I found it very interesting. The quality was very fine and staff were active and polite. If you like Chinese food, it's one of the bests.

We were a walk in on a Friday night and the place was very busy, We stood for about 15 minutes before anyone even spoke to us. People who had booked were also having to wait and not being acknowledged. We were given a table at the bar but it was freezing. Another wait for a drink and the wait... More

I have eaten at Pearl Liang many times and it never disappoints. Friendly and efficient staff and service, pretty interesting menu selection and really tasty food. Good choice for a business meal or to go with friends or solo as well. Just go eat there!

The saving grace of this place is really the food but the rest could do a lot better. The restaurant is always too busy for staff to cope. There's long wait between dishes and when the food comes it's pretty much thrown onto the table without a world or smile. The bartender was the only friendly face. The restaurant was... More

Located just opposite Paddington train Station. Not very convenient location Quite a big restaurant There are Dim sum for lunch and of course a la carte to order The famous one being lobster noodle . Frankly the standard has dropped since I last visited . Not worth a special detour .,

Waited for 45 mins after starters and saw 6 tables served ahead of us and when we chased we were told "it's coming...". Then waited 10 more mins. and then we were told they misplaced the order!!! All along nobody thought it worth even... More

When I asked where they were, the waitress informed me that there was a changing mat hanging up in the disabled toilet . When I asked her... More

Tonight is the Chinese New Year so, not surprisingly, the restaurant was VERY busy. Reception was a bit casual but the service was good and the food very good. We had rather a long wait between our starters and our main course. The restaurant is spacious (unlike many Chinese restaurants,where you feel as if your neighbours are sitting at your... More

The food was extremely good but the lack of English made the service a bit slow with few mistakes on the table but all in all good restaurant (loved the decor)

Thank christina1401
