I ordered probably the most basic combo they have; combo A for 1 which has the sweet and sour pork, chow mein, fried shrimp, and pork rice. The food to me was disappointing. way too much sauce on the sweet and sour, too much batter on the shrimp, rice was good, and the chow mein was bland. My biggest concern... More

This is not the first visit as I like to give restaurants chances as all have good and bad days. Ordered the house chowmein which was gross to be kind. Honestly not sure what fish or meat was in there but it's now in the garbage. Along with the beef and broccoli which was bright enough to be seen in... More

Ordered from both regular and dim sum menu. The Kung-Bo Shrimp w/veg was tasty and spicy but had a ton of chili peppers, the BBQ pork fried rice was good, the Gai Lan (Chinese broccoli) was ok and the Pork wonton soup could be better. The dim sum menu has pictures of all that is available and it was easy... More

Don't waste your money and time with this restaurant. I ordered a take out and they told me, it would be ready in 10 min. 45 minutes later, I still had to ask for my food and they kept going to the back and saying a few more minutes. I asked to cancel my order and refund my money; and... More

Food was OK but it came in 3 'saucer size' dishes . The smallest servings I've ever had in any chinese restaurant! I felt like I was taken! Don't make the same mistake we did. Order three separate dishes from the menu, spend maybe $5 more and have 1/2 your servings to take home. We left HUNGRY! Very Disappointed!

We recently moved to the area and I was worried about finding a decent chinese restaurant but this was a great find. Something for everyone on the menu and its all very good. I would recommend the black fish steak.

Let me start by saying that this review is not my first time at this restaurant. We had a work luncheon at Christmas of 2012 and I did think it was good, not GREAT, but good. So when we had guests from out of state come in July I thought why not. They hadn't had dim sum since they left... More

I have eaten at the Empire Gardens four times. Two of these meals were special dozen course Chinese New Year luncheons where the food was spectacular. I've become hooked on the Lobster with minced garlic sauce as well as the Peking Duck in all its various courses, including the delicious Lettuce Wraps and the crispy skin in pancakes with hoisin...

Plenty of empty tables when we came in and they made us wait for a half hour. Once we sat down we waited 20 minutes before the came to take our order. The food took about another 45 minutes and only half the food came out and it was cold. The service was the horrible. We have eaten here several... More
