We have not been here for many, many years. Our son wanted to go for his birthday, as he goes to school near here, and sometimes gets lunch. I will say that Chinese is not my favourite cuisine, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The service was great, very friendly and the food was of very good quality. Portion sizes were excellent. All in all, a lovely evening was spent here. Restaurant was super busy which is a good sign as it was a Sunday evening.

Hi visited here on Friday has always been a decent restaurant but we were hugely disappointed this time.
Dropped in quality massively nothing was felt to be fresh and all frozen and processed food. Beef in blackbean sauce was like steak in gravy with uncooked peppers, al denote is fine but these were awful. Lemon chicken was processed meat with lemon sauce poured over the top, missed the prawn crackers, lettuce wraps for two literally one wrap each, pancakes with duck 6 in total, prawn toast a quarter slice of bread each! Come on summer palace think about it that is half a slice of bread for 2 persons, not enough pancakes to use duck and salads in, no prawn crackers £65 for two persons is pretty steep £3.30 for a small bottle of beer and frozen and processed food/s. We will think long and hard before returning again! Staff are pleasant enough though.....

We went here on a Saturday evening following recommendation from friends. We weren't disappointed. The staff were very attentive, and the food was excellent. There were four of us and we chose the set menu - D - really tasty. A good choice of starters, duck pancakes and a main. certainly didn't have room for a pud. We will definitely be returning
