The restaurant changed hands in June, and is no longer quite the same quality. I always enjoyed coming here, but now prefer la Louna, round the corner. The new owner tries hard, but fusses unnecessarily, and the little extras you used to get before and after the meal have disappeared.

This place never lets you down. You always get a friendly welcome and the food is superb. There is a takeaway service as well if you wish to eat elsewhere.

Who would have thought you'd find a great little place like this in South France. Congratulations to the owners who appear to do it all themselves and manage even when it gets busy, and it does.

After the positive reviews, L'Imperial came as a huge disappointment. Anyone who thinks its food is superb or authentic has clearly never eaten great Asian food. Apart from the spring rolls, which were quite good, it was pretty poor. The chicken satay was awful and its attempt at a Thai beef salad was a disgrace. It would have the Thais... More

Ideal restaurant for lunch. They even have a vegetarian menu option. Only downside is that they do not accept cards.

In town where, as you would expect, almost every restaurant offers the same menu it's nice to have something different. The dishes are vietnamese/chinese and all are good. The don't take credit cards.

After sampling many others, I still regard this as the best restaurant in Mirepoix. The welcome is always exceptionally warm, and you are served with an exchanting smile. The food is always well cooked and very nicely presented. Other restaurateurs in Mirepoix eat here, which speaks volumes for the quality.

This is a vietnamese/chinese restaurant and is absolutely delicious - and the menu has been translated into English which helps!

Having moved to France over 9 months ago - I had been craving some authentic Asian cuisine. We had tried a couple of other places, which turned out to be buffet style, and bland on the pallet, so my expectations here were quite low. What a suprise it was then, to recieve such a friendly welcome, and perfectly cooked delicious... More
