We went there because on a friend request. With that few customers on a Friday night, it is really hard to keep up with freshly cooked food. The tastes were average and the quality of the food was a bit below average. The service was...More

I have been 3 times - 2 times was great - 1 time not so good... would I go again - Yes! It's basically an average Chinese buffet - nothing really stands out

We last visited a month ago. While this was once a good buffet, it has gone downhill. The lamb and beef dishes are tough, food on the steam tables not replenished often enough and consequently not particularly good anymore. The sashimi offerings remain good, as...More

We were there on a weeknight at 6pm, but the place seemed empty. Some of the food was cold and old. Melons tasted sour. Meat was chewy. Ice cream scoops were all broken, which doesn't seem like a big deal until you're bashing the scoop...More

We use to come here when we would get coupons but now the price just isn't worth it. For a few dollars more you can go to Mandarin and have much higher quality.

I have not been to this restaurant in a while, but decided to try it again. This is your typical Chinese buffet meal that seems to go up in price and down in quality. The selection of food was ok, but the portions in each...More

I belong to an organization and we have had a private Christmas party at Imperial. There is a room that they gave us exclusively. Enjoyed the evening a lot.
