Where's the Beef?

Have you ever been to a Chinese place and ordered beef or shrimp only to get your order and there is BARELY any shrimp or beef? That is this place. Not only that but they don't speak english very well. One time i asked them to not cook the broccoli as part of my order. after 5 minutes, speaking with 2 individuals and the manager no one could understand ""take a handful of broccoli, skip the stove and place it in my order"" WHaht???? I tried to say it as many ways as i could, as slowly as i could..... Have you ever been to place that you know you have to check your order before you pay? That's this place. There is a subway, arbys, wendys, zoe's, and trader joes all in the same area. Pick one of those instead and avoid this place.

The Emperor's empire is falling.

Last weekend my brother and I just wanted some good chinese food so we ventured, away from our normal venue, to try another place that someone had recommended. In my opinion, the Emperor must be feeling the effects of the current economy because our food was almost black making me believe it had been weeks since the oil was last changed as the chicken tasted smoky and burned. Next our egg rolls were the same dark color with one patch of light where they were floating in the oil and tasted like they were rolled and fried at least three days earlier. The only saving grace was the egg drop soup which was a good broth and was made fresh as the eggs were not overcooked.

When I picked up my food someone in the dining room also mentioned that there food tasted old and wanted a fresh meal prepared and a new tea.

My brother is a chef and I used to be in the restaurant business so we are sometimes too critical. However, we could not eat this food and were far too dissappointed to attempt to have the restaurant try to remediate the situation. I would not recommend this restaurant. It is the very worst food, chinese take-out or other, that I have had experienced.

The one star is only so that it would accept my rating. I will never return.

Health Score Falling

My coworker and I recently discovered this restaurant. The restaurant had a great health score, and was voted Best in Charlotte. Our first time in the food was great, the atmosphere was charming and the prices were better. Less than two weeks later we decided to go back for a second try, but to our disappointment there was a very low health inspection score. We wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt so we proceeded to ask for an explanation of the score. The host/server/manager would not speak to us. He responded very rudely with, "I don't know why it's so low," as he turned and went off to the kitchen. We were left standing there, very disappointed, and still hungry.

In and Out

I really can't comment on the food at The Emperor Chinese Restaurant. The first thing I look for going into any restaurant is the Health Dept. certificate. Their rating was 84. I turned and left...simple as that.

Fast and Tasty

We've eaten here often for lunch and dinner. There are tables and booths, the space is clean, cozy, and service is quick. The food is great with options for spicy or simply tasty, and all at very reasonable prices. There are many lunch specials which include entree, rice, egg roll for around $5.00 and dinner combos that are filling as evidenced by the many men who eat there. Also, all our takeout orders have been accurate and included utensils, sauces, napkin, and noodles if we ordered soup. Well worth your time!

Great Chinese food...

Best Chinese in Charlotte, NC. Absolutely. They don't use a gallon of oil for your dish, everything is cooked masterfully and quickly, and they are quick as anything for to-go and delivery. Excellent menus for lunch and dinner. And the best thing? They do NOT use monosodium glutamate (MSG), which can give you what is known as Chinese Restaurant Syndrome (no joke). Most other places do; MSG enhances flavor, but is a very mild -toxin- to some people. Emperor has no part in that. Know what? It makes their food taste better. It's natural, uncomplicated, and very tasty. Highly recommend :)
