Recently moved to the Swansea area and had been looking for a decent Chinese without any luck. A friend mentioned she had her takeaways from the Emporer and she rated it very highly so we thought we would try it out.

Friendly atmosphere, suitable for a wide selection of food choices, vegetarian and vegan (they serve vegetarian cuisines as well as tofu cuisines for vegans). An allergy list on the front of the menu which is always helpful for some. Therefor the Restaurant caters for most types of diets.

This spacious and authentic Chinese restaurant has been around for a few years and is just down from the train station, within easy reach of the town centre. I have taken lunch here... More

This restaurant isn't best located, the area looks run down, but don't let that put you off. The staff are very friendly and the food is probably the best Chinese restaurant in Swansea. Highly recommend a visit.

The restaurant is next to two derelict buildings which don't help when you're looking for a nice place to eat in Swansea. However, once inside it is reasonably well decorated with plenty of seating space. The food is excellent and the have a wide variety of Chinese food on offer. I'd recommend the crispy duck.
