Here comes a new restaurant right in the thick of it all in Palm Springs, just in time for the changing seasons. Roly China Fusion, a casual outfit offering everything from dim sum and dumplings to kung pao chicken, comes by way of longtime Palm Springs area operator Chad Gardner, and it opens to the world tomorrow for both lunch and dinner.

Gardner, a James Beard Foundation member, is already well known in Palm Springs for sister restaurant 533 Viet Fusion. For Roly China Fusion he’s brought on chefs DJ and Yolanda Cheek to oversee lunch, dinner, a dim sum brunch menu, and a full cocktail bar with traditional and non-traditional drinks alike. Cheek previously spent time working at Tao in Los Angeles and in Las Vegas. The opening menus can be found below

As for the space, Roly China Fusion sits right on Palm Canyon Drive, next to the busy Bootlegger’s Tiki bar. The dining room and attached bar space can hold 150 diners at a clip, including pet-friendly patio space and a private dining room.

Expect hours for Roly China Fusion from from 11 a.m. through dinner during the week, with an extension to midnight on Friday and Saturday along with 10 a.m. dim sum brunch. Reservations are available now.
