We have been visiting this establishment for over 25 years.
The ambience has a charming and elegant effect , the Food is very flavorful and Wine list superb.
Perhaps the best attribute of Rainbow Palace is consistency which is hard to achieve in the restaurant industry and therefore we have been referring friends and clients for several years. Overall excellent and we place it in our top three restaurants in Broward county.

The service was outstanding . The food absolutely awesome, however the portions were a little smaller than last year. The wine list us impressive and there is limited choices of wines below 45 $. This is the best place if you love Chineese food, exceptional service with a unique ambiance. You want to impress your wife, your girlfriend or your friends, go out for dinner at the Rainbow Palace on Oakland in Pompano Beach.

This is a really pretty restaurant in a strip mall. Outside it's not very impressive but inside it's beautifully decorated and inviting. The menu is limited and pricey; it's not your typical Chinese restaurant menu even though it has some traditional standbys like fried rice and spring rolls and they offer some traditional sauces. Even so, they do not have offerings like tofu. That was a surprise to me. Nevertheless, it turned out that the food was just wonderful in all respects. We ordered an eggplant dish, the special fish of the day in a ginger/white sauce, and a veggie fried rice. Each dish was better than the next. Wow.

My only caution would be to understand that this is an upscale restaurant and to know going in that it won't be inexpensive. If you are looking for a special occasion, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent authentic Chinese food always prepared to your request. Rainbow Palace is very accommodating for health or spiciness requests. The Won Ton soup is excellent. The chicken dishes are all succulent, and tender. The orange beef was moist, yet crispy. Always the perfect venue for entertaining or a romantic night out.

There aren't many good Chinese restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale so I was pleased to learn about the Rainbow Palace, which was recommended by friends. The dining room is lovely and the tables are comfortable and not crowded. The south sea curried scallops were particularly good. The crispy duck grand marnier was flavorful but the duck was anything but crispy. The shrimp and lobster dumplings were a nice appetizer. They offered hot and sour soup, which is a favorite of mine. This rendition was different than any other that I've had. The broth was clear and velvety but overall I did not prefer this soup over others that I have had. The prices are high and I suggest that you check the menu on their website. We had four soups, one app, three entrees, cocktails and beer and the bill came to about $300 for four of us, including tip.

Family Fun
We had a family dinner with our 5 adult kids & spouses at Rainbow Palace. They had a lovely table reserved for us in their beautiful private dining room. Our excellent waiter I believe his name was David was over the top professional & an amazing salesman! The many appetizers were tremendous ,wonton soup was blah , crispy orange steak ( my boys loved) and I wish we were offered the curry rice leftovers to take home.( my favorite) (Delicious!)It was a pretty pricey night probably because we all ordered drinks however the personalized service & appetizers were definitely worth it. The desserts were also enjoyed by all.

We’ve been there before and it was always an outstanding experience. This time was different. The food was good, not the excellent that we’ve been used to. The served entree plates did not show the care they had previously. The Server was attentive at the outset. As soon as they got busier, we never saw him again. Had to ask others to get him, which included our asking for the check. He did not come back for it until we asked others to get him - twice...and it was a very hefty amount.
