The staff was nice, although they made us wait a long time for a table even though we could see many were available. The food was not what we were expecting. We are from the U.S. so we are apparently accustomed to Americanized-Chinese food. We ordered a spicy sesame chicken, expecting it to be that nice sticky reddish sauce with... More

I will first say the rating is based on the fact that we were in Ireland, in the US this restaurant would get a lower rating but there aren't as many options for asian food in Ireland. I very much enjoyed this restaurant thought part of that was taking a break from the pub food and seafood for something more... More

I'm a regular customer at West Lake Palace and am always happy. I have never found a fault. The food is fresh, flavourful, free from MSG and the service is great. Staff can never do enough for you! The portion sizes are excellent and the menu extensive. The only Chinese worth a visit in Killarney in my opinion.

Touring the land of my Murphy forebears, I walked off the beaten path in Killarney, at Royal Hotel and Kerry Outdoor Sports. Surprised to see this traditional Chinese restaurant, I decided to try something different, because the TripAdvisor emblem is prominently displayed. That TA reviewers choose any restaurant is a dependable recommendation. Not familiar with the menu, I asked the... More

Me and my partner were here on 12 May 2014.. we are Singaporeans that were tired of eating western food for the last 10 days.. so we were looking for chinese food options. Found this unassuming chinese restaurant tucked behind a building off the main road. Located behind Killarney Royal Hotel. We went in and had the early bird menu,... More

We were referred here by our innkeeper at Algret House. Kind of giggled to be going to a chinese restaurant in Ireland! The food was really good. We had Singapore noodles that were one of the best I have every had. They had a nice big table for the five of us with a lazy susan so we could share... More

The location of the restaurant was different to where it was located on the trip advisor map. We arrived on a wet saturday early evening and the restaurant was empty. Service was friendly and efficient. The mixed starter was tasty, although the BBQ sauce was bit too sweet. We had hot and sour soup. I had the beef curry which... More
