Empire Shopping Gallery is definitely not a place for me to shop. If I really wanted to shop, I would've gone to One Utama or Sunway Pyramid. So why do I come here? Simple, food. I come here every weekend for brunch at Dave's Deli or Chili's. It's pretty close to my house and parking here is pretty easy as there is always space unlike other malls on the weekends.
Yeah, that makes this place really convenient for me. I also followed my friend here to Fitness First for numerous trial runs. Yes, you heard me, I went for their trial period for about a month without a problem. This isn't a place for you to go if you're looking for some sightseeing unless you're planning on visiting Subang Parade and Carrefour as well but it makes a pretty good place to find food.
The birth of this mall can be considered as a breather for the youngsters of Subang Jaya. After over 20 years, local residents can now enjoy two malls located close to each other for more shopping experience.
The malls is just an adequate size, perfect for an urban, residential mall. The shops are nice and offer a great choice for shoppers. Each floor is dedicated to each level of age. From kids to adults and the eatery area is located at the ground floor.
Finding food in Empire is simply easy. In fact, you're offered with a plenty of choice from snacks to restaurants and bars. Surely you will find one to satisfy your hunger pangs.
Parking is a breeze too with levels of basement parking. But come weekends and public holidays, the place will be jam-packed and you need to be patient to get a spot.
After all, this mall is a great place for family to hang out.
This is the building that had an explosion recently. Before the explosion, I often have my lunch in Empire. There are a lot of choices from Chinese cuisine, Vietnam cuisine, Western cuisine to local delicacy. Other than that, you have Starbuck if you are looking for tea break. I did not spend much other than food in Empire as goods sold in Empire are quite expensive. Their target customers are mainly businessman and expatriates. They had renovated intensively after the explosion, the car park looks really user friendly and safer. Nothing much changed after the explosion, and I still went there for lunch and sometime dinner.
