I stopped in here for dinner with a friend while visiting Ireland and enjoyed it immensely. I chose pretty standard Chinese restaurant fare--fried wontons and sweet and sour chicken--and it was definitely some of the best I've had. But, for me, what sets Emperor Palace apart is the excellent service. The staff were friendly and incredibly prompt. I never felt as though I were waiting for more food, nor as though I were being rushed. I would happily eat here again!

The service was really remarkable at the Emperor's Palace - from the moment we entered the restaurant, we felt welcomed and were greeted with a complimentary appetizer. The good service continued throughout the meal. The appetizers were served promptly and were very tasty. The main courses were also flavorful and the portions were very large (although I thought the prices were rather high, even taking this into consideration). Nevertheless, the service and the quality of the food are enough to merit an enthusiastic recommendation when you're in Clonmel.

A birthday celebration brought us to The Emperor's Palace. It is a traditional Chinese Restaurant that was one of the first in Clonmel. It is a very "local" place where the clients are nearly all known by Ming so the repeat business is very high. Every marathon starts with a single step and so a first visit leads to a return / regular customer.
The sea bass is an institution and must be tried. Ming (the front of house person) can be seen during the day buying his foods in local establishments where possible. Return visits are proof that everything is good at the Emperor. It is easily the best Chinese Rest. in the area.

Lovely restaurant and spotlessly clean. Food was delicious and served nice and hot by friendly and attentive staff. Will definitely be returning on a regular basis.

Good food European version of Chinese. Fast service, great atmosphere of familt restaurant that serves the local community. Eat in or take home. Get a drink in the pub next door and 'Ming will call when your table is ready.
