Reviews for Imperial Tea Court

I came here yesterday to order the fried brown rice with shrimp. I paid $15+ $2 tip for it so it came out it be $17. I put the Togo box in the paper back that they got me and 10 minutes later I found out that oil from the fried rice was getting all over my bag, ipad, wallet, and phone hence why the picture is blurry because there were oil in the lenses !! The brown rice was so oily that the rice kept separating with all the shrimp and vegetables. The customer service was bad full review
I am going to start with the bad. I have been going to this place for a couple decades despite the bad! It is expensive. The service is often slow. The attitude is aloof, even a long time patron will never be noticed. Good luck seeing the chefs! It looks like a vault back there. Why 4 stars? I love the soup and the teas. It is just uniquely exquisite. I wish they could step up their game and make it more homey for us veterans. You expect that from your tea place. Lucky for full review
AMAZINGLY CREATIVE CUISINE. Imperial Tea Court is a small restaurant serving Chinese food. This restaurant is located in a food court, where various types of cuisine can be purchased, for example, sushi (yum, yum, yum) and Mexican cuisine. My goal was to buy forty steamed buns, also known as, "baos." A bao that contains barbequed pork is called a "char siu bao." I ordered 20 bean baos and 20 veggie baos, which I needed for a business meeting the next Saturday. On full review
