We like getting take-out here. The spare ribs, beef sticks, egg rolls, crab ragoons, pork fried rice, etc. is all very good. They cook each order as requested. Will definitely come here again!

My family has been going to China Empress for years and we love it. The food is always wonderful. The staff on the phone sometimes is not so friendly, but the owner and the food makes up for them.

Average Price, better take out than the other Chinese restaurant in Winthrop. It can be COLD when eating there in the winter but the owner has tried to fix the problem with portable electric heaters. GREAT FRESH FRIED Noodles served while you wait.
