We've dined here several times and every time the service is terrible!!! We've had food that was good and food that was not good. The fried rice tasted like gas and they said it was because the grill wasn't hot enough. If you go for happy hour its a great day. The crispy spring rolls are good. You get really large portions here!

We are 110% sure that our credit card number was stolen because it was the ONLY place that took our card away from us! We will never, ever go here again because of this!!

If you go here, take cash, go for happy hour and make sure you have tons of time because you will be there forever!

I really like Empire Asian Bistro - beautiful upscale Asian Restaurant with diverse menu (sushi, Chinese, Thai, etc) and tasty food. We ordered a variety of entrees - all of which included a soup appetizer. Unfortunately, the entrees arrived within 2 minutes of the apps. The restaurant was not crowded, they didn’t need the table - the kitchen just rushed out the entrees. All the food was great, just badly timed. Hope they will improve this aspect of their service.

We went to dinner for the first time on Mother’s day. Walked in and saw TripAdvisor plaques but, still wondering how because that was one of the slowest services I’ve been to in Harrisburg. They tried to say it was busy but, I would say it was half full. The food was mediocre at best. I don’t know how they’re still in business.

We went for Half price sushi on Sunday deal. We arrived right as they opened 1130 or so. We were seated quickly and given booster seat for my Neice. We were served quickly with drinks and given time to browse the menu. We ordered some cocktails(delicious). The waitress was so cooperative and made herself available. She recommended the Special of Scallops which has the best garlic ginger sauce and welcomes questions about the dish. We ordered 6 rolls of heaven. (Harrisburg roll, Spider Roll, Spicy Salmon, Shrimp tempera roll and 2 others). We were most surprised & appreciated that she offered to serve the children meal first. That was so nice of her to do that. Delicious meal and at the best pricing.

The specialty sushis are fantastic but make sure you request the list from your waiter because it is not part of the regular menu . The service was good , the wine selection is short and inexpensive . The singapore noodles dish is also a winner . Overall a great place to eat japanese food in Harrisburg PA. We recommend it .Cheers !!!
