Big restaurant with luxurious setting suitable for family or business lunch or dinner. We ordered crab soup, fried seafood noodle, mushroom garlic tofu and crispy chinese pancake.

Good dim sum, Chinese dishes are good too.....but they don't serve pork as it a halal restaurant. Overall food is good, price is on the higher end of the spectrum. Service is generally okay....

I was trying to locate a situation venue to host a business lunch. Emperor's Court has a nice ambience to host a proper business meal. However, the service standard need to improve as we waited a long time for the menu and servicing.
