By far, the best chinese restaurant in Bedford. There's not as many items on the buffet as the other Chinese buffet, but the restaurant is MUCH cleaner and the food is prepared much better. The staff is very friendly.

We should have ordered off the menu but the buffet had everything anyway. $10.95 without soup or drink was too much for lunch. Everything was coated in oil. All three of us got sick. I can still taste oil in my mouth, 3 days later.

I almost never eat at a buffet restaurant but I make an exception for Empress Court. The employees in our office say this is the best in Bedford and they are correct. Always a good selection, friendly staff, clean and good food. They offer many varieties and also offer quite a few fruits and vegetables. Desserts are also very flavorful... More

Had lunch at Empress court just today and love the salads so much and the main courses and the soups. Well just love it all. When I go to an Ethnic Restaurant I like it to look that way. It is very tastefully decorated it is pleasant to just look around as I eat the delicious food
