This restaurant has been around a long time. It was THE place to go for Chinese food. Its far from great, now just ok. We ordered from the very reasonably priced lunch menu, which included iced tea. The portions were good but unfortunately the quality was bland.

So far, we have not found a good Chinese Restaurant in Victoria. We had hot and sour soup and it wasn't anything like the real thing--sort of an Americanized version. Dark inside the restaurant, needs a good facelift. We've been once, that was enough.

Should've went to China B. They actually used spaghetti noodles in the shrimp lo mein. It was kind of weird. I'm sorry but it's just not the same lol. Oh yea, and they gave me like five shrimp. What the?

The food was good but it is ridiculous that they have started charging for the containers on the take out orders!!!

Like the other reviews said, this place is just not what it used to be. The past few times I have been here I have been highly disappointed. Their lunch specials are cheap but the food is bad quality.

I regretted my choice to visit the Dragon Palace Chinese Restaurant in Victoria, Texas, for lunch on 12/06/2011. I am a 50 year old Chinese American and should have known better not to stay immediately after I was seated. I have been to many chinese restaurants in my lifetime and this is the worst. The server made a simple order... More

This restaurant has been open since 1979, and has become a favorite of mine over the past few years. For the longest time, I was told that it was dirty and the food wasn't very good. However, I went once with friends and really enjoyed it. Now, it's a frequent dining spot for both me and my fiance. The food... More

I used to like Dragon Palace but the past few times I have been in there I have gotten horrible service except from Julie. The lady at the counter is so rude . Go to Better Business Bureau and read the complaint against them before you decide to give them your business. You couldn't pay me to go there now!

Dragon Palace USE to be the place to go to get the best tasting Chinese food in Victoria. Those days have long gone. The food is now mostly bland and the portions have shrunk as well. The managers and most of the waitstaff (except for a wonderful waitress named "Julie") have attitude problems and no concern for your dining experience.... More
