I found the food overly greasy and bland in the flavor department...the wine is free, but cheap...doesn't make up for the food...all said and done...I'll pass on this place.

I went to this restaurant last night, not knowing quite what to expect. I've been to Silk Road Palace numerous times, which is also an all you can drink white wine with dinner place. I was hoping that Pearls would be something like that. Pearls is a really nice place with a lovely ambience. It was really quiet and we got a table by the window right away. The service wasn't all that great, but the appetizers and entrees made up for it, along with the price (very reasonable for the amount of food you get). I must recommend the watercress shrimp dumplings (fried not steamed) as an appetizer. The orange chicken was magnificent. I had some of my friend's food too, which was also fantastic. The only negative thing about this place is they are not quite as free with their serving of wine as Silk Road Palace is... you have to ask for refills and the staff is kind of aloof and not really as attentive as they should be, even when the place is almost empty. Nonetheless, I would go back here with my boyfriend and other friends. I give it 4 stars.

The food at pearl's is greasy and poor quality. Even the wonton soup was not good. It is not worth the free table wine that you recieve.

the food was okay and so was the service. i was not impressed with the food, but i'm not complaining either. the best part was you get a free glass of wine with dinner.

This is the only really good Chinese place in my neighborhood. The mango rice and chicken with black beans and eggplant are both phenomenal. It's a few dollars more than the places that load their food up with msg and sugar, but only a few dollars.

I love this place! I have taken everyone I know there and they have all enjoyed it. The atmosphere is better than a lot of whole in the wall Chinese places, but it's not a place I would take a first date. Their Szechuan Dumplings are out of this world, love the Spring Rolls and my favortie entree is the Prawns with Young Ginger Root. Some items are not as good as you would expect like the General Ching's Chicken, don't order that expecting General Tso's. Their Peking Duck is very good, the Orage Chicken is also very good. The prices here are so reasonable and you get free wine with dinner (granted it's probably like Franzia or something, but it's FREE so who cares!). It's a great place to take a groupd of your friends. Service can be iffy if they are swamped, one of the male waiters is very curt, but if you are polite you will get what you need. Enjoy!
