We last visited a month ago. While this was once a good buffet, it has gone downhill. The lamb and beef dishes are tough, food on the steam tables not replenished often enough and consequently not particularly good anymore. The sashimi offerings remain good, as...More

I belong to an organization and we have had a private Christmas party at Imperial. There is a room that they gave us exclusively. Enjoyed the evening a lot.
