Although the last restaurant closed in a hurry (I know why, but will not divulge) it has now re-opened under (new) management, and under the same name. I am pleased to say you would have to be very churlish not to like it. No MSG,...More

The Imperial China Restaurant offers the most exquisite Chinese and Szechaun food and an extensive menu is offered both in the restaurant and as a take away. New Forest locals have come to accept the friendly, discreet service as the 'norm', but no-one visiting Imperial China fails to comment on the high quality of the food no matter how many times they have eaten there !
