totally satisfied – I heard of this restaurant from Nancy Leson's Seattle Times review quite some time ago. Finally I made it over there last week. It was definitely worth the driving!!! We had about 6 dishes to share among the 6 of us for our ladies night out. The food was so good and reminded me of those dishes that we used to have in Vancouver Canada. We are happy to find a restaurant considerably nearby compare driving to Vancouver since the US dollar is so weak now. I would strongly recommend you all to try if you like good quality Chinese Hong Kong style and or Shanghai style food. They have it all.
Enjoy! – My friends and I went there to celebrate Chinese new year's last week. The food was simply amazing. we did not make a reservation, so we ended up waiting a bit, but considering the cheap price & the quality of the food, it's nothing!
we had 6-7 dishes a few of us had a drink and each person paid 30bucks including 20% tip.. not bad at all!!
Luckily, i was there with Chinede friends, so we had no trouble when it comes to what to order, but the lobster was amazing, i wish i knew how you call it though..
If I must say something downside of this place... it's pretty heavy meal, a bit oily and garlicky.. so please be there hungry, and it's always better as a group of ppl since you can share everything at the round table.
Why Only 3 Stars~!? – I'm appalled that this chinese chowdown heaven is only getting 3 stars! I've been here numerous times and have never been disappointed. In fact, I have always walked out patting my poofy belly due to their yummy food.
You'll have to pardon my inability to drop the proper names, but a couple of my go-to dishes here are: Salt and garlic deep fried pork chop , imperial short rib, Peking duck with the white bun thing, balce pepper beef, and even their stir fried green beans just for shock value. I'm sure you noticed a pattern there
Nice Shanghai food HERE~! – My parents and I went there last week and had some Shanghai dishes, and weekly special –Crab noodle (See Pics) , delicious and great Price~!
Shanghai Pork was the best in town ~! Same as I had in Shanghai~! Home-style Bamboo Shoot, and fresh crispy fish~!!!!
Guess Why It's "Today's Special"?? – GROSS!!
I came in with someone, the place was empty right before dinner time, a waiter handed us our menus and told us that there was a great special on crabs. I said I don't care for seafood much. He recommended crab another 2-3 times hoping to talk one of us into it. We made our order of something else anyway. On my way to the restroom I saw why this was the case. All the crabs were upside down and dead in their tanks. No friggin wonder. Talk about disgusting and insulting. I will never go back!!
P.S. He reeked of cigarettes.
Awful – Experienced Imperial Garden as an invited guest so was spared the indifference of wait staff, and pain of paying for overpriced mediocre to bad food.
Facilities: Dirty, glaring lighting, uninspired, uninviting.
Dim sum...terrible service! Expensive! – I visited this restaurant against my better judgement. My sister and brother in law went, and for two of them it cost $44 for dim sum. For TWO people. But I wanted dim sum and it is right by my house. Three of us went and were sat in a corner. There was ONE steam cart for the entire place which came by my table TWO times in the hour we were there. It was like we were being purposely avoided. We had to ask for more tea, and when it arrived it was not our original pot. No, it was an OLD COLD pot of tea. This means it could only have come off the dirty dish area or something like that.
We ordered 9 dishes of dim sum, only ONE of which was "special order" and should have been about $5. Well our bill came out to $55. for three people, for dim sum!! I was so angry. We were way overcharged. For 9 dishes, if all of them were "special order" it would have come to about $50. Small and large dishes are like $3 or $4, and special orders are like $5. So how the F did the bill come to $55?!!
This place sucks, the people that work there suck and are rude. I truly felt that our poor treatment had something to do with being a group of white people. There attitude towards us showed their disapproval of us being in their overpriced joint.
AVOID THIS PLACE. Go to Joy Palace in Seattle instead, its far better.
Ok selections and good services. No big deal – I wanted to find another place to have Dim Sum since I only know those in Seattle. It is a bit far to drive from where I live in Puyallup. So we went. The initial service was really quick. Food started to come out. After may be about 6 to 8 different dishes, we started to see a lot of repeats. They don't usually serve all their selections, especially those ala cart orders early. So if you like verities, be there about regular lunch or dinner time. Yes it might be crowded but that is how it goes.
The quality of food is definitely there. We ordered a lot of things made of prawns and pork. They are very close to the authentic dishes.
Food: Good. Delicious and fresh. Just not that many selections depending on the time of day.
Service: Moderate (they were very slow in filling our glass with water and replacing our tea there were many people just standing around)
Speed: Good. However, many items came out very slow and at the end of our dinning.
Price: Moderate. Ranging from $3+ and up. So it stacked up fast. Better total cost consider it is free parking. Plus I can go do some shopping next to Ranch 99 without having to find another packing space like I would in Seattle.
Ambiance: Very Chinese feel so good and suitable dining for one person to a big family.
Over all service is good.
worst dim sum in Seattle area – omg. they had one cart for dim sum for the whole restaurant and there was barely anything to eat .. looking at other tables everyone was waiting holding their chopsticks and it's a teaser. I can't believe ppls still eat there. I recommend hong kong seafood or house of hong in Chinatown ..
Horrible Customer Serice and very expensive price – I took 4 tables for my mother in law birthday party there.
We wait the food for 45 minutes and an hour coming to our table.
After we ate the food , and we order again for fish dish. We had to wait another one hour again and coming fish to our table that fish is totally difficult we order. We are very disappointed customer service that restaurant and price are very expensive too.
