Saturday visit was busy, but not overly crowded before noontime. Food was fresh, hot and varied. The dining room and bathrooms were clean. Staff smiling and friendly. Cashier gave us a menu for the future if we wanted takeout. We had been disappointed with our old standby in Dorchester, so we tried out China Pearl. Free parking right out front... More

China pearl is serving thousands of diners a day at two locations. Quincy and Woburn. The food is good but lacks the flavor and "juts made" freshness of a smaller dim sum place in Quincy I have reviewed. I always feel like a thing on a conveyor belt here. It's hard to relax. The food is pushed on you. Eat... More

Real, authentic, whatever word you want to use, this place is it. If you don't know anything about dim sum, or the subtle etiquette of dim sum dining, be sure to take a guide. If you go on the weekend - at any time of day - take your patience. Finding a parking spot is its own special challenge, then... More

One of the best!!! Great variety and prices. You can either go up to stations they have set up and pick out your own or order from the carts. Either way it was very fresh and tasted great.

Great location around Asia supermarket extra parking space behind the building but hard to find space during weekend. Good Cantonese dim sum with $1 tea order several well cooked delicious food cost each just $10. Great place for friends or family gathering and enjoy the meal.

It's great to have a place to eat dim sum without having to drive all the way to Boston and pray that there's parking. Albeit, the parking lot here is packed on weekends but there's always going to be empty slots along as you are willing to walk. Anyways, food here is legit Cantonese-style dim sum with carts and the... More

For people who live south of Boston but do not have easy access to the T and do not want to drive in (and find a parking space), this is the place for you. There is a large FREE parking lot outside the restaurant. The Dim Sum is served in heated trolleys circled around the dining area. You can see... More

Went for dim sum with family. Very busy place. Decor was typical asian restaurant style. Nothing to wow about. Food were great but not much selection for drinks. Seriously why would you not have soy bean milk if you are an Asian restaurant?! Just tap water, soda, tea and alcohol? Not very Asian🤔. Their egg tarts were great though.
