“Hovering staff don't leave u alone”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

The staff are annoying, u can't even put ur fork down before they're trying to steal ur plate. U feel like u have to eat fast because they continually try and steel plates from u when u haven't even finished, the staff are a nuisance. They all stand there in a line hovering over u staring at u. Horrible atmosphere!!

“Never been disappointed”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Have been to China Pearl on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent, the wait staff are very professional and helpful. The food is reasonably priced. I would certainly recommend. It is a very popular restaurant on weekends so always best to book.

“Very Good Chinese Food”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

This restaurant is always popular, so best to book in advance if you have a few in your party.
Dined there last Saturday night, 16 of us, and everyone enjoyed the food very much. Some tried to buy a glass of wine but all they had was a Reisling, which no-one liked. However they do have a good selection of bottled wine. Not a great deal of atmosphere, missing some background music or some kind of entertainment.

“Great food but awful fried rice”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

We got takeaway and the Mongolian beef and honey chicken was very tasty but the fried rice was awful.. Very dry and bland, worst we've ever had. The kids wouldn't even eat it. The rest was nice though.

“Excellent meal, good service.”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Party of 7 adults, arriving without reservation, seated promptly.
Drink orders were taken while we perused the menu.
Meals arrived in good time,were fresh & hot.
Follow-up service for drinks & desserts was prompt & courteous, with staff being friendly and willing to both take, and share, a joke.
Special consideration was shown to an elderly member of our party, which was especially appreciated.
We considered the pricing to be quite reasonable
We are all rather particular about restaurants, four of us having Hospitality backgrounds,
and we are all fond of Chinese food, so are a hard bunch to satisfy.
China Pearl scores highly in all departments as far as I am concerned, & will be a definite "must" next time I am in town.
