On multiple occasions I have been unknowingly served meat by this place. Last time I ordered Vegetarian hot and sour soup and sesame tofu. The soup had about a dozen small pieces of pork (my non-veg wife confirmed this) mixed in with the other solids. The sesame tofu had 2 pieces of what clearly was NOT tofu (chicken I guess?).

Today I ordered vegetarian orange beef. This is supposed to be fake meat made from textured veg protein. Instead I was served real beef, confirmed by the hostess! They replaced the dish, with apologies. I ate the corrected dish, upset, but assuming it was just a mistake that happens. Just now I was eating the leftovers of that dish. It is indeed mostly veg...but there is also clearly one loose shrimp tail and one whole shrimp mixed in. What the $$@#! DisgustingI will never eat here again.

Anything you could ever want or need in Chinese food can be found here. They even have tofu or fake meat versions of every dish. I love the General Tsos tofu. yummy!!! They are fast, have a wide home delivery range, and give decent portions. Great place in the Heights!

Although there is seating in the back, it's completely dodgey, cheesy and limited. This does not detract from the quality of the food which is fantastic. The selection offered here is extensive and includes sushi, Thai and Chinese food. There is a generous selection of tasty vegetarian food. The portions provided are big enough for 2 meals. I've never been disappointed by a meal here and I usually order from them 4 times a month. I can't say the same for the delivery guys, I've had to complain about the one on the scooter because he was so rude and annoying but after that he was fine. The rest of the delivery guys are alright though. Anyway I'd definately recommend this place.

Pros: The food and extensive selection

Cons: In restaurant dining, delivery guys and servers

Editorial from

Empire offers consistent quality and value via its vast list of the robustly seasoned dishes of China's north, Japanese fare and sushi. Service leans to the perfunctory, but if it's a jolt of red pepper and black bean that you require,…
