We call this our Dimsum place as we've been coming here for a few years now. We haven't been in probably close to a year and it's still great food and I believe that the service has gotten better. We always go early as it gets really busy. Yesterday we got there later and had to wait about 10 minutes.... More

There have been a few posters complaining about the service here, and while it isn't great by "normal" restaurant standards, it's pretty much standard for a dim sum spot. I've only ever been to Empire Garden for dim sum, but it has always been good. All the classic dishes, all executed well. Satisfying on every visit.

7 of us came for dim sum lunch to celebrate a birthday. A few of us had been 'regulars' over the years for birthday lunch celebrations here. I didn't even mind driving across town for 45 mins for good decent dim sum at Empire. Well that all changed today. The place was busy and luckily we had reservations. There are... More

Had lunch here. The staff were great--courteous, fast, friendly. The food….pricey compared with other Chinese places we frequent, parts of the combination lunch barely warm, serving plate chipped. The menu for lunch was mainly dim sum, and obviously was enjoyed by the many Asian diners present. We'd heard great things about it from friends, but we won't be going back.

Among the many Chinese restaurants in greater Vancouver area, this is one to avoid. The food tasted just so so and they are not real Chinese food ingredients. Therefore the price is very high for such low quality. We were surprised that we got charged $4.00 for tea as if we ordered dimsum, but we ordered full course lunch for... More

Dimsum is alright at best. Anyone saying this is excellent dimsum must like generic Chinese, and most of the dinner menu is the same. I guess it's one of the better Chinese places in Langley but that doesn't say much. I have to agree that the service varies from mediocre to poor.

Food we ordered was supposed to take 45 minutes. It was almost 2 hours. I kept trying to call and could not get through? Food was cold and below average. This has happened to us over and over. That will be the LAST time we order from Empire Garden! Years ago this used to be a good restaurant. Don't know... More

Took a long time to have delivered. When we got the food it was tasteless not what one would expect for the price. Would not recommend as it was terrible.

I would never order from here again. I ordered 5 dishes and out of the 5, 4 of them all tasted the same, like the noodles and rice were cooked with dish water.
