The perennial best Chinese in Fort Lauderdale does not come cheap. It is very expensive for dinner. The locals know to get the same outstanding food at lunch for a less expensive meal. It is not cheap for lunch, but it is a special beautiful restaurant to try.

I have eaten numerous Chinese restaurants throughout the world, including the Peninsla in Hong Kong and the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok, and the Rainbow Palace ranks as one of the best.

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.

A swanky, elegant ambience with food and service to match. This restaurant has been here for a few decades and has the following to show that standards and quality are consistently high. The sauces were exceptional, especially the orange sauce on the beef and country chicken. The scallops appetizer was absolutely wonderful.

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.

We have been eating here on special occasions for the past 20 years. It has always been expensive (thus special occasions) but used to be unique, one of a kind meal. Sadly this time every thing we ordered came out tasting like the other. Maybe they are just cooking 1 or 2 sauces. Additionally, felt like too much thickening agent,... More

We always look forward to have dinner here, always great Chinese food. Great service. Every dish is excellent to share since they serve a lot. Our favorite dish have always been the chef's spicy fried rice and the Crispy Duck with grand Marnier Sauce. Last time I hate to say we were very disappointed on the duck. Very few small... More
