High expectations when we drove up and observed a magnificent looking multi story building. No wonder they call it palace. Big koi and turtle ponds with vegetation right out front. Spectacular spiral staircase in the lobby but we took a hidden elevator straight in from the front entrance to get up to the giant sized ballroom on a Sunday. No... More

My wife and I visited on a Sunday and we got in just before the crowd formed. This restaurant seats 1,000 diners. We haven't eaten here as a couple since we moved from Houston ten years ago but my wife recognized a few of the women who push the carts from ten years ago. The food is always fresh and... More

The egg rolls were magnificent. Fried rice great. I really like the round balls covered with sesame seeds (Sorry, I don't know what they are called, my bad).. Basically the food was very good. However the place could definitely used with some sprucing up and cleaning up. We found out the hard way that the dim sum is only served... More

This is a restaurant I have visited on many occasions, but mostly for it's dim sum. Ocean Palace is located in Houston's Chinatown. It's an enormous restaurant, two stories, which are like two restaurants in one. The downstairs is very elegant, offering a varied menu. Upstairs is a huge open banquet room, offering dim sum. There is also a counter... More

Excellent dim sum. They come around with the carts even on a Tuesday. Service is minimal typical for dim sum. The ladies that push the carts have the best English compared others. Only negative is the place not that clean. The pond had trash in it. Inside areas has years of dust. The fish tanks had green funk growing. Management... More

Ocean Palace is a colossus of a restaurant. It probably seats 500 in the upstairs hall. But don't be overwhelmed. The little push carts of goodness will make you feel right at home. We had several dim sum dishes and two were great and one was mediocre. No problems though, just try the next wave of dim sum being carted... More

Very large place for dim sum where they sometimes use both floors when it gets busy, otherwise on 2nd floor. Typical dim sum offerings, pork buns and shrimp dumplings always are good. They have staff who do speak some English if need be, otherwise wait for the carts and point to what you would like. Sometimes you may have to... More

Ocean Palace is located in the Hong Kong City Mall, on Bellaire Blvd., west of the Sam Houston Tollway. The entire complex looks impressive from the outside. The Modern 2-3 story building is surrounded by an L-shaped reflecting pool, with dozens of turtles and a large Lily pond. Unfortunately, the water is quite cloudy and the turtles are covered with...
