The food doesn't justify for the price. It was just passing the okay mark to my standards. Nothing special to wow about. Everything is a little smaller in portion but everything is overpriced!!! Not worth it!! The restaurant itself needs some renovations. Stained up chairs, stained up carpet on the stairs, chipped counter and wall definitely needs new painting to... More

We visited this restaurant last night. I must say that they need to have advertising downstairs on the boardwalk (I couldn't see any). The food was good, not too much 'msg' as written in another review, and it definitely says that the sticky rice has meat with it. The ordinary rice ($2.50) portion size was small, but all other portion... More

Average feels a bit mean but very good feels over the top a a review score. I've only ever had Dim Sum lunch and on the whole it's been good. There's lots to choose from. The best thing about The Pearl is the view and most tables have a view. Great place for lunch.

The food is good. But too expensive. You can find a lot of other Chinese Restaurants for Dim Sum as good as the Pearl Harbourfront but much cheaper than this place. But the environment is very nice. Very close to the lake. You can see the beautiful lake from the window seat.

I was with a friend at Harbourfront and went for an early diner at Pearl Chinese restaurant. Impeccable tables, one million dolar view of the water and an excellent service made a great first impression. When the food came, it was a feast for our taste buds. Each plate was beautifully presented, the food was fresh and the taste incredible.... More

Had just done the boat trip around the islands and came across this restaurant. Great value two course lunch for $14. Well worth a visit.

We came here for Mother's Day. Made reservations ahead of time but still had to wait for 35 minutes (after letting them know we'd arrived 10 minutes before our reservation time) until I went over to ask again how much longer and they seated us right away at that point. It was my first time here, liked the decor, and... More

Used one of those group buying vouchers. Service and location were great. Food was average. Great and spacious for big groups.

I came here for a friend gathering, chosen for it's location in downtown. The food was authentic Chinese food, not the best though. We ordered things like seafood soup, and peking duck. We didn't order too many dishes and like birds and the bill ended up being about $60 a person; I found it to be unbelievable. I bet you... More

Concierge recommended this place. Nice dining experience. Had lunch here with a friend while on a recent business trip. Food was delicious and the service was very good.
