“dive bar for regulars only”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

used to be the best Chinese around but unfortunately even the slightest competition killed the place. It is now a dive bar with a dark atmosphere and too many shady regulars for a family to enjoy, we that is if you go in the bar at all.

“Looked busy so . . .”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I pulled over. Then realized that the crowd was in the bar. Just me in dining room. Ordered a lunch combo plate - Kung Pao Pork was bland and a few too chewy morseld, chicken wings okay, hot abd sour soup okay flavor, too much thickener

“Indifferent”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Even in the South Shore, where there aren't that many options for Chinese good, we won't go back to Imperial Garden. The food was bland, even what was supposedly "spicy". The place seems more focused on its Keno parlor. Hard to get the attention of the wait-staff, though the hostess at the entrance was helpful.

“Typical for the area...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2011

As I've posted before, finding decent Chinese food on the South Shore of MA is a challenge - so when I classify this place as average, keep in mind how low the average is!
Dishes classified on the menu as "spicy" or "hot" are completely bland. The fried rice is actually better than most. Our shrimp entree had maybe four small shrimp in it.
Truly a mixed bag, so you may want to try a few different items before you make up your mind. Like I said, this place is above average but...
