Very Poor Buffet
June 13, 2014

Arrived for the buffet at 7pm on a Friday night, half of the buffet trays were empty (all the seafood was gone) thinking they would refill at least some of them we stayed for dinner. None of the trays were refilled even after we asked the waitress. The food that was left was in poor condition, picked over and cold.... more

Good food
May 28, 2014

The food is usually always good, lots for the price, we had take out, so it was delivered, my husband reheated his food, mine was ok. I called and they said a discount next order, first time this has happened but we do live far

Sadly not as good as it used to be
April 19, 2014

Went here a few weeks back hoping to have a fresh amount of food to choose from considering it is a buffet and there was hardly anything and this was during dinner rush time. Had a hard time eating because of the very loud screaming in the kitchen. really questioning whether I will go back again... more

Excellent food allways and great daytime buffett
April 14, 2014

Allways when I think of a chinese buffet to go to I think of China Palace. There sign says best buffet in town. Price is ok at 13.95 for dinner but if you go before 5pm you get 10 percent off early bird special. Also if you go between 11:00am -2:30pm Mon-Saturday you can get a nice selection buffet for... more

Excellent buffet with great variety and quality food
March 22, 2014

We had the buffet here and dined in. Not the most modern setting but it was clean and neat and there was an absolutely excellent selection of food. Food was being replenished when needed.
I had two helpings at the senior rate. Very good value. I have to say again I felt the food was very good quality, not all... more

Run away
March 10, 2014

Don't believe their sign that says they are the best buffet , this place is one of the dirtiest places I have been in this part of the world. Dried food on most of the "clean" plates and cutlery. And just try to find a clean table. The owner lady acts like she does not care about much except getting... more

Needs improvements
October 29, 2013

We went several times to this Buffet,. but not impressed with the place last time.
Very busy, very slow service , and food trays slow being refilled.. This was the Dinner buffet, quality has gone down and price has gone up, and not very clean either.
We will go elsewhere.

Chinese food at it's best
September 21, 2013

China Palace is the best restaurant Chinese food there is in Penticton!
We rarely go in to the restaurant for food but instead order for take out or delivery.
They are always very busy and it doesn't seem to matter what time of day or night .... They're busy!

Can't beat this buffet
September 09, 2013

In our travels around North America we have been to many Chinese restaurants, the China Palace can't be beat. The selection, while not the biggest, is certainly one of the best. They have seafood dishes, turkey, and a good assortment of desserts on top of the hot, fresh and constantly replenished standard Chinese dishes. The area is older in style,... more

Dirty
September 08, 2013

Spent $40 and it was not well spent. Food was cold and lack of it, place was dirty, had no service (staff was to busy chatting to each other). Won't be going back and will not recommend it to anyone.

Dirty
April 17, 2013

We entered expecting a quick meal and opted for the smorg but were nervous about eating at the China Palace when we had a closer look. The restaurant itself was very dirty and the food lacked flavour (we ordered from the menu thinking it would be a safer choice). Our server showed no enthusiasm at all (took forever to appear... more

Good Chinese Buffet
April 01, 2013

Had a craving for Chinese food after returning from 6 months in Palm Springs. This restaurant is very clean and has a very good choice of items on their buffet menu. We arrived around 6pm, they were putting out nice fresh food from the kitchen. They also had a good selection of western foods available as a nice selection of... more

Big Buffet, Nothing Fancy
February 13, 2013

Pretty average Chinese food for North Americans... everything was tasty, nothing unexpected or new. Chicken balls, sweet and sour pork, prawns, won ton soup, jello, all the old favourites.

Chines Buffet ....It used to be good
November 10, 2012

The first time we went everything was good, but each time we went it seemed to be going downhill. The food was no longer fresh and the service was below average. When I found myself chewing on a piece of stainless steel from a pot scrubber I complained to the waitress, who was extremely apologetic and said she would ask... more

Flavourless and greasy
October 01, 2012

This is one of the buffets where everything looks good, and there's lots of variety....but the sauces are bland, the fried food has more better than anything else, and there's not a single dish that I can really recommend.

Disappointed
July 22, 2012

Today I ordered delivery. The BBQ spareribs smelled and tasted like wet dog. The Hot and Sour soup smelled like mold and tasted like it was a week old. Maybe their refrigerator needs cleaning. Over all I wasted 50 hard earned dollars on food I had to throw out and a belly ache. My date was left hungry and disappointed... more

I've been to worse Chinese buffets but this is still not recommended
August 24, 2011

I've had the misfortune of dining at Chinese buffets that make China Palace look like Cafe TOO in Hong Kong. I actually saw a rat scurry across the buffet table at a Chinese buffet in Texas. However, that does not make the food or ambiance at this Penticton buffet any more recommended. I've only been there for lunch and the... more

Awful
July 14, 2011

I should have left as soon as the greeter barked "window" at my wife and I, apparently suggesting we should sit in the booth by the window. Decor was awful, food appalling, worst Chinese restaurant I've ever been to, and I've been to plenty.

The best place for Chinese buffet. I take the family there often.
We have tryed a number of buffet's, and none compare. This
one has a large selection of chinese food, a large selection of
salad's and a large selection of desert's. The food
is always fresh and always being changed. Two thumbs up from me
and my family.
