We were a party of eight...one being diabetic.
We booked for 7.45pm...23rd August 2014. We arrived in plenty of time to be kept waiting a further 25 minutes...our table was being cleared of occupants as they were just paying their bill.
We ordered within about 15 minutes. The starter came up very quickly. The restaurant was full by the way with another party of about twenty for a birthday as well as the other tables.
It took nearly two hours from sitting down to having the main course served. Three of our party had a two hour journey home. We had no time for dessert.
The food was...reasonable. It was all standard Chinese food. Nothing outstanding but certainly nothing bad. Just average. One comment was that the egg fried rice...a staple of any Chinese menu was tasteless. Also there was an overuse of MSG...nothing bad but the food could have been more spectacular.
If ever you are in Preston go to Tangs...the food is exceptional...once you have eaten there you will have been spoiled.
Chinese food should be a multitude of flavours and not just rely on the baulk standard that has become a definition in the UK.
The service was poor due to being over busy...a restaurant needs all the business it can get...but the Dragon Palace is also a take away...this place is the only chinese in the area and is bound to be popular...they were overwhelmed with business...not a bad complaint unless you are waiting for your meal for two hours. As a diabetic I needed to eat a bit quicker than that.
Also they do not seem to understand the meaning of large...when asking for a large diet coke.
To sum up the food was ok, the service was lacking and the experience was not great.
