I've been eating here regular for 5 years or more, one of the best Asian food restaurants in a 50 mile radius, maybe more.

Imperial Cathay is one of my favorite places to go to lunch. You get a really nice portion size and a cup of their chicken chowder soup (which is amazing). I like eating dinner there, too, but you can't get the chicken chowder at dinner so I mainly go for lunch. The cashew chicken is delicious.

The hot and sour soup was good, but temperature-wise, was only lukewarm. Scallops with hot peppers entree did not have a good flavor and had a lot of oil in it, as did the shrimp and scallop entree, which was bland.

My wife & I tried this Chinese Resturant in Shreveport, LA For Lunch. It is located on Youree Drive. We have never been big fans of Chinese food, but after this visit, our opinion has changed. It was the best Chinese Food we have ever eaten. The quality was outstanding, quantity of food was more than sufficient, and the service... More

I eat here for lunch atleast once, if not twice a week. The food is ALWAYS fresh and yummy, something about this place and the food, its just different, one of a kind. The staff is always friendly and fast and the owner Robert Chu is one hell of a guy!! Nice man!! I LOVE IMPERIAL CATHAY!!

Enjoyed a leisurely lunch with friends. My garlic shrimp plate, from the lunch menu, was quite good; one of my favorites. Of course, as always, I enjoyed the soup. Service was not a problem, but was not up to the standards set by this restaurant on previous visits.

In town for business & tried this as takeout because of both nearby proximity to my hotel & the number of great reviews. My dinner was decently priced and ready very quickly. The staff was friendly, and the restaurant clean & attractive. I got the sweet & sour chicken & fried rice, which was tasty, if predictable. The only negative... More

Ate here while passing through. We have dined here many times in years past when we lived in this area. After a ten year lapse it was a pleasant surprise to find that it is still a top notch establishment. Portions are very large and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Thank G Y
