“Good one night, bad another!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

We ate here twice on our trip. the first night was very good and the second night was really second rate. The odd thing is that we ordered the same dish and at the same time of night! I would not go back to this restaurant again. The mark of a good restaurant is consistency and this seems to be a big problem for Emperor Garden in Laredo. There are lots of places to eat so I would recommend you find another place for Chinese.

I only rate it average because it was good one night and poor another - thus, average at best.

“Loved The Buffet!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013 via mobile

Have dined here on two different occasions and it's awesome. It's a notch above 90% of any other Chinese buffet you'll eat anywhere. The service is first class and very professional. The atmosphere is awesome. The variety is very good but the quality is first class. The owner is hands on and very nice and personable. I give em 4 out of 5 forks. Check em out!

“Check you salt and napkins.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012 via mobile

Food and service was okay; however, when I advised the lady server that there were bugs in the salt, she picked up the salt from a near by table and gave it to me. Which was alright except she then replaced the salt on that table with the "bug" salt. She also reset a table using napkins that had been left on the used table. Also, the area leading to the sushi bar had a pungent smell. Makes me think twice about going back.
