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

As always, the food was very good. We had both fresh sushi and Chinese food. Fast service, good quality food, no wait to be seated. We will be back!

The restaurant is pleasant and light-filled from its many windows. We had prompt and attentive service. I was surprised by the huge menu filled with dozens and dozens of Asian dishes from sushi to pad thai to curries to Peking duck. Perhaps that is the problem here: better to do a few dishes and do them exceedingly well. I ordered... More

Great service. Excellent food. Good service. Best asian restaurant on west side of Cleveland. Ask to be seated in front. Sushi is good but not great.

I've been here twice and both times have had a disappointing experience. The service was so bad the second time that the restaurant manager was apologizing and served us himself. The menu has many items to choose from and for that reason alone, I came back again but both times the food was bland and mediocre. The only positive I... More

This restaurant is the best oriental food I have ever eaten. The owners are always at the door to greet you as you enter. The variety of food is excellent and nicely priced. The dining room is very comfortable as well as their outside area. If you sign up with the date of your birthday you get free food on... More

We ordered hot and sour soup and wanton soup. Bother were excellent. But no hard noodles provided as in most east coast Asian restaurants. For main... More

Our food (wonton soup, hot/sour soup, yuen baos, pad Thai and chicken dish were all hot, tasty and served promptly. The restaurant seemed to be very busy at lunch time but there were plenty of servers and our waitress was... More

Our first experience here was a Monday evening. They have great Monday dinner specials and with four in our group, no one was disappointed. We all have a variety of chicken specials and there were no complaints. In fact, my husband and I were so impressed with our meals that we returned the following Saturday afternoon for lunch. We felt... More
