Ate here due to positive online reviews. Unfortunately no one in our group thought highly of the food. I currently live in China (Macau) and the food was nothing like authentic Chinese food. It wasn't much like good Canadian Chinese food either.

I heard this place was good and saw the good reviews so I was craving chinese food so thought we would check it out.. The chicken fried rice seemed over boiled.. kinda mushy.. Pork chow mein was flavorless and really oily like.. Schezuean chicken was good. Stir fried vegetables were also bland.. It wasn't terrible but I probably will not... More

Homemade eggs rolls! Delicious and very large. Plate portions are very generous. Veggies cooked perfectly, not over or underdone at all. Ordered four dishes and plenty for five people

Friends recommended this restaurant for good Chinese food and we were not disappointed. The service was incredible and we waited no time at all for our food. The shrimp with paradise sauce was amazing. This is our new favourite Chinese restaurant :)

Have been to the Pearl River many times and it is always amazing. Their food is always fresh and is not like the typical Chinese food. I would call it a gourmet Chinese food. Staff are wonderful and very accommodating.

We ordered food for a meeting and I was impressed with the quality of the food. We ordered chicken fried rice, Cantonese chow mein house special, Shanghai noodles, Singapore noodles, diced chicken with almonds, honey garlic chicken, beef Szechuan, and barbecue pork with pea pods. I noticed several people coming in to pick up their take out order.

A friend has recommended Pearl River for years. We finally went when family came to visit. You can tell that Pearl River used to be the best place in town for great Chinese food. Yet, other places seem to have ousted it in popularity, even though the food was great and the service was top notch. We ordered the dinner... More

This is the spot for Cantonese. The menu is extensive and every dish is served hot and to perfection. The service is attentive and accomodating as we alwasy order sans MSG. Try the salt and pepper oyster, just superb!
