“The Nights of the Round Table”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Imperial Palace, long established in the former and little mourned New Belmont, is really very good. On a busy (pre-holiday) Thursday night, people were accommodated and served with no fuss. Many sat at large round tables as the restaurant seems geared up for largish groups.

We were in a party of four. Service was pleasant and quick without being rushed. As with poppodums in an Indian restaurant, the prawn crackers are a good test of things to come in a Chinese restaurant. They were very fresh. All the food was very good. We had quite a variety of dishes, all fresh and of good quality. Portions were notably large and we were tactfully and thoughtfully kept from over ordering.

A bill of a little over £80 for four was reasonable and we left full and happy.

“Fun Night Out”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We were a group of ten eating here on a Saturday night. We ordered lots of different dishes which we all shared very easily thanks to the lazy Susan. Each dish was cooked well and very tasty. Service was good and we all agreed we would be returning.

“my new fav. chinese”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

been looking for a new sit down chinese restaurant since the one at port solent has shut down and now i've found it .its not perfect but it is good the service was very good the food also (the chicken balls could do with more chicken in them or less batter around them) but over all good food my biggest moan is going to a foreign restaurant chinese mexican what ever is that i like to here music for that country it adds to the atmosphere i think .but saying that i will be going back.
