We were promptly greeted and seated, then nothing. Other tables were getting tea right away. Not us. Finally our server came by and asked what we wanted. (Just like that) We ordered food and expected her to ask about drinks but she just went away....More

Emperor's Choice is one of the old, established restuarants in Chicago's Chinatown. Some of the old-time restuarants have recently left the area. We were glad to try out Emperor's Choice and find out that it was exactly what we were looking for. Great menu with...More

While visiting family in Chicago, we went to Chinatown. They had been to Emperors Choice before and it did not disappoint. From the appetizers, the wonton soup and the very large entree dishes, the food was delicious. The restaurant was very clean, the staff very...More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
