Empire Chinese Kitchen

Everyone has a favorite dish on Empire’s mouthwatering menu, so go ahead and order them all. Empire raises the bar in Portland for Chinese food, with garlic green beans, duck fried rice, lobster longevity noodles, and a nice selection of dim sum. Classics like kung pao chicken and orange beef are well represented, too, all in an energetic, cheerful atmosphere. A full schedule of music and other events is presented upstairs.
