Never Disappoints

Been here on a number of occasions. Lunch and Dinner services. Never had a bad meal or dish (touch wood) in all our visits. Service is very quick and can almost be too quick when you want to take a little break and breathe for a minute without your plate being grabbed. Order bottled beer if your... read more

My husband and I visited Imperial China after work on a Thursday, when we got there at about 6pm it was very quiet but it continued to get busier over the course of an hour. It has a nice atmosphere and staff are friendly and attentive. The food is delicious and good value for money! My husband always raves about... More

I have been there twice, the first time I tried noodles with Schezuan King prawns which was good. The second time, I asked for a special meal to be cooked, which was a King prawn in a spicy red sauce, and they did try! We also had egg fried rice with, which was good. I was a bit put off... More

We are regular visitors to Imperial China as its a great way to wind down from a long week at work and the food is always freshly cooked and faultless. We always walk away completely stuffed! I'm not sure why anyone would order take-out from here and miss out on unlimited cooked-to-order food? With generally poor pickings to dine in... More

We often frequent this restaurant as they often have a set price menu which means you can order as much or as little as you want - great when you have two constantly hungry children. The staff are attentive and there's never any pressure to stop ordering! Our favourite are the starters which you can keep on ordering if you... More

Had a Chinese delivered tonight. Spent over an hour waiting for it then received a call from Eastern European driver asking for directions (shouldn't be hard as we've ordered from them for a few years and our phone logs our address when we order). Food arrives cold, I phone to ask for money back and am told driver on way... More

This is my local Chinese. Head here for all you can eat. However each dish is cooked freshly upon request. Food is fantastic and you have a massive menu to order from. Staff are friendly apart from the owner who seems to try and rush you in dnd out as quick as possible. Chicken satay is fantastic. Curry chicken dumplings... More

I am a regular user of this chinese restaurant and will recommend it to everyone. The restaurant is an eat all you can buffet style but the food is cooked fresh to order unlike others which leave the food out on hot plates. The service is quick and friendly and considering the place is usually packed to the rafters it... More

been here twice mow since Xmas. Both times the food was fantastic and the service really good. I love the idea of a buffet but with waiter/waitress service. Food was delicious and plenty of it. They were very accommodating by taking in a surprise birthday cake for my husband and supplying candles too. Looking forward to our next visit.
