Just had a mid week meal here with my dad The service is excellent and the prices are great but the starters were only average and a bit greasy Meals nice but not outstanding. Might be back but not sure as I'm not the biggest Chinese food fan and only like a few really amazing places

Back in the North East and back to the Imperial. I was here a year ago and rated this restaurant as excellent. Went back this time and food and service as good as ever but the restaurant has been refurbished which adds even more to the delight of eating wonderful Chinese food in Low Fell.
