The sea palace is one of the best chinese restaurants in penzance, yes it could do with a bit of a face lift. Its looked the same now for many years. But its the food that keeps us going back time and time again. This time was for a friends birthday, as always great...

We tend to have takeaway from Sea Palace but occasionally eat in. Food is consistently good and accuracy of order perfect. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Menus is extensive with something for everyone.

Came here for a meal with family. Staff were gossiping about other staff in front of us and didn't come across professional at all. We were then seated downstairs which was a bit cold and tables were to close to others as they had a lot of bookings that night. Food wasn't hot when it came out and it got... More

A lovely restaurant with good and friendly staff. The food is excellent and tasty. I can recommend it. The set menu of the week is really good value.

We decided to try a takeaway as the reviews were pretty good. Unfortunately it was the worst chinese we've eaten. Every dish was reheated/refried and lacked any real flavour. In a chicken noodle dish there was hardly any chicken. Sweet and sour chicken looked like it was refried multiple times! Overall a greasy mess. Wouldn't recommend

Ordered a delivery, all the fod was reheated and refried. Possibly the worst Chinese I've ever had. Don't recommend ordering a takeaway from here.

We came here on a Friday evening after a day out visiting some beautiful local hotspots, and enjoyed a wonderful meal of mixed appetisers, crispy aromatic duck with pancakes, and a selection of seafood mains. The scallops were wonderfully fresh and the chilli squid was one of the best I've ever had. It was quite quiet for a Friday night,... More
