Disappointing visit. Went for a dinner for a friend’s event and the food was mediocre. I expected more and it was expensive for the amount of food we ordered. Would not return here.

This is by far the worst Chinese food I've ever eaten in my entire life. The scallop soup was way too salty and very thin in flavor. The crispy noodle Seafood dish had very little seafood and the noodles were not even crispy. We had...More

This was our first visit to the Koi Palace and it was for a wedding reception. It looked nice but smelled really fishy. Even though it's a Seafood restaurant, it should not smell that fishy. The partitions between the party rooms were very thin. During...More

I guess if you are going to a seafood place, then get seafood. Don't ever get the "peking duck". Worse peking duck I've ever had. Never have I ever seen peking duck dish presented the way they do. They do not slice the duck at...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
