We had a good welcome even though we had little time left before the lunchtime ended. Excellent quality of food. Very clean. Set menu was limited but happy with what we had. Staff very pleasant and friendly. Pleasant decor. Would certainly visit again.

We’ve used imperial China for many many years, through all the owners. I have to say our last visit wasn’t as exceptional as before but still very good. Food was nice, atmosphere was good and service was next to none. I visited again in January...More
