All the menu items are pretty much outstanding. Really liked their Duck, Orange Beef , and Shrimp dishes. Service is top notch as well. The only negatives are decor, a minor issue, and price. That being said, probably the best Chinese restaurant in Ft Lauderdale.

We are from England and have been dining at the Rainbow Palace for nearly 20 years every time we visit Fort Lauderdale - it never disappoints. The food is excellent, the staff are excellent - it's clearly a very much loved and frequented restaurant.
