From the outside this restaurant is something you would immediately avoid if you didn't know it. Why the owners do not invest on a tin of paint I do not know but it has been shabby and dirty for years. If you get through this and step inside then you find a pleasant restaurant with friendly staff and reasonably good... More

The starters were slow coming out, my "king prawn" starter was not king prawn, the ribs which 2 other people had were not cooked in barbecue sauce, more of a gravy. I had deep fried crispy beef which was all batter and very little beef which was disappointing. The bill they tried to over charge us by charging 2 of... More

Thoroughly disappointed from the starter to the Bill. We live locally and unfortunately this place was recommended to us . Small portion size not hot and not very tasty and to top it off we were overcharged on the bill which they did correct after we spent 10 minutes with the menu working it out for ourselves in all it...

The sea palace is one of the best chinese restaurants in penzance, yes it could do with a bit of a face lift. Its looked the same now for many years. But its the food that keeps us going back time and time again. This time was for a friends birthday, as always great...

We tend to have takeaway from Sea Palace but occasionally eat in. Food is consistently good and accuracy of order perfect. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Menus is extensive with something for everyone.

Came here for a meal with family. Staff were gossiping about other staff in front of us and didn't come across professional at all. We were then seated downstairs which was a bit cold and tables were to close to others as they had a lot of bookings that night. Food wasn't hot when it came out and it got... More
