The usual assortment of stir fries, sweet & sour dishes, chow mein and lo meins, and appetizers. I've been there several times, and none of my meals were memorable as especially good, or of any problems.

A long standing venue in Freeport run by a wonderful couple. Great food. Always predictably perfect. Generous portions. The best crab Rangoon ever! You won't be disappointed!

We often go here after church on Sunday's. It is always crowded and always good. They have a large selection of choices but I usually get the same thing over and over. Usually very fast and the food is always hot and fresh. Never had a bad meal yet and we go often.

I took family here since we all like Chinese food. Everyone ordered something different including sweet and sour chicken. (I would suggest getting the sauce on the side, by the way. It keeps your chicken from getting soggy) Anyway, no one went home hungry, we had plenty of left-overs, and everyone loved the food. They can't wait to come back.

Definitely the best Chinese food in town! Their Crab Rangoons are the best appetizer by far. The Egg Drop soup at lunch is always great too.

We ordered Garlic Chicken, Sesame Chicken, and Fried Rice. The Garlic Chicken was bland and no taste of garlic. The Sesame Chicken was soggy and bland. The Fried... More

I am a regular customer. Their Won Ton soup is really good and I love their BBQ Pork Fried Rice, too. You get seated immediately, and the wait staff are right their with hot tea and water. Patrons are well taken care of, and I bring all family and friends there for both lunch and supper. I highly recommend this... More

I've enjoyed Imperial Palace for years. The food is good and reasonably priced, and the people who work there are quite pleasant.
