This is my favourite place to eat dim sum. What’s even better is that this restaurant is close to home, so I thought it would write about this place.
I’ve noticed that after a few years of eating at Imperial China, it’s getting busier and busier, especially on the weekends. The last weekend I went, we didn’t book a table and had to wait 40 min. However, a couple of people who had actually booked a table – had to wait even longer, I think it was because they were waiting for a table for 2, which the restaurant has very little of. Ok, so the service fluctuates – as it gets busier, the staff get more stressed and the service starts to go downhill, but the food however, is delicious every time!
The dim sum menu is extensive at Imperial China. My favourite dishes are the pork puff pastries, prawn dumplings and the baby chilli squids.
The pork puff pastries are fresh, flaky and the meat inside is so tasty. The prawn in the prawn dumplings are big, delicious, and the pastry wrapped around the prawns are perfect. The baby chilli squids are on the main menu and are a bit expensive, but are definitely something worth treating yourself too, if you like squid. I love the chilli kick that the crispy squids have.
The standard of food at Imperial China, has always been better than the dim sum restaurants that I’ve been to in China Town. It’s well worth a visit if you like the little parcels of goodness. Just get to the restaurant early!
