Been to this place many times, always supurb in every way. Just one small complaint is that that they tend not to run on time when busy, Table or takeaway often 15 mins late when busy but a small price to pay.

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 !
