We LOVED the food, digested it so well ( we woke up saying we all felt great), and found it to be very reasonably priced. The food was so good we didn’t care so much about other details (the table wasn’t fully set when we sat/ some delays in brining food). We were there for a night and very happy!

Best food I had all week in Palm Springs. Great flavors. We were seated outside by the pool so the ambiance wasn't all that great. Perhaps they could add some greenery or big potted plants/trees if they are going to use the pool as a seating area. Great food and service!

Had a wonderful dinner outside by the pool. The dim sum and Coconut Shrimp were amazing. By far the best Chinese/Asian restaurant in the Valley.

Service not great. Waiters are in polite .No one around when you need then poolside dining. Not enough heat lamps and most of them don’t work I never had this experience at Roly fusion. No apologies from manager on duty

Good food. Of course, ambiance around the outdoor poor on a chilly night would have been better had the attitude of the waiter been better.
When asked for a working heat lamp, he said “NO”. A simple sorry but no other lamps available would have been more congenial.
I would recommend this restaurant for takeout

Awful, made reservation in advance to sit by the pool in the back and was seated out on the bar street facing 111. Couldn’t have been more uncomfortable and unappealing.
Food good but traffic and fumes not good.

Went to visit a friend up in the Palm Springs area and made some last minute reservations. They were super accommodating, even though we showed up a bit late. Dining is right by the pool and creates a really cool, only in Palm Springs, type of ambiance. We shared a couple of dishes (Mongolian Beef and Pineapple Fried Rice) and both were excellent! Service was impeccable, we never went without freshly topped off waters and refreshments and our server was friendly and had a nice personality. Overall, we had a great dining experience!

Consistently one of the best new restaurants in Palm Springs - especially while leveraging partnership with neighboring hotel to provide outdoor poolside and rooftop seating for evening dining. I have taken six different groups of friends visiting from out of town to this restaurant and each one of them has enjoyed the excellent food, great service and outdoor dining.

We are sure Roly Fusion is a great place during regular times. The seating is awkward during Covid. We had a great server/bar tender and the music was really fun and upbeat. The food was good but not much “fusion”.

The server Jacob, host Sara, manager Tara and busser Carmen made everything amazing. It was my anniversary and it was a night we will remember forever.

We ordered lobster dim sum, pad see ew, Mongolian beef and Shanghai noodle.

Everything was perfect.

The pool side dining was great and the Thai basil lemon drop and wine selection was too die for.

Cannot wait to return.

What a great addition to the Palm Springs-area dining scene. The food is great, but to keep going the restaurant needed to figure out outdoor dining - and they did. The have placed seats around the hotel pool, and it works just fine. But you're not there for the ambience, you're there for the delicious food. Yes, it's Chinese-oriented, but the flavors and originality of some of the dishes was wonderful. Try at least one item from the dim sum menu. (We had the crispy pork, which was a mix of crunch and moist at the same time, with flavors bursting in your mouth.) My wife and I shared two items from the "favorites" menu, both of which were incredibly good - the Crispy Coconut Shrimp (might be too sweet for some people, though) and Mandarin Chicken. Both were good portions, and even without dessert, we had leftovers. If you like Chinese food that's innovative and impeccably prepared, I recommend Roly China Fusion.

Unfortunately, thus is the 2nd time in the past week that we have had a bad experience here. There seems to be either understaffing or disorganization or both going on, resulting in long waits every step of the meal, having to ask for status of the meal, etc. Food is always great, but we won't be returning in the foreseeable future and hope that the situation is rectified.

The food was wonderful. The service was exceptional considering they had to travel so far from the kitchen to the rooftop dining area. Our server was very pleasant. We will definitely be back.

We were a bit disappointed overall. The pool side seating was not pool side and the tables were really tiny especially since this the kind of place where you want to order different dishes to share. While the waitress was very pleasant, the service was extremely slow. After we gave our drinks order, we waited at least 15 minutes to get the drinks. Some of the food took an hour before it arrived. The management did acknowledge this and comped us some appetizers. My impression is that the tables are upstairs and really far from the kitchen and bar so this may account some of the issues. Also there were no heat lamps and it was getting a little chilly. I think if they want to continue with outdoor seating, they need to invest in some heat lamps.

On a friends recommendation for vegan options, we tried Roly. Amazing service, cute outdoor seating ( inside looks amazing once everyone is allowed back in.)
We enjoyed our dinner.
Ordered the shishito peppers for an app 🌶!
Mongolian Tofu which was good, I assumed the rice noodles were more pasta like, but they were those fried white hard ones, I think the dish would have been better with soft noodle or just none and add rice. Altho the seasoning was very good, scallions cooked perfectly.
The Szechuan Brussels Sprouts were so good , my partner who normally hates them ate 1/2 the bowl! We also got the sweet & spicy cauliflower + tofu , and the Baby Bok choy within Shrooms. The Yuzu Gimlet was perfect.
