Wow! Delightful! We’ve been there now for dinner and lunch; definitely go for lunch if you want fresh carts going around. The chicken feet are nice and soft and delicious, but for dinner they’ve gotten a bit dry on the tops of them, maybe from sitting in a fridge or under a heat lamp. Service? Great! Attentive, fast, informative. Salt and pepper pork chop was cut into smaller pieces than were used to eating, but that was still excellent—crispy, savory, melts in your mouth! Chinese broccoli is a MUST. We adore their fried “football” pork glutinous balls. AMAZING. Shrimp and eggplant dim sum also excellent. I’d recommend maybe leaning away from fried taro cake, as it’s very salty. Go! Please go! So yummy.
Great experience! Hot fast fresh dim sum, open space great for large parties, helpful staff, they even have beer! Love that they start you off with tea and keep it coming, nice touch. Will definitely go back. Good for dairy free eaters. The menu includes pictures and descriptions but part of the fun is being surprised. Be ready for a full parking lot but don’t let it fool you bc the inside houses a lot of seats. It was about $28-30/person for 10 people eating all the things
Last minute thanksgiving dinner with family. Great authentic Chinese food. Their slt pepper pork was crispy. Their beef brisket hot pot was saucy. Even their chili oil is good enough to buy and take home. Normally, I come here for dim sum. Their dim sum has improved greatly. I highly recommend.
The food tastes very authentic and the menu offer many variety dishes. The food is as good as if they were in Asia.
The Empress has been a reliable Cantonese restaurant for a few decades now, even through ownership changes. The large banquet room creates a nice bustling atmosphere, especially on the weekends when dim sum is served on cart. To be honest the dim sum is just ok, but for many Denver Chinese, it’s nostalgic for big family meals. Def prefer going for dinner and ordering dishes like seafood chow mein, crispy pork, and walnut shrimp.
