    I'll start by saying that I've never written a bad review. This was terrible. We'll start with disorganized seating even with a reservation. Paper menus stapled two pages run off the copying machine. In ordering drinks I was brought over a Pepsi, 10 parts soda-water one part Pepsi syrup. When we finally had a waiter I asked about items I saw on line not on the two pieces of paper. He said it would take time to get those. We finally ordered, I then noticed the lack of Pepsi but didn't see the waiter again. After 25 minutes of nothing being brought to the table, my wife and I said that 5 more minutes and we're leaving. Finally our appetizer came as we saw a couple leaving that wasn't served. The food actually was not bad but we had to eat quickly to get to a show. I asked the server about the very light colored Pepsi. He said they were out of Pepsi. We got the check finally. Left cash on the table ( didn't want to wait with a credit card) and as we were leaving another customer was complaining to the (I think) manager. I remember what a nice Asian place this Restaurant was in the first years of the Palms. We will never go there again.

    Excellent food and VERY reasonably priced for a casino property. Our only complaint is that the service is very slow, albeit very friendly and polite. Perhaps they were just slammed and short-handed the night we went.

    I would give it no stars, but that isn't an option. Service was awful. We had a reservation and still took 20 minutes to be seated. Waited another 20 to see a server ordered and said we are going to a show. Waited another 25minutes. Never saw the food. We left at 7:45, grabbed a bite at the coffee shop and were 15 minutes late to our 8pm show. We will never return. Even if it was free!

    Our party of two arrived on time for our reservation to see a line of people with reservations waiting to be seated. After about 12 minutes, we finally are seated. 7 minutes later, we receive water. I ask two different people over a span of 10 minutes for a server. Finally, 33 minutes after the original reservation time do we order 2 appetizers and a noodle dish, as the server understood we were needling to get to a show and those could come out the fastest. About 15 minutes later, do we get 1 appetizer. Another 17 minutes later, we get the noodles (over an hour after original reservation). Finally get 2nd appetizer about another 6 minutes. My hangry young daughter and I scarf down the food in under 12 minutes while also paying the check. Food was okay for the setting, not great. Management needs to address the obvious timing and staffing issues to provide a more efficient and elegant experience to the setting. This was so frustrating and disappointing on what should have been a special night.

    Food was okay but wait staff was terrible. Took forever to get food. All you can eat hot pot took 3 hrs to finish because food came slow. Even refilling a glass of water took 15 minutes....just really bad wait staff. Maybe understaffed even.

    The food was spectacular and better than expected. Most entree's were shared and appreciated by all 4 of us dining together. We all ordered something different and dishes were well prepared. Our server was wonderful as he knew we were trying to get to a show at the hotel and he well accommodated our schedule. Very pleasant as met our needs but not constantly hovering over our table. Made for a terrific pre-celebration to attending concert. We will return to sample new dishes! Thanks!

    Very disappointed! The food would have tasted good but it was served cold. The waiter messed up the order, food delivered we didn't order, item left on check, one item forgotten and then served after we were finished, and it was cold. Deep fried shrimp that is cold is NOT GOOD! In fact all of the dishes were lukewarm but we ate. This restaurant terrible understaffed in wait staff and kitchen. I will not recommend or ever go again!

    The menus were printed on photocopier paper, old and dirty. All of the food was al a carte including bowls of white rice! We asked for brown rice and were told they did not have it on the menu. We ordered string beans in garlic sauce as an appetizer and the beans were diced very small. The chunks of bean curd were larger and outnumbered the string beans by almost 2 to 1. The taste was okay but nothing to write home about. We ordered General Tso's chicken and asked what came with it. Nothing. We asked for broccoli on the side and were told it could not be ordered that way. Our server told us to order beef and broccoli and that way we could share the broccoli from that dish. I tried to explain that we didn't want beef, but to no avail. The chicken was deep fat fried and overdone. I ate most of mine, as I was hungry, but my wife could eat much of her meal at all. Without being asked whether we cared for dessert, our server brought the bill, which we were glad to pay and be over and done with this restaurant. Horrible food and lack luster service.

    Had food cooked without sugar for my wife, when you ask for that you never know for sure what you are going to get. She took her blood sugar when we got home and it was low! Server was really good and made sure we got the food we asked for. Lots of choices prepared well. Very enjoyable.

    Dependable, good food Nothing terribly special that I've tried yet, but certainly a big step above many local Chinese restaurants. Very attractive room and good servers. Nice big round tables for larger parties and comfortable chairs. Good location just off the casino floor at the Palms.

    This is my favorite restaurant for Chinese food and I have discovered no other place equals this one. The service is exemplary and the food top notch. My wife always orders the lemon shrimp as she goes ga ga over them. I order something different each time and satisfaction is for sure. The ambiance is quiet and refined.

    After waiting almost an hour for our entrees, the waiter came up and asked if we had any other food coming. When I explained to the manager how long we had been waiting, and would need to cancel our order, no offer of compensation was made for our drinks or appetizers. Terrible, Terrible service

    Good Chinese option at the Palm, perfect for dinner before a show at The Palm or The Lounge. Service is a bit erratic and can be slow. Menu is excellent with full range of options and several regional cuisines. Decor is beautiful, not your standard Chinese restaurant look.

    Not bad - due to the recent change with Station Casinos taking over the property - the restaurant changed from the name of Lao Sze Chuan to China House. For the most part the interior design of the venue and the menu have remained the same. Probably one of the more reasonable dining options compared to the other offerings at the Palms (read: overpriced). Typical and standard Chinese cuisine offered at reasonable prices (for a casino resort property). If you go, ask for Peng, nice gentleman whom we had for our server. Overall I would say decent - nothing exceptional but overall good quality - did notice portion sizes were smaller than previous - probably Station Casinos implementing cost cutting measures. Staples such as won ton/hot & sour soup, sweet & sour chicken, general's chicken are offered as well as 'hot pot'.
