Change of ownership, not as good

Not knowing the Chin family had nothing to do with this restaurant, I asked a Chinese gentleman if he was one of the Chin's. He rudely said no and walked off quickly. From what I understand the menu has changed a little and the food is not quite as good as when the Chin's grandson owned it. I will... read more

We have been frequenting this establishment for YEARS and will no longer waste our time or money due to POOR SERVICE. Last week I placed one order to go, placing the order was a hassle. When we went to pick it up, my wife waited five minutes, no acknowledgment whatsoever while she watched her order cool off. She returned to... More

One of my favorite places for Chinese food and especially soup, a head-clearing antidote for a long drive.

I have been coming here for years. I must admit thought every once in a while the food can be hit or miss. It really does depend on who is cooking. The food on rare occasion may be a bit bland for my taste buds, but for the most part they are pretty consistent and I like the food. Most... More

We have been going to ImperiL Dragon for several years and usually enjoy the experience- food and service. Last night we were very disappointed! We usually order the dinner for 2. Since my husband cannot eat shellfish, we request that the appetizer not contain any shrimp. We have always gotten extra ribs in place of the shrimp, with no problems.... More

Very extensive menu. Generous servings. Comfortable seating. We had the Chinese Duck, nice and crisp skin,not greasy, tender duck. The Lo Mein noodles were fine, and not heavy. The bar service was a nice addition to meal. The service was prompt and efficient. A very enjoyable evening.

Visited for a quick lunch. Had a sweet and sour chicken and a sweet and sour shrimp. Both were served with fried rice, hot and sour soup, and egg rolls. All were piping hot and very good. Sauces on the side were great too. In and out in 30 minutes and some leftovers to go too. $21 with tip for... More

Both my wife and I felt something was missing with or meals here. We definitely enjoy good Chinese food, something was off and we were unhappy with our food although we couldn't quite pinpoint what it was. The service was friendly and efficient, but not to the point that we would return again.

By the time the server made her 4th mistake, I wondered aloud to our friends about her level of experience, "Do you think she's ever done this before?" It started when she brought 2 tureens of soup -- we had ordered one. She started walking away, and I had to call her back to point out there was no ladle.... More
