Went to celebrate Graduation - very nice staff, lovely atmosphere, delicious food.
I was a bit worried as some reviews said the staff were surly but they were really friendly and helpful.

Really enjoyed the meal however when it came to pay for the meal I found that both my cards had been declined due to a problem with the restaurants card machine. Luckily we had enough money to pay for the meal however it left us feeling embarrassed as the card was declined 4 times even though there was adequate funds in the account. I have never experienced this before and do not wish to again. Sort out your payment system Pearl of the Orient.

Soft noodles and bean sprouts, sesame toasts were both really nice, unfortunately nothing else that we ordered was. We haven't visited this restaurant for a couple of years and had always had a good experience in the past.
