Great lunch deals

Go for lunch. My husband and I love to eat here during lunch. We both recommend the Lucky Family. I like mine spicy :) The staff always have great attitudes. Sunday's they have a Champagne brunch but I've only been to it a few times.

Love the service and food here. The restaurant relocated from a defunct shopping center and has been around for many years. It is definitely a staple for better dining in Bishop.

The atmosphere is harmonious, the food excellent, the prices good, the service prompt, and the wait staff makes you feel very welcome. I felt so comfortable and relaxed, it was easy to lose track of time.

I love Chinese food, but the food here was tasteless. Our waiter took our order, brought our food and never returned until it was time for the bill. The food was like a rock in my stomach all evening. I'd recommend that you eat elsewhere while in Bishop. (I heard that the Thai place was much better.)

Uninspired and very expensive. Their sunday brunch is not worth the price. Some of the menu items are well cooked but some are just nasty.

Sweet and sour chicken was dark meat so had them substitute white meat. I did not like the way it came out and didn't eat it. Might be good if you like dark meat chicken. They did offer to substitute something else, but I turned them down. Thus the avg. Rating instead of poor.

Horrible food! My husband had to leave his whole dish of beef with sesame. It seesm that the whole family of the owneners were eating there with tons of screaming children. The waiters very friendly, I felt sorry for them. But the food is the worst I have eaten in a looong time.

As mentioned in previous reviews, we have been through Bishop many times over the past three decades. Imperial Gourmet is an unexpected surprise. This past summer we stopped over night in Bishop twice and ate there both times. This coming fall and winter we will pass through Bishop and dine there again. We have traveled through China several times and... More

Bishop has lots of fast food restaurants to choose from and it was nice to be able to find a sit down Chinese restaurant. We tried the egg rolls, pork chow mien and fried rice. The chow mien included generous slices of pork and the egg rolls were crispy and not too greasy. The staff was pleasant and our food... More
