I went here for the first time with my spouse, our daughter, and her boyfriend. The menu has a wonderful selection -- from several styles of dumplings to veggies, rice, fish, and meat dishes. Everything we chose was flavorful and interesting. Not only tasty, but also colorful and visually appealing. I would especially recommend the bok choy, pork belly buns, and duck fried rice -- although we also shared a number of other dishes and they were all excellent. Topped off by outstanding service and a very comfortable, laid-back vibe. My daughter and her boyfriend have been there several times and say it has been this good each time.

We happened by and there were so many diners at 5 pm that we thought we should give it a try. The food was fresh and tasty and the drinks were delish.

We had a delicious lunch at Empire with our 3 children. The staff was amazingly aware of the menu ingredients and made us feel so safe and comfortable as we described our many allergies. The waiter checked with kitchen and made many recommendations of menu items and easy substitutions. The servers made sure to also let us know that each dish was allergen free as it was delivered! We were so appreciative of the care they took.
The food itself was among the best dim sum we've had. So flavorful and fresh. We loved our meal!

I like the dim sum. Real Chinese food. Also strongly recommend peking duck stun, very crispy. Yummy.
