I've been going to the Empire since the 90's for a few reasons. Those reasons are that the food is superb, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is second to none..

It's also one of the only places I know of that does chicken sesame toast.

This is such a good place to dine and have a great time. The quality of the food is higher than some other 'fine dining' Chinese restaurants in Essex and yet the prices are reasonable and the portions plentiful. Truly accomodating owner and staff who are genuinely pleased to see you. Nothing is too much trouble. My wife is Chinese and she thinks this is the best restaurant in Essex and better than many in Soho. Have taken several business clients here over the years, (Japanese and Korean), and many have remarked at a later date what an enjoyable time they had how good the food was. When you spend extra on a sit down meal in a Chinese restaurant compared to getting a takeaway you are looking for better food and an 'atmosphere', Well that is what the Empire provides.

The quality of the food was nothing like any chinese I have tasted before. Simply imppecable quality, and quantitiy! We went out for a family meal with 7 people and asked the staff to surprise us with various starters and mains including some crispy duck and hosin sauce wraps. I highly reccomend the ribs and chicken satay as well as the sizziling beef. The staff were friendly, geniune and quick to deliver the food. Highly reccomened!

Great food and at normal prices even on New Year's Eve. Friendly service that genuinely cares about you. Great fireworks a midnight on new year. We have been a few times on new year.
