As usual the food is bountiful but not necessarily great quality. Imagine having a 6 course Mothers Day banquet and the only vegetables in the dishes were ONIONS and carrots, nothing else. Despite wanting the food to brought out 2 courses at a time all 4 courses arrived at once and of course by the time we got to eat... More

New Empress is open again and so happy to have them back. Really good dinner with special fried rice, beef in plumb sauce and honey chicken. All were terrific. A small note that I was told "Seafood has gone up a lot since they have come back" there is an additional charge for seafood dishes now. Was a small additional... More

Something was different on this occasion. Rainbow steak, Honey Chichen and fried rice. Fried rice is great and hard to mess up so all good on this part. Rainbow steak was average and a bit of a disappointment unfortunately. Quite dry and not up to scratch. Honey Chicken was also quite dry and NOT a lot of chicken in the... More

Apart from not understanding perfectly what the person on the phone is saying due to their Asian accent and having to repeat myself a few times, the process is otherwise flawless. The food is always ready in the specified time frame, the staff are super friendly and welcoming whenever you go... More

This is our favourite restaurant in our local area. We had heard of it before we moved into the area as well. Great Chinese cuisine and good quality. Good venue for large gatherings as well as take away. We take away more than dine in as it is so close to home. Love the Peking Duck, Whole Barramundi, Rainbow Steak... More

What ever you think about the food. A restaurant serving "Shark Fin Soup" should have the licenses revoked.

Went here with family on a Friday night, the setting and atmosphere are lovely. Food was delicious, especially the Mongolian Lamb but service was rather confused as usual.

Quite a large restaurant which can get busy at times. Especially busy on Mothers Day. Food is quite ok but may need a bit of chili sauce at times.
