About The Empire Restaurant
With elegant white table cloths and traditional Chinese decor, The Empire Restaurant creates the perfect setting for enjoying a classic Cantonese meal in. Located on Bowfell Road, this quaint restaurant is a favourite among the Chinese cuisine loving population of Manchester’s Urmston, dishing up all of the old favourites with plenty of meat, seafood and vegetarian options on the menu. Share some dim sum like the sui mai (steamed pork dumplings) or fun kau (deep-fried prawns in crispy pancakes), before moving on to some sweet & sour spare ribs, sizzling tiger prawns in a satay sauce, Sichuan-style chicken or crispy shredded beef. Those feeling adventurous will find plenty of authentic options to go for like the birds nest dishes and frogs legs, while veggies will be spoiled for choice too with dishes like the pagoda bean curd.

Really enjoyable evening at The Empire. Staff so friendly. Food amazing and reasonably priced. One of the party was 10 and they were fantastic with him. We were celebrating a birthday with friends...they had brought a gift and card. Staff noticed and, totally unpromted, dimmed the lights and brought out a birthday cake with candles. A lovely touch as we hadn't stated it was a birthday when booking. Will definitely be going back.
I love this restaurant and can highly recommend it to anyone!!! The food is excellent, the staff are really friendly and it's reasonably priced. It's a good idea to book in advance though as it does get very busy!!!
