Our family has been going here for about 14 years and we have introduced this place to many friends. The food was always great. Hadn't been in about a year because the last time it was not that great. We made comments to the manager at

It is really hard to find good Chinese food in Sacramento and this place is no exception in addition to the terrible service.

The service was rude to indifferent, the food was the same. the vegetable in the dishes served were not fresh, the shrimp were ripe smelling, the chicken-well-the chicken feet and skin-to be specific-did not smell like the chicken promised in the dishes served. Eat here at your own risk.

Wow! The Cosmopolitan all you can eat buffet is truly unparalleled. With over 20 dishes comprised of everything from kung pao chicken and orange beef to spicy tangy wonton and walnut prawns, the cosmopolitan menu serves to satisfy the taste buds of beef, chicken and seafood lovers. But really, try the walnut prawns. You won't regret it.

This is how it works:
1.) You start of the night by ordering some appetizers, but if you're like me, I go straight for the main entrees like walnut prawns and kung pao chicken. I mainly order these dishes so I can't exactly remember the rest of the menu. You'll have to find out for yourself.
2.) Every dish including the main entree is served in smaller portions so everyone can try a bit of everything. And you're still hungry, just order more. The price is set.
3.) Dessert! Need I say more?

Service:
The service is mostly on pace, but sometimes can be a little slower than usual on the busier nights (Friday and Saturday). Waiting for a table on a busy night may take about ten minutes, but the food is worth it. especially the cosmopolitan dinner. Yum!

My sister took me and her friend here for our birthdays this year. It was all of our first times. I have to say, I have never been to a buffet where they prepare it just for you. Love it! The food was pretty darn good! One problem though, the waiter didn't bring one of the dishes or should I say a few of the dishes we ordered...we waited it out thinking maybe it takes long to prepare. But, oh well, we just ordered it again. Also, the waiter should come back and check up on us more often, we needed more water and no waiter to be found. Other than that, everything is great about it. I would definantly go there again.

The restuarant has a great atmosphere. The entryway with its fountain, textured walls and antique wodden doors invokes a sense of ancient gradeur. Once inside, there are comfortable booths, regular tables, and a full bar. The women's bathroom has a fancy electronic toilet from Japan which is really cool

The best part, of course, is the food. For less than $15, they have a cook to order buffet. You can chose from over 30 different items, and your server will bring you a small plate of any item you want, all you can eat, and fresh from the kitchen. If you want a wonderful Chinese buffet but prefer your food freshly made and served at the table, this place is for you!

I have been searching high and low for a great Chinese restaurant in Sac. Finally, this restaurant was suggested. So, my boyfriend and I gave it a shot. The staff was friendly and prompt service. But once we received our food, it went downhill from there. The food was horrible. It was a very poor excuse for Chinese cuisine. Save your taste palette on this one :(

Pros: service, ambience

Cons: food

This is just the best place. A chinese buffet that is made to order just for you! What you want, as much or as little as you want, and whatever you want. Try a lot of things you might not usually order or stick with what you know. It's all good.

PROS: Food is prepared when you order it
CONS: Sometimes inconsistant in the way it is made

When you walk in there, it is definitely one of the nicest Chinese restaurant in town. They really spent a lot time to make the restaurant looks good. but food really isnt as good as I expect. I went there because of the citysearch reviews, but it really disappoint me. The deep-fried shrimps is cold & hard (feels like it have been deep-fried for several hours), the satay chicken kebab taste funny without any taste of satay sauce, the "tai-chien" chicken is way over-cooked.

Every restraunt I go to I usually have a favorite and compare anywhere else to that, but just about every dish they have is one of the best or close to it. The Shrimp Tempura's not very good, but this is a Chinese restaurant not Japanese. The buisness lunch is an amazing value and their Moo-shu-pork, and Hot and Sour soup are the best I ever had, but like I said it's really hard to go wrong w/ anything here.

I have only eaten here once, but it was really good when we went. They have a buffet in which everything is made to order; no heat lamps and day old food. I give it a thumbs up. Could be a little bit cheaper, but I would go there again.

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in Sacramento. If you want quality Chinese and not just any Chinese from a buffet place, go to Empire and you will not be disappointed. Good variety of food, quality is excellent, and the price is reasonable. Try lunch for good value meals.

One of the best Chinese restaurants in town! Excellent, quality food, great atmosphere, reasonable price. I would recommend the seafood selection, 'chow foon', and mussels (appetizer). A definite 10 out of 10.
