Popped in on the off chance of getting a table, which we did. Ordered individual items off the menu rather than the set menu. Although every table in the restaurant was full the service was still quick and polite. Can thoroughly recommend here...but probably worth booking!! We went in at 6pm but within an hour it was full!

New Year's Eve Party.....wow....what a great start to 2015! The Imperial China was fully booked for this event but, in spite of the large number of diners, the food was superb (Excellent quality, well seasoned and the generous portions well presented, and the staff (Pleasant, efficient and smiling) coped remarkably well. The overall ambience, enhanced by live but not excessively... More

Great food, the boss man let us in without booking as long as we could eat in under an hour, and we really enjoyed it. Book early and enjoy a lovely meal

We use this Chinese on a regular basis and have never had a bad meal. The staff are very attentive and polite. Food can be a bit pricey but it is definitely worth the money. Always recommend this place if people ask for a good Chinese.
