Best in Reno
I have been eating at Palais for over 10 years now, and every time the food is consistently excellent. They know me every time I come in, sit me at my favorite corner table. When the family comes they make sure we have a big table in the back, and the service is always fantastic..don't let your glass run low of water. This place always reminds me of those old karate films where two guys come jumping out of the glass window and have a brawl. Love the place, Joseph and crew do a fantastic job.
Forget the rest, this place is the best.
Citizens of Reno: Sure, there are other so-called Chinese restaurants in town, and then there is Palais de Jade...stop wasting your time at those other places and always go here. If you want flawless, delicious authentic Chinese food, this is the only place in town. Enough said.
As an International Consultant, I have enjoyed many fine restaurants throughout the World. Award winning Palais De Jade is certainly one of the finest Chinese restaurants I have ever encountered. The cuisine is excellent and so is the service. Different from most Chinese and Mexican restaurants, which so often have tacky or bland atmospheres, the classy interior decoration is marvelous. With all these fine qualities, one would think the cost would be above average, yet it is less expensive than most of the first class restaurants in Reno. The owners, Long, Joe, Jane and Hiroko are well known for their great interpersonal relationships with their customers. A couple of years ago they opened a new Asian restaurant at the Grand Sierra Hotel in Reno called the Rim. Once again, they achieved success by providing marvelous cuisine, ambience and service.

Brought a customer here, what a great idea!
We came here for lunch, I got there early and sat at the bar. Reminded me of an old school chinese place in NY or SF.
Very quick attentive good service. Awesome food.
I will be back for sure!
Everytime we've come here, the place is always busy, BUT this place is NEVER lacking in customer service!! The staff is always friendly, smiling, very attentive, and the food always comes out very tasty and flavorful!! ( i.e. chicken broccoli, chicken in black bean sauce, sweet and sour, salt/pepper chicken...)
The ambiance is elegant and inviting... Plenty of parking.. Highly recommendable!!
Best Chinese in Reno, but it's Reno so if you're coming from SF lower your expectations. Every soup I've had from the wor won ton to the ceramic clay pot with seafood and tofu has been utterly delicious and comforting. All the other dishes are hit or miss. People seem to be a fan of the five taste chicken although I have no idea why, these little nuggets of chicken come out shaped like tater totes and they taste like they've been flavored with a mix of sweet chili sauce, soy, sweet and sour, and maybe a couple of other random sauces, if you're coming to a nicer Chinese restaurant why get something that looks akin to something you'd fine in a Panda Express? The panfried noodles were good, although not enough noodles and too much sauce. The Szechuan eggplant was also very tasty. I would always order a soup here, and be on guard for what else gets ordered!
Is there any better Chinese restaurant in Reno?
Maybe, but I haven't found one. I've been coming to this restaurant since the 90's, and although there's been minor changes good and bad, I say the quality, freshness, and taste of the food is still spectacular. Service is great. I only wish it wasn't so quiet in there, and people knew how to have a good time. It might be a good place for a date? I would rather laugh my ass off, take sake bombs, and enjoy listening to my fellow eating people that are with me talk about this, and talk about that, and talk about how much they hate every Tyler Perry movie. I've never seen one, so I wouldn't know. Peace out!
Fresh, high quality Chinese food. I stopped here a bit back for some lunch, the services was prompt and very professional. My companions and I had the 5 tastes, Sweet and Sour and General Tao's Chicken. The food arrived very quickly, was very fresh and very tasty.
This restaurant was very clean and well put together . The entrees are a bit pricey, but it is high quality and well worth it. This is definitely a higher end Chinese food restaurant, what some would call "fancy". Bon Appetit!
It was our first dinner experience here. If you come to dinner time, you may think that the price on the menu is a bit expensive but TRUST me it will well worth it!
We finally decided to get Peking dinner set for $20/person which we both will get one of each Chicken Lettuce wrap, Crab Rangoon and Fried prawn for the appetizers. FOr the soup, we didn't want to have sizzling rice soup nor won won ton soup either. SO we asked for sub. to hot and sour soup. Which We loved it! On the main course, we can pick one item on the selections menu. So my husband got GENERAL's chicken and I got SZECHUAN STYLE SAUTEED SHRIMP both came with rice which my hubby selected fried rice, and I had brown rice.
BAM! The foods were AWESOME as well as the SERVICE! Our server was professional. if you are looking a place for date night, I highly recommended!
