Had delivery from Crystal Palace again, and it didn't fail to impress. The Fried Rice was really tasty, and my favourite, the steamed shrimp dumplings were excellent. Reasonable price, good flavour, filling. We will definitely be back.

We have ordered delivery from Crystal Palace enough to speak to its quality. The food is consistently good depending on your standards (that is to say I've had better Chinese around the world but in my opinion this is Waterloo's best option). My biggest pet...More

I was in the mood for Chinese today so I decided to try out the all-you-can-eat lunch buffet for $8.95 at Crystal Palace in Uptown Waterloo. It was good enough that I went back for seconds and thirds. There was a decent variety of dishes....More
