I would never order from here again. I ordered 5 dishes and out of the 5, 4 of them all tasted the same, like the noodles and rice were cooked with dish water.

We always stop here for dim sum when in Langley. It's easy to order as the large menu has photos of all the items. We usually have the 'basics' - the siu mai is oversized and fresh, the stuffed eggplant is delicious, the squid is nicely seasoned and cooked to perfection, the green beans and noodles are delicious. I have... More

NO. 1 chinese restaurant in Langley. I don't know why some other people only give it one or two stars. I have been there several times and will return soon.

For the past several years I have gone to this restaurant and been happy with the food and service. Very happy. Last night we went for a 90th birthday party with 9 people and we ordered one of the set menu specials. The food, for the most part, was very disappointing. The broccoli dish had only slice stems and no... More

Their dumplings are excellent especially the Lobster, Prawn and Pork ones! Their rice flour rolls with beef and cilantro are excellent as are their deep fried spareribs with peppery salt! Mango pudding is fresh, hot and flaky!

We went to the Empire Garden with our ESL class.We enjoyed our time but service was a little on the slow side.Quality of food prepared was good.Not what I was used to at Western style Chinese Restaurants but still tasty.Cost was expensive I think compared to other Chinese Restaurants.Restaurant was kept clean and decor was suitable.

My only complaint about this place would be that the service is a little bit slow but it is well worth it because every dish that I have ordered has being very satisfying so far and I eat here at least twice a week on my lunch breaks... I am a vegetarian so have yet to try their meat dishes... More

We ordered set menu for 3 tables of 28 people. Slow service. Food below par but the worst was when they substituted a vegetable dish with broccoli stems without even informing us that they were out of the vegetable dish that was listed on set menu. And the manager didn't care when we complained about the vegetable dish. He just... More

I recently tried a take-out dinner from Empire Garden, primarily because I was staying at the Holiday Inn Express next door. The menu seemed good with a large selection of standard Western and traditional Chinese dishes. I liked that they had a lot of vegetarian choices as well. However, I was very let down by the food quality. My spring... More

Dropped by on a Sunday around 11:30 am and the place was pretty full but we got a table right away. We have come here a few times now and always get the steamed prawn and the pork shiu-mai dumplings as they are so huge, hefty and very tasty! Also tried the deep fried prawn spring rolls this time but... More
