Not impressed with New Empress

Ordered take out to feed 8 people and as we were visiting Kelowna so don't know restaurants and it was one that came up on google. The chow mein was ok but the prawns and almond chicken batter was overcooked. The food seemed bland. I suggest trying somewhere else.

Ordered from here delivery. $5.00 delivery charge that does not go to the driver, so dinner for two with tip that was supposed to be $26 bucks became $40.00. Food was worst than any mall chinese food I have tried. Do yourself a favor and order pizza.

My wife and I had a craving for Chinese and picked this one by chance. We walked in and yes it looked a little sketchy but we ordered regardless. Feeling hungry and since I am a big boy we ordered the dinner for three just to make sure we had enough food. The wonton soup was served family style and... More

Thought we would give this place a try as our regular Chinese food restaurant had closed early. I was told delivery would take 45 minutes, but after 1 hour and 15 minutes of waiting without any sign of our food, I called the restaurant back to cancel the order. While on the phone, lo and behold a car drives slowly... More

When I received my delivery I was quiet disappointed. Firstly, the place I wanted to order Chinese from didn't have a driver to deliver so I had to order from this place. When I received it, my shrimp balls (which were cooked with the shell still on, impossible to enjoy or eat) and chicken balls were just throw in a... More

Whenever you walk into a buffet at noon and there is no one else there, your first impulse should be to run for your life. I stayed and I have to admit that I wasn't too sorry. The buffet is very basic and not overly varied or well stocked but it's at least edible which is more than you can... More

terrioble customer service, when our food was delivered, everything was smashed and leaking, called them up and got no help, just a hang up from the manager
