“Super evening, Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

Booked the Imperial for me and my friend for 6 pm Saturday. We had a nice warm welcome and were shown straight to our table where we were presented with a dish of nice warm fluffy prawn crackers and a chilli dip. We ordered crispy aromatic duck which was super. We had 3 main courses to share as we were hungry they also were excellent. The staff are friendly and can't do enough for your. I recommend this restaurant most highly and will be back soon.

“Wish we had one near us”

We were visiting friends in Saltaire and they took us to The Imperial...we hope to go there again and only wish there was such a restaurant near where we live. Good food, great service and very friendly staff.

“Cannot recommend enough!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

This Chinese restaurant is the epitome of tasty, unique and wholesome oriental food.
Many people think of greasy, processed food when Chinese is mentioned but the quality of The Imperial is far from this.
The flavours are just wonderful and I've honestly never tasted a Chinese like it. Fantastic value for money too.
If you fancy being a bit naughty and having a seriously good takeaway or night out at a Chinese restaurant then this is 100% the place to go.
You will not be disappointed!
