    Extremely slow service but very good food. Ordered the spicy jumbo shrimp special - it was very tasty and not that spicy. My friends ordered the short ribs over pad thai which was very good as well. Would return but hopefully would get a better/faster waiter.

    Pearl East has wonderful food. Always fresh and never greasy. Probably the best on long island. You must have a reservation for Fri or Sat night.

    Waiters performed their job without expending much effort. Questions were not fully answered. We ordered brown rice. Waiter brought white rice. We said we ordered brown. He said the brown rice was still cooking and would be ready in about 5 minutes. This sounded ridiculous at 7pm on a Friday night. We asked for the brown and immediately he brought the brown. He was clearly trying to get out of having to make the switch. This was an example of the lack of effort and service on the part of the wait staff. For an upscale Chinese restaurant, we were disappointed that the hot and sour soup and the ribs were no better than fair.

    We have been eating at Pearl East for many years beginning when they were located in Roslyn and were under the name Lily Pond. The food and service has always been excellent. The owner makes you feel as if you are a guest in her home. The wait staff are professional and courteous. Some of the dishes are found in every Asian restaurant but they have a unique taste at Pearl East as if you were trying them for the first time. We ordered shrimp with lobster sauce, Thai fried rice, and lemongrass chicken. Every bite was an epicurean sensation. They also have specialty dishes that are of the highest quality.

    Pleasantly surprised with my experience at Pearl East, the food was most memorable. Service was efficient, parking was readily available, ambience was nice as it was a subdued crown for a Friday night so the noise level was low. Made reservations about 2 hours in advance and was seated immediately upon arrival. Loved the food! The quality, quantity and taste was perfect. This is now my go to restaurant for Chinese food.

    Friendly environment and delicious food. Pearl East reminds me of the Traditional "Good Old Fashion" Chinese Restaurants which are very hard to find. The hosts are very friendly. The service is outstanding. If something isn't on the menu, they will make it for you. Pearl East has two dining rooms. You can even have private parties. I celebrated my birthday at Pearl East and we had 8 people and sat at a round table with a spinning rotating round table on top of our table. It was so easy sharing food. I would recommend that you make reservation, especially on weekends. This place is very popular!

    This is a nice restaurant for sit down dining. The food was nothing special. Lo Mein and Sesame Chicken weren't as good as the to go place down the street from my apartment in Great Neck.

    Even though we order Chinese food, plenty of people we see are ordering sushi. The food is always clean, top quality. We sub filet (beef medallion) for the regular beef. Worth the extra $$. The soups, apps all delicious. Service is always great for us even when extraordinarily busy. Love it here

    Been there several times before and food and service did not come up to past performances. Very noisy and service was rushed. It was Saturday night and they wanted to turn tables over. Worst thing was they wouldn't seat us until our friends came and waiting area is very uncomfortable and very crowded. Never had to wait for seating with other Open Table reservations either in NY or in Florida. Never wrote a negative review before.

    As usual the choices are endless and everything is great. It's best to avoid the overly busy, noisy weekend evenings . The owner is constantly observing how things are going. Have gone here for years and will return!

    Went on a Monday evening and had to order food for take-out. No Sushi on Monday and that left one of our party with nothing to eat. Was disappointed.

    Had a fabulous dinner at this gorgeous restaurant, served by a professional waitstaff. The presentation of the food sets the stage for an upscale dining experience. Upon entry you are greeted by a magnificent floral arrangement and seated in a uniquely decorated dining room. Class prevails. The menu selections are endless and the owner hostess will offer very special, off the menu items. For a great dining experience at fair prices, go to Pearl East.

    Food was delicious! The menu could use a makeover to categorize your typical Chinese dished if that's what you're looking for...little hard to notice mixed in with specialty dishes. Loved the skinny noodles they start you off with. Everything was excellent! After many years it was nice to find a regular restaurant for delicious Chinese food in a pleasant setting. Can't wait to go back!!

    Every dish we ordered was superb. Best hot and sour soup we ever tried, not the usual bland fare. The Mango Chicken was sublime, great flavors in a large portion of tender boneless chicken. Highly recommended restaurant, but the valet parking is crazy with all of the expensive cars being dropped off and all of the takeout pick ups!

    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 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.

    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!
