My sister took me to Imperial Palace for my birthday. What a treat! I was thinking about it all day today...so tempeted to return just a day later for more wonton soup. This soup had shrimp, chicken and pork in the broth with delicious vegetables. We had the soup for two and it was so much that we had at least another bowl full to take home. After eating the soup I realized we had ordered food (where was I going to put it - I was already stuffed). We had General Tae chicken (not General Tso). It was really good. I had enough left over for another meal the next day. To sum it up, the food was excellent and so was the service. The waitress and hostess were very attentive and quite helpful in making recommendations. It is my new favorite Chinese food restaurant.

The wife and I went for her Birthday dinner. We found this to be an exellent choice. They have no buffet, a real sit down dinner. The decor is elegant also. The wait staff was prompt, friendly and attentive. I was impressed that they let us finish one course before bringing the next. We started with the soup, the wife had the Chicken and Corn and was very pleased. It's like Egg Drop with the other fused into it. I had the Hong Kong Won Ton, best Won Ton I have every had. The difference is the vegetables. We had and order of Lumpia and we were both pleased. The wife said it's the best she's had since home made by a Fillipina inlaw. My wife had the Chicken Chow Mein and loved it. Best she's had in a long long time, made with all white meat. I had the Seafood Koba and loved it. Made with scallops, shrimp and sea legs with vegetables in a fantastic sauce. We both enjoyed our meals and were very happy with the portions. I barely finished mine and the wife had to get a to-go box. All in all a very pleasant experience. We will be going back again!

Just left there from lunch. Paid $16.00 with tip for egg drop soup, water and Governor's Chicken. I have enough for another meal. It is a cozy restaurant, the host is extremely friendly. Be ready to 'relax' don't go if you are in a hurry for lunch or dinner. It's a slow lunch but the food is over the top delicious.

This place has a nice romantic environment and great freshly made to order food. I love the Orange beef it is simply magnificent, their governors chicken is what many restaurants call general taos chicken, which is very good, it is crispy not soggy. It may be pricier than some Chinese restaurants but you get what you pay for.
