“Empress Gardens”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Good food, good service, value for money, great for vegetarians, especially the 'duck'. We had eaten there and the atmosphere is good. Sometimes a bit slow with a takeaway, but worth the wait.

“Above average chinese for an inconspicuous restaurant.”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

The Empress Garden has consistently been the top end of the restaurants available in Sandhurst for 20 years. The unassuming location in the middle of a row of shops should not put you off from an above average eating experience with good food and great service.

“Not appetising food, left disappointed.”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

We ordered by telephone. The waitress taking the order was very patient and helpful. The order was ready at the time they requested I collect, so all good so far.
Got the food home. (starters) The ribs were dry, the duck was cooked to within an inch of its life, and not shredded (not in a foil container as you'd expect but plain household foil - novel!!). Other items just ... Not memorable.
(Mains) Beef in black pepper sauce, good, not wonderful, just good. Smoked chicken, chicken was smothered in some sauce, tasted like it came from a jar!! (Probably uncle bens. I'm not a fan!)

So my search for a decent Chinese around Crowthorne continues!

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Had the buffet menu, apx £16pp. You can get as many different dishes as you want and they proportion the size to the amount of people on the table.

Really fresh food, very well cooked and well presented. The staff were lovely, very cheerful and happy to help you.

Will definitely be going back, it was a great treat!
