Palais Imperial (Chinese food oasis in the West Island desert)

Has anyone tried this spot since it changed hands in December? A highly reliable source tells me the new management is connected to a former partner in the legendary Cuisine Szechuan on Guy. I stopped by to scope it out as I was in the area.

While I understand the menu will continue to feature the Canadian-Chinese staples loved by West Islanders, I'm told everything is made with love AND with the highest quality ingredients. But VERY interestingly, they're doing some szechuan dishes on a special menu. The "sliced fish in tofu flower broth" I used to inhale at Cuisine Szechuan is offered at Palais Imperial as "volcano fish". I live downtown but I'll be making a special trip sometime soon to get my fix. West Island Chowhounders (Uncle Steve, if you're reading this, I'm talking to you), please check it out and report back!
