Consistently Good

I am never disappointed when I go to Empire Hunan. The service is efficient; the menu diverse with Chinese, Japanese and Thai specialties. Their dumplings are great and the sushi about the freshest I have had. After 5:00 parking is no problem on Cedar Lane. Take out also speedy and delish. I... read more

My husband and I wanted a Chinese meal after attending a movie in Teaneck. We don't know the area all that well so I jumped on my phone and found Empire Hunan, which seemed to have good reviews. The decor is fine - somewhat casual but white tablecloth. Our meals were fantastic! In fact I even had a dream about... More

This place is very clean, great service and fresh, delicious food at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended for a romantic date for 2 or a family meal for 10. BYOB and enjoy! I've eaten here many times and have yet to be disappointed. Great place.

I have been going to Empire Hunan for 25 years. Not only it is a lovely cozy restaurant with nice ambiance, but the food is consistently great. I love their soft shell crabs in garlic sauce…the vegetable egg foo young is outstanding…wonderful sauce! It is a relaxing restaurant…the help is very nice…and the management caring. I also order in for... More

Do you want sushi or Chinese? Both are available in this little restaurant, tucked just off of Cedar Lane. What it lacks in size it makes up for in freshness and taste. Make a reservation if you want to eat at a popular hour.

This small but great restaurant has the best food on Cedar Lane!!! Can't imagine going anywhere else when I am in the area. Plus, it is a BYOB restaurant. That just put the icing on the cake. The workers are very friendly. Great place to go when you are in Teaneck.

Ate lunch at Empire Hunan. The restaurant offers an extensive Japanese and Chinese lunchtime menu that is competitively priced. I ordered from the Japanese menu based on a recommendation from one of my dining companions. I observed what other patrons ordered and believe I would have had a better lunch had I ordered from the Chinese menu. My Bento Box... More

The stirfry dishes are nothing special - rather bland, although the ingredients are always fresh. However, my husband says the egg foo yung is some of the best he's ever had. I usually order the chicken and shrimp with mango. It's one of the better dishes although the mango seems to have sugar added to it. There really isn't a... More

A local chinese restaurant that pits no creativity into it's preparation. Dishes are gummy or tastless. It is a BYO and that's it's best quality if you bring decent wine.
