I come here a few times a year for amazing Chinese food and music. Great for dates or entertaining friends from out of town.

I am not a huge fan of Chinese food in general, but this place is very good. The veggies were cooked to perfection, the potsticker appetizer was delicious, and the peppered steak was good. All the waiters were super attentive and polite, and the service was fast. There was a lot of choice on the menu, too, so definitely something... More

and authentic, still not overwhelmed. The music was also nice, a bit distracting though. Overall nice, still not overwhelming, the Szechuan pork meat texture was ok.

The extensive menu at The Palace is most impressive. Everything we ordered came promptly to the table and was very tasty. The Ginger Chicken was particularly good. Very nice atmosphere with live traditional music being played. We'll be back.

Consistently good Chinese food, dxcelkent dim sum on weekends. All good, except service ranges from excellent to "ask three times and hope he remembers". Hope you get good waiters

The Palace is one of those places one would never expect in a small mall. Although I felt the lighting was a little to bright, and the decor a little "much" it turned out to be a great place to unwind. The dishes we did sample were so above average, in fact we plan on going back. The service was... More

Their food is totally fantastic, but............over price and their portion is like enough to feed a 10 year old child. Although we've been there many times, still little portion. I suggest you either eat a little before you get there, or order several dishes for each person. Other then that, again their food is awesome.
