Great atmosphere, very beautiful inside, decor is nice too. The service is kind and very polite, very impressed. The sushi is what makes the place so good though. Sashimi is fresh and the fried tempura is absolutely delicious. The rolls are stuffed with very little rice, which is good. I highly recommend this place to all sushi lovers.

Pearl Sushi has fresh and delicious sushi. Coming from the west coast I have high expectations for sashimi and Pearl's sashimi didn't disappoint. I really enjoy sushi however my wife isn't keen on it, but she really enjoyed the Chicken Teriyaki. Having many non-sushi items to choose from allowed me to convince my wife to even give this place a... More

Haven't been to this restaurant since last year. It was very nice to see that the choices have really grown with lots of the fancy rolls that my children like yet good high quality sushi for my husband. The wine pour very generous and I was impressed with the tempura shrimp. My husband and friend had tuna, salmon row and... More

We would rate the food better than average but perhaps not quite up to 'very good' - based on just one experience. Certainly nothing to complain about and the service was very friendly and courteous. The food was well presented. The menu is extensive and contains many non-sushi dishes, including some Korean dishes, for those who wish something different from... More

I stopped in to Pearl Sushi this past Sunday for lunch. We were the only people in the restaurant initially. The server gave us some hassle about what we wanted to order. Apparently the menu was changing. The presentation was decent but I was not overwhelmed by the quality of the food. Just so so.

The Pearl remains a pearl in the sushi business. My test is always the Spider Roll since this can be botched in a variety of ways, but the Pearl knows the secrets. They also turn out excellent salads and it all runs quite smoothly. For those in need of a sushi fix during a visit, you can't go wrong here.

The Pearl is just a 1 minute walk from the Avon Theatre. We went for an early dinner after a matinee at the Avon. Food was very, very good. Service was fine and quick. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Prices were excellent. I had the Teriyaki chicken entree and my spouse had a Bento box. The Bento box was very... More

We always order the sushi and sashimi. They have a good, fresh selection. The presentation is always lovely and the service friendly. They have a number of items on the menu, including teriyaki and tempura. Clean, simple setting. Affordable and located in the heart of downtown Stratford. Yummy!

After having been turned away from 5 other restaurants (full) and walking out from the sixth (don't ask) on a Saturday evening, we were resigned to have dinner at McDonalds before our show at the Avon theatre, when we stumbled upon this sushi place. My teenage daughters love raw fish, so they were eager, my wife and I were just... More

Unexpected surprise! Great imaginative rolls and great sushi! So close to Avon and Studio theater works perfect for pre show Plus not as crowded or expensive
