Very good...

It's been years since we've eaten at Pearl of the Orient. We didn't stop for any particular reason. We just didn't go for a while. The restaurant is much smaller than the last time we went. It probably has a third as many tables. I got the orange chicken. It was good. The sauce was excellent... read more

We visited Pearl of the Orient in Rocky River 1/23/2016. Our server Alex greeted us warmly and immediately asked to take our drink order. I enjoyed my Mai Tai. Our Tom Yum Goong soup was excellent with a rich broth and a nice amount of heat. Our entrees (Empress Chicken & Happy Family) were also very enjoyable. We've always enjoyed... More

Cannot compare this location with the excellent food at the Shaker Heights location. I cannot comment on sushi as I don't eat it, but the Chinese food was mediocre at best. Excellent early bird dinner special price. The restaurant itself had a nice atmosphere.

A west side standard for high quality, good food and great service. Pearl has been serving the area for at least 20 years and is always a consistent choice for a nice evening out.

Went on a Saturday. The staff were very nice. There was a tiny wait to get order in, bit of a wait to get food. We had Tom Yum soup (good- a little salty but shrimp perfectly cooked and delicious), Thai noodle salad (outstanding), some chinese dishes and kids had sweet sour chicken--all large portions, delicious, and fresh.

My wife and I have been coming here for decades and have always enjoyed the food.
