Inside was clean and organized. Display trays full of extra menu and tooth pick dispense was also full. Greeted right away, very pleasant. Sat in the bar, ordered... More

The last couple of times we went here the Almond Fried Chicken had a rancid taste from the oil they need to change. I contacted the manager and they said they change it every other night. She told me to let them know the next time we come in and they would change the oil before fixing our dinner. It's... More

Do yourself a favor however and forget the location in Olympia on Cooper Pt Rd SW!! Food was tasteless...we were SO disappointed. I salted mine to have some flavor. The one in Lacey does it all so wonderfully...we are surprized they are associated restaurants...so drive the extra miles and have a wonderful meal in Lacey...but don't bother otherwise!!

Family recommended as a quality Chinese sit down restaurant. Décor was nice. The pork fried rice was dry and strangely seasoned. The orange chicken had little chicken in it. The BBQ pork was so-so. The teriyaki chicken was mostly dark meat and dry. I guess if you smother everything with sauce, you might not know the difference. Service was very... More

I love Chinese food. This food is so disgusting, I can't eat here. It's one of only two places that delivers to my home, yet I can't bring myself to order it because last time I tried to force it down, it made me nauseous. I've tried several times and tried different meals, thinking it could not all be that... More

I didn't really want to give it a 2, but a 3 says "average", and it was less than average, but not really poor. The food was just "meh" as the title says. Nothing spectacular, been here a few times only because my boyfriend likes this place and its close. Its a Chinese restaurant, but I have yet to see... More

Wife and I live fairly close by, so this place is convenient. Sometimes we just call our order in and pick it up 15 minutes later. They are always on time. I love their Mongolian Beef and my wife likes the Pork Lo Mein. There is a friendly lounge in the facility which has plenty of TV's if you are... More

If you are like us, you are feeling deprived of Chinese food because there is none in Olympia. Don't let your feelings of deprivation allow you to pay too much for awful food from Emperor's Palace. We ordered almost $50 worth of delivery, and, well, the cardboard containers probably tasted better than the food. That is not dramatic: that is... More

Me and my wife visited this restaurant hoping it would be as good as other Chinese restaurants previously visited. Some friends said it was good. 😣 Boy, they have poor taste. The almond chicken didn't taste any where near almond chicken in other places. The rice was marginal. Service was good but food was terrible.
