Best Chinese food on Long Island
Must try the Ribs probably the best in New York.
Ask the Owner Cathy to recommend dishes you won’t be disappointed.

As usual the food was great. We went to celebrate my birthday, the one thing I did not like was we felt rushed as if they just wanted us out so they could turn the table. There was a group of 7 of us and we were trying to celebrate my birthday and have a nice dinner. They kept coming over to as if we were done. They brought the check over and didn't even ask if we wanted dessert, which we did. When we told the waiter we wanted dessert it was like he was annoyed. The whole experience ruined my birthday dinner.

I've eaten at many Chinese restaurants over the decades, but Pearl East has the best food, bar none. The quality of the food is exceptional. For example, their shrimp dumpling appetizer tastes so fresh that you'd think they just caught the fish. Main dishes are equally excellent and the service is top notch. Most highly recommended!

My husband and I had a lovely time in this restaurant.
We came in time for lunch, after our movie.
The ambience was serene, delightfully tranquil.
We could have a nice conversation.
The waiter was polite, and answered all of our questions.
I enjoyed the steamed vegetable dumplings( dim sum), and vegetable lo mein.
My husband liked his dish of eggplant in garlic sauce.
We would definitely recommend this beautiful restaurant , and look forward to returning.

We booked our reservation in ample time and were placed in the “back room”. The table was next to the bus station, the noise level was unbearable and the management was totally uninterested in helping to solve the issue. We were celebrating 2birthdYs and this was a special occasion. The food was over salted and not what we have experienced in previous dining there. This turned out to be a very disappointing dinner. I will never go there again and be placed in that back room.

The décor is very pretty and the presentation of the food makes you want to dig in and taste each and every dish that you have ordered!
I would recommend Pearl East to all those who enjoy excellent Chinese and Sushi in a welcoming and clean environment!

Excellent food w/ exception of one dish which was promptly comped. Would return for the food quality but the service here is lacking. Special occasion noted on the reservation was not acknowledged. Server did not welcome us or introduce himself nor come and check on diners in the middle of the meal and we had to hunt him down for basic things like rice. I've been to China and this type of service is consistent with what you expect there but here I do want a bit more especially for a special occasion meal.

Like I said the food while it is mostly Americanized Chinese food is fresh and creatively prepared. As long as you adjust your service expectations you will be fine eating here.
