I order take out from here on a regular basis...good quality food at a great price. Staff are always warm and friendly. You have to wait sometimes for your order because how busy they are but I don't care because I know I'm getting the best Chinese food in Kelowna.

Chow mein noodles dry, flavourless, no effort put into flavour. Spring rolls, they were okay but not fantastic. Deep fried wontons, over cooked, greasy., black bean beef, too much oil used! Time to change the oil in the kitchen or perhaps an overhaul cleaning should be in order. At least the steamed rice was cooked right.. Your safe bet. Don't... More

We were spoiled with good Chinese restaurants in Vernon but, since moving to Kelowna, didn't hear many good reviews for same in this city. We decided to check out the Imperial and are very glad we did. Although the appearance isn't much, the service was prompt and friendly, and the food was fresh, tasty, and not greasy. We ordered dinner... More

Our family has been eating at this restaurant for years and they never disappoint. We have dined in a few times but mostly do pick up or delivery. For us, because we live so close the delivery is always fast and the prices affordable.

Walked into the restaurant just after 4PM today to place a take away order. Started with friendly greetings (as usual) then I gave praise and compliments for the hot and tasty food in my last week take away order. When I placed my order today, I was quickly told 'oh another person ordered exactly the same and never came to... More

After two bad meals from the local Chinese restaurant we had been patronizing, we decided to try this one based on the good reviews it has received on trip advisor. We ordered: deep fried spring rolls, lemon chicken, mixed vegetables in black bean sauce and chicken fried rice. The coating on the lemon chicken was crisp, not soggy, maybe because... More

The food is fairly authentic and good value with friendly service. We are from Vancouver so are spoiled by good Chinese food - this place is considered pretty good for Kelowna. Chinese food is a good option for gluten, beef, chicken and wheat free diet.

This is not good Canadian Chinese food. If you ever had 'good' Chinese don't go here. It use to be good then they got way to busy or they lost their cook, something has definately changed. The two meat dishes we had were so lathered in salty sauces you couldn't even enjoy the meat. Oooey Gooey Yuk. Hate to be... More

It was like going back into a time warp entering this restaurant. We decided to try and find it based on some of the online reviews we read on the internet. Since moving to Kelowna, we've been desperate to find some good Chinese food. What we found here was pretty decent, but it wasn't what I expected. Instead, I was... More

Living in the lower mainland we have become spoiled when it come to Asain cuisine, and up until this weekend every time we have had Chinese food in the Okanagan it has been fairly terrible. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh, hot and the flavours were good. A few of the dishes were a bit soupy for my... More
