Always fine ingredients and preparation. Seafood specials and rack of lamb are extraordinary. Wait staff is all-pro.

Overall I liked it but few things bothered me. The food is very good, but pricy and small portions. The service is fine but did not appreciate the 5$ charge of Chinese tea I did not order and that they brought to our table as if it was complimentary. The decor is old, the place needs to be revamped. Not bad overall but not sure I would go back. There are better options in that area for Asian food.

I would give five stars, except our disappointment with desert. Only three choices were available and tey were cheap cakes, most likely, have been purshased from a supermarket.
It is better if no desert was offered in menu.
Otherwise, food was excellent

My all time favorite place. We have had our anniversary here for 10 years now. Owner is a great guy and runs a great place. The FOOD though! OMG!
Shrimp/ Lobster dumplings- spring rolls- crispy steak- shrimp Gwin Jim- Gran Mariner Scallops. House rice & mixed veggies. And the piece de resistance? Long time waiter Paul’s daughter makes the desserts and MY fave is the white mouse cake. It’s not cheap knife by any means. Figure around $100 per person by the time all is said & done but the absolute most lovely evening.

What I like less is those Knox like sauces maybe to Cantonese for me.
But I have to say that the duck grand marnier sauce is remarquable.
The service is professional and the atmosphere very nice.
They have a great wine list and the waiters know their jobs.

Excellent Chinese food. The meal was great as was the service. Pretty pricey for Chinese food but so is Mr. Chows. Although it is not Mr Chows the food is certainly the same caliber. Nice variety of foods to choose from and something for everyone.

Best Chinese food in South Florida. Outstanding service. they make you feel special and welcome. Classy and tasteful décor with white table cloths and tableside service. I drive over 45 minutes to go to this restaurant but well worth it.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is very succulent and delicious. The only thing that surpasses the food is the service. By the way, be sure to ask for Paul, but all the servers are fantastic! It’s a little pricey but treat yourself, it’s worth it. Don’t forget to look at all of the awards they have won hanging in the wall when you walk in. They earned it !

This was our 1st visit to Rainbow Palace and it won’t be our last. The food and service were terrific, it was the best Chinese food we have had in Sout Florida. It is a bit pricey so it’s a perfect place for a special occasion and great for lunch.

Embarrassing. Closed due to “plumbing issue.” No one called despite having a reservation scheduled. Walked up with my team for a business meeting to a paper sign on the door. No respect for their consumers. Don’t plan on giving them a second chance.

It was disappointing. An attractive restaurant but the food was ordinary. The appetizers especially seemed uninspired. The won ton soup was watery looking and bland. The ginger shrimp was bland. Needed soy sauce to give the sesame chicken some flavor. Service was casual and inattentive.

We were there to celebrate a special occasion and we enjoyed everything about the experience. We had an exquisite time and loved the atmosphere, the individual care (thank you, Paul), and the amazing food. The food!!!! We had the Orange Beef, Country Chicken, Hunan Salmon, Chef's Special Fried Rice, and the Eggplant. Everything was delicious. The wait staff is spot on and James recommended the best wine to accompany the meal. The Lychee Martini is tasty, too!

Service was great and the place is very nice. However, on the culinary side, it's a full ultra sweet experience. Both entrees tasted like cotton candy. I had orange Beef, described as mildly spicy, and I didn't have the willingness to finish it. My partner had Crispy Duck Grand Marnier. You cannot distinguish the difference between the two dishes. Soups were delicious. Appetizers were decent but still with a sweet taste. maybe an introduction to the entreees.

Nice restaurant and good food. They over cooked the Calamari this time so much they had to take it back. They promptly removed it from our bill with no hassle. Somewhat pricey for Chinese food. You have to pay to park on the left side of the parking lot so take your spare change for the parking meters. The right side is free parking if you can get one.
