This is the second time I ordered take-out from this restaurant. And each time I ordered 2 shrimp rolls with our meal. But, they only gave me one shrimp roll with my first order and I didn't bother complaining about it. But, they did it again! I'm beginning to think that they do this deliberately. Terrible service negates anything good... More

I saw a neighbor walking up to his front door with a bag of Empire food and asked about it. He said, " I just love Chinese- but I only get egg drop soup there." HHHMM. I live near the Empire Chinese Restaurant and was excited to try it. They had left a brochure on our door a couple of... More

Two and a half stars would be best... I can't imagine anyone actually eating in this storefront restaurant as the bare tables and open kitchen are as uninviting as possible. But for take-out, the selection is large, the staff barely speaks English, leading you to believe the food may be authentic, and the service is fast and pleasant. I ordered... More

If you have never had good Chinese food, then you may like this place. Otherwise keep looking. Everything was below average.

If there were no other Chinese restaurants in Tallahassee, I would return the next time I had a craving for Chinese, But of course there are many options in Tallahassee for Chinese and Asian, and I will try most or all of them before I return to Empire Chinese. The FOOD is AT BEST AVERAGE, maybe a... More

This was my first time eating there and I was very pleased. The food was hot, fresh, and delicious. If you like sweet tea, then I suggest trying theirs. Its home made and is the best sweet tea I've ever had! NO LIE!

We are regular customers and they treat us like friends. If you call ahead, you food awaits piping hot within 15-20 min.

We both think their white rice... More
