Food was average. We found it to be on the bland side, but both agreed that it seemed freshly prepared. We had the food delivered; the total bill amount was not provided over the phone, nor was the method of payment asked for. When the delivery driver came, he informed us that he was not setup to take anything but cash. We had to phone back with our Visa. Food was fairly pricey for what we received.

We go here because there is no MSG and the food is fresh. I like the taste, especially their special house sauce on the chicken. I do agree with some reviewers though, that if you eat in the restaurant vs. take-out, you will see that the owner is somewhat harsh with her staff. And these are young girls who probably don't know any better as far as industry regulations. But, that's observation. Who knows...maybe on the side she isn't so bad as some of them have been working there a while.

The woman who runs this place is nothing short of nasty, yelling at staff, rude overall - Not acceptable at all. The food is quite good for the most part, prices are too high. We would return more often, however we don't like to see employees being treated badly.
Overall decent food for this area.

We have been going to the Empress of China for many years. They do not use MSG, which is a big plus for many people. Try their Hot and Sour Soup and their Cantonese Chow Mein, they are excellent. They also have a good buffet luncheon for under $10. Recently an organization I belong to had them cater our Chinese New Year's Banquet. Everyone loved the food and the selection. The owners spent a lot of time working with our people to help with appropriate selections for our audience and were very helpful and great to work with.
