“A very good Chinese restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Five of us recently had a birthday celebration lunch at the Emperor and we all enjoyed the experience. The service was exceptional, the food really tasty and served in good portions. The table d'hote lunch is excellent value for money, including the crispy aromatic duck that is an optional extra. We have tried other Chinese restaurants in the same area and none were as good. If you like Chinese food we recommend that you try the Emperor.

“All you can eat dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Went for an all your can eat dinner with three friends. Although the food was good there was limited choice of starters. Duck was really nice and mains were freshly cooked.
My only disappointment was the cost. The service charge added meant that it turned out more expensive than expected. Would go again.

“do not judge a book by its cover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

First off ignore the outside. Once inside the restaurant it is very well set out and huge!!!!!! The choice is imense and the service is very good, like it always tends to be in Chinese restaurants. The food is very well cooked although the soup portions were small. It is all very tasty although the tempura could have had a little more variety. All in all a very good restaurant and very very resonably priced.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We use the Emperor regularly for both take out meals and dining in the restaurant. The food is always of the highest quality, with a wide variety of choices and excellent service. The steamed prawn dumplings are out of this world! There is a lovely atmosphere and you are made to feel very welcome, I highly recommend.

“hmm...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

a group of 6 of us, all 18, went to the emperor for a change from the pub. the food was absolutely fabulus and we were looked after the whole night by two people, a male and a female. the female was fantastic, really polite and attentive. however, the male was rude and seemed to not care at all. he called all the blokes there 'boy' and seemed to hurry us into making our order. he then proceeded to click at me, being a young lad this really gets on my goat, i hate being clicked at or being called boy. he was incredibly disrespectful, and rude throughout the evening, his actions ruined an awesome evening, especially as it was a goodbye meal for those going to uni. however, if you get any other member of staff we met as your waiter you will have a fantastic evening, but if you get the male i previously mentioned you will want to slap him by the end of the meal due to his rude and his inexplicably disrespectful actions
