We dined here on a Thursday night and as it happened we were the only people eating in the restaurant. Our group was 2 adults and 3 kids. The first thing that struck us was that it is quite expensive for a Chinese restaurant. The food was good and the service was decent. Our bill for 5 was almost €90.... More

We really enjoyed the meal, I had tiger prawns in wasabi and my fiancée had the chicken and cheese rolls for starter, both were lovely. The main course chicken and duck Thai curries were lovely too. Overall though we found the prices a bit too high considering its a country restaurant. There was a local woman having a huge argument... More

Although the restaurant was slightly more expensive than any other restaurants in Lahinch, its service and food were incredibly awesome. Atmosphere there was nice - suited best for couples. The food was worth the price because of the restaurant setting, unlike another Chinese restaurant (Pearl Chinese restaurant) next door, which provided awful service & food. Fillet beef with Szechuan sauce... More

Have been to the emperor quite a few times. I always enjoy the food here. The chicken cheese spring rolls are to die for, they really are beautiful and very well presented. The amber fire beef is in a world of it's own, spectacular, I highly recommend it. The schezuan beef is also amazing. I love spicy food and these... More

Had it while traveling to Lahinch in July. Firstly, overprice. Easily I can find cheaper and better Chinese food of better standard in Lahinch. Appearance of food seems passable but taste is disappointing. not only me....total 5 of us. Staff attitude is passable for a empty restaurant when I was there. 2nd attempt at takeaway a few days proven to... More

We got takeaway and it was poor throughout. The children were not even inclined to eat the noodles. Kung po special certainly was not. Shredded duck was passable only Not impressed

I was very suprised to see all the negative comments about this restaurant. I loved it, but it is far too expensive. The staff are attentive, maybe a bit too much so. We got peking crispy duck for starter between myself and my wife. It was gorgeous. After that i got king prawn kung po which was really good but... More

When I saw the prices on their sit-down menu I couldn't believe it. Eventually we got a takeaway that was OK as chinese take-aways go and 1/2 price compared to the restaurant menu; We had worked out that a meal for 2 adults and 2 kids was going to work out around 80-90 euros!!!! No way! I have to add... More
