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.

If you like Chinese, these guys are good. They deliver to your hotel too. They have a brunch on Sundays - champagne and all

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

Rather disappointed....I read all these good reviews and figured it would be a nice meal. This is the equivalent of Chinese fast food....very ordinary stuff you could get at a cheapo Chinese takeaway in any town. The beef and chicken are rubbery/ stretchy, the sauces are loaded with salt ( and I generally dont mind salty food, this was excessive... More

We go to this restaurant at least 3 or 4 times a year. The family that runs it is very hands on and friendly. Usually very busy at lunch and dinner time but it is worth the wait. I usually go with my family. I have been to their brunch. That is very busy. I didn't think it was worth... More

Decided to try out this restaurant, though I had reservations about doing so. One finds Chinese restaurants just about anywhere, but good Chinese restaurants are usually found in big cities, like my native San Francisco. I opened the menu here and found Gai-lon. I asked if it was the real thing and was told that it was. To make the... More
