The Emperor's Court

Cheshire House
Manchester Road
Tel: 01606 350683 / 350684

The Emperor's Court is prominently located on Manchester Road, just outside of the town centre in Northwich. It is a large and individually designed restaurant, set on its own with a large car park to front, side and rear. The building is modern and air conditioned with a large seating capacity. At one end of the restaurant is a large licensed bar, to the side is the kitchen area with windows where you can see the hordes of kitchen staff industriously preparing the food over rather menacing burners.

We have also sampled this restaurant on Sunday when it serves a decent buffet lunch throughout the afternoon. The buffet is excellent and well presented, with a choice of soup, starters and main courses for about 8 per head (children half price). One critisism we have with such a service is that although the dishes are rotated to some degree, there is an air of sameness about the menu from week to week. Having said that it is a cheap and cheerful Sunday lunch out for the family and we would recommend it highly for that.

The a la carte menu is fairly extensive although representative of a typical Chinese restaurant. There are no real surprises and the prices are also fairly typical. There are also the usual banquets and set dinners, which tend to be good value for a larger party.

The service is friendly and efficient and the food always presented fresh and hot. The waiters and waitresses are attentive and courteous.

Verdict - A good provincial Chinese restaurant. Large enough to accommodate large parties and children easily and discretely. Food is good and prices are average, no real negatives or superlatives. Sunday buffet is good value.

Sunday Buffet

We have followed up our previous visit by two more Sunday lunchtimes.

The menu has now changed slightly although disappointingly it was the same on both visits

The menu was chicken & sweetcorn soup, prawn crackers, spring rolls, prawn & sesame toas, spare ribs and salt and pepper chicken.

Main courses were chicken chow mein, sweet and sour pork, beef in oyster sauce, pork in blackbean sauce, Sichuan chicken and egg fried rice.

Very enjoyable and great value for money. Recommended.
