Whenever we visit my family on the Westbank, we have to stop here. I haven't found one good Chinese restaurant worth reviewing in Mississippi, so I always look forward to stopping here. This is the only place that makes Mandarin chicken with FRESH chicken and not frozen battered chicken pieces. The vegetables are crisp and not overdone. The sauces are... More

I was served a generous potion of shrimp lo mein. The service was fast and courteous. The food was delious. The only thing I would change are the noodles. The were very thin like angel hair. I prefer a larger noodle.

Husband & I stopped for early dinner. Ordered fried dumplings, egg rolls, triple delight and chicken fried rice. Really disappointed. Dumplings fried nice on outside, but no flavor inside. Same with egg rolls, no crispy veggies inside or flavor. The triple delight wasn't. Pork over cooked, tiny shrimp under cooked. Sauce had absolutely no flavor. Even putting soy sauce on... More

Better than average food and very large portions. Most dishes could feed two people. Nicely decorated.

We have not been to this restaurant in a year because we are trying to visit various cuisines in the city. We were seated promptly and greeted by our waitress. We ordered 3 entrees to share, Shrimp with lobster sauce, shrimp/chicken/beef lo mein and "garlic delight". The dinner was served in 15 minutes and the portions were large. The food... More

Have been to this restaurant about 30 times over the past 15 years or so. My last visit I felt that the food has been deteriorating. We were seated pretty quickly on a busy Saturday night. Ordered 4 entrees. Had egg rolls as appetizer. They were crispy on the outside but soft and chewy and almost raw on the inside.... More

This used to be my favorite Westbank Chinese restaurant for years. Yesterday I bought a dinner plate, General's shrimp with an extra egg role. THERE WAS A FLY COOKED INSIDE THE EGG ROLE!!! I was so grossed out. I called them and they wanted me to bring it back to prove it, and offered me another meal! REALLY??

There's a reason this place is a favorite. The food is great. Serving portion is liberal (you'll take some home. Good to split). Staff is friendly. Clean. Local favorite. When we want Chinese food we go no where else. I'd put this food up against any in NOLA.

I have been here many times after rounds of Golf at the nearby Stonebridge Country Club. This place has the best chinese food in the area in my opinion. If you love chinese then don't skip out on the Empress of China!

This places is my favorite chinese restaurant. We had a large party but was seated in a reasonable amount of time. Waitress was there immediately. Food followed promptly piping hot. Delicious as usual. From large egg rolls to the yummy sesame chicken to the pepper steak and everything in between was awesome. Place is tastefully decorated. Will go again soon.

Thank rjcvg
