This restaurant is permanently closed. Emeril's Tchoup Chop (pronounced chop-chop) is the hottest table in Orlando, and Lagasse's second location at Universal Studios. The name offers a hint of New Orleans' famous Tchoupitoulas Street, home to Emeril's flagship restaurant, and the bold culinary term "chop".

Located at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers a dining experience unlike any other created by the famous master chef. In both atmosphere and menu, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers diners a unique and exotic journey through the Pacific Seas with a delicious experience of Asian and Polynesian influences complemented by his signature bold flavors - a perfect complement for the Royal Pacific Resort.

Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no tank tops for men.

We had a very nice meal here on New Year’s Eve — too bad it’s closed.

First I’d like to say that the atmosphere is beautiful. The Sushi is delicious and the drinks are too bad either. I would not recommend the Caesar salad- it was very bland but the rest of our meals were GREAT!!!!!

Tchoup Chop offered excellent Asian-style cuisine and provided a great environment for a quite celebration. The waitress was very nice and even brought us a surprise birthday dessert at the end of the meal. With the Emeril name, I was expecting some unique dishes with unique flavors. The menu was very diverse and we had a great time.

Not good for a special occasion, my wife’s birthday. They said happy birthday at the beginning but no further mention. Service was weak. Our waiter upcharged me at every turn. Ordered a Manhattan and he brought me a Manhattan which I thought tasted off. Turned out it was an upcharge for Scotch. If i has wanted a Rob Roy I would have ordered one. Very weak service for the prices. Food was good but not great. Pretty weak experience for a $200 tab for 2 adults and 2 kids ordering off the kids menu.

The restaurant decor is beautiful! Nice lighting and seating is comfortable.

The service was a bit odd because the servers tried to be posh, but failed miserably. Using phrases such as, "if I may..." in an awkward way, "would ourselves like this..." which makes no sense. Someone needs to teach these young servers the art of the English language and how to speak it properly.

The food was mediocre and very salty. The ribs were the only good thing...fall off the bone yummy.

Overall disappointed with the choice.

Food was of very good quality as expected from dining there at previous trips to this hotel. However Service left much to be desired. I had no idea who our actual Waiter was as there were 3 -4 different people servicing our table. All of them were "nice" but none of them as attentive as an actual waiter for a restaurant of this caliber should be. It was a busy wknd so i can understand some of the chaos , but still not what i expected for a venue of this kind. Food on other hand was extremely tasty.

Christmas Day ! Supposed to be a good dinner with my husband and toddler. Let me talk about the food first. Spam musubi! The worst version they made. I don’t understand why change the original ingredients and how to make it. It was disappointing especially for the price. The rice was not even sticky rice and just plain steamed rice. Second, my husband’s prime rib. Who puts sweet sauce on a prime rib? Again, make it simple and make sure when you change it up or add sauce to it, it’s good! My husband loves steak and he couldn’t even eat 1/4 of it. He kept telling himself while eating it that he’d get used to it. The waiter even agreed it’s not good. Lastly, my daughter’s food portion was so small. Please don’t tell me a big child would be full in that small amount of food. Plus the food was cold and my toddler didn’t even want to eat it.

Another issue, we overhead our waiter talking to the table next to us that he’s leaving the restaurant and that he’s going to a much better place. Who says that ? He’s carrying the brand and he goes and tells the guests about leaving the restaurant for another one at Disney springs?

It was a horrible experience and we know not to go back. Food was low quality and overpriced!
