First time back since COVID and food and service are still top quality. Hot and sour soup, fried rice, short ribs and shrimp in lobster sauce all delicious.

We go to Pearl East as often as possible. The dining experience is equivalent to high end Asian restaurants on the upper east side of Manhattan! The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating while the owner Cathy is such a gracious lady. Never been disappointed and a bargain for the quality meal we always have.

This place consistently has great food. Try the mish mash dish which has a little of everything served on a sizzling platter. Be prepared for a Marx Bros. routine with reservations on a Sat. Night. This place does an incredible amount of dine in and takeout business on Sat. nights.

Everything was great. The crispy scallops with garlic sauce was out of this world. We were there for our 10 month anniversary (we met here)!

Pearl East is as good as any of the high end Chinese restaurants I have gone to in Manhattan. The shrimp spring rolls with grand marnier sauce are ever tastier than Phillipe or Mr Chow’s! They are extremely accommodating and anticipate your needs before you even know what you want. An exceptional meal consistently. The staff is friendly and efficient, and the owner is a lovely lady who greets guests and makes everyone feel welcome.

We had a problem with one of the dishes we ordered, and not only did they take it off the bill, they offered to custom make it to our taste the next time we visit. We had a wonderful evening, and their Peking duck is beyond delicious. Don’t miss a chance to visit and try it

Best Wonton Soup I've ever had! There ribs are delicious as well--always order the ribs.
My husband likes their whole lobster with scallions and black bean sauce--best over sticky rice.

Pearl East is consistently the best Asian restaurant I have been to. The tender, tasty pot stickers, rice paper shrimp spring roll (all jumbo shrimp), the best wonton soup I’ve ever eaten make it worth while to travel from my home in queens to Manhassett! The entrees are also outstanding! The lobster with ginger and scallions or the sliced white meat chicken with three chilis melts in your mouth with just the right amount of kick. Do not miss the Kani Salad or their really crispy, never greasy egg roll .

Waiter disregarded my requests as if I was beneath him
Food took very long
Had to beg for a water refill
Overall the only people that were waited on appropriately were the Chinese people coming in

There really isn't a better Chinese restaurant on LI and for straight out American Style Chinese food, possibly in NY.
Soup dumplings are delicious, hot and sour is perfect, Ying/Yang shrimp is outstanding...Mapo tofu, Mongolian Beef.....really amazing food.
