Grand Imperial has all the right ingredients for a great dining experience, all except for the staff. The service we received was seriously sub-standard given the quality of the environment. Our party was a group of seven, and we all ordered three courses each from the set menu, and yet somehow only six meals were delivered each course! I could forgive this if it were just one course, but after we flagged the issue with the head waiter (at entree stage), you'd think he would look ahead to main and dessert to ensure there were seven meals for each course, but no. So each and every course we had to wait until the seventh person's meal was cooked and delivered to the table, by which time our food was going cold, making the food rather average. Moreover, there seemed to be a lack of communication, not only to customers, but also between staff. For example, when the seventh entree was ready, instead of bringing it to our table, one waiter walked it over and placed it on a sideboard only metres away from us, and made no mention of it to any of her colleagues. Minutes later, another waiter spotted the dish, and then walked around the restaurant trying to figure out where the dish was supposed to go.

At no point were we given any apology or offered any compensation or discount. Moreover, they had the nerve to still put a service charge on our bill. The whole experience was utterly embarrassing (as I was entertaining friends from overseas), so I don't recommend this place to anyone. Although the decor was really lovely, and the food reasonably tasty, it can't make up for really bad service. Stay away!

The Grand Imperial is quite simply one of the best restaurant I have been to in London, It the third time I've been, and every time I've had great food and outstanding service.

I dined here for the first time, using a special offer. This should be the perfect opportunity for a restaurant to win over new clientele. Instead, we were made to feel very unwelcome and will not be returning. The service was particularly bad, with an inflexible - and even rude - waiter. The food was average, though reasonably good value for money on the special deal. The staff, however, spoiled the experience.

The Star menu with glass of champagne made this a good value for money deal. Food was pretty good, dim sum were fresh and the lamb and mushroom was good. I had the green tea dessert which was great but others had the strawberry and lychee which was tasteless. Service was friendly but slightly confused - one of the starters arrived much later than the others and they mis-heard an order but fixed it promptly. A nice space as long as you are not looking for intimate and the large number of ethnic Chinese diners having more extensive meals suggests the food is pretty good overall.

Service was good, though there were many staff serving you at different times and some were more friendly than others, which made the poorer ones more obvious. Food was great and felt the theatre menu was very good value for money. Lovely building so the restaurant room was impressive.
