The Imperial Gardens Chinese Restaurant is an authentic Chinese Restaurant, with a very well decorated interior, great service and a very varied and tasty menu.
The Imperial Gardens is a restaurant I regularly visit as it offers an unrivaled selection of Chinese food prepared in what is claimed is “the biggest Chinese food kitchen in Waterford”, … and I’d believe it.
The Early bird special offers excellent value, which is 4 courses for only €18.50. Some of the specialties include traditional Chinese dumplings or Crispy Wan Tan for starters and dishes such as Roast Duck with Ginger and Spring Onion or the Special Seafood Selection with Noodles. These dishes are perfectly cooked and taste great. Also on Sundays there is an all you can eat buffet which is excellent value for money.
Portions are very decent but not so large that if you eat everything you are not overly full. The staff are very friendly and give you plenty of time between courses to relax while still maintaining a good flow to the service. It’s also good to see that they stock some more unusual drinks including an Aloe Vera drink which is very refreshing and if you haven’t tried it, give it a go.
The traditional Chinese decor is very nice and they often play Chinese Pop Music which is always a plus in my book (I believe that if you visit a Chinese or Indian Restaurant, Traditional music really adds to the atmosphere)
The restaurant is not centrally located but parking is available nearby and is validated for you before you leave. (don’t forget to ask!)
