Residing in the distinguished iconically-white Chinese Assembly Hall building in Kampung Attap, Chinese Palace draws the crowd to its elegant interiors and offerings of good food. Chef Frankie Woo, a well-known veteran culinary master, together with a team of chefs, are behind the repertoire of Chinese delights this restaurant has to offer.
As its name suggests, the interior of the restaurant certainly has elements of grandeur, with bold colours and classic oriental décor reminiscent of palatial heydays. There are 7 private rooms – all tastefully decked out – for those who want discreet dining.
We were there for lunch and opted for their Dim Sum instead of a la carte dishes. Traditional classics like Siu Mai, Har Kow and Char Siew Pau were all executed well. We like their Stirfried Radish Cake and Steamed Pork Ribs, too. From the Deep-fried category, their Fried Prawn Rolls were excellent. However, their Claypot Lo Shue Fun and Pork Patty Rice were just average.
If you plan to dine here, whether it’s on weekdays or weekends, for lunch or dinner, it’s advisable to make a reservation ahead as they are always busy.
