“authentic Chinese food of the finest quality”
Once the site of Portland's first deluxe Chinese Restaurant, The Empire (1916-1953), our doors are open once again to serve authentic Chinese food of the finest quality. Our kitchen specializes in Dim Sum, a style of Chinese brunch comprised of delectable dumplings and savory small dishes meant to be leisurely eaten family-style. The menu also features traditional and modern Chinese soul food, sourced locally, taking advantage of Maine’s amazing natural offerings. We invite you to join us in the true spirit of Dim Sum, to have a nourishing meal in the company of friends and family.
Coastal Maine might not seem like the most natural place for premium dim sum, but aficionados rave over the har gow, shu mai and classic soup dumplings (all served to order, not from carts). Larger plates include bacon-fried rice and kale with broad rice noodles. Fun fact: The space was the site of Portland's very first Chinese restaurant, which opened in 1916.
