My wife and I stop here for dinner by ourselves or call friends to be guests What an atmosphere and the service is outstanding. Most of the time we order the same entre. A mongolian beef and shrimp fried rice. Good to start with their tasty egg rolls or the chicken egg drop soup. The mustard is hot so watch... More

As long as I can remember, this place has been on the corner. I stopped for take-out and had not been to the city for 25 years. Maybe my choices were wrong. My shrimp wantons were lukewarm and not much stuffed inside. Quite tasteless. The Mongolian beef was the same except much warmer. It just didn't taste like much of... More

I ordered a Vegetable roll, Shrimp roll and the Almond Chicken. The waitress was very efficient and took our orders quickly. Both white rice and brown rice was served in large... More

During our visit to Madison we dined at Imperial Garden 2 times. Once was with family and friends and the other was for a funeral luncheon. Both times the food was delicious and well prepared. Our service was especially good on the visit with friends and family. While the service was good for the funeral luncheon, another server would have... More

Great, fresh, hot, delicious food! Service was fantastic - very attentive and friendly! The server let us know that the kitchen welcomes substitutions as all meals are made to order! The shrimp rangoons were superb! All of our meals were excellent.

Reminds me of a place we use to frequent called the Hunan. Upscale dining with a great menu, fantastic food beginning with appetizer to dessert. The atmosphere was wonderful, the portions were very generous and the flavors were wonderful. The staff was so accommodating and friendly. Never had to ask for refills for drinks or anything else. They were always... More

Very nice restaurant with pleasant staff and nice surroundings. Have daily lunch specials with egg rolls or soup to accompany them. Evening meals are wonderful. If you like Chinese food this is the place to go!

This place reminds me of a place I have fond memories of as a child-- before fast food and strip mall Chinese. The food is all prepped and made there, no pre-packaged sauces, no frozen stuff. My husband ordered a sweet and sour dish and he was wowed. It actually tasted of sour as well as sweet, meaning it wasn't... More

Elegant interior, rather unexpected for a Chinese restaurant. Vast menu selection. Food is tasty in nicely presented. Generous portions. Friendly and efficient waitstaff. A Chinese restaurant where eating in beats take out
