I'm told (I didn't read it) that the newspaper gave them a horrible review...HOW? So I want to make sure people know how fantastic this place is. Very rarely do I find a restaurant that has food that I don't have one complaint about or another AND the combination of great service. The entire staff always makes me and my family feel as though we ARE family. I know we're not the only ones either because we see several families and individuals coming in being greeted by name, sometimes they'll sit with you for a minute or two. Donny and the other sushi chefs always do their best to make you feel welcome and treated well (especially Donny) We've never tried the chinese menu but the sushi is the best in all of Sparks (and even Reno too!!) and we always find ourselves coming back despite the growing selection of choices in Spanish Springs. I can't say enough good things about CJ Palace!! :)
Some reason I feel like the news review about CJ Palace is related to the new sushi across the street. Reason is the same day the newspaper article came out is also the same day the new sushi restaurant open. I've never read a review as bad as this one. I can understand you don't like a certain dish, but to saying everything is terrible is just almost impossible. I ate there many times, they even know my name and yes sometimes the service is not as great or food takes a little bit longer to come out but the foods are great. I've ate at other chinese restaurant down the street. Fortune palace. Both place looks similiar in design, but CJ's food taste alot better. Rumor sugguested both restaurant are related, but each chef seeks seperate interest, therefore they were parted..
Hong Kong Kitchen offers some of the best asian food I have tasted this side of New York City. As a New Yorker I am always looking for the foods that can compare to New York's variety and taste. By far this is the best place I have gone too since moving to Nevada. They serve a wide variety of dishes including Dim Sum. I reccommend Generals Chicken and an order of dumplings but be prepared, there portions are large (typically a full plate of your entree with a full plate of rice) and will fill you up quickly with plenty to take home for left overs. There cost is right in line with other places but the portions are large for what you pay for them. I go to this location AT LEAST once a week now.
