This used to be my favorite place to eat in Freeport, but the ownership has changed and so has the quality. The place doesn't seem as clean and there are new people on staff that don't seem very friendly. The food is hit or miss;...More

I understand nothing else has changed besides the owners, but it doesn't seem the same... soup tastes different, smaller portions. The regular waitstaff is great, some new employees leave something to be desired. Crab rangoons are still the best in town!

Chinese can vary so by establishments, but I think Imperial Palace is the best in the area. My favs are the Sesame Beef and Crab Rangoons.

Great food, however their customer service sucks! When there is an issue with your meal they refuse to correct it!

Best Chinese dining in Freeport. If you go you have to get an order of crab rangoon. Best around. Enough dining for medium sized group, along with a good ambience and service, this is a nice place if you're looking for dinner with the family

We arrived around 12:30 today to a VERY full parking lot. Having been to this restaurant a number of times previously, I knew this wouldn't be a problem. The restaurant is fairly good in size, and able to accommodate a large number of people. Tea...More
