Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was our third visit over the past few years. Ordered Crispy Duck starter which was lovely. For mains, a friend recommended the King Prawn Snowflake, which I had along with a side dish of noodles with beansprouts. I have to say, that was the most...tasty dishes I have ever had in a Chinese Restaurant. The only thing to point out was the floor towards and in the toilets was very slippy. Anyone with walking sticks needs to take particular care!More

Had our fourth meal here over a period of three or four years. It was just as good and it’s probably my favourite Chinese ever. So good. The best option I think is Banquet A which is £30 a head. Not cheap, but it’s all...delicious (especially the duck) and will fill you up. Good service and surroundings too.More

We had been told the Prawn Toast was amazing. So we went for a meal and the Prawn Toast was ordered with Seaweed and Chicken Satay. And it was just an amazing £11 but well worth it. The whole night from start to finish was...great. Sizzling Beef and mixed Chow mein . With a pint of Chinese beer and a bottle of Red the bill was £ 100 well worth every penny. Keep up the fantastic work well done Ocean Palace.😋😋😋😋More

We'd booked a table for 7pm on a Friday night. Only a handful of people dining as we walked in. Lovely warm welcome. Spacious dining rooms. Spotlessly clean. Great menu, something for everyone. The food was amazing! Restaurant almost full within the next hour. We...had the best night. Special mention to the young man who served our table - professional, discreet, excellent service. Thankyou. Highly recommended.More

First visit to the restaurant but will definitely return. Food was of a very high standard with prices in line with this. Sweet and sour chicken was delicious as was the Singapore noodles. Spicy hot and sour soup was delicious. Only negative was we found...the menu very difficult to read as it was dark print on a dark background… very unusual.More

My partner and i had a meal here on the 29th December 2023, and i can honestly say that it was one of the best Chinese meals that i have ever had. We both had the mixed starter that was superb, and the prawn toast...is the best that i have EVER had. My Szechuan chicken was superb and my partner loved her chilli chicken, it was very nice too. We both thoroughly recommend Ocean palace for anybody staying in the area.More

We visited this restaurant last night and i have to say as a we are massive Chinese Food fans this restaurant is definitely in the top 3 we have visited. We arrived around 7pm and although we hadn’t booked they were able to accommodate us....The Menu isn’t like most Chinese restaurants with big long lists of dishes. There was certainly more than enough choice and because of the selected dishes this means the food is cooked with care and perfection. We opted for the Hors d’oeuvre as a starter as we like to share and pick away. Large Spring rolls that were cooked to perfection. You could tell they had been cooked fresh and were packed with filling. Prawn Toast like we’ve never seen before. They were massive. Again so fresh and tasty. Spare Ribs to die for. The meat (and there was plenty on them) just fell of the bone and the sauce had a bit of a kick but was amazing. Then the best till last. The Chicken skewers in a satay sauce. Amazing. Chicken was so succulent and tasty and the sauce was probably the best Satay Sauce I’ve had. We opted for 3 different mains so we could all share, We got the Chicken Curry, Beef Chow Mien and the Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce on a skillet. 3 extremely large portions and all 3 were out of this world. We also got the fried rice and the Salt and Pepper Chips. I could go on all night raving about each dish but they will all be reviewed the same way. Each dish was cooked to perfection. The portions were that big we all left the restaurant absolutely stuffed yet with leaving food on the plate as there was that much. We live in Newcastle but i can say I would happily travel to Blackpool if only to visit and have a meal here. Amazing place.More
