    Disappointing.

    Got delivery of a variety of Chinese appetizers and entries. Chicken was tough. The chicken and shrimp toast and moo shoo pork was tasteless and everything smelled. Please stop ordering from this place so it can be replaced by a decent restaurant.

    Where's the sauce?

    Ordered soups, dumplings, sesame chicken and the 'make your own dish' (chicken+4 veggies+sauce). The soup & dumplings were decent. The sesame chicken is good, but a bit on the sweet side. For the build your own dish, however, they forgot to add the white sauce. Who gets sauteed chicken without sauce? The order shows the sauce placed in the order, and it's not as if they don't have your contact info to confirm the strange order! Otherwise, the dish was quite good - they do a good job with the eggplants. On the other hand, they used canned mushrooms (!!). That is seriously not cool.

    Not recommended

    When we first moved to this neighborhood, my husband brought me to this place; full of nostalgia for how great it was. The food is disappointing, service is surly. We tried it twice more thinking maybe it was just a one-off, but no.

    Good food

    Had recent meal - first rate - a credit to the "old time" Empire chain.

    poor quality

    Food is not good in this place specially if you compare it to the other Empire Szechuan restaurants scattered around the city. The first time I ordered an orange beef it was burnt, the second time it was orangee at all. Stay away from this place!

    despite the poor service, i still come back.

    I agree, whenever I go here, the waiters are brusque and not too attentive, but... I love their japanese food...I consistently order the same thing: lobster salad and tako su which are both always quite good and fresh...their sushi is above average and decently priced. I'm hesitant to order their "chinese" food because it's so steeply priced, but it always tastes good. Above all, I go for the japanese. I really don't like their service, so I've started ordering for delivery...I live almost 30 blocks away, yet they are always happy to deliver even though I could technically order from the other Empire..I'm surprised with the rating of their food, but not at all surprised by the complaints on service.

    Decent food, fast delivery

    I've never eaten at their restaurant so I can't vouch for their service. But whenever I order them online, it's usually a fast delivery and the food is usually hot and good and a good deal too. So I have no complaints and people should probably just order online b/c it sounds like they specialize in that grab and go environment with minimal interaction with the customer. So if you want a good experience with them, i'd suggest you order online and expect a quick delivery as a result of it.
