I play bridge in presque Isle, and stop at Oriental Pearl for a take-out container for my mom quite often. I am Canadian and the cost is at par. $6. weekdays. I love their crab rangoon. I get her meats and a couple veg. samples and make my own rice to supplement. Mom loves it and eats it for 3... More

The Oriental Pearl isn't a bad place, it's not great, but definitely not the worst. Northern Maine is not known for our "quality buffets". This place, first and foremost, is a buffet. I've heard great things about the sushi, but have never tried it first hand. If you're expecting good Chinese food off a buffet, then you've clearly never been... More

My husband and I were both sick from eating there. The food looked horrible and tasted worse. Never again will we eat there. They need to put fresher food out

Well, having spent a generation working on the road for my work, I've eaten way too many meals out. I've eaten at truckstops in impoverished Appalachia, motor lodges outside of Altoona, and church basements in South Carolina. I thought I'd experience the worst food you could dream up, but boy, was I ever wrong. That award clearly belongs to the... More

Food was horrible..cold to barely warm....dried out...tasted as if it had sat out all night. We were there 5-5;30 p.m....and we're one of two tables. Some meat tasted as if it had turned before cooking. Even wonton soup wad only lukewarm and had foul taste. Used to eat here when it ease Tang's then it was okay....will never come back.... More

The food was cold and tasted bad, my drink was okay though. I have never had worse Chinese food any where else, and that's saying a lot considering how often I travel.

Can't say much else. I went for lunch and got the buffet. Frankly, I'm not the biggest buffet person; however, even having said that, I've been to pretty decent buffets with better selection than this. Selection in my opinion was light for entrees, to the point of disappointment. Sure, this is Presque Isle Maine and the options are limited, but... More

I used to go to Tangs as a kid and then it turned into the Oriental Pearl, nothing changed really, the food is still good, their fried dough is my favorite.
