We don't often go out for a Chinese meal as we are always disappointed. However this is an exception. Excellent friendly helpful service, and food was amazing. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Great quality. We will definitely return.

The Imperial China Restaurant offers the most exquisite Chinese and Szechaun food and an extensive menu is offered both in the restaurant and as a take away. New Forest locals have come to accept the friendly, discreet service as the 'norm', but no-one visiting Imperial China fails to comment on the high quality of the food no matter how many times they have eaten there !
