Go for the mediocre chinese food...stay for the slow service

Have been to this restaurant 3 times and each time the food quality and service was progressively worse! Flavor is bland, very oily. only decent dish was a simple 'kai lan'/chinese greens sauteed with garlic. The service was very slow. Our waiter was argumentative when we asked why our food... read more

We ordered take out, and found it to be very good. The portions were large and the food was exactly as described. I am a fan of lo mein without a ton of vegetables. This order was mostly noodles and beef, just the way I prefer, but if you want a lot of vegetables it may not be for you.

Decided to try them for the lunch buffet. Very disappointing. The restaurant was dirty. Needed a good cleaning. The buffet was minimal. Food was dry and looked like it had been there awhile. Not much of a selection. Some of the food was just cold. Tongs in the food almost burned your hands. Never saw a waitress after the original... More

We've been here for dim sum a number of times. It compares favorably with dim sum restaurants in Manhattan and Boston. There is plenty of variety and the food is hot and delicious. The workers speak little English and I speak no Mandarin, but somehow, I manage to select my favorite items with little difficulty. It usually costs around $8-10... More

My husband ordered the shrimp kung pao and was served old chicken Kung pao. He says it tasted like something that was freezer burned. We told the waitress it was wrong and she took it back. When they came back with shrimp it was colder than the rest of the plate, which means they had picked out the chicken and... More

We went here with some friends who have been going for years. As a transplant from NY I have generally been underwhelmed by Chinese food in Boston and have not found a true favorite Dim Sum place. I would definitely return to China Pearl though. The food was all quite good. I wish I could make recommendations but catching the... More

The China Pearl is a nice treat for Dim Sum outside of Boston's Chinatown. The food is delicious. The restaurant is not the cleanest. But the staff is very friendly.
