Have been to this restaurant about 30 times over the past 15 years or so. My last visit I felt that the food has been deteriorating. We were seated pretty quickly on a busy Saturday night. Ordered 4 entrees. Had egg rolls as appetizer. They were crispy on the outside but soft and chewy and almost raw on the inside.... More

This used to be my favorite Westbank Chinese restaurant for years. Yesterday I bought a dinner plate, General's shrimp with an extra egg role. THERE WAS A FLY COOKED INSIDE THE EGG ROLE!!! I was so grossed out. I called them and they wanted me to bring it back to prove it, and offered me another meal! REALLY??

There's a reason this place is a favorite. The food is great. Serving portion is liberal (you'll take some home. Good to split). Staff is friendly. Clean. Local favorite. When we want Chinese food we go no where else. I'd put this food up against any in NOLA.

I have been here many times after rounds of Golf at the nearby Stonebridge Country Club. This place has the best chinese food in the area in my opinion. If you love chinese then don't skip out on the Empress of China!

This places is my favorite chinese restaurant. We had a large party but was seated in a reasonable amount of time. Waitress was there immediately. Food followed promptly piping hot. Delicious as usual. From large egg rolls to the yummy sesame chicken to the pepper steak and everything in between was awesome. Place is tastefully decorated. Will go again soon.

Using Trip Advisor, and sine it was close to our hotel after a long drive, we tried this spot, in an unassuming location in a small strip mall. After watching some wonderful looking dishes being carried by us, we ordered, and were not dissapointed. We discoverd that one entree, with egg rolls, is more than enough for two, particularly since... More

There isn't anything else to say about the Empress of China except to say that it is not a touristy kind of place. It is a HIGH quality, reasonably priced local New Orleans favorite. If you are in New Orleans and have a yen for Chinese food, you cannot do better than this place. In my opinion there isn't a... More
