Emperor's Palace on Wolf Road in Albany, NY is "Close", according to the sign posted on the door. Sad. My family and I enjoyed eating at this restaurant, from the time it was in downtown Albany, near Lark Street, until the last visit less than a year ago. I hope all of the staff are doing well.

We could tell all the curtains were drawn from the highway but once we entered the parking lot it was evident there was more closed than just the curtains! Too bad...assume it's over and out!

This unassuming Chinese restaurant across from the Colonie Mall has an large selection of Chinese vegetarian dishes. Many green Chinese veggies you won't find anywhere else outside of a Chinatown, but unlike many of those, here the menu is in English and they're happy to oblige you. By default, soups and some other dishes are made with chicken broth, but... More

We were shopping at the Bed, Bath and Beyond store close by and thought we would try Emperor's for lunch. Good chinese food at a very good price. Attentive service anticipating needs. What you get for $6 is hot tea, egg roll, your choice of soup, rice and your choice of entree. I ordered the General's shrimp - quite good.... More

The location is a bit hard to get to and the place is very simple and not grand at all. The food is so good though and not expensive at all.

It`s one thing when a restaurant is old and dated, but dirty and falling apart is something else. Our table was too close to the one behind us, but we couldn't move ours because it would come apart if we tried. The food was a little above mediocre, but the floor and the turntable on out table both felt sticky.... More

Husband insisted "best Chinese in the area" and he was right! Excellent selection..service was very attentive but discrete. BUT from the easy to miss driveway to the parking lot to the door is a neglected, weed sprouting, trash strewn, paint peeling and boards missing nightmare! Seat in booth was split with "stuffing" showing. I nearly backed out of actually EATING... More

We live not far from here and eat here often . Excellent soups . Tasty sauces . Fresh ingredients .The food is more like what we ate in Chinatown in Montreal , not the greasy weird stuff they sell in mall quick food pretend Chinese restaurants . Fully recommended !
