It took 30 minutes to get our appetizers. I had the crab rangoon, they were nothing but cream cheese. Not a single shred of carrot or crab in any of the 6. It was another 30 minutes to receive our entrées. I had the Shrimp Pad Thai, it was bland & not a single peanut in it, not even a... More

I found Empire on a recent business trip as my go-to sushi place was closed on Mondays. I am always a little nervous about getting sushi at a new restaurant. Ok, maybe I'm paranoid. Their menu includes Chinese, sushi, Japanese, and Thai. With so many different types of food, I didn't have high expectations. But I took the leap and... More

Food is always excellent and a variety of Japanese, Thai and Chinese. Very good sushi. Service can be slow, but friendly.

Nice large restaurant, nicely decorated. Service was good. We got there early and were a little worried at it being so quiet, but it was much busier by the time we left. Loved the curry peanut sauce and would order the same thing again. Complimentary fried wontons when we sat down we're tasty and a nice touch.

Me and my daughter are highly allergic to fish/shelfish. They made sure that our food was not cooked in the same oil as fish. They did a great job acomodating us and making sure we were ok. Highle recommended!!

great rolls, inventive, tasty, generous sized! High quality sushi, fresh and sweet. Chinese food is also good, but we go for the sushi...Sundays are even better as the sushi is half off!

I can sum this place up in one sentence. Take the cheap, Americanized Asian food at the Giant grocery store, put it in a fancy building with very slow service, and that's Empire Asian Bistro. Sadly, this is supposedly one of the best Asian places in Harrisburg...which only goes to tell you that the Asian selection in Harrisburg is very... More

Have been here a few times. Finally getting around to writing the review. The food is excellent. Nice selection of dishes from various Asian cuisines. Chinese dishes and sushi are especially delightful. The fried rice is fantastic! Good service.
