Reviews for Empire Chinese Kitchen

This was our first visit, thanks to my fellow Yelpers and a couple of recommendations from friends, and WOW!!! The three of us ordered at least 5 entrees (to share happy family, style) with spring rolls, egg rolls, lobster Rangoon, etc.... In other words, nearly half the menu. This is probably the most authentic, best Chinese I've ever had. Extraordinary! The staff was just as exceptional from taking my order and packing it up. We thank them all for this wonderful experience!

Empire Chinese has become one of my Portland go-to's for their fun Chinese-American/Maine twists. Their soup dumplings are always good and the bacon fried rice hits the spot too. As I'm writing this review I've got a craving for their honey shrimp as well. It's basically all really good.

This place has been on my list for ages. I'm glad I finally tried it. The eggplant was delicious if a little sweet. I loved the string beans - perfectly cooked and not greasy. The duck fried rice didn't live up to the hype and I found myself wishing it was just plain rice. The soup dumplings were delicious if a little too cold from takeout. Overall a solid spot but wishing there was a less oily feel to the food.
