Out shopping looking for lunch, saw China Pearl. Beautifully decorated inside. We were asked if we wanted dim sum or the buffet, we took the buffet. Obviously, they want to be a dim sum restaurant because the buffet was awful. We arrived at 12:30 and the entrees were so picked over there was barely one serving left. The appetizers had... More

The lunch buffet in this place is awful. The food is cold and there is very little of it. Do not even try it. There is only about 8 selections on the buffet and some of those trays were empty.

I am going to the Health Dept to report this place. We have a video: while dining, mice was running around and we told the server. Do you know what she did? She started laugh and told another server who told the Manager.... The manager came with a plastic bag in his hand to go catch the mice. Ohh My... More

Good food, they have bar size appetizers that are a great deal. They will accommodate your wishes and make you whatever you like. They have Keno too and other bar games. Kareoke on Saturday nites is entertaining.

Stopped at 5:00PM and had a combo plate fried rice, spare rib, egg roll and crab Rangoon. The rice was cold and gummy. They reheated it but it was awful. The other items was barely warm. I think it was left overs from lunch. The Resturant was empty which should have warned me.

Good Chinese Food and nice Lobster. But the steam sea bass is terrible, the smell is too much. Veg with meat is good. Seaweed soup is good. Steam Boston lobster is not too bad but not meaty enough. The soup within the lobster is not tasty enough, I have tasted better. I still prefer it baked. Service is prompt.

I am really surprised by the low ratings for China Pearl. I am a white American guy, but married into Chinese culture and our entire family loves China Pearl for its authentic dim sum offerings. Very delicious. Reasonably priced. And conveniently located just off Route 128 not far from Route 93/95 junction. I really love authentic Chinese, so maybe that... More

Rude staff, bad food and false bill. When we pointed out the wrong prices in the bill, manager sad that they already increased the prices, but not changed it in menu yet. Really??? In XXI century in USA??? Whoa... Okay, doesn't matter. If you don't like to be a fool and pay for it, don't go there.
