Hubby and I have been regular customers of Red Palace for years. We love the variety of the buffet and it seems like they do introduce new dishes occasionally. We like that! My favorite is the coconut shrimp dish and beef and brocoli. Always a...More

My family eats lunch or dinner buffet at Red Palace frequently. I have never had a disappointing meal or service experience there. The servers are always pleasant and the restaurant is very clean. I recommend this establishment to all.

Came for lunch with a friend. A little pricey and the selection of food was not that great. Been to these types of buffets at a strip mall and got better service and selection.

Have been to their Lunch Buffet MANY times. Never had a meal there that was less than 'Outstanding'. This is not one of those Super Buffets. Don't get me wrong. It is big enough, but it is not huge. You get a very nice variety...More
