Table for two not enough to bother with.

Booked for a meal in December a table for two. It was initially very quiet and we ordered and had a lovely meal. It really was nice food. But it seemed as the restaurant got busier we were forgotten. I will add it was apparently the busiest Friday of the year, but no one asked us if we wanted a... read more

Having moved away I hadn't visited Imperial for a few years so I decided to have an anniversary meal with my wife here and although the decor still looks as it did there is a lovely authentic feel to this restaurant. We had a set meal for 2 and the waitress was happy for us to change one of the... More

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 .

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 enjoyed our visit... More

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
