Walked there from nearby motel. Ordered at the bar for food to go. A VERY helpful lady named Grace kindly walked us thru the many choices and customized our order. We enjoyed a beer while waiting. Quality service! Order came up fast as promised and prices very fair. Only sad note is no chow fun or wide noodle, only rice... More

I was in Bishop for a conference. Several people from our group went in for lunch and recommended against going for dinner. Their main complaint seemed to be that the food was bland. Several of us decided to go anyway, and we had a much better experience. The food was bland, but we asked for hot chili paste and soy... More

I am not a big fan of Chinese food, but we were starving after a long drive and didn't fancy pizza or KFC so gave it a bash. I have got to say this was the best Chinese food I have had. Nice surroundings and good service.

We ordered from here to be delivered to our hotel, which is a nice feature.... unfortunately my food was not cooked all the way though and about 30 minutes after eating what I could, my belly didn't feel so hot..... so if I every eat here again I will request for my food to be well done...

I've had my share of Asian food and this place ranks among the best for flavor and freshness. Their "walnut shrimp" is one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten...no exaggeration! Don't miss this place!

Imperial Gourmet has been in Bishop since the early 1980's, at one point being the only store in an otherwise empty mall. When I visited Bishop I used to wonder how they stayed in business. I was finally able to try them out and now I know-the food is wonderful and the service is very special, like you are an... More

This restaurant served standard Chinese food in a nice atmosphere. We had Kung Pao Chicken and Honey Walnut Shrimp. Both were well prepared and tasted good. Their food was much better than you usually get in a small-town Chinese restaurant. I ordered jasmine tea and was served black tea. Service was pretty good.
