We were greeted at the hostess
We were greeted at the hostess station rightaway. We did reserve a table, and we were seated promptly.Imperial Garden is a relaxed restaurant with a wonderful menu. We enjoy its comfortable, formal, Asian atmosphere. We ordered drinks (usually Tsing Tao for me plum wine for my wife and later glasses or bottle of a Riesling. We ordered fried dumplings along with three delicacies sizzling rice soup, and they were very good. Our entrees were Imperial Chicken, pork fried rice and shrimp fried rice. The Imperial Chicken was well prepared with excellent seasoning and served with steamed rice. They offer several kinds of tea. Our server was prompt and friendly. We will be back as always.

Good Food, Good People
When we arrived they had our reservation on the list and we were seated quickly. The server was pleasant and accommodating. The food was great and served hot. Since it was a weekend night, the room filled up quickly, but our server didn't miss a beat with our order. The only negative was that our table was too small for all that we ordered!

It was both slow and busy on our visit. We were seated almost immediately once our reservation was found. Only a few tables were being used, but they were also turning quickly. Seemed like there was only 1 or two wait staff, so he was hopping around all night! Even with a large party entering, there wasn't a noticeable slow-down in the service. Only one small hiccup and I will attribute that to our waiter being overwhelmed. Overall he handled it extremely well. The food was great as always! Tried some new dishes out, I don't remember lamb always being on there. The lamb though, took on such complex flavors, it was delicious.

We have eaten here before and have
always been very satisfied. The food is
very good, and portions more than generous.
Wide variety of choices with very
reasonable prices. They have remodeled
since we were here last and the
atmosphere is pleasant. Outstanding
gardens around the perimeter of the building.

'Old school' Chinese done very well
This is a large, attractive, comfortable dining room with a cozy inviting atmosphere. The service is great - warm and unpretentious. The menu features familiar favorites done very well - fresh ingredients, high quality cuts of meat, flavorful shrimp, etc. The soups are particularly fresh and taste homemade in the best sense. Go and enjoy.

By taking advantage of the Imperial banquet style dinner I introduced five of my relatives to authentic Chinese cuisine. All of them told me they had an excellent time and truly enjoyed the experience. The food was great; and the service was even better. If you like Chinese food this is the place to go.

I'll be back
What a gem! This was my first visit, made while on the road for business.
Delightful ambience, great and professional wait staff, and really nice food. I started with the pan fried pot stickers and followed that with the Black Pepper Beef. Main course was served sizzling style at the tableside. Delicious!
I look forward to visiting again during my next trip to Madison.

Wonderful & Unique
The food here is consistent, and top quality. The only Chinese restaurant in town that makes food this way. 3 examples are the eggrolls (they make their own wraps home made), the Mu Shu (fresh, crunchy, flavorful veggies with virtually no sauce - an incredible talent), and the Governor's dishes-spicy, but mostly full of flavor unlike any version of Kung Pao around.
