If Ken Hom Says So!
Ocean Palace is FJB’s very own Chinese restaurant – one of Bournemouth’s most popular Chinese haunts and now Poole’s most popular Chinese haunt!
In-house in the family-friendly Sandbanks Hotel the restaurant is run by the original Ocean Palace team
out of dedicated and purpose-built Chinese kitchens. The 80 covers at front of house face the Blue Flag Sandbanks Beach with 200-degree views out to sea! What a location! And what a menu – and if Ken Hom OBE says so you’ve got to be impressed. Ken has hosted three events in the restaurant and has raised funds for the humanitarian charity that he ambassadors, ‘Action Against Hunger’, as well as entertaining over 250 guests with his cheffing skills alongside kitchen and travelling anecdotes.
The restaurant began life with FJB as a pop up in 2015 and quickly became so popular that it became
a permanent fixture much to the delight of Poole and Bournemouth lunch and dinner diners alongside hotel guests of course.
The menu is elaborate and a real representation of what authentic Chinese food should be; fresh, full of flavour, crunch, heat and with a sizzle picked from a wide selection of traditional dishes.
Everything is cooked from scratch to order and this gives guests time to enjoy the wine list, view and a few cheeky prawn crackers!
Choose from Peking duck, spring rolls, soups, noodles, bird’s nests, satay, beef, lamb, pork, prawn and chicken dishes alongside a huge choice of vegetarian dishes.
The service is charming, familiar faces with a smile advise on the menu and wines to complement and humbly bring each course with the right amount of time between each one to make for a relaxing meal.
In the summer months, enjoy Chinese tapas on the Terrace and during the winter stay cosy by the fireplace in the centre of the restaurant.
Opening times can vary, so please do call the restaurant to check and to make reservations over the weekend. palace
