The host was very rude, hence the low service rating. We were the only patrons and were told we could not have a booth due to reservations and could not sit away from the door because there was only 1 waiter. By the time we left, there were 3 booths that had been open the entire time and other tables with the same waiter were sat further from the door. Unfriendly and inflexible for 4:30 PM on Sunday.
The food at Imperial Lamian is a cultural experience. The menu is written in Chinese as well as English along with unique Chinese noodle dishes and amazing soup dumplings makes for a delicious fun dining night.
Average food in a fun atmosphere. I enjoyed the Soup dumplings.
This place is great!
Special Chinese New Year dumplings were the best dishes. Chicken curry was gloppy. Seafood with noodles was tasty but short on seafood. Chicago still doesn’t have a great Chinese restaurant.
Everything that came to our table was wonderful. We can't wait to come back!
The food was amazing! It was my first time here and the waitress explained the entire menu to my husband and I. It was an awesome dining experience! I think everything was reasonably priced and portions were big enough to share. We ordered drinks and those took over twenty minutes to get. We couldn’t find our waitress during that time either, so that was the one negative of the restaurant. We will definitely be back though to try it again!
We went twice... Loved the xiao long bao here - the Sichaun were our favorites. Wontons, Lamian, etc - everything was fabulous. Our only "gripe" would be to make sure your wait staff writes down what is ordered versus trying to remember it off the top of their head. Our waitperson came back 3 times to ask me what I was drinking and then we had a 4th visit for the same question from another waitstaff... Otherwise - great experience overall and definitely recommend Imperial Lamian
Delish!! Freshly made la Mian noodles are amazing. The mushroom la mian is amazing. Great service & ambience. Will definitely be back.
Everything was fine! Excellent attention!
The food was mediocre and the cost was ridiculously high.
The food and the service were excellent! The “Lunar Cake” dessert is very unique and delicious!
It was just me and my wife, but I would highly recommend this restaurant for groups of say 6-10 people, so several dishes can be tried by everyone.
The food was terrible. All really bad.
Here are to many people coming up to your table and milling around.
Great food overall
Peking Duck a little bit on the small side ( portion) - but everything else made it a very good evening and will return!
