The service was terrible. Very rude and slow. The food was the worst that I have had. Save your money and drive on by.

What i missed. The restaurant was very busy and the service was very good. But the combo plate I ordered was not enjoyable. Both entrees used the same breaded, overcooked, tough, deep fried chicken covered in non inspiring sauces. I noticed others in the restaraunt...More

We always enjoy dining at The Emerald. The food arrives quickly, piping hot, and can be customized to your tastes. Portions are generous. The menu is primarily Asian food, but other items are also available. Diners usually include both Asian and non-Asian customers. We especially...More
