Went with friends for a midweek meal. Absolutely delicious. Everything we ordered was cooked well, nicely presented and used fresh, good quality ingredients. The staff were pleasant and the service was very good. Best Chinese I've had for a long time and at very reasonable prices.

Arrived at the imperial china at 13.55, to be greeted by a waitress telling us we close at 2.30 so you can only have one course. We ordered 3. Main courses to compensate which she was not happy about. When I asked for prawn crackers I thought we where going to get kicked out! When the food came it was... More

After eating out all week in Lyndhurst, this was by far the best meal we had all week. The locals recommended this restaurant and they were not wrong. Excellent food, and prompt but not rushed service. My husband and I had a set menu and can recommend it.

I've heard this in one of the best Chinese in the New Forest. We were staying in Forest Lodge in Lyndhurst so this restaurant made a nice change from pubs and hotel food. The menu selection was good and service very friendly. The seabass with ginger was amazing and also the sizzling dishes we tried. I would stay away from... More

Our !most recent visit was a Wednesday night, and thankfully we had booked a table, as every table was full by 8PM. The service and the food however was as if we were the only ones... More

Decided to book the restaurant for our family of five after a day at Peppa Pig World and must say was delighted. The good was excellent, service impeccable and value was decent. We're not fussed in having to serve two adults and three kids aged 11, 8 and 4. Highly recommend. Parking is nearby.

Four of us ate at this restaurant while we were staying in Lyndhurst. Firstly as it had been such a hot day so when we booked and found out they had air conditioning it was an added bonus. We all ordered the fixed meal for 4 menu with just one change that they were more than happy to do. There... More
