Ok, I have been defending this restaurant despite all my friends have been telling me how awful they taste compare to other Dim Sum restaurant. I don't have high standard with food and with the proximity of where I live, I can get there in about 20 min, so I still go there for Dim Sum when I crave for... More

This is probably the best Dim Sum place north of Boston. They push the carts around which is loaded with nice eats of great variety, and you get to pick whatever dishes that you find interesting.

We went there for lunch on a weekday. The dim sum was good and hot. There were two carts. One cart had steamed foods and the other cart had baked and fried foods. While we had dim sum and ordered beef chow fun from the menu, I went to look at the buffet. The buffet looked tired and dried out.... More

It was Saturday morning. We were assigned a table promptly. The waitresses were very attentive; they cleared old dishes quickly and kept the teapots filled. There were sufficient number of Dim-Sum carts circulating; thus, the wait time was minimal. The restaurant served authentic Hong Kong style Dim-Sum. The taste was very good. It had sufficient varieties. All in all, we... More

I came here for dim sum several times and outside of Chinatown this is one of the best dim sum places I know of. I was surprised to see so many negative reviews for this restaurant and none of them seems to be about dim sum.

Our son had been raving about this dim sum (and he knows San Francisco's terrific ones), so when he wanted to take us for Mother's Day we did not hesitate. They said a 20 minute wait and it was twenty-five, which is more than honest in my book. Immediately we were struck by how friendly the staff was and when... More

This place kind of assaults your senses. Really dated, not very well kept, one person is friendly, while the next person is aloof. All that said, I needed something quick to take back to my hotel, and this served the purpose well. I had the Chicken Lo Mein, and it was surprisingly good. Hot and fresh, well done Noodles, chicken... More

Didn't care for this food. It was bland, lacked flavor and the staff seemed to not really care about insuring you come back.

**First, if Anyone in your group has a shellfish allergy do Not go here! I repeat - you will eat shellfish. The servers by and large do not speak English well.

Out shopping looking for lunch, saw China Pearl. Beautifully decorated inside. We were asked if we wanted dim sum or the buffet, we took the buffet. Obviously, they want to be a dim sum restaurant because the buffet was awful. We arrived at 12:30 and the entrees were so picked over there was barely one serving left. The appetizers had... More
