About
This is a restaurant that has consistantly produced stunning meals with flavours you simply will not believe. I have visited this restaurant 8 or 9 times over as many years and have not had a single bad experience. If you want to try something different and are a little wary of doing that in case you get a bad meal, at the Harbour Palace you can order anything on the menu and KNOW you will enjoy the experience. A simply sensational Chinese restaurant. Book if you expect to be late... they DO get very busy but still offer fast table service as well as take away.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Whenever I am in Coffs Harbour, I always try to either dine in or get take away from here. I haven't been disappointed yet. This time in town I ate in and even thought it was busy, the service was prompt and friendly. I loved my meal as usual. couldn't eat it all.

What a Gem ! It’s hard to find a good Chinese restaurant these days but this one is highly recommended. It has a reasonable menu and serves well presented, tasty and good size meals. Probably not the fanciest restaurant you’ll dine at but this one is well laid out and clean. The staff are Happy and helpful, nothing seems to be to much trouble. If you’re in Coffs and up for a tasty meal, give it a go, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

We loved the service as our family of 7 were served in such a friendly manner. We enjoyed the food, it was filling for the kids and tasty for the adults, and price of this cozy restaurant was reasonable too.

Unfortunately we ordered the San Choy Bow and like the author of “Awful food” we couldn’t even recognise the dish, if it wasn’t for the iceberg lettuce we would have thought it was something totally different. It was made with little chunks of what looked like leftover Christmas ham, there was no pork mince or water chestnuts, just slimy sauce with reheated frozen veggies (not regular Chinese vegetables). We also had Combination Short Soup which was equally disappointing. There were no Chinese vegetables just good old Aussie cauliflower and broccoli that tasted like they came from a frozen packet. The sliced chicken and BBQ pork were chewy, there were no prawns and the liquid was almost tasteless very salty. When asked if we enjoyed the meal, we told them we didn’t and the lady on the register could only say “Didn’t the waitress tell you the San Choy Bow was made with ham?” Well no, she didn’t, but in any case it was dreadful and I’ve eaten in many Chinese restaurants and I’ve never seen it made with chunks of ham. We had 10 people at our table, all with different meals and only one person thought their meal was ok. We certainly won’t be going back again.

When I lived there many years ago it was the best chinese Colin use to run it. Visiting Coffs recently nade sure we dropped in and were very dissapointed. slow service mainly only concentrating on takeaway service maybe it taste better takeaway. We ordered a range of dishes and dissapointed with all. we always over order and ask for doggy bags but we left 50 per cent of the food behind.

We ordered take away over the phone & got it exactly as we ordered in a reasonable time frame. The spring rolls were good I ordered spicy pork ribs which was also ok. However the fried rice was dry & tasteless maybe prepared well before we also ordered garlic king prawns they too also lacked taste. The honey chicken was ok Pretty disappointed for the price and over all expectation We have eaten there before but the last 2 times disappointed Kris

I always go here every time I come up there, however I was really disappointed with the meal, it was watery it had no taste, it was supposed to be curry. We were told a “new chef”. Doesn’t live up to past experiences.Service was very quick though. Won’t be going back.

I used to live in Coffs for about 8 years and this became a staple for takeaways. So much so that it has always been my benchmark for all other Chinese food wherever I have moved across Australia. While I have eaten in before, most of my experiences were take away. Dine-in was always good too although it is not the greatest internal decor you will ever see! However i had not visited for over 10 years so coming back I was anticipating picking up some dishes, especially the boneless lemon chicken. I was horrified at some of the recent reviews and when we were all getting takeaway on the first night at the hotel I steered everyone away and towards another restaurant while I ordered from Harbour Palace "just in case". My dish was great! I was relieved! Just as good as i had expected and no long wait. Feeling confident, we all ordered from there a few nights later. All the dishes were good. No skimpy portions, all good sized. Very flavoursome and aromatic. There was a comment alluding to me hiding the place from them on the previous occasion! So, while I am sure other people's experiences and expectations may differ, my two experiences were great and I will hotly look forward to any other chance of coming this way (hopefully not another ten years away though!)

As a Coffs Harbour local we have enjoyed This place for over 20 years. Our recent visit was very disappointing, something must have changed as the food was terrible, unfortunately we won’t be back in a hurry. On a good note, as usual the wait staff service was great. The poor reviews seem to have started this March as list below and would like to see them get back to there previous best. Must be the chef..

Short soup ok but rest of the meal was tasteless and awful, not fresh meat. Ordered San Choy Bow and I didn't even recognize what it was, a runny sauce mixed with cut up squares of chicken and ham (see pic) - this is not San choy bow!!! Fried rice was completely flavorless and our other dishes had a lot of oil floating on top. Felt ill after eating.
