For the BEST Chinese food in Manhattan eat here. All made to order and fantastic. For a real adventure look over the alternative menu on the counter. A very popular choice with the asian college community as well.

Our 'go to' for Chinese take out. If you don't see your favorite on the menu just ask, their staff is very helpful. The bacon fried rice is our daughter's favorite. We like the shrimp and broccoli with the sauce on the side. Their steamed rice is the best we've had anywhere! The only downside is that seating inside is... More

We've eaten here several times. It's quick and easy because of the drive thru. The first time I went and ordered fried rice the vegetables were still raw. Haven't had that problem ever again. We like the flavor.

Drive thru makes it easy. Food is average portion size. Some dishes are not real spicey. Egg rolls are the best.

My husband loves this place! They have big portions...enough to share! Reasonably priced. The service is always fast and friendly.

Love Imperial Garden! By far my favorite Chinese restaurant in Manhattan. Food is fast, made on the spot and fresh (you can tell they use good quality chicken). They don't give you an outrageous amount of food but the prices also match that. Love, love, LOVE! I just wish they would deliver!

Never thought an obscure restaurant on the end of a building (with a drive-through) would have the most delicious Chinese food in this area. Food turnover is quick because of the constant orders. Nothing is left sitting out and the cooks cook to order. They have the regular posted menu, then you have a "chef's menu" that have a few... More

From the exterior the Imperial Garden Express looks just like all those other fast-food Chinese food places stuck in strip malls all over the country. A quick glance inside can confirm that observation. It is a plain, utilitarian place to eat food. A second glance however, suggests that this restaurant may have more to offer than simply deep-frying frozen chicken... More

I really like this place. Not fancy or expensive, just good simple Chinese food that isn't served on a buffet.
