Just experienced the worst excuse for a Chinese restaurant ever. For this restaurant to even try to pass itself off as Chineses is criminal.
The exterior is quite impressive with marble (fake) and glass which gives the impression of quality. Alas no. This place has concentrated on being pleasing on the eye and not the palette.
The place was full however we were shown almost immediately to a table on the outside balcony overlooking the busy through fair.
As we ordered our meal the waiter enthusiastically told us we would soon find out why they were so busy.
The starters of spring rolls and Szechuan spare ribs came very promptly and were fine. After eating spare ribs with a sticky sauce you would normally expect to given a dish of water to clean your fingers. Not here. Small point but important if you are trying to pass yourself off as a quality restaurant.
Next the main courses arrived. Chop Suey in every Chinese restaurant I have every eaten in consists of noodles being one of the main constituent parts of Chop Suey. Not in the Imperial. You need to order noodles to go with your Chop Suey. Now if the waiter had even advised us of this fact we would have realized that they were just ripping us off and we would have ordered the noodles.
My main course of crispy beef arrived. This dish came dry and shrivelled as the desert and without the word of a lie I would not have feed this to a dog! The meat ? was grey and looked like the chew sticks you would feed to a cat or dog. I have attached a photography separately of this abomination as I do not think people could realistically imagine how bad this could be.
Be warned. All that glitters is not gold. A lesson that I have learned to my cost tonight.
