“A good takeaway choice”

After a long day I wanted an easy takeaway. There were several options on Grand Avenue but Grand Palace looked bright and inviting. It was only when inside I realised that it is huge; and it was mostly full of Asians enjoying dinner. I felt I was insulting the venue by asking for a takeaway.
However the service was impressive and friendly. 20 minutes later I emerged with a feast. The food was excellent.
Next time I'll eat in and enjoy the full experience.

We came here for dim sum one day and a 2nd visit for a wedding banquet. As it's a seafood restaurant, there was a lot of shrimp. The food was very good.
We had 10 courses and couldn't finish it.
The facility is huge, so the bottom floor easily accommodated 200+ persons and over 20 tables.
They don't seem to have enough staff to work the banquet and the waiter got one of the guests upset by tossing some of the left overs from one dish, onto another, mixing up the 2 dishes when he should've transferred the leftovers to a smaller dish to make room for more dishes.

This place is huge the dim sum is fresh and hot,I had lots of sim sum in the past this place had a couple novelties for me.
The carts were coming at a regular pace.
My only issue that was tough to communicate with the servers.
Would go back again.
They will cook for you whatever you want if you don't see it on the cart.

Looking for a quick bite to eat, we ran across this hidden gem. Beautifully decorated with an elegant ambience, the food was professionally served and attention was made to the details that made for generous portions and an excellent meal. The Broccoli beef was very good. Reasonably priced for a la carte. The best part was, by far, the mango pudding (homemade daily, we were told!) for dessert. Definitely recommend.

The place is huge with 2 levels. We got a table immediately at lunch time. Dim sum is still served with ladies pushing the carts. Bad for their backs but good for customers to see the food.
We liked the Jasmine tea and bamboo sticky rice. They were small but good. The rest of the food were decent but not outstanding.
Taro root balls - not too oily, nice filling.
Har gow was siu mai were good. The shrimp inside the har gow were big, generous and still had good chew/crunch to it. Cheer feet was not so good as the feet were gigantic. Were they from Amazon chickens in steroids? Didn't like the plain chow mein which was dry and only had onion and bean sprouts in it. Also didn't care for the steamed spare ribs.
