Am addicted to the sesame tofu. I love the Buddha's delight, the sesame sauce is divine. Rolls are not reliable, and stay away from sushi. Higher than room temp and fragrant. I think by their behavior, the delivery persons must be treated terribly. Tip accordingly.

We've ordered from this place a lot in the past year. The size of their sushi is ridiculous. You can barely fit the pieces of sushi in your mouth unless you've got a mouth the size of a bear because they use way too much rice. Most of the sushi is just ok. Nothing great at all. Actually, the salmon and tuna don't taste very fresh and every single time they over do the spice. It's too much hot sauce. I like hot sauce, but jeez, calm down with it. So, we stopped ordering from here. Hoping you'll get something better the next time you order just doesn't happen. Oh, one more thing, the lady that takes our order is mad. She needs to take a chill pill.

On multiple occasions I have been unknowingly served meat by this place. Last time I ordered Vegetarian hot and sour soup and sesame tofu. The soup had about a dozen small pieces of pork (my non-veg wife confirmed this) mixed in with the other solids. The sesame tofu had 2 pieces of what clearly was NOT tofu (chicken I guess?). Today I ordered vegetarian orange beef. This is supposed to be fake meat made from textured veg protein. Instead I was served real beef, confirmed by the hostess! They replaced the dish, with apologies. I ate the corrected dish, upset, but assuming it was just a mistake that happens. Just now I was eating the leftovers of that dish. It is indeed mostly veg...but there is also clearly one loose shrimp tail and one whole shrimp mixed in. What the $$@#! I will never eat here again.

I would always buy from Empire when i did not want to cook but the last 2 times i ordered the person taking the order was rude and did not even let me finish telling her what i wanted. At that moment I wanted to cancel my order but she already had my Credit Card information so left it alone but after 1 year of ordering there i will never buy from them again.

They hav good food.. Bean curd home styke is my favorite along with Beef Peking style. The american dream roll is also worth trying. Very nice people and service is fast.

Ordered food that totaled $7.00,gave the delivery person a two dollar tip. The delivery person had the gall to get angry. He looked at the extra two dollars and said" this is all?" I will not be ordering from these guys again.

Live in the neighborhood and so order from there about once a week. Over the phone, when placing the order they are quite rude. This happens to me all the time. In the restaurant itself, I don't think they are that bad.
