Imperial Lamian Ratings and Reviews
Hate the loooong 80-90 min drive to Chicago because of traffic, but this restaurant makes it worth it in the end. Since the restaurant opened last year, we've probably gone here every other month.
Our favorite foods are stuffed chicken wing, the seasonal soft shell crab, xiao long bao, different noodle dishes, and the ribs. Our son would just eat the xiao long bao for dinner and be completely happy.
This is, in our opinion, the best Chinese restaurant in Chicago.
We love this place! The service (Erin is amazing), the staff (they always remember us), the cuisine is fabulous!
I work for a Meeting Planning Company and have raved about this restaurant from here to Hong Kong in my travels.
We look forward to our next experience.
The dim sum at Imperial Lamian really steal the show, but they are not the only good thing on the menu. The forbidden forest cocktail was delightful, the minced pork la mian was just spicy enough (make sure you get it with the wontons, they're delicious), and the desserts were fun and tasty. Our server was fantastic and very helpful. Overall excellent experience and I will be visiting again.
I really enjoy this restaurant! This is my third trip there and none of my experiences have left me wanting. The service is always excellent the servers are always very knowledgeable and attentive my water glass is never empty they offer a second drink before the first one is empty which I always appreciate. Their suggestions were spot on and I enjoyed everything that we tried. The food is fantastic very flavorful and very well thought out. We got to watch the noodle maker and that was really fun.
The food was wonderful - we went especially for the dumplings, but each dish we ordered was tasty and cooked perfectly. The only thing that could be better would be more vegetarian options that do not have shellfish sauce as y daughter is allergic to shellfish. One dish my son and I loved was the beef broth soup with short ribs, fresh noodles and baby bok choy.
Our first time here after discovering Imperial Lamian after closing hours on our last trip to Chicago. Our server helped guide us through the menu and recommended great vegetarian options for my Dad. We took advantage of the delicious $1 Shanghai XLB dimsum. Overall, excellent food, we will be back soon!
The creative spin on dim sum classics was really fun. The taro puffs and dumplings were excellent. Our service from host to food runner was nice and friendly. It's a little pricey when compared to authentic Chinese dim sum. But it's worth it every now and then.
Friendly attentive service from the moment you walk through the door. The recommendations for starters were spot-on - we would never have thought of ordering the "turnip" but it was spectacular. The duck was excellent as always - and the noodles are freshly made right there in the open kitchen. Great addition to the Chicago restaurant scene.
The service was top notch, and the food followed right behind. Our server did a great job suggesting dishes that were easy to share. She also knew a lot about the menu and how to pace the food as it was brought to our table! I highly recommend the homemade noodles and soup dumplings!
Food was very good; however, we were a bit overwhelmed by the menu - too many choices and the waiter was a little hard to understand. he was quite nice but heavy accent. Lots of choices to make for lunch. very nice presentation and wish we had ordered dessert although we had no room.
I always enjoy the wonderful fresh dim sum and noodles, the creativity is awesome.
Courtney has become a great partner in the experience and a wonderful epicurean guide to the varied delicacies.
You are greeted by the owner and always pleasant staff and this truly feels like home.
