Oriental Palace sets the standards for Upscale, Fine Dining Restaurants

As a child, our family would dine in Chinese restaurant on family gatherings, special occasions and holidays. Amazing Chinese fares have been served in the majority of wedding banquets I have participated in. I often wondered why Chinese food is so popular on both sides of the family and now I know better.

Most Filipinos have developed a fondness for Chinese cuisine since most Chinese Restaurants make it a point to serve the best dishes with a festive mood. Chinese restaurants offer a wide variety of tasty, filling flavors and textures from vegetables to all kinds of meats. There is always something for everyone in the family to indulge in.



It's been a while since I had my fill of fancy Chinese fare. And if you are craving for sumptuous Chinese food preparations like I do, you'll be happy to know that Oriental Palace is now open to serve you.
The restaurant is huge with a total dining area of 1,200 sqm and a seating capacity of 800 persons.

According to the General Manager of Oriental Palace, Chris Chester Chua, Oriental Palace traces its roots to Wah Yuen (Chinese Garden), a small noodle and dimsum shop across the Love Bus station in Escolta put up by his father (then a young cook from HongKong) in 1978. It quickly became a byword among the local Chinese community and Filipino families because of its traditionally-prepared Peking duck, home-made noodles and flavorful dimsum options.

Oriental Palace offers fresh and delicious Chinese food based on their perfect understanding of balance through the years of their expertise. Oriental Palace takes great care in serving well-balanced flavors and textures for discerning tastes of their customers.


The family patriarch, Chua Kun (Henry Chua), handpicks the freshest catch of the day at the market and oversees its preparation in the kitchen as head chef. A HongKong chef himself, he guides the other two HongKong chefs in the preparation of the dishes to ensure its authentic taste and quality of food being served.

  2. We also always dine in Chinese restaurants whenever we have family gatherings and celebrations both in mother and father sides. Our grandparents and most elders don't prefer eating other cuisines. The Oriental Palace sounds like a good catch. How about the prices?

  8. I guess tradition bodes well for Chinese Restaurants and this one starting in Escolta in 1978 gives it an edge. This looks like a really nice place to enjoy authentic Chinese meal.
