I had been here a few years ago before and it's very similar to what it used to be like. The restaurant is HUGE there must be 50+ tables. My friend and I came on a Sunday and had the buffet for £18.80. There's a lot of options to choose from, soups, appetisers, main courses and duck with pancakes. We... More

She was made to feel uncomfortable for asking for plain rice. The... More

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 had a number of items taped over and unavailable and what we ordered took a... More

I've always liked the decor and size of this restaurant. Ten years ago the food was amazing but in recent years the food is minimal and lacking substance. We could barely find the prawns in the deep fried prawn dumplings and no vegetables in the spring rolls. The plum sauce for the duck with pancakes was off and the pineapple... More

Went here with work colleagues. Place was very busy. I can understand the hit or miss reviews. Some dishes like the sweet and sour ribs were lovely, but the pork with bean sprouts not so good as small portion and tepid, needed longer in the microwave...! The staff were rushed but a lot of them still smiled and joked with... 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. At £18.80 per person it was simply not good enough.

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.

Upon entering I was astounded by the amount of tables it now has! I presume the demand must be high as as the evening went on it was extremely busy! A good sign! Now for my "issues". There was difficulty with locating our booking. Food menu on table but no drinks menu. Took the waiter 10/15 minutes to provide the... More

We called up in advance as someone in the party had an allergy, the man on the phone said that it would be no problem and that she would be able to eat 98% of what was on the menu, however when we arrived the very rude waiter suggested that she just eat chips. It appeared that the 'allergy' was... More

Called in to this Restaurant by chance on Chinese new year eve. Fully booked but table found. Very acceptable meal from the main ala carte menu. Interesting conversation in Cantonese. Good fast service and wide range of dishes. Most certain to go there again and very soon.
