“Disappointing across so many countries of Asia”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Empire Palace was just so disappointing across so many countries of Asia. They offer Chinese, Japanese (sushi) and even some Thai food!

Our family came in with the promise of dim sum. They offer a handful of dim sum items. All of them were a bit pricy and average in the taste department. Dim sum are plates of little bites and usually are in the $2.50 to $3.50 range. Each dim sum item was around $5 and tasted just so-so.

We also ordered the Honey Moon Duck at $17. A sickeningly sweet sauce accompanying a little tasty duck.

Also went with some sushi for the kids (California Roll) for $5. Pretty tiny pieces in the roll - but still hard to screw this up. The kids ate it.

The combination Lo Mein ($11) was tasty enough - a little on the greasy side but still tasty.

The bill came in on the hefty side but it was a chance to check out our options for dim sum. We left disappointed and a little lighter in the wallet. We won't be coming back.
