Wide selection of authentic Chinese food. Food is delicious but the restaurant, though big, is always busy. Avoid rush hours. With a reservation, we still waited for 40 minutes to get a table.

Empire Seafood Restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of this plaza/block along No 3 road. Service is OK...average at best. The staff seem like they don't want to be there or something. They do what they need to but they all seem emotionless. No...More

Established in 2004, Empire Seafood Restaurant was originally located at 200-7997 Westminster highway in Richmond. The success of the original restaurant brought another 7000 sq ft Empire Chinese Cuisine in 2006. In 2012, the Empire Seafood Restaurant was relocated to a new, lavishly decorated location where 300+ guests can enjoy the extravagant dishes that Empire is known for. This new location is not only grand, but centrally located in bustling central Richmond , nearby Richmond Centre Skytrain station.
