We came as a large party for a work function and enjoyed one of the "banquet" meals. There was plenty of food (I was glad that some people were asking for takeaways at the end and they weren't having to throw away all the leftovers), and all the dishes I tried were very tasty. The service was swift and efficient, especially when it came to clearing the table between courses.

The only down-side to the experience was the noisiness of the environment. It was often difficult to hear people around the table due to the background level of noise in the restaurant. One imagines that avoiding busy Friday nights would help with this.

After eating at the imperial for 10+ years i can honestly say ive never had a average meal. Its always been of the best standard and ive left full as a gun. Great value for money on the banquet set menus. No diffrence in quality between afternoon sittings and evening food. Just a great place to go. Atmosphere brilliant and staff always polite. Great to have this resturant on my doorstep

Don't be deceived by the modest entrance! This is a large, well designed restaurant with a modern but very appropriate decor. We went for a family of four meal (2 adults 2 children) and we all left feeling very impressed with the service, the menu and the food. On the same evening they had two birthday party groups which did not affect us because of the size of the place. Our first visit but this will not be our last. In an area with more Take-aways than you can count, this is a very civilised place to eat - strongly recommended,
