“Spectacular Food Topped Off With Great Service”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Stranded in Clonmel and starving? Why not pop into Emperor Palace .
I recently visited place with family and received spectacular food with heartwarming service all for a price worth paying. In my opinion what sets Emperor Palace apart from any other Chinese is the excellent service and the cleanliness ,The staff make it their business to help you in anyway.You never seem to be waiting longer than 5-10 minutes to be served. In relation to their food, you never feel as if you should order more or leave hungry.The portions are huge and always served piping hot right in front of you. Yet the prices may be high on some items you are paying for the quality and the Emperor never seems to disappoint. Would recommend Emperors Palace to anyone looking for tasty food!

“Excellent Service”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

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!

“Outstanding service, good food”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

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.

“Chinese with a twist”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

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.
