Empire Szechuan Gourmet Restaurant Review

: Empire offers consistent quality and value via its vast list of the robustly seasoned dishes of China's north, Japanese fare and sushi. Service leans to the perfunctory, but if it's a jolt of red pepper and black bean that you require, this eatery will deliver. (Actually, it does that, too).
