Always a Go-To favorite

You can't go wrong with Empire Hunan. I've been going there for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Teaneck and even after moving 30-40 minutes away, my family and I would still drive down just to eat here. The only reason we stopped going was because they opened another location in Fair Lawn... read more

Great cuisine. Cozy dining area. It's difficult to find a park during lunch hours. I enjoy their many selections, especially the shrimp dishes and egg drop/wonton soups.

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 try to meet for business meetings here when... 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.

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.
