    We had an absolutely wonderful dinner at Imperial Chinese restaurant. We had not dined there recently as we lived in south suburbs of Denver, but recently moved downtown and decided to try it out. So glad we did! The food was delicious. We had Hot/ Sour soup, Pork Ribs and Chicken Dumplings appetizers, Mu-Shoo Pork and steamed Sea Bass with ginger soy sauce. Everything was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. Best Chinese food in Denver for sure. Also, our server was excellent. She was very attentive and helpful. Meal was timed perfectly too, so each course came to the table with a little break in between courses but did not feel like too slow or rushed. We highly recommend giving this restaurant a try!

    Family of 7, 4 adults, 11 year old, twin 7 year old. Superb service was very attentive to the kids. We had soup, ribs and dumplings for starters. Main dishes of salmon, shrimp, chicken. The food is awesome. Not huge portions like some Chinese restaurants but very fresh food.

    We went here because they were supposed to have the best Peking Duck in Denver. Hope that's not true. Cannot imagine a poorer example of this wonderful dish! It was so dry we had to use more Hoisin Sauce to choke it down. No crispy skin that is essential to making a good taste either. Nice ambiance, great waitstaff. Attentive and friendly. Other dishes may be great, just avoid the duck.

    We used to go here many years ago then moved. Decided to have a special birthday dinner but were extremely disappointed in both the diminished serve and lower quality of the food. I guess we’ll wait another couple of decades to try again.

    Food was great; everything we had was delicious. Four stars because service was a little too relaxed for my taste.

    They literally didn’t have menus. They were out of a lot of the items on the menu including certain alcohol too . I know it has been sold but the new owners hade to get it together, I’ve been eating here for 30 years and it was never like this with Thomas, Vincent, of Lynn.

    We invited our son to meet us for an early Easter dinner. Being a vegetarian, he consumed an excellent eggplant main course dish. I had a Bird’s Nest seafood main course dish and my husband a broccoli Beef dish. All were excellent as was the tea. Perfection!!
