The Imperial Gardens Chinese Restaurant is located on the Cork Road about 5 minutes walk from the College Street WIT Campus at Manor Village.
I had been to the Imperial Gardens many times and it is one of my favourite Chinese restaurants bot in Waterford and Ireland. I decided to put a small review of the restaurant on the site, as it’s a very nice restaurant. The Imperial Gardens offers an unrivalled selection of Chinese food prepared in what is claimed is “the biggest Chinese food kitchen in Waterford”. Also the Chinese food served here is top notch and in my view quite authentic.
My most recent visit I had the Early bird special which was four courses for only €18.50 which was very good value. I had the Crispy Wan Tan for the starter and the Roast Duck with Ginger and Spring Onion, perfectly cooked and tasted great. Portions are very decent but perfect enough that if you do finish everything you are not overly full. The staff are very friendly and give you plenty of time between courses to relax. Its also good to see that they stock some more unusual drinks including Aloe Vera drink which is very refreshing and if you haven’t tried it, give it a go.
The real traditional Chinese decor is very nice and they were playing Chinese Pop Music which is always a plus … I hate going to a Chinese or Indian and hearing James Blunt or Westlife. The traditional music really adds to the atmosphere.
