Another great visit to the imperial. Food was as delicious as always and the service was great even though was extremely busy. Definitely on par with the restaurants in soho and was really glad they were so busy for a Sunday evening. Can't wait to return!

After booking a table for 7.30 to 7.45, and arriving at 7.45 we were met by a very surly staff member who bluntly said we were late. No hello, or welcome of any sort. He then proceeded to point to a table that wasn't even laid out ready for seating. After complaining about his manner and blatant discourtesy, which he... More

Went to Imperial China for lunch on Mother's Day without booking. Restaurant was pretty full but they were flexible as was another family so we shared a larger table. Fine for us, not the first time and not unusual for "proper" Chinese restaurants Anyway, service throughout lunch was great, friendly and quick. In and out within the hour and a... More

This was the second time we have visited and will definitely return. The dim sum is excellent and super fresh, which is great as it is mostly seafood based. I found the cost to be definitely reasonable for the amount and quality. It's always a good sign when there a lots of Chinese families in a Chinese restaurant, which was... More

Every time I walk past this restaurant nestled in the back of Teddington it always looks busy. So my wife and I decided to give it a go. We weren't disappointed. Very nice staff very good service and the food was very good too. One thing I would say, the special dim sum starter wasn't as good as the price... More

We were a table of ten, including five young children, and we all so enjoyed the meal. The Dim Sim was very good and reminiscent of Hong Kong. You can also, as we also did, order a la carte.The service was very good and the Manager happily discussed, and made allowance, for a Vegan amongst us, We had such an... More

The food here is always great and very quick to come out. Slightly on the more expensive side but great tasting food. All the waiters/waitresses are nice but can be a bit blunt and rude; perhaps because their English isn't great? But they do takeaway! :)

Terrible food standard, size of dish and customer service! When we made complaints at the spot, the waiters and waitress told us that the restaurant was very busy that night for dine in and delivery. The reason is just unacceptable. They won't be able to retain their customers of this is the way of running their business. This is not... More

I went to the restaurant for a family dinner on 18th February 2017, it was 10 of us. I dine out quite frequent and certain can tell what food is good or bad. This is the restaurant worst than worst; foods are greasy, salty and heavy in monosodium- glutamate which made you drink litres of water afterward. We tried to... More
