Staff are really friendly and very helpful. The food is gorgeous. The decor is amazing inside and well worth a visit. I will definitely be going back.

We went here yesterday for a quick buffet lunch before work. When we arrived we were asked if we would like the early bird or the buffet we opted for the buffet. What we were not told was that the buffet was almost over and would not be refilled - there were at least 3 dishes empty!! More diners entered... More

Eaten here quite a few times, I'm amazed at how few tables are filled as this really is a good Chinese. They appear to have a booming take-out business. Staff are very good, yep I'll go back there again.

This is a nice restaurant. You get what you expect. They have buffet on Sundays all you can eat for 12e. Very good option, specially if you go early because it is quite popular. One thing I didn't like is you pay up front. That's weird. I would recommend this restaurant any time.

It's been some time since we were at the Imperial Garden Chinese Restaurant. The standard is still very high, the staff were very attentive and always smiling. The Food was excellent and we enjoyed a very relaxing evening in sumptuous surroundings. Good all round

We stopped at the Imperial hungry after a day of travel. It was a busy Saturday night. My traveling companion ordered Szechuan shrimp which he pronounced excellent. I ordered hot and sour soup which was also very good, and the steak – 24 ounce strip, which was cooked to order, but not seared, and so was lacking in the juices... More

We recently had a meal at this restaurant. Car parking is provided at the rear of the restaurant. There is no access from here to the restaurant so you have to walk a short distance to reach the restaurant entrance which is situated facing the main road. The restaurant area is large and well laid out so diners have space... More
