We've been here several times and have enjoyed the generously portioned plates. The moo goo gai pan is probably the best we've ever had and their vegetable lo mein is loaded with crisp veggies that stand up to anybodys. We love the lobster tank also!!! Wish they delivered..

I've lived in the area for years and with so many restaurants around, it took a while before I tried crown palace. Not only was I pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food, but the waiters, dressed in suits, are so quick and efficient. We have gone with our family of 3 as well as with our...

There are two Crown Places in our area. This review is for the one in Marlboro, which I prefer over the one in Middletown. Its menu for dinners and weekday lunches are typical of Chinese restaurants. We like their Lo mein, Beef chow fun, Sesame chicken, and Braised bean curd. They serve dim sum for lunch on weekends and holidays.... More

Food always good. Service is always a ten. Full service bar. Fish chicken and beef dishes are always a good choice.

Extensive menu of chinese food. For the 2 of us, we picked the 4-course $19.95/person offering. Started with soup. The Won Ton soup was fine but the Hot 'n Sour soup lacked flavor. The Dim Sum was laced with a very salty dumpling sauce. The main course of Sweet & Sour Pork was terrible. The meat had a lot gristle,... More

Very nice upscale Asian restaurant. The decor and atmosphere are very nice. The staff is helpful and pleasant, always smiling. The food, whether you choose Chinese favorites like General Tso's or something more exotic, is excellent.

I have been going here for years and is a local favorite for Chinese. Service is excellent. Try their dim sum in Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

It was Chinese New Year, of course this resturant will be busy. The waiting area had a waiting line. Even with a reservation we still had to wait a half hour for a table. Note to self come after 1:30 next year. The dim sum was as good as always. We ordered the usual: har gao, shu mais, mini egg... More

Crown Palace has stood the test of time. Whether you're eating in or taking out you will enjoy their fine Chinese offerings. They also have Dim Sum specials on the weekend. Try their lunch plates too. You will not be disappointed.

While Crown Palace used to be a personal favorite, over time it has become inconsistent in its delivery. Favored dishes no longer arrive at the table with the same taste!
