Here's the key for this restaurant - do not order off of the menu! The owners are so cool - they will make you legit Chinese food - just tell them what you want - and don't ask for lemon chicken or some other "american" chinese food!! They can make you a custom dish - fish, shrimp, chicken pork or... More

The service was hostile, she sat us next to the entry, there was no discussing it, "sit". While the prices were low, so was the quality of the food. It was within walking distance of the hotel.

I was looking for good Asian food in San Antonio and decided to try the Pearl Inn. There are plenty of Chinese restaurants, but few really good places to eat. I ordered the combination fried rice and my wife ordered the 4 item delight. Portions were huge and we immediately knew that we each had a least another meal to... More

Very relaxing dining room; soft on the eyes as well as the ears. Demure colors and nature reflecting artwork are bound to have you slipping into your Zen zone. Lunch time specials are reasonable, hot and plentiful. I burned the wang out of my tongue on the first bite though (pun intended). Add a bowl of soup for only one... More

The food was great!! Great soup, great waitress :)very tentative!! Not to mention the prices are very reasonable! This place should always have 5 star ratings! Don't decide if you want to come eat here by a rating!! Go try it... It's really good , make your own opinion!!

As a reflection of my review title..yes I am Asian and have lived in San Antonio for almost 30 years. There are very few restaurants that I feel offer authentic asian cuisines in San Antonio and as far as chinese restaurants go Pearl Inn is the ONLY one in town that provides exceptional chinese cuisine. My family over the years... More

We have been getting take-out from Pearl Inn for years. We used to eat there for lunch, but our office moved, so we don't do that anymore. The food here is consistently great and also a great value. You get twice as much food for the same price as chains like Pei Wei. We can order 2 dishes plus an... More

Best Chinese restaurant in south Texas for custom ordered cantonese banquet dinner for 10 or more. Ask Virginia for dishes not on the menu because the menu has the usual fare. Can not be beat for seafood dishes with several days notice.

This restuarant is in close walking distance if you are staying ath the Holiday Inn Express. It was pretty typical Chinese fare in both decor and menu. Meal was satisfying and it's proximity to the hotel made it an excellent alternative to leaving the area by car.
