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

After not going to the imperial for a while, me and my wife decided to go back, as last time we went the owners Edith and Matthew took very good care of us. Was disappointed to find they were on holiday, but the staff were just as helpful and accommodating. There was a large party at the time, so a... More

Very poor, poor ingredients, poor preparation, poor cooking, poor explanation. Just not good enough even by Scunthorpe standards. Better available all over Scunthorpe at a much lower price
