The Grand Palace masters the art of creating a delicious and authentic Chinese dining experience in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The restaurant, well known for its daily dim sum (a traditional Chinese meal made up of small plates and served with tea that is typically enjoyed during the brunch hours), serves upwards of 10 courses of family-style eats with more than 200 menu options.
For easy eating, the Grand Palace also offers set meals for four people, eight people, or ten people with a variety of meats like pork chops and sizzling beef, seafood like lobster with ginger and scallion, appetizers like the House Special Chef’s Seafood Soup, and shareable desserts.
Aside from its delectable eats, what makes this restaurant so unique is its expansive event space. Opened last August, the Grand Palace welcomed the addition of more than 16,000 square feet of event space to the city. With three distinctive halls, the entire space has the capacity for up to 700 people.
“Every type of event you can think of, we can cater to,” says Thao Tran, general manager of Grand Palace.
The main hall is fit for 350 people, whereas the two adjacent rooms can host up to 180 each. Each room is equipped with its own LED screen (35-by-8-foot screen in the main hall and 19-by-8-foot screen in the other two rooms) and stage for optimal live entertainment. For the ultimate team bonding experience, head to one of the four karaoke rooms to jam to your favorite tunes and share your love for your favorite artists.
With flexibility to customize your event from menu offerings and optimal space combinations, Tran says the restaurant’s in-house banquet manager will work with planners to develop an event that suits their budget and needs.
“We bring all of the community together … and we work with everyone to make everyone happy,” she says.
