Emeril's Tchoup Chop (pronounced chop-chop) is the hottest table in Orlando, and Lagasse's second location at Universal Studios. The name offers a hint of New Orleans' famous Tchoupitoulas Street, home to Emeril's flagship restaurant, and the bold culinary term "chop". Located at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers a dining experience unlike any other created by the famous master chef. In both atmosphere and menu, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers diners a unique and exotic journey through the Pacific Seas with a delicious experience of Asian and Polynesian influences complemented by his signature bold flavors - a perfect complement for the Royal Pacific Resort. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no tank tops for men. Bernard Carmouche, Culinary Director, and Lee Kaleel, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.

One of the best

We come every time we're in Orlando and it never disappoints. I've had some of the best meals of my life here. Cocktails are pricy, but they're craft made and a lot of work goes into them. The feel of the restaurant flows very nicely and is most certainly worthy of Emril's name.

Being 8 my son did not like the food served him and the chef made him something else not on the menu. Our food was wonderful and for desert they brought my son a banana split and... More

We were not sure what to order so we asked our waiter for his recomendations. This was a good idea. He suggested Korean beef skewers for an appetizer and the sea scallops for one entrée and duck duck goose for the other. the latter is lightly smoked duck breast with foi gras inside a potsticker served with gooseberry jam.

Waiterswere very informative, attentive and yet let us pace our evening to be able to relax and enjoy. Started with cocktails, delicious but a bit pricey, Mai-tai was so good I had 2!

Two similar names, two separate visits, two totally different experiences. During a recent stay at the Lowe's Royal Pacific Hotel in Orlando on the spur of the moment my family and I went to Emeril's Pan Asian restaurant. We were immediately enchanted by the excellent cheerful service, assistance with our meal selection and friendly conversation. The food was right on... More

My boyfriend and I chose this restaurant for a "night before Valentine's dinner" as we were staying at the Royal Pacific for a last-minute Valentine's weekend "staycation". I had never been here, but had heard great things. To start, the atmosphere is top-notch. I absolutely loved the decor and the lighting was darkened and romantic. The restaurant was lively, but...

Emeril's are not all the same. This one, at least at this time, has a bit of a Polynesian and/or Asian spin. Many dishes on the menu show this inclination. We had a large assortment of first courses. Most were good to very good but a few were weaker. The wine selection was good and with a few lower end

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service at this outpost of the Emeril empire in one of the Universal Studios' hotels. I wrongly assumed that it would be medicore being associated with a theme park. The food was creative and good, the service was excellent despite being crowded and the interior décor was top notch.

I'm not hard to please, but this restaurant's food was terrible. It started with terrible edamame which was curiously fried in what tasted like popcorn butter from the movies. The sushi was a bizarre sweet concoction with "toppings" that I've seen in yogurt shops. The kids meals came out 1 hour after they were taken. The fried rice was bland... More
