Wow, surprised to read so many bad reviews. I can only imagine the customers writing were overly picky because this is a great little restaurant. The menu is varied, the prices are reasonable, the staff and service is fast, friendly and polite - they take time to talk with you and are knowledgeable about the menu and the area too. The decor is in keeping with traditional China or what we would expect.
I lived in Kato Stalos near Platanias for many months and China Palace is a welcome and tasty break from Greek food. The duck is a speciality but I tried lots of dishes on the menu and all were perfect for me and colleagues I took to China Palace were always dead pleased with the food.
Try and get a street front seat. It was always interesting to see Plantanias from another perspective whilst eating a really well cooked Chinese meal.....doubt the hater comments, this is a place you'll visit again.

Your average chinese restaurant, food was ok however nothing fancy. Service might have been a little bit better but its the end of season so the local staff was probably a bit worn out.

There are two Chinese restaurants in Platanias with the same owner and menu. The other Red Dragon is by far the best. China Place has from bad to decent food.

Having read other reviews, I agree the staff were very nice. The food, however, was awful. The selection of starters was horrid, the duck just about edible although overpriced. When the main courses came they were difficult to distinguish from one another. What did stand out was the sweet and sour "pork", which proved very difficult to find in the balls of batter and enclosed goo. Complimentary desert was a nice touch but failed to rescue a terrible and expensive meal.

Dear Guest,

Naturally, we would like to accommodate the taste buds of every one of our clients. Unfortunately a 100% satisfaction rate is not always possible, although based on feedback (both on trip advisor and on location), we come pretty close. We are sorry that the food was not to your taste. As far as pricing goes, all prices are clearly listed on the menu next to each item. We also provide a booklet of photographs by which one can gauge the portion sizing.

As far as your over-all unpleasant experience, I personally make it a point to ask each and every customer if every thing is O.K. with their meal. Had you been more vocal about your dissatisfaction at the time, perhaps we could have done something more for you.

Thank You,

Patricia
