Pearl East -
Best Restaurants in Manhasset
We have food from Pearl East on my
job all the time and have been there on several occasions with my family. Kathy is a most gracious hostess/owner (?). Food is delicious, service is very good, portions are just right. I've been there on a Friday or Saturday evening; they had live entertainment which was a nice touch, too."

Today, it is very difficult to
find a really good Chinese restaurant. Most Chinese restaurants have gone Buffet. Some have gone fusion Asian where the menu has sushi, some Japanese (which is usually not good) Pearl East is indeed a PEARL"

Pearl East has by far he best
Chinese food on Long Island! A favorite for years, this Manhasset staple is bustling and has maintained its phenomenal food for over 20 years! While reservations are honored, be aware that you might still have a wait, but oh is it ever worth it! Come early for special dishes as they do (sadly) run out!"
Dined on 6/14/2014
Pearl East has a menu with good
variety, and the Chinese and Japanese dishes are well-prepared, not the sloppy version that some American Chinese restaurants offer. The ambience is especially noteworthy -- there is ample space between tables, pleasant lighting and decoration, and low noise levels. The service (whether due to the kitchen or the waiter) was less pleasing, although "good". In that regard, I will mention that the dishes were not really served simultaneously, there was a longer than expected delay, and when pouring water or serving other items the waiter reached in front of some members of our party of five, instead of coming around to the place of the person being served. Our waiter was friendly."

The food was good but the portions
were much smaller than usual. Noisy babies should be removed from the dining room! "

The food was delicious. The spare
ribs were melt off the bone great! Service was a little slow but then again it was Mother's Day and very busy. They gave us the wrong check but other than that, it was great!"

on Long Island. "

It was our first time and we were
pleasantly surprised!! The food was delicious and the service was great!! Will definitely be returning!!! The manager running the restaurant was very friendly and attentive as was the whole staff!! "
Dined on 4/17/2014
This is an extremely and
consistently good Chinese restaurant in many respects: the staff are very friendly, the service is excellent, and the food is "a notch above" the usual, in that the dishes are interesting, the ingredients are very fresh and each dish has a distinctive taste, even down to the simple soups. This was a very pleasurable dining experience."
Dined on 4/12/2014
REAL BEEF in the beef dishes.Best
egg rolls anywhere. Fried rice better than Chinatown. Shrimp dishes all taste wonderful. You must go!!!!"
Dined on 4/6/2014
the food and service has a high
standard but the crispy duck spring rolls were tasteless and the snapper thai style overcooked, not spicy but sweet."
Dined on 4/4/2014
We were seated for 10 minutes
before we were given menus. We got warm bottled beer. It took 1 hour to get our food and the crispy orange beef was pink in the middle and inedible. Both the waiter and the manager were clueless and had no explanation when we asked why it was taking so long. We weren't even offered a comp for our troubles. It wasn't worth the 15 miles we had to drive for such a disappointing experience."
Dined on 4/5/2014
One of the best Chinese
Restaurants in the area. Food is consistently good. Kathy is a great hostess and always on top of things. If you want to have a wonderful party I suggest you check out the party menu. We had a party there some years ago and people are still talking about the food."

Nice restaurant, great service and
good food. Wine list is a bit limited."
Dined on 3/29/2014
Stands out as the best Chinese
food on Long Island, hands down."
Dined on 3/29/2014
The food didn't disappoint;
however, the service did, and we weren't the only ones to voice our displeasure. It shouldn't take 20 minutes after guests are seated for water glasses to be filled, and only after literally flagging someone down to do it. Nor should it take so long for anyone in our area to get the attention of a waiter for service of any kind. The indifferent service makes us hesitant as first-time visitors to return if this is the type of service we can expect again. We came from Queens and can get Chinese much closer to home for less, but are willing to pay more for nice ambience and good food. But more staff is needed and those employed here desperately need to be better-trained in customer service skills!"
Dined on 3/22/2014
We have been to Pearl East many
times but have been seated in the back room only once. When we arrived there were tables available in the front but we were taken to a table in the back. There only two tables occupied both large parties -- at least 10 each. Consequently our service was awful. Don't let them seat you in the back!"
Dined on 3/16/2014
My family & I love everything
about this place. The ribs are to die 4 All the shrimp, chicken,& beef dishes are of the highest quality."
Dined on 3/16/2014
At 4pm it was packed! Frequent
diners and families packed this lively hot spot. With the grace of an orchestra leader, the owner visited tables, made food suggestions, even customized dishes to our taste. Her sushi bar is second to none! Beautifully presented. Fresh! Delicious! High kudos! Highly recommend. Make a reservation!"
Dined on 3/9/2014
This was my first visit and will
not be my last! We asked the owner to order and bring out an assortment of her best dishes. She even worked around a special request excluding onions in all. The cocktails were also top notch! My entire group cannot wait to go back!"
Dined on 3/8/2014
Excellent Chinese food. The
sizzling Rice soup was outstanding, the best we ever had. Typical Chinese Food restaurant ambience. Older crowd of patrons. Valet parking was very nice, especially on the Miracle Mile."
Dined on 3/1/2014
We often frequent this restaurant
and recommend it to others. The food and service is wonderful and the main dining area is lovely. Try to go on weekdays for dinner if you want to enjoy the experience. On Saturday night it is too crowded, extremely noisy and the wait can be an hour even with a reservation. If you are in the back room where a larger group is seated it is impossible to have a relaxed evening. Although apologies are offered, or even a gratis treat, we will never go back on a weekend night. It is a league above other LI Chinese restaurants so it would be great if something could be done to improve the crowd issue to be fair to all diners at certain times. We will still go back on quieter days"

The food presentation& taste is
even better than my last visit."

Food was very good-our first
time-sat in back room next to large birthday party-a little loud-they were finished about halfway through our meal-reservations a must-service OK they missed one item had to take it off bill-got the feeling they treat regulars (older crowd) very we'll."

Had a wonderful time. The Banquet
went on for over 3 hours. Food, food and more food. The dragon entertainment was so much fun."
Dined on 2/8/2014
When we got there the sign for
Pearl East was peeling... Mostly the "East" part. When we got inside, it was smaller than it appeared on its site. Two of our three menus had duck sauce on several pages so they stuck together. The waiter was decent. None too special. I had chosen this place Bc they advertised their commitment to using steak that's as good as any other in Manhasset. Well, my husband tried to order their $65 porterhouse only to find they did not have. The filet he got was chopped way too fine and was definitely over cooked. The live music. This really meant a man essentially singing karaoke adorned in the garb of a wedding singer, shiny lapel and all. Perhaps this is more of a neighborhood joint. I would not go back."

The food is always delicious at
Pearl East and the service is impeccable. It was a birthday and they brought out dessert with a candle on it. There is just a comfortable atmosphere every time you eat there."
