This buffet is really good and inexpensive. We were seated immediately and served right away. Large buffet with Asian dishes, sushi and mongolian stir fry. I did not eat much sushi as I wanted to leave lots of room for all the great asian dishes....More

Generally buffets can be dry and tasteless dishes, often past their best, HOWEVER not here!! Food was basic, though Sushi was very varied and all good. Staff were pleasant. For the price we paid, I was pleasantly surprised.

Every time we are in the Palm Springs area we eat at Emperer Buffet. The variety is excellent. I can't get enough of their sushi. Sometimes they run low on the crab leg crackers, so we bought our own plastic ones to take with us,...More

I did have hesitation visiting this venue only because I am generally a bit sceptical about buffet style dining from previous experiences but I need not have worried. The buffet was all fresh and how a very extensive range of dishes and the employees were...More

We had dinner once at this restaurant because it was the closest to the Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage where we staid. Food selection was average but in line with what you can usually find in these restaurants. For $12.99 ++ you get what you pay...More
