6 of us met up for our annual meal here and we weren't disappointed. Food was good, portion size of mains was a bit small, but we just ordered more. Drinks were a bit expensive. Would thoroughly recommend and am surprised it is not busier.

I don't often eat here, mainly due to having small children, but this is the only Chinese takeaway we go to in Sittingbourne because the food is consistently great and the staff are lovely. I haven't had a bad meal here in the 5 years I've been living here.

Lovely birthday meal for me and Hubby last night. That's the third or fourth time we've been to the Water Palace, and never a rat in sight! Delicious food, beautifully cooked. Decent price (expensive drinks but that's fairly standard with buffets), friendly enough staff (although felt a bit watched at times, as we were the only ones in there and... More

We had a meal with family including 2 children (one 2years old the other 10months) ordered our drinks and then ordered starters after a short time the mountain of food arrived! Everything was hot and delicious. We had more from the starter menu followed by the automatic crispy duck. The service was lovely and friendly can't wait to go back!... More

Food is Great Eating in but not Great Delivery. Food gets mushy. When we Eat in the Restaurant the Food is Second to None.

Fantastic food here. They do an all you can eat buffet at about £18 per head. A good price if you're exceptionally hungry. It's all cooked to order, so you order your appetiser and duck pancakes and after that, order your main. They refuse to serve if you don't eat all of each dish, which is fair enough. Just make...
