Dirty carpet, torn seats, the place looks worn out. Staff was attentive. Food on buffet was warm at best, including the cashew-less cashew chicken. Same food as what you would get at Pi's. Someone came out of the kitchen a couple of times, stirred up some food and returned. First time I've been here, I won't be back.

The area is slightly dark, but you get used to it. The seating is not overabundant, but adequate for groups of 20 or less.

We drove from Bay City on recommendation of a friend. Food was quite tasty, service was excellent. My pet peeve: when an otherwise 'classy' restaurant with good food gives its customers really 'cheap' metal tableware (knife, fork, spoon) to eat with. Kind of cheapens the entire dining experience. It was Dollar-Store quality, or maybe less. C'mon, owners. Buck up a... More

The food was average. My fried rice was fairly white with hardly any vegetables in it. There was water in the soap in the bathroom? Each pump was water, you could see the soap floating on top. The desire for money has changed this organization into a very poor version of chinese food

The food here is amazing. I recommend ordering off menu rather than choosing the buffet, so that you have the freshest dish possible. My favorite is the ginger beef. The crispy sesame chicken is also good - but obviously not as good for you. Unfortunately, they have done little with the interior of the restaurant over the years. There is... More

A good place if you are hungry as the buffet is pretty reasonable "American" style Chinese. This time the dishes were a little spicier than normal which was good. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant and good service.

Literally the best oriental food that I've ever tried. It's not your typical Chinese buffet. The lunch meals are superb, and run until 3pm. They almost all come with fried rice, egg drop soup, and crab cheese. My favorite is beef and green pepper. And did I mention the decor? Very relaxing and vintage feeling.

My husband and I tried this. He loves fried wantons. He liked them. I thought they were a little over cooked. They were kind of difficult to bite into without scratching the inside of your mouth. Forget breaking them in half. Too overcooked! Our meals were great though. You get a very large portion and can choose plain or fried... More

I love the food at China Palace, every time I'm in Midland I make a point to stop in for lunch or dinner. They have a wide variety of food available on the buffet, but I always order off the menu because it gives me enough for 2 meals. I recommend their fried wanton appetizer, it's very good. The service... More
