We ate here once and would have returned if we had had time. It is on an upper level of building. The food was lovely, would highly recommend it. We shared duck pancakes to start, they prepare them and served them rolled and filled at the table. The fish was lovely too.

Looking for a solid place for Chinese food, then this is the place. Located not far from the cable car stop this place offers a variety of dishes and taste great.

This spot was not only delicious, it was fun! We found the restaurant and in my opinion, the outside is a bit deceptive. The restaurant is on the second floor. They were busy. The gentleman who took our orders suggested we order several different dishes and share. They had a large lazy susan spinning disc in the center of our... More

We were so happy that we decided on an early dinner (the restaurant opened at 5:00). The food was excellent, the service was attentive and the dinning room, on the 2nd floor, had a pleasant atmosphere. When we left there was a long line waiting to be seated, always a good indicator.

Finding a nice restaurant can be very difficult when there is so much choice but the Oriental Pearl will not disappoint. We had the set menu for 27 USD a head and the food was the best Chinese we have eaten anywhere in the world with everything being fresh and we were able to taste every flavour . The restaurant...

This was a return visit because we had such a nice experience previously. The decor is pretty and the staff is friendly. But unlike before, we were rushed through the entire meal. There is an extensive menu and I did not have time to read through it. Having ordered, the entree came while we were only half way through the... More

So b/c the hotel (Hyatt Regency) recommended this place to us we went for it but should have kept on walking. The food was ok, nothing memorable. I ordered the beef satay ribs and they were slightly fatty + chewy. We are used to TX ribs, where the meat falls off the bone😋❗️ My husband ordered the General Tso's, what... More

Wanted to eat in Chinatown and happened to come across this restaurant. They had lots of plaques on their wall with all kinds of rewards. My friend and I had the dim sum. It was pretty good. The service was great and they did not rush us. The tables are covered with nice white linens and everything is very professional.... More

I was a bit nervous as I was drawn to the reviews that speak poorly of the restaurant. However, there were more reviews that spoke highly of the restaurant which influenced my boss and I to walk through the doors. It was excellent! The staff made recommendations and WOW! The Peking Duck was fantastic, as well as the Almond Shrimp.... More

Staying in Chinatown

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.
