Ristorante Imperial – Chinese superfood

Turin is a place where you can eat superb Chinese foods: even if all the Chinese people in the city come from the same area of China, you can find many different spots with amazing and tasty dishes.

Ristorante Imperial is, simply, the best I have found so far in my hunt: nice atmosphere, very good interior design, and truly authentic Chinese food, not the food Chinese cook for Italians in many restaurants.

I go down there for the spicy broth (delicious), the salt’n’pepper shrimp, the superb grilled taro. Everything is tasty and delicious, the menu is both in Chinese and Italian (but I bet they have English menus too), and they also have an entire space dedicated to smokers so if you fancy a cigarette you can have it right at your table without going outside.

You will find mainly Chinese customers there, and that is a good sign: they love to stay at their round tables, literally for hours, and enjoy their food.

The restaurant has a private parking lot very close by if you go there by car and, it’s important to note that, since not every Chinese restaurant has it, Imperial does have wine (decent ones too) to go with your food.
