Menu choices and quality of food is way above average. Dine here frequently with family and friends. Every menu choice is very good. Service is excellent. Great value even when very busy.

Had a really nice, quick, delicious lunch. We ordered both Sweet and sour chicken and Imperial chicken lunch dishes.... each person is has their own plate, so it is easy to share and serve from the original dishes.... we were able to share dishes... both were delicious. Much better alternative for lunch!

Had a very relaxing dinner tonight at Imperial Garden. The setting is very nice. The service is good. The menu has good selections and is not so large as to be cumbersome. The prices are very good especially considering the white linen tablecloths and attentive service. The food is good and servings are generous

I suggest you consider a drink at the bar and carryout. Atmosphere is great here. Quiet and peaceful. I live nearby and usually take home to watch news or sports. The owner is on site. Delightful staff.

The chines food here is bland. There is nothing authentic about it. It is not even good American Chinese food. I expected alot since their wall is covered in awards but was sadly disappointed. You're better off at Magic Wok off Atwood.

A very classic Chinese restaurant with fairly typical Chinese cuisine. Slightly overpriced compared to Chinese 'fast food', which the food is pretty similar, but very good none the less.

I live in Milwaukee, but eat at the Imperial Garden frequently when I come to Madison to visit family and friends. My family has dined there for years. We all love it! The food is absolutely excellent and we've never been disappointed. Very, very fresh ingredients. Vegetables are always perfectly cooked, never overcooked and SO fresh. Love the flavor of... More

Arrived in Middleton prior to a meeting, and we were hungry for Asian/Chinese cuisine. Imperial Garden held the highest rating among other restaurants of this cuisine, and wasn't far from where we were staying, so we were eager to try it. As we entered, we passed through a doorway covered with "Best" of Madison, from floor to ceiling. This caused... More

After reading oodles of reviews, I took my boys to have a nice Chinese meal. We ordered a duck dish, an appetizer platter, a shrimp dish, and a noodle dish. The pork tasted old on the appetizer dish, but the egg rolls were excellent. The duck tasted old and unpleasant. The shrimp dish was good. The noodles two way dish... More
