Highly recommended. Ordered a big family meal for 9. Definitely the best Chinese I have had and will only be coming back here. Lovely telephone communication helpful staff and very friendly. Food was fresh and piping hot, big large portions, and delicious. Nothing to complain about always pleased with this Chinese takeaway.

Lovely food always hot and tasty, very friendly owners, absolutely lovely, good prices, other chinese takeaways in beccles have always been awful with meat being chewy, and swimming in fat, but pearl river is delicious and cooked to perfection.

Only giving this place 1 star as the site does not allow a lesser score. Our main courses were meant to be Pearls Special Rice & Crispy Chicken with Hoi Chin Sauce (see photo). Both dishes were full of gross lumps of meat that had obviously been hastily defrosted. Can't tell you what it tasted like as we just dumped... More

The chicken balls were dry and tasteless. The sweet and sour sauce was gloopy and not the colour it was expected! The egg fried rice was dry, hard and bland. The only thing that made this terrible meal edible was the chips. Next time I'll be going elsewhere.

Food delivered was cold ,sauce was gloopy and probably from a jar .this used to be my Chinese takeaway of choice but I won't be going back .It was also overpriced for what it was .I could get a much fresher ,tastier meal from Marks and Spencer's for £10 !!!

The food here is prepared quickly. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. The sale & pepper ribs are well worth ordering.

Thank Graham H
