My husband and I went here for dinner one Sunday night. It was very quiet because it is the week of July 4th and the city is very empty of residents. We had the fried pork dumplings, crystal shrimp dumplings, egg roll, crispy shredded beef and singapore rice noodles. The dumplings, sauce and egg roll were excellent. The beef was a little sweet for us, but still very good. The noodles were differently flavored than they usually are. Most of the time they taste very curry. These taste much more like garam masala. Still good though and large portion. They will be my lunch today. The service is no more surly than many Chinese restaurants in NYC. It was accurate and efficient.

Ate here twice within a few days. Both times, I loved the food, but found the service to be surly/neglectful

This place in Times Square has excellent food enough in the portions to share. However the service was awful to put it mildly. The person running the register did not acknowledge us to seat us, someone came from the back to show us to a table. The waitress barely had the time to waste on taking our orders. Never did get the hot tea I ordered but was leary to ask for it might end up wearing it. Being from the south we got a big dose of New York attitude

My family and friends have eaten at Pearls Chinese restaurant many times. Recently we reserved for a large birthday party of twelve people. Once again, Pearls service and food did not disappoint, as everything we ordered and shared family style -- soups, appetizers, entrees -- was delicious! Pearls lives within a plethora of high profile restaurants on the upper West Side, but it maintains a loyal clientele for good reason! Bon appetit!
