I came here for dim sum several times and outside of Chinatown this is one of the best dim sum places I know of. I was surprised to see so many negative reviews for this restaurant and none of them seems to be about dim sum.

Our son had been raving about this dim sum (and he knows San Francisco's terrific ones), so when he wanted to take us for Mother's Day we did not hesitate. They said a 20 minute wait and it was twenty-five, which is more than honest in my book. Immediately we were struck by how friendly the staff was and when... More

This place kind of assaults your senses. Really dated, not very well kept, one person is friendly, while the next person is aloof. All that said, I needed something quick to take back to my hotel, and this served the purpose well. I had the Chicken Lo Mein, and it was surprisingly good. Hot and fresh, well done Noodles, chicken... More

Didn't care for this food. It was bland, lacked flavor and the staff seemed to not really care about insuring you come back.

**First, if Anyone in your group has a shellfish allergy do Not go here! I repeat - you will eat shellfish. The servers by and large do not speak English well.

Out shopping looking for lunch, saw China Pearl. Beautifully decorated inside. We were asked if we wanted dim sum or the buffet, we took the buffet. Obviously, they want to be a dim sum restaurant because the buffet was awful. We arrived at 12:30 and the entrees were so picked over there was barely one serving left. The appetizers had... More

The lunch buffet in this place is awful. The food is cold and there is very little of it. Do not even try it. There is only about 8 selections on the buffet and some of those trays were empty.

I am going to the Health Dept to report this place. We have a video: while dining, mice was running around and we told the server. Do you know what she did? She started laugh and told another server who told the Manager.... The manager came with a plastic bag in his hand to go catch the mice. Ohh My... More

Good food, they have bar size appetizers that are a great deal. They will accommodate your wishes and make you whatever you like. They have Keno too and other bar games. Kareoke on Saturday nites is entertaining.

Stopped at 5:00PM and had a combo plate fried rice, spare rib, egg roll and crab Rangoon. The rice was cold and gummy. They reheated it but it was awful. The other items was barely warm. I think it was left overs from lunch. The Resturant was empty which should have warned me.
