I eat here for lunch atleast once, if not twice a week. The food is ALWAYS fresh and yummy, something about this place and the food, its just different, one of a kind. The staff is always friendly and fast and the owner Robert Chu is one hell of a guy!! Nice man!! I LOVE IMPERIAL CATHAY!!

Enjoyed a leisurely lunch with friends. My garlic shrimp plate, from the lunch menu, was quite good; one of my favorites. Of course, as always, I enjoyed the soup. Service was not a problem, but was not up to the standards set by this restaurant on previous visits.

In town for business & tried this as takeout because of both nearby proximity to my hotel & the number of great reviews. My dinner was decently priced and ready very quickly. The staff was friendly, and the restaurant clean & attractive. I got the sweet & sour chicken & fried rice, which was tasty, if predictable. The only negative... More

Ate here while passing through. We have dined here many times in years past when we lived in this area. After a ten year lapse it was a pleasant surprise to find that it is still a top notch establishment. Portions are very large and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed a leisurely (read long) lunch. This gave me a chance to catch up with friends that I only see every month or so. Ordered an appetizer, the name of which escapes me, and Empress Shrimp. Everything was good, just not as spicy as expected. Not a problem. As always, the soup was delicious; very rich.

Imperial Cathay sends out coupons for free crab Rangoon periodically. They are delicious. Great family-style Chinese restaurant in a good area. Never had a bad experience there.

Had to travel from East Texas to find a Chinese restaurant that is NOT a buffet. This place is excellent. Has large portions....be careful when ordering.

This is a great atmosphere for any occasion. The people are friendly and knowledgeable about the food. During lunch hours they serve an amazing soup with fried crackers. Yummm. Everything is very tasty. You must try a fried chicken wing....oh my!! So delicious. The Poupou platter is so neat and good. Just try it once at least for appetizer. You... More

We were passing through last night coming back from vacation and trusted TripAdvisor. Thank you for all the great reviews - for we were not mislead. Thank goodness for GPS or we would have never found it! My husband and I had egg fou young, spring rolls, wonton and hot and sour soup, chicken wings, sesame chicken and fried rice.... More
