I was in Dumfries for one night and picked this restaurant at random as it looked to have a good menu. The place was lovely, the service, food and prices were all excellent. It is not often (see my other reviews !) that I cannot find some fault with a restaurant but this was one of those rare occasions !

We were due to meet up with friends, one of whom is Chinese, on a Saturday lunchtime and they suggested The Pearl Palace in Dumfries town centre. We thought it should be good if our Chinese friend liked it and indeed, we were not disappointed. What amazed us most of all probably was how cheap it was - an unbelievable... More

We ordered a takeaway from here lately and i'm not sure why but we decided to try a different chinese from usual. We both had soup to start which was inedible, my partners special soup smelt off. Our mains weren't up to much either the salt and pepper chicken had a strange texture and the curry sauce was lumpy and... More

Never felt compelled to write review until now. Tripadvisor is perfect for me finding great restaurants to eat at. After reading the reviews about this restaurant, I took the risk and went to try the place. From the outside and it's decor, I wasn't expecting great things. However, it surprised us. The staff were warm and welcoming. The food was... More

Arrived at this restaurant in the afternoon ordered from the main evening menu, the ham was spam and the prawns were boiled without any seasoning, my daughters vegetable fried rice and my prawn and scallop dish were disgusting, The staff served us inbetween eating them selves, no hand washing, and a trip to the toilet that smelled like an open...

When i'm in the mood for some Chinese food, I always end up eating at Pearl Palace. Great taste, massive portions, always flinging in extras for free such as appetisers etc. Run by some very nice staff. Well worth a trip, if you're in the mood for some authentic Chinese cuisine, and very reasonably priced!
