Koi Palace Restaurant is better than your average Chinese restaurant so it is no surprise that their prices are somewhat higher. Is it worth it? I would say so, I liked everything that my wife and I ordered except the fried taro which I personally...More

My friend and I love the juicy shanghai dumpllings in the dipping sauce! I also enjoy the hand pulled noodle wrapped fish with its savory sweet soy sauce. The string beans, garlic herb tofu cubes, crab claws, mushroom chicken buns and roast duck are staple...More

No hot pot. Dim sum during the day. You might be able to get a few selections of dim sum at dinner time if you ask; it all depends on how much was unsold during lunch time.
