Went to a friend's wedding last weekend. First banquet I tried at Empire Garden. Comments in no particular order:
- shark's fin soup had zero shark's fin (they should have called it shrimp/chicken soup)
- beef steak was chewy
- seafood nest had shrimp that weren't deveined (my pet peeve :-)
- deep fried chicken was ok
- crab claw was good
Most of the dishes were definitely a notch or two below China Pearl's...
