I used to really enjoy Pearls and it's predecessor Broadway Cottage. BUT, now service is really terrible, the waiter actually looks away from the customers and the food is only adequate. I'm sad. I won't return.

I have been going to Pearls for many years now, even before they relocated and changed their name from Broadway Cottage. The food is great for the price and the service is always fast. The szechuan dumplings in hot oil are extremely tasty! Always a great idea for delivery or dining in.

Food was not so good. Egg roll was empty, instead of well-filled and plush. The dumplings were dry and sticky. The noodles were a little too salty for me. I would not order from here again.

I've ordered food from Pearls twice, and both times the food was extremely tasty, especially when the price was taken into consideration. The Won Tons. Oh, the won tons! The won ton wrappers are made from scratch, I think, at least they taste like they are. Recommend: Chow Fun.

It started out a few years ago really well with a Shanghai-styled menu. The delivery was fast and the food was great. Now it has deteriorated so much to the point that I am throwing away the menu so that I will never order from them again. First, the food is no longer edible sauce was watery (ever heard of corn starch? use some), and lacks flavor. Second, the portion has gotten progressively smaller and smaller. Once the delivered shanghai fried noodle was only half filled. Even the white rice that comes with my order was loosely packed. Come on, you are a Chinese restaurant, how much does rice and noodle cost you? It has been like this for the past year or so. I have given them too many chances already.......so do yourself a favor....do as I do, throw away the delivery menu.

I threw out the entire order of fried pork dumplings because of the dubious nature of the meat. The wontons in the wonton soup had virtually disintegrated. Lord knows how long they had been swimming in their rather tasteless broth. The chow fun was neither chow nor fun and the crispy prawns with walnuts was also a disappointment. Honestly, I'm not sure how this place stays in business.
