“Good value, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We frequent this Chinese restaurant for good reason, the food is tastes good and the staff is very friendly! The hot and sour soup is the best one I've had and there's just plenty of menu items to choose from. Serving size is also HUGE!

I'd also like to mention that I went here with my boyfriend who had a knee surgery and doctor's orders is to keep his leg up. So we asked for an extra chair to put his leg up and they were very accommodating. In another week or so, we visited again. The staff remembered and already had an extra chair for him when they set up our table. How nice is that?

“Great neighborhood chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I have been here many.many times. Love their hot & sour soup and the Wor wonton soup. Usually order from the "family dinner" menu and ALWAYS have left overs. They are great about substitutions, ie. sweet & sour chicken instead of pork, etc.

Also if there are two and you aren't very hungry just order the combo plate and add a cup of soup and share the meal. If you are alone, the combo meal is a hearty plate of food...you won't go away hungry!

Also, the place is clean and you get good service here. It can get pretty busy, but they are efficient at getting people thru. 90% of the time the service is great, every once in awhile there is a glitch...but everyone has an off day sooner or later. Overall, this is one of my favorite "go to" places.

“Good value, but watch the oil”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

We haven't been to this location for a while and decided to give it a try as our usual 'haunt' was getting to hum drum. To obtain a comparison with other restaurants we tried some of our usual favorites. We found the Imperial Dinner B to have many of the items we wanted to try - and at $13.95 per person it is a good value.
Service was prompt, and very friendly.

However, the appetizers (foil wrapped something), deep fried roll and fried shrimp were all just mediocre, and the chicken chow mien was extremely oily - much beyond our taste.
While the Wor Won Ton soup was different (darker broth, no bock choy) it was flavorful and
we would try it again.
We did enjoy the Mongolian Beef and Sesame Chicken - the sauces were very flavorful.
All of the food was served piping hot - no wait time on the shelf in the kitchen!

We will go back, but be very selective in our choices to avoid any dishes that are simply prepared in oil with no sauce. Way to oily for our taste.
