Eating with Kings
Open daily for lunch and dinner, the Palais Imperial is set on two large floors with private meeting rooms and a few public window seats for people-watching. Sliding panels on the main floor along with one fully private room ensure that family get-togethers or business functions remain private.

Savoury to Spicy
The Palais Imperial offers an enormous menu filled with the usual Cantonese-Szechwan offerings (over 215 dishes). Especially noteworthy are the Singapore-style noodles, steamed sea bass and Szechwan scallops. The Palace also boasts daily lunch specials on such favourites as duck with Chinese mushrooms and bird's nest with chicken and shrimp. Moreover, the friendly staff are very open to preparing specialty dishes not listed on the menu or other favourites with a level of spiciness to match your taste buds.

Upscale But Affordable
Royal purple tablecloths and ornate Oriental art add to the Palais Imperial's elegant d├ęcor. They serve a wide variety of soups and delectable dishes, and prices are very reasonable when you take into account taste, presentation and atmosphere. While the Palace doesn't deliver, this cuisine definitely merits a trip downtown.
