The Emperor. The name conjures up regal images and connections. Concerto. Of a kingdom. Penguin!!
Well, the Emperor restaurant in Stonecot Hill has a regal reputation and whatever day of the week you plan to dine here, I would strongly advise booking as this restaurant is very popular.
They have quite a unique menu - you pay one price and you can then order any dishes from their extensive menu as often as you want. Yes, you really can.
There is a wide choice - there are all the usual Anglo-Canto favourites as well as more unusual dishes such as prawns on sugar cane.
I've been here many times with friends and it's so great that everyone can order what they like and if they want more, just order more. The starters are particularly strong. Then most people would follow with crispy aromatic duck with pancakes or Mongolian lamb in lettuce leaves as a middle course.
Main courses can be served with rice or noodles. One dish that you should have is the sizzling beef - super tender.
Included in the price for dessert are lychees and toffee banana or apple with vanilla ice cream. You can order special ice cream creations for extra charge.
The staff are always very friendly and will be happy to help you select dishes.
I also like the calming videos of scenes from diving on their big flat screen TVs
Not as cute an emperor penguins but an excellent Chinese restaurant
I've been coming to this restaurant for years and it never fails to impress. We've had lots of family celebrations here and everyone goes home happy with a full tummy!
They have a set price menu which you can order as much as you like from. You won't find any cheap fillers here, it's all great quality, fresh seafood and meats with plenty of veggie options.
Also included in the price is aromatic duck (1/4, 1/2, whole depending on party size). A couple of recommendations are the salt & pepper squid - (oh, so good!) and peached king prawns - they're addictive.
The price is £17 for adults and £11 for children. This is great value and we will keep coming back.
You'll need to book as this place gets very busy. Your booking is also for a 2 hr sitting, so it's not ideal for a long meal - but definitely worth a visit!
They also do a buffet on a Sunday which is always popular.
Dined at The Emperor last night with my 2 daughters and where the first people in (Monday 6pm), we where sat in a nice spot, in front of the TV playing a pleasent aquarium DVD. Gnetle lighting and a warm ambiance The staff where friendly and the food very nice. The bill for the three of us came to around £66 including a 10% service fee, which I thought was an acceptible price.
I would have given this restaurant 4 out of 5 if it wasn't for 2 things. (1) The second group that came in where sat immediately next to us, this was annoying as the restaurant was completely empty, so why sit another table on top of us??, (2) The 10% service is included in the bill, yet the girl who brought me the credit card machine asked in front of everyone if I'd like to leave a tip?.. I angrily told her is was already included.
3 out of 5, must try harder.
They do shark fin soup.
