“if you like oily chinese”
Review of Dragon Pearl - CLOSED

Reviewed 16 March 2013

Lets get this straight - it's nicknames "dirty chinese" for a reason. The food is always soaked in oil - excessive- and it's dirty oil. I hear the word consistency used here - consistently oily, consistently slow service and consistently scratching my head wondering have you not eaten real chinese food before? I say if your desperate for chinese come here otherwise make it at home

Very fast service, great tasting chinese cuisine with good portions. Very reasonable. We went out with colleagues from our conference on our penultimate night in Arusha, the bill was a fraction of what we would pay in the UK!

Clean food and place. Louie the owner who is Chinese makes great food. Excellent service. I try to go here often. Tell Louie hi. Yes, the Chinese are even in Africa. Place would hold its own even in the USA with the food quality.

We spent our last night in Tanzania at the Dragon Pearl restaurant, with our friends, safari drivers and Kilimanjaro guide. We had recently eaten at the Chinese restaurant in the New Dodoma Hotel in Dodoma. The Dragon Pearl was good, but not as good as the restaurant in Dodoma.

Food was served fast and hot, but the sauces were a bit overpowering and the flavor was not as good. For a Chinese restaurant in Africa, however, it was quite good. Our favorite items on the menu: Schezuan beef and prawns in soy sauce and lemon.

Total cost for 8 of us was under 90,000 Tsh, so about $7 US per person.
