When I first read some online reviews, this sounded too good to be true—a dumpling house that rivals Manhattan’s Chinatown? On Bath Pike in Bethlehem?
Prince Palace is literally a hidden treasure—a spacious restaurant sitting far off the road can be easily overlooked. However, if you are looking for authentic Asian cuisine, family-friendly, with hospitable staff and unbeatable prices—consider this treasure discovered.
The menu inspires ordering an assortment of dumplings, “steamed juicy buns,” egg rolls and more due to the inexpensive prices. Dumplings (including our recommendations: shrimp boiled; chicken and napa cabbage boiled; curry chicken boiled) range from $3.50-4.75 for 8! Steamed crab and pork juicy buns were bursting with flavor $3.95-7.25 for 6. A bowl of chicken corn soup ($1.75) was tasty but heavy.
We took our friends back for a second trip and enjoyed exploring more of the menu. This time our meal ended with a sweet Asian dessert. We also ventured into their beverages including coconut milk tea and bubble tea. ($2-2.75) Prince Palace is ideal for large parties and take-out. For a home gathering, you can purchase frozen dumplings (50 for $15-22.00).
An all-around delicious meal and enjoyable place to eat!
