Oriental Pearl is a gem of a restaurant!

Very nice Chinatown restaurant. Great ambiance and service. Chow mein was kind of disappointing, a pile of noodles with hardly any vegetables. But the noodles weren't greasy, and the almond chicken was wonderful. Egg flower soup also very tasty.

We really wanted mooshu pork but they only had duck in pancakes. The pancakes were thick but the duck was tasty. The restaurant was packed with locals and tourists so maybe we missed something. The green beans were very fresh but had a blah taste.

In the past we have always eaten at Khans but it was under renovation We found this restaurant and we pleasantly surprised. I found the food to be better than the other places we had eaten in chinatown. The wait staff were very attentive. We will certainly return

We went there to have a late dinner at 9:30pm and there are still lots of customers there. We ordered duck noodle with preserved vegetables and stirred fried spring beans. Both dishes are quite good. Not top of the chart delicious, but it's still great given that this is in San Francisco. Oh, I need to warn you that the... More

After a 1 mile walk from Fishermans wharf my family of 4 used trip advisor to identify a restaurant nearby. The restaurant on 2nd floor was a stark departure from the noise of the street: linen table clothes and napkins. As trip advisor suggests it's $$ and that's a function of a total a la carte menu. Food was fine... More

We enjoyed our dinner there, Mongolian Beef and a spicy chicken dish, and steamed rice. All dishes are a la carte.

One of our objectives during a fast and furious visit to Chinatown was to have dim sum for the first time. We pulled up Trip Advisor while there and located the Oriental Pearl based on others' reviews and we were not disappointed! A very nice atmosphere and efficient waitstaff, only outdone by delicious food! We explained what we were looking... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
