Went for Dim Sum Sunday brunch. Limited selection, but what was offered was good. Wouldn't really rave about it and probably should have just ordered off the menu. Maybe Dim Sum just isn't our thing?

This was a new place that we had to try, first of all because we love the owner’s other, Vietnamese, restaurant elsewhere in Palm Springs, But also because we had heard so much good stuff about RolyChinese.

It was a fantastic experience in every regard: not just the unique, inventive, tasty food, but also the quality of the wait staff as well as the maître d’ (which that evening happened to be a wonderful brother and sister team!) We’ll be back – – often.

My guests and I had a wonderful dinner! Service was smooth, efficient, and attentive. Cuisine was top notch, artfully crafted and so tasty. I had the hot and sour soup and Sichuan chicken dumplings. The braised short rib fried rice is a favorite too. We were seated in the back in a very attractive quiet area. My new favorite Asian restaurant in Palm Springs. ❤

Went there for a Saturday lunch with a friend. Had Kung pao chicken and green curry chicken. Both were very tasty and well cooked. They allowed us to adjust the ‘heat’ level of the food to our liking. I will be back soon.

Our 4th visit and we continue to enjoy. Our only request is that the potstickers are less gummy. Love Roly and a great addition to our neighborhood. Panang Noodles is one of our favs, wonton soup great flavor and a wonderful share item.
The wine wall is beautiful but the 4 tables behind the red curtain makes is feel like we are seated in the overflow room. Please open the red curtain we saw 3 tables last night go back and then come forward to be reseated.
Try Roly and hang at the bar also, nice atmosphere great addition to uptown.

The restaurant is fairly new and is still hitting its stride a bit

Went on Sunday evening for dinner. They have a dim sum menu on Sunday, we ordered pork buns and chicken dumplings- both very good.

For entrees, we ordered dan dan noodles (noodles overcooked and slightly over-sauced, but flavorful), chicken tamari noodles (noodles way over cooked and the dish was a bit mushy) and lastly kung pao chicken (perfect crispy but tender chicken and a nice sauce and vegetables- probably the best version of this classic I’ve ever had)

The service was competent, if not overly friendly- they also seem very focused on their tablets instead of making any eye contact.

The place looks great and with some small improvements will be fantastic

We will go back again

I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant since I love Pho 533. I was there with three friends and after the hostess seated us we sat there for nearly 20 minutes before anyone came to the table. Our server ended up being very nice which helped. We all ordered cocktails and we were happy with those. Two of us ordered the hot and sour soup and the other two ordered the wonton soup and both soups were very good. I ordered the filet mignon entrée and was very disappointed. It was extremely salty, so much so that I questioned if there was MSG in it. The vegetables and the beef were cooked just right but the sauce was so excessively salty that I did not enjoy it. I drank a lot of water with my meal and before going to bed and I still woke up in the middle of the night extremely thirsty. Hopefully, this restaurant can improve some service issues and tone down the seasoning. This is the third restaurant to go into this very nice space and I like the changes they made.

We are fans of 533 their other restaurant. Very nice atmosphere in the former DISH. All of the DIM SUM we had and the main courses were excellent except for The Hong Kong Beef- the beef was very tough and returned for another dish. I had Shanghai Noodles- was ver y good except for the giant pieces of tough beef which I didn't return. I have always liked the beef dishes @ 533 so this was a surprise.

Roly China Fushion is a great destination for lovers of Asian food. Our party of four had drinks, dim sum, hot & sour soup & four main dishes. We brought home quite a bit of leftovers. Except for the rather bland Panang Noodles, all were outstanding - fresh & with surprising & interesting twists. We particularly loved the pork pot stickers & the Dan Dan Noodles. The green curry was also great. My only complaint is the small table for 4 people - we all felt cramped. Will specify a booth next time.

Only tried the dim sum which was disappointing. The “skin” was too thick and doughy. However flavor was good. I am use to more variety at Chinese dim sum places.

It was good. The issue was we had a reservation and they sat us back by the toilets. When they sat us they told us" Don't worry, we won't ignore you back here" Really cruddy table. Ruined the ambiance of our very expensive dinner. The food was great, service was great, just a awful place to be seated.

The two dishes we had were each very one-note in flavor. The curry chicken barely had a hint of curry and nothing else; the chicken itself was tender. The beef and broccoli again had minimal flavor. The broccoli was cut up into very tiny pieces, almost minced. Service was excellent but given the $60 bill including tip for just two dishes was definitely not worth the price. While we understand they are only open one month, they need to step up the flavors and elevate the tastes or they won’t have many repeat customers.

First time to this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The decor and ambience are very nice and the service was very good and attentive. My only issue was the sound level of the music. We asked to be seated in the back, otherwise conducting a conversation would have been difficult.

I took my best friend here for her birthday. Comfortable seating and upbeat music. The menu is extensive and hard to make a choice as everything was so appealing. We began with Shishito peppers and the flavor was so complex and enjoyable, a great start! We chose a vegan entree, the baby bok choy and mushrooms and the miso glazed seabass. Beautifully flavored and perfect textured rice. Every bite was so pleasing, and a great pair to the hitching post pinot noir from their list. Great Service, attentive staff. We loved every detail.

Have been there twice and have tasted almost everything on the menu. I'm thrilled to say that Palm Springs has added another great space for foodies to eat. I could just go alone for the Dim Sum, but the rest of the menu is excellent as well. I still can count on two hands the number of quality restaurants in PS, but slowly but surely that list is growing. I would love the see that number grow above 10.

some items are quite good (especially seabass satay and the steamed fish full dinner), some items are just average - good quality, more than generous portions, just nothing exceptional (dumplings, bowls, rice dishes). service is great. fun atmosphere but VERY VERY loud when the house is full. It’s become immediately popular.

Food was mediocre. The Dim Sum bears no resemblance to actual Dim sum. Curry was almost inedible. The Kung pao chicken was good. Pricey, 200 for party of 4 with no alcohol. We were seated in a back area of the restaurant separated from the main area by a curtain which was just weird. Overall disappointing experience. So many better dining options in Palm Springs

What a great new addition to the restaurant scene in Palm Springs. We started with Dim Sum and then moved on to Kung Pao Chicken, Beef and Broccoli and the Braised Short Rib Fried Rice. Everything was very good but the Fried Rice was outstanding. Let's hope this establishment makes it in a location that has been cursed by it's previous owners. Thank you for a nice evening with friends. We will definitely be back. Also want to try the lunch menu. At $11.07 per person, thats a good value for good quality fresh food.

There is a great vibe in this new restaurant. The prices are fair, and the food is good. While it is called China Fusion, the food was different from regular Chinese food....but the flavors weren't that special. I still prefer the unique flavors of Thai food to their food.

The restaurant had already seated several parties when we arrived at 6 and when we left over 90 minutes later, it was full. I would recommend making a reservation. The soup was excellent but was served lukewarm and returned. The food was fabulous, however, the manager told us that they had run out of a lot of things over Pride weekend and the waiter did not know this (nor much about anything in the restaurant). There was an item that was not included in my main dish. The manager listened and sent us some mochi for desert. I will definitely go back in a month or two after they’ve had a chance to smooth out the glitches and the wait staff is better trained.

I was really worried about going there after reading some of the recent ratings on Yelp. But we wanted to try it and make up our own mind. The food is very good. The eggplant is truly outstanding. The garlic noodles were 'meh' - nothing special at all. Dumplings/potstickers were very good. Service was pretty much okay - the place was packed on a Monday night - so it was a bit slow. I would go there again.

Our experience was, well - we anticipated probably not good.
It was worse than expected.
Not Chinese Fusion - actually, almost no flavors of any Asian food (except the white Jasmine rice was good, no brown, tho).
Pricey and greasy. Really greasy. Pricey.
The only thing that “filet mignon” was was overcooked.
Tasted two good prawns in the greasy Shanghai noodles.

This place needs work. A lot of work and quickly.
Currently it has no idea what its doing in the kitchen.

To start the circular high top tables were to small for two dinners let alone four dinners. The spaced seemed ample to accommodate larger tops. Food was good, but did not meet up to the price point. Service was the winning point of the experience.

We wanted to check out Roly since it is located in the space previously occupied by Dish Creative Cuisine, our all time favorite restaurant in PS, and most recently, Alebrije Mexican restaurant, which didn't last long. The remodeled space is nice, if not very Asian. The service was great. The menu is almost overwhelming! Asian influences abounded. We ordered 4 dishes, all of which were 4 or 5 star. My favorite was the Beef Short Rib Fried Rice. Well worth your time if you can afford it.
