We called one evening for a meal. I ordered the beef curry and rice. Portion size for the money was fine and was quite tasty. However, this is nothing at all like one could expect from a Chinese place in England for example. The sauce was in fact Malay so was very mild though quite tasty. The service was excellent....

After reading mix reviews we decided to visit this place as it always looked busy and we should try it for ourselves. On arrival staff were friendly and seated us quickly. As a family of 4 we ordered BBQ ribs, chicken and sweet corn soup and crab and prawn won ton. All the starters were fantastic especially the ribs which... More

Took a bus from Maleme to visit this restaurant but i was slightly dissapointed at the selection on the menu and the choice of wines which were very expensive. The food that we ordered came very quickly and was very tasty and the portions were ample.

Very good Chinese food. Have tasted better, but can really recommend this place. Been here several times. Never been disappointed! Nice staff and place! Fried banana with honey for dessert is a must!

The staff are trying really hard at this place and you would struggle, I think, to complain about the service. The food is just okay, generous portion but overall the China Palace should be better regarded than it is

Not an Asian person in sight, I should have known. If you like bland tasting Asian food, this ones for you. What really amazed me, is that it is full every night. After spending 3.5 years living in Asia, it was a big disappointment.

Me and my grandma was here last year eating lunch when we were walking in the streets. We were the first guests. The chef didnt come before a halv hour after the kitchen was opening.. The waiter was sitting with us without asking all the time while we were eating. He talked and flirted with me, he looked like 30+... More

Mario B, Manager at China Palace, responded to this review

Dear Kokkepiken, I am sorry for your negative experience, I find it very hard to believe a waiter would do that risking the reputation of the store and his/her job. All our staff has been in the store for many years and they are explicitly forbidden from interacting with the clients in this manner. Moreover, there is a cctv system... More
