Good Food & Timely Service for Lunch

A business associate and I went to lunch and had limited time. Although we waited at the door a few minutes to be seated (They did not hear us come in.), the rest of the service was very timely and the staff was friendly. We both ordered Pad Thai and were very pleased with our meals. We did not... read more

My wife and I have been coming here for decades and have always enjoyed the food. Cuisine has evolved from a really good Chinese restaurant to Asian Fusion of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese fare along with sushi. Their new sushi chef has taken the sushi to a whole new level, some of the best I've had anywhere. He is... More

This was my first visit to Pearl of the Orient but it will not be my last. It was a thoroughly enjoyable meal that was well paced with attentive wait staff and relaxing decor. I went with a friend and we started our meal with the Tom Yum Goong soup for 2. As good as the rest of the meal... More

This restaurant is way above average. There are specials everyday. The servers are courteous and seem to be happy they are there. Our server asked many times if there was anything else we needed. The Sushi was excellent! The soup was outstanding! It is a little pricey. But a good value for the price. Easy to get too. Free parking... More

We used to enjoy going to Pearl of the Orient in the late 90s and early 2001 but have not been there in several years. The food was not good and the restaurant seems very shabby. Table was cracked and utensils were rusty.

We like going to the Pearl for special occasions. We love, love certain items on the menu, definitely the Orange Chicken, and the Yan Baos (sp?). It is a GREAT deal to go on Monday and get the 2nd chicken entree for $1. Have always had good service, and owners usually check in on us during service.

Very pleased with their gluten free menu options; especially, the soft Vietnamese Shrimp Rolls (2 pcs.) for $5...AMAZING (for GF). Express Lunch deals for $5.50 M-F, with generous portions.

Just had dinner there tonight. The crew there is very nice and the bar tender has been there for as long as I can remember. Nice. Respectful. The portions are embarrassingly huge and would suggest splitting. My girl had the spicy salmon roll and said it was very good (I'm not a sushi guy). We were with a friend of... More

There is something for everyone. I don't necessarily like traditional Chinese food, but I like Japanese and Thai food. I like Pearl of the Orient because of the breadth of selections on their menu.

I have been going to the Pearl of the Orient for 30 years, and have never been disappointed with the food. We usually do takeout, and the last 2 times part of my order was missing; a REAL pain when you live 2 cities away. So check your entire takeout order BEFORE you leave. I ordered the Singapore Noodles, which... More
