We are never disappointed with the food from the Fine Palate. Every time we either eat in or get a take-away we are always satisfied with the meal provided here. One of our most favourite eating establishments in Dundee.

Telephoned in an order at 5.30pm was told to collect at 6.15pm arrived at 6.15pm to chaos, waited until 7.15pm to be told they had messed up my order!!!! Lady with yellow rubber gloves back and forward from kitchen, guy serving at the take away counter kept having to go help cook, another lady serving admitted she had ony popped in to pick her her tea and was now helping serve at the tables. 7.20 decided not to bother with this total joke. It's a pity cos the food is usually good but the service or lack of it is a shocker!!!! Get more staff or you will lose regular customers.

The Fine Palate is one of the finest Chinese Restaurants I have been to. They serve the single best dish of Chinese Cuisine I have had the privilege to sample. That is they're Hot & Sour Soup. As an architecture student in Fundee this dish is as memorable as doing laps of the Liar Bar. It's hot and given time will dissolve it's polystyrene container. The rest of their food is also excellent.

Waiter was keen to rearrange the restaurant for a party expected later - furniture moving constantly. Food presented by what appeared to be the cleaner in dirty overalls. Food was of very poor quality.

We returned to the Fine Palate - twice! - after a gap of nearly 20 years, when it used to be THE restaurant for our group of (mostly Chinese) students at Dundee Uni.

Very little had changed, including (exactly??) the same menu and apparently staff too..all good for nostalgic reminiscing.

The food remains very good, and while certainly a westernised menu, everything always freshly cooked to order. The hot and sour soup is especially good, but we enjoyed all the dishes we tried, despite generally being more used to traditional Chinese food.

Service was friendly and reasonably quick and all at a reasonable price. We'd definitely recommend this restaurant.
