I've eaten at this restaurant several times and find the dinner menu is consistently good. The chicken, beef, and pork are always tender and the sauces are first rate. They have some of the best egg rolls I've had and the hot and sour soup is to die for.

two hours after I had dinner there I got sick: vomiting, fever, you get the idea. It lasted three miserable days. Coincidence? I don't think so, I was fine with no symptoms just before.

Tried the Chicken curry and the chicken sweet and sour. Both meals were substantial and very tasty. Worth a visit.

Nothing was disappointing, everything was as it should have been. Ordered at the counter then came back to pick it up.

This restaurant tries to be a cut above the usual chinese buffet restaurant. It's fairly small in seating. The staff is attentive.

Located in a shopping center near the Bradbury Science Museum and the YMCA. It has delicious food, prepared thoughtfully and beautifully. This place has it all for you. We go a lot after church on Sunday with friends. Lots of good Chinese cuisine, vegetables dishes, soup, sushi, and yummy desserts.

Enjoyed the food at the Palace yesterday. Was a bit surprised at the limited selection but was pleased with the flavor of all the food I sampled. The other place has twice the selection but at twice the price. Will go back to the Palace based on the taste versus the money spent.

Stopped in with my wife on a day trip from Santa Fe. We ended up here because our other choices were closed (Sunday). On par with previous reviews, food was very bland, but warm on a cold snowy day. However, we ate with our coats on, the restaurant was very cold. I'd look elsewhere.

Thank Richard F
