Like most Chinese restaurants this was rather lacking in atmosphere, particularly on a very quiet Thursday lunchtime where there was only one other couple. Food was excellent in quantity and quality. Waitress broke the unwritten rule of Chinese waitressing by smiling and service was good.

Great service. Plus great food. I was a little disappointed there was no dip to go with the spring rolls or the chili squid, although they tasted delicious anyway. The prawn toast was freshly prepared and the food was of a high quality. It wasn't...More

The Imperial China Restaurant offers the most exquisite Chinese and Szechaun food and an extensive menu is offered both in the restaurant and as a take away. New Forest locals have come to accept the friendly, discreet service as the 'norm', but no-one visiting Imperial China fails to comment on the high quality of the food no matter how many times they have eaten there !
