This is one of my favorite restaurants to eat in NorCal. It's worth waking up early and standing in-line for dim sum hours because each dish tastes so fresh and delicious. Dinner time is also great time to eat here because their seafood, especially the...More

We were here for a friend's birthday celebration. We had a set banquet menu. The food was excellent and so was the service. The atmosphere was also very nice, not the noisy setting so often found in some other Chinese restaurants.

If you're ever in the area, this restaurant is a must-try! Koi Palace has the best roasted duck I've ever had. There's a huge selection of food to choose from the menu, so I highly recommend ordering just 1 order of everything you want to...More

Hugh seafood tanks right at the entrance is a good sign that they do good seafood, also famous for their dim sum lunches. A very large restaurant but always full. Service is average, well, i consider pretty given that it's a Chinese joint.

Consistent. Delicious. Authentic. Always packed with people yearning to taste the flavourful Chinese dishes. A perfect advice: an indication of good Chinese restaurant is to search for a packed, busy, filled with Chinese people- thats Koi Palace- even if its packed and busy , the...More

I like good Dim Sum and I like to take my family to Koi Palace at least once a month. I was born in Hong Kong and truly miss the delicious Dim Sum there. Dim Sum is more then just good Cantonese food, it is...More

We went to Koi Palace with high expectations grounded in nostalgia. We ate there years ago--back when it was the best dim sum to be had in the dim sum rich Bay Area. And Koi Palace of today does not measure up to Koi Palace...More

No hot pot. Dim sum during the day. You might be able to get a few selections of dim sum at dinner time if you ask; it all depends on how much was unsold during lunch time.

You may avoid gluten by staying with rice. Avoid wheat and flour dishes that are so common in dim-sum dishes such as BBQ pork buns, onion pan-cake, shiao-loun-pao, pot stickers, dumplings etc etc
