It's a typical, Swedish-Asian buffet restaurant, with a range of different foods reflectig both Asian owners and mostly Swedish clientele. I found it pleasant enough, and it certainly got the job done as a place where you want lunch in a hurry without much fuss. Interior deco is actually ice, too. If I lived in the city, I'd eat here...

Eastern Palace is a typical Swedish "Chinese" restaurant. There will be some stuff on the menu that you won't recognize here if you have eaten chines food somewhere else in the world. However, the food is reasonably good and the prices are fair. No fine dining, but ok. There best offer is probably the "Asian" lunch buffet, containing Chinese food... More

Expected a lot better, the food was dry and tasteless. The chicken wasn't done. Really disappointed, not recommended. 2/5.

Bringing young children to a restaurant sure can be a nightmare. We search near and far for a restaurant to accommodate two babies with all their accompanying gear, which was super difficult. But at this restaurant there was absolutely no problem, we even got to sit in our own little corner which was great as we didn't feel like we... More

This is not authentic chinese food at all. But if you are familiar with panda express, this is just a fancier version. Salty and msg after taste leaves your throat very dry and you need to drink water constantly after eating here. If you are desperate for some sort of Asian taste, its alright but do not expect a proper... More

I went there twice for lunchbuffee and it was perfect! I like the food... Tasty! But it is just went there twice for lunch, realizing that they always have the same menu.. Kind of... Hoping for more variation..more vegetables and varieties of sallads... Maybe i should try a la carte menu instead.. But of course lunchbuffee is cheapest..
