This is the best asian cuisine restaurant in town. They do Szechwan better than any other restaurant I have EVER been to. They have a dish called Szechwan Family that is AMAZING. I crave it on a daily basis. (Don't mistake it with Szechwan Happy Family, which is just Happy Family with Szechwan Peppers - Szechwan Family is different/better). They have great service, great atmosphere, and their pickup service is fast and hot (I live too far for delivery.)
I'll admit that the cleanliness/decor of this place hasn't improved in 10-15yrs but I still rate it as my fave Chinese food in town (barely). Ever since ownership changed hands, it's cleanliness has dropped and it seems like they never spend any money improving the appearance. But you don't eat appearances, you eat the food and it's pretty good!
I absolutely love this place! I recommend it to everyone! Coming from the east coast, I am a bit of a seafood snob and any seafood I have had in their dishes has been fantastic. The beef and chicken has always been tender and flavorful. Our family always leaves satisfied and happy. The Imperial Palace was one of my first discoveries after moving to Lincoln a little over two years ago.
The food was fairly ok not bad but not the best. The food my friends and I tried was slightly too salty for our taste but then again everyone has different taste so don't take my word for it until you try it. The asian atmosphere is quite nice though.
I love this place. It's not only beautiful inside with Asian decor, they have the best service in town and their food is more than delicious. Try the Princess Beef. Oh yeah, I love the hot and sour soup also. The prices are also very reasonable. Very satisfied when you leave.
This is the first Chinese restaurant that I visited in Lincoln and since then I did not try any other chinese restaurants as I find everything in Imperial Palace is perfect, from the food, the atmostphere to the service! I feel that I am cared personally there! It's not just only food!
