Authentic and delicious

I have stopped by this restaurant several times for take-out, and had the pleasure of sitting in and enjoying some sticky rice from their dim sum menu. This is a traditional Chinese restaurant with the large circular tables for large parties and families, like one would see in Vancouver's Chinatown... read more

Having lived in Richmond for most of my life, I knew I was going to be leaving behind some great Chinese food when we moved to Langley, but I was clearly wrong. Not too long ago we gave Empire Garden a shot and we were hooked! We have since taken friends there and I have also blogged about it on... More

Foo young excellent, signature orange beef to die for! Have eaten there at least half a dozen times and always have had excellent dinners.

This restaurant is consistently excellent. Our favourite is Peking Duck which we have had several times and it always is delicious. We were in Beijing in March and had Peking Duck there that wasn't close to the flavour and presentation at Empire Garden. You must try Empire Garden, it is fantastic!

Very good quality food, with some unique recipes. The Dim Sum is prepared fresh, in-house and is excellent.

Yes they serve the typical North American style Chinese food, chow mein ,sweet sour pork, fried rice, etc but if your more adventurous try some of the traditional Chinese dishes instead. You won't be disappointed. The menu has lots of great pictures of most of their feature dishes so if your new to authentic Asian food its pretty easy to... More

We went with a family group of 10. The food was very good but the service was adequate at best. The ginger beef was a real favorite for all of us. We will probably return again.

We had a family group of six who wanted Chinese and we had heard about Empire. We ordered 7 or 8 dishes - and asked for them to be all brought at once. They brought 2 dishes. The first two serving plates were empty and about 10 minutes went by and they brought 2 more. They were done before they... More

Food is very good but the service is poor which is why I give it 3 stars. It's always busy whenever we go but it seems like they are always short staffed. The managers are clearing & setting tables when they should be ensuring their customers are taken care of instead of ignoring them. I guess they figure business is... More

We were staying at the hotel next door, looked it up, and were put off by the bad reviews. We walked past it on the way to the excellent Vietnamese in the same building, to find it packed, with lots of Asian people. Trip Advisor rarely steers us wrong, but we decided to try it for lunch the next day.... More
