“Wonderful Chinese Seafood”
Review of Ocean Palace

Ocean Palace
Ranked #175 of 753 Restaurants in Albany
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 May 2017

A very simple place with the best Chinese seafood and among the best overall Chinese food in the Capital District. This is the antithesis of fancy, but the food is so good. The chef/owner Peter Chan ran the earlier instance of Ocean Palace which was just west of Everett Road on Central. The atmosphere is simpler here, but the food is just as fresh and authentic as before.

The service was good and the atmosphere was pleasant . Staff is very friendly. The food is out of this world . Peter chef/owner goes out of his way to make each dish just the way you like it .The menu has many different dishes and the prices will not break the bank.

Although Ala Shanghai is probably the best Chinese in the area, their food tends to be a bit rich for us. If you want perfectly prepared, creative and authentic Chinese (travel to the Golden Unicorn in NYC, or) try this humble place near the foot of Central Avenue. Their Chinese New Year special menu that just ran for a month was just wonderful. I think I ordered the twice cooked pork 5 times! Over the several years we have enjoyed this chefs delights, we have yet to try something on the menu that wasn't delicious. Highly recommended! Because many of their customers from this neighborhood are low income, prices are low.

Though small and not exactly impressive from the outside, the food inside is so fresh and authentic. Peter, the chef and owner, is truly a master at his preperation of authentic Chinese cuisine. Ever dish is freshly prepared with only the very best ingredients. His sauces are divine and can easily be tailored to your liking (hotter, milder, sweeter, etc.) M husband and I eat there about four times a month and sometimes even do some takeout in between. One cannot go wrong either eating in or taking out a fabulous meal. Treat yourself! But, the prices are VERY reasonable so you can treat yourself often.
