We really enjoyed our meals. Had the seafood sizzler, spicy shrimp and lo-mien for entrees and a couple of sushi rolls and sashimi, dumplings and seaweed salad for appetizers. We all enjoyed and would go back if we are ever in the area

Had a late lunch with my wife. Surprised the small amount of people in the restaurant. My wife had the General Tso,s chicken. She liked it very much. I started with a California roll. Had Pad Thai for my main course. Clean restaurant. Pleasant service. Good food. We will be back.

Empire Asian Bistro is our go-to dining spot when we visit family in Harrisburg. The cuisine is varied, from conventional American Chinese choices, some Thai, and always fresh seafood. There seems to be a wide variety of sushi - but we are not fans of sushi, so can't offer views on that. The other dishes are very enjoyable, soups are... More

The service was great and the atmosphere was inviting and clean but the food was nothing special. AVERAGE!!!!! Most likely won't visit again as I have a favorite Asian restaurant I go to. Tried this one as it was something different.

This place made me consider raising my standards for sit down Asian. They have really interesting menu options and creative presentation that makes this a "dining out" experience rather than just a place to get food. Cannot recommend strongly enough.

Ordered the hibachi chicken and steak with the duck dish. Served cold and fatty undercooked duck. Tried to send back and waitress tried in broken English to convince us it might be the "coolness" of the dining room and ran away until she brought the check. Veggies not crisp and crunchy in a sauce. Used to be a special place... More

Enjoyed an excellent Thai Beef Green Curry and Noodle and Chicken Dish with outstanding wonton soup and vegetable rolls. We're not Sushi people, but people seemed to be enjoying. Plenty to take home for next day. Pleasant service, though owner or manager hovers over wait staff sternly...a little uncomfortable. We were pleased, but he seemed perturbed.

First of all if your going to own a restaurant atleast taste the food that you make. the food here was bland and the sushi was blah. It's a nice scene with a large sushi bar area and we were sat pretty quickly. The service was sporadic at times and other times we had to wave them down. Hopefully it... More
