Imperial Lamian, the Chicago based oriental restaurant offers authentic and refined Chinese cuisine in a stylish environment, specializing in hand-pulled Lamian noodles, freshly made dim sum, and wok-fired entrées. Eating at the Imperial Lamian is not only a culinary experience but a cultural one as well.
An Oriental Welcome
When making yourself to the entrance of Imperial Lamian you are greeted in an elaborate foyer with hand-made Oriental screens and unique birdcage pendant lights that shimmer from above.
The Main Dining Room
Moving on to the main dining area, and yes, I said main. Because the Imperial Lamian has three dining rooms and a bar. All custom designed with oriental influences cascading through the rooms.
As mention this is the main dining room, the large dining space can hold up to 120 guests. Next, to that, for those who like knowing what’s going on behind the scenes. There’s window stretched over the span of the main dining room. That allows a behind the scenes peek at what the chefs are doing.
The Ming Dining Room
This dining room is semi-private, blocked off from the main dining area with oriental screens. It provides for a more intimate gathering that the Main dining room does. Perfect, if you want to escape the intensity from the main dining room.
The Imperial Dining Room
Even more secluded than the Ming room, the Imperial room is located on the end of the Imperial Lamian restaurant and seats up to 30 guests. The overall design throughout the rooms peppered by subtle and not so subtle Chinese design.
Especially For You
As for the specialities of the Imperial Lamian, practices the art of hand-pulled (La meaning pull, mian meaning noodle). An ancient Chinese tradition dating back to the 16th century. And the other speciality is the creation of Dim Sum. Featuring over 10 varieties of Dim Sum and six colourful varieties of Xiao Long Bao or “soup dumplings,” to be enjoyed with their Lamain.
So if your ever in Chicago in need of a good restaurant, be sure to check out the Imperial Lamian
