Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It’s a fair sized place. All the staff are really nice. The service was unhurried, which meant we could enjoy the food. All the dishes we tried were very tasty.

The restaurant atmosphere is pleasant and the staff attentive. Unfortunately the food was so awful we couldn’t eat it. The Satay tofu was not only tasteless but very greasy, the singapore noodles also was covered in oil and had a very strange taste, slightly metallic....On calling the waiting staff over, I explained the problem to be told that they don’t add peanuts to a satay sauce unless it is a dipping sauce! Having eaten chinese food all over the world and indeed having been to many cooking schools in the far east, I do know what a satay should taste like. The staff were very nice and didn’t charge us for the food, only the drinks we had. It is disappointing especially as a lot of the reviews were positive.More

Vegans/veggies! Get in on this action! So many mock meat dishes and every time we go it's tasty. We wish we lived nearer as we would order takeaway regularly!

Unfortunately Dragon Pearl seem to prioritise takeaways over the restaurant. When we sat down, drink order was taken but after 10 minutes we were yet to receive them. We had to wave them over to get our order taken. When the starter came out it...was the wrong one. After 5 minutes we said don’t worry we’ll have that one you brought out, they said sure they’ll plate it back up. 15 minutes later it came out luke warm. 1.5 hours after sitting down, the main came out, all the meals were present except for a portion of rice. After 5 minutes we let them know it was missing and it came out shortly after. Unfortunately we found a big hair in one of the mains, we understand this can happen in a restaurant but after the poor service it was just another thing to go wrong. As I said food was good, so would have been 3/5 but minus one for the hair in the meal.More

Very underwhelmed by the food. Poorly presented. Personally I felt it was rather slimy. The restaurant smells. Unusual ambiance. Overpriced (very) Wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

Popped in here on a Saturday with the family off the back of a few recommendations Unfortunately it turned out to be a disappointing evening Food didn’t come out together which wasn’t great but worse still what did come out was essentially served up in...a slop piled up on a plate and the quality was very average at best The chicken balls to be fair were nice but the rest wasn’t great and being honest it was really pricey too, some dishes were nearly double the price of the takeaway, it cost us nearly £80 for the 3 of us!!!! Personally I wouldn’t recommend the restaurant, maybe the takeaway option is better and ALOT cheaper too by the looks of it Shame really as we had high hopes based on other reviews :(More

First of all I would like to say thank you very much to the lovely lady who took our Take Out order. For a first timer to Chinese Take Away, she was very patient and kind to answering my questions. A brilliant start👍 As for...the food Beef Chow Mein and Spring Rolls was an ideal meal for the two of us last night. Thank you very much indeed. 👌👌👌More
