Have been using the Emperor restaurant for twenty odd years now, and their standards never drop.Often have a takeaway and find a surprise which the staff add without charge.such as prawn crackers or extra sauce.Especially like their duckling or Chop Suey. They have been in Clonmel for many a year, so they must be doing something right.

As far as Chinese food goes in Clonmel, this is by far the best. Price wise you are looking at anything from 17e to 26e. The fillet steak is a must. Perfectly cooked every time. Their crispy duck is also a good meal. It is always good to book in advance so as not to be disappointed. Ming will always... More
