“Tasty, but a certain sameness”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Hadn't been to this Kirkland restaurant for a while, so we went and had the taster's menu which allowed us to sample a wide variety of dishes. Starter soups and imperial rolls were good, as were the ribs and hunan dumplings. However, the portion of the latter was disappointing (only 2 per person), so we ordered more, but they never came. As for the mains, we had chicken, duck, beef, pork, vegetable, noodle and seafood Szechuan dishes and all were good, if not necessarily spectacular. One observation was that many of the dishes tasted very similar, regardless of the ingredients, so that you sometimes weren't sure exactly what you were eating. Spiciness often was the main distinction between the sauces. Nevertheless it was all good, and good value for the price. Service was friendly and attentive except for the dumpling oversight.

“Beef de l'Orange- a True Surprise”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Tired of Fast Food, what a surprise when I ordered Beef de l'Orange with a flavor almost beyond description. So I inquired to find out the origin of the unique flavor was, "Blood Oranges". I had seen them in Portugal last year, but do not recall seeing them in Montreal. The other dishes were Shrimp with a lobster sauce, General Tao Chicken, Squid, Won Ton Soup and an Imperial Roll. All dishes were tasty hot and well presented, but the Beef de l'Orange "stole the show"! Note the restaurant has changed ownership in December 2012 and the Mastercard receipt had "Empire Garden".

“Good food”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Resturant was charming, friendly staff. Food was good, reasonable price. The only negative for me was the constant interruptions by waiters removing dishes, as soon as you put your fork or glass down, they wanted to remove it, some people were not bothered by this though, overall everything was great.

“Imperial Palace”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Good food at a reasonable price. This szechuan restaurant serves up pretty good food, most of which is authentic. We enjoy getting the sesame chicken, imperial rolls, orange beef, and a noodle of some kind. THe prices are pretty reasonable for the amount of food you get. Usually not too busy during the week; they do accept reservations though. The staff is average for the most part, they don't do anything special for you but don't give you a negative experience. Overall a decent place to satisfy your szechuan craving.
