Enjoyable

Visited with family for a get together. Still the same décor as years ago, but still has a good ambience about it. Staff very good, drinks of a good standard, & nice & relaxing. The food was of a very high standard, not the biggest of portions but the quality is the key thing. We all thoroughly... read more

They dont seem to be able to handle a delivery service. Waited nearly 2 hours after being told it would take 40 mins. After about an hour i called to be told it was nearly there before i even gave any details of who i was. When food finally arrived all four of us ended up leaving most of it... More

What an enjoyable experience an evening in the Imperial really is. From the warm greeting on entry through to the efficient and very attentive staff to the wonderful food on offer ,all served in lovely surroundings. O.K. its not the cheapest restaurant but quality rarely is .

My Girlie and I decided to have a meal out in Scunthorpe, a Chinese for a change, and came upon the Imperial Cantonese. (Upon reflection... not the best plan) Anyway ... Nice surroundings .. Nice Staff .. Very average food ... No specials .. Nothing sparkling .. Not going again. Only as good as an average Take Away....Costs lots more... More

We were actually going to a concert in Scunthorpe & had planned to eat at another restaurant, but upon arrival it was closed due to family problems... We did not want to be too far away from the concert venue, so on a cold damp evening we wandered into the Imperial Cantonese Restaurant.....not having any real expectations....just wanting some hot...

Very, very unimpressed. Every Chinese menu everywhere is exactly the same!! And this is no different. The place has no atmosphere and, although the staff tried hard, they couldn't bring it to life in any way that would ever want me to go back. Being truthful, the cost for what we ate made my eyes water!! The food was ok,... More

We came for my boyfriend's birthday, as we did last year, and there's a reason we returned. From the moment we walked in, the service was brilliant. Drinks were brought over to us along with the nicest prawn crackers I've ever tasted! Seriously, I didn't think prawn crackers could be so nice! Ample time allowed to order as we can... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before but the meal was so good last night that I had to mention it again! The mixed starters of spare ribs, spring rolls, sesame toast, satay chicken, crispy won tons and crispy 'seaweed' was prepared perfectly, and the extra salt and pepper prawns were excellent. The fish in chicken and prawn sauce as a... More
