“Still the Best!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We were back in the North East for a visit recently, having being away for a couple of years, and are happy to confirm that the Imperial is STILL the best for Chinese cuisine. Food, staff, cleanliness second to none.

“Never mind Chinatown!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Come to Low Fell. I've been to restaurants in Chinatown in Newcastle, and although they are good, they can't live up to the Imperial at Low Fell. I've been coming here for many years now and have never (and I mean NEVER) had a bad meal or service from this establishment. Staff are consistent and very friendly, and they're always willing to put any leftovers in a carton to take home (not that this happens very often, we love the food!)
Well recommended!

“Simply the Best Chinese Restaurant !”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We visited The Imperial with friends on a Saturday night, it was booked for 9.15, and the table was ready for that time.

We were chatted to by the staff as we waited, made to feel welcome and gave a very friendly atmosphere .

From start to finish , the service was fantastic , as was the food.
we chose the Royal Banquet and asked if we could change one of the dishes.. Not a problem at all!
We did not sit waiting for long before the food was ready to be served, then after first two courses, we were asked if we wanted a short break, which we did!
Great touch and awareness by the staff!

The restaraunt was busy , but this did not affect the service or the quality of the food!

The price for 4 of us including drinks was less than £100, very reasonable !

I would recommend you to try this restaurant , you will not be disappointed !
