Serves lunch buffet and a la carte dinner. The buffet is a variety of tasty Chinese and Japanese food. They have fish, shrimp, crab, chicken, pork, and beef dishes. Very good food for the price.

Went one time for lunch with some coworkers. When we went to pay my debit was not working properly. Turned out my bank's system was temporarily down. I asked them to run my card again. We had just been paid that day so I knew it wasn't due to funds. The owner came and yelled at me "you do not... More

All good are cooked like Mexico good. If I want to eat Mexican food, I would have visited a Chinese restaurant.

I had the lunch buffet. It was decent ... much better than the other Chinese buffet in Laredo. General's chicken was much hotter than everywhere else I've had it. It was actually TOO spicy for my tastes. I don't think there was a lot on the bar that wasn't hot; with either the little red Chinese peppers, or jalapeños. There... More

Several years ago we loved the Emperor Garden but things have changed. We still stop there when in Laredo but not sure why we go back. Service is very good, but clean up of the buffet is lacking, kids with their hands in the ice cream tubs, etc.

If this is Chinese food I'm Chinese then. No all means this food is as far of Chinese food as anybody can get. They just don't use ginger, a fundamental ingredient in this food is missing in most of their dishes, if not all. It was the only choice for a while, but now with the emergence of some Asian...

The buffet is okay, some entrees are kept fresh but others are not on the buffet line. They do offer alacarte menu but it is pricey. Overall for the prices and service I wouldn't recommend eating here again. Not overly impressed.

If you like Chinese food, this is the only place you can actually get a nice variety of Chinese dishes in one place. They have a buffet, but you are better off ordering a la cart. Warning: never order something on the buffet a la cart or they will just grab it off the buffet and plate it. Order something... More

The food from the buffet is not that good. Order from the menu, it is much better. I ordered the fried dumplings, the hot and sour soup which was Ok. The mushi pork was good and the plum sauce was good too.
