To begin the food was cold/tepid. The rice was the worse rice I have ever seen, being very very soggy and starchy. The crispy... More

The food is exceptional, clean(not oily) and fresh. Only problem, tough to get a seat!!!! book first - everyone knows how good this place is!

Good value chinese food. Attentive and polite service as you would expect. Ate till we were full. Duck was very good. Very crowded for a weekday, suggest booking. Some of dishes were spicy, which I can't eat, but I had more than enough.

We returned for a birthday celebration recently and had an excellent meal, once again. The service is second to none and we were welcomed back like old friends. The staff always make such a fuss of our children too and really included in the whole experience. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Chinese food and good service... More

Highly recommend this restaurant if you are a fan of Chinese food. They catered for us too as we had a person with allergies. Some interesting items on the menu too and very nice setup.

After returning to the New Forest Area after a few years away we returned to celebrate a family birthday at the Imperial China, result brilliant. Most of the same staff who remembered us, food first class as we remembered nothing to worry about for a terrific night out. Book early so not to be disappointed.
