Had a great waiter last week during lunch. Truman explained many of the items of interest. Food came out hot and fresh.

Food in this restaurant is very delicious and make me feel like in China. Also amount of each meal is big but price is cheap. It is really worth to have a try!

Friendly staff really good food with lots of fresh veggies and tasty sauces. We had Cashew Chicken Veggie fried rice and General Tso's Chicken all excellent. The newly renovated restaurant is in Old China Town at 21st and Rockwell near the Plain Dealer downtown Cleveland. Manager offered a cup of tea while waiting for our order and it had great... More

They serve a bit big portion of menus compared to the prices, but the tastes are just average. Parking is easy however.

Did you know Cleveland has a China town??!! I didn't! Emperor's palace is a hidden gem just east of playhouse square! You'll need to bring a huge appetite due to the portions size. Plates average $14-$16. Great aspect is there is free parking across the street! Atmosphere is very clean and the staff is very friendly, but speak very little... More

Tucked away off the main drag in "Chinatown" (which is literally just one building I believe) this is a solid restaurant with very reasonable prices. Portions are fairly large, even the lunch-sized ones. Ask for it extra spicy!

I think I am done ordering from here. I used Grub Hub to order my usual General Tso tofu lunch. I had ordered before and delivery is always VERY slow. They use every minute of the promised hour. So I order an hour before lunch. When I received my order, it was chicken not tofu. Chicken is combo #1. Tofu... More

After last year's major chore of preparing (and cleaning up) three holiday meals, my wife and I decided to simplify this year's Christmas Day meal by going out to dinner. My in-laws were a little bit hesitant, but my wife and I had visited Emperor's Palace once before and we were confident that it would be a good option. Firstly,... More

This place has a lot of charm. And there is a lot for vegetarians and vegans to choose from. I just wish I loved more of what we got. The turnip cake was like a potato pancake but needed a little more crisp. The pumpkin cake was a little too gelatinous for me. My favorite was the vegan general tso's... More
