Homely Chinese food

What a quaint restaurant serving all your favourites. The service was friendly & fast. Food was as you would expect with the honey prawns and Mongolian lamb being our favourites. It is excellent value but we did find some of the serving sizes small, particularly the fried rice. The best thing was... read more

The Pearl Garden is a pleasant Chinese Restaurant offering mid priced Chinese food. Pricing is higher than average and service is horrific . The waitress whilst very pleasant appeared to have no ideas on how to ply her trade. Food service was very slow . Not my first choice to eat Asian in the area.....

Have been fortunate enough to be eating from Pearl Garden since they first started in Maleny. I have moved to Brisbane North side and having visited with family yesterday when we decided to get Chinese takeaway was reminded how lucky Maleny is to have Jo and Connie cooking for them as their as the quick local takeaway that nothing around...

I felt like I was in a Chinese restaurant from the 70's. Simple classic Chinese restaurant decor. Good filling meals. Good service. Good price!

We have ordered take-away many times & the food has always been fresh, packed full of vegetables & a wholesome meal for the family. The fried rice is yummy as is the beef & ginger stirfry! Enjoy!

There was nothing startling about the service or the food at this restaurant, however I did find that the cool can cook special dishes and accoutrements like great chilli is available on request. My suggestion is to ask if your favourite is not on the menu, it may surprise you.

Service was pleasant. We decided to take away because the ambience seemed a little depressing. The food was average. As an Asian Cuisine Chef myself, it lacked authentic taste and consistency. Chicken was dry and burnt, rice was claggy bland and the beef was wash mushy and we didn't ask for braised beef either. Sorry but we werent' impressed.

A featureless restaurant using unpleasant plastic tableclothes. Food average, prices average, service average, but what a depressing place to eat out. I have friends who own chinese restaurants and they all do it so much better than this. Desperately needs a makeover and refurbishment.
