlando area for over 17 months and have finally found one! There are lots of Chinese restaurants in the area, but we find that they don't serve authentic meals or they are too bland. We ordered Chicken three styles and Imperial Beef which is fried beef strips with... More

I am new to Orlando, and a coworker who also lives in the Waterford area recommended this place for good Chinese. The food is excellent, service is very good, and portions are large. Overall a very good Chinese food joint.

We had not been to Summer Palace in about 2 years. It "was" one of our favorite Chinese food restaurants. I remember the pork fried rice I ordered then, was not as good as I had remembered from previous visits and at that time, I thought, they aren't using freshly cooked pork but rather some type of precooked pork. So... More

I often visit this restaurant when I'm in the mood for Chinese food, or when I have visitors from out of town. In an area where most restaurants cut quality to provide cheap food to college students, Summer Palace stands out. I've tried many things on their menu, but my favorite dish remains General Tso's chicken. The food is good... More
