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.

Food was outstanding. Chicken pad Thai best I have ever eaten. Sushi rolls also delicious. Restaurant was completely filled but didn’t feel too crowded.

Pearl East is always delightful; the food selections are creative, enticing, and whatever we choose the food is always delicious. The ambience is lovely and the waiter is courteous and helpful with any questions we have about the menu. We highly recommend Pearl East.

Perhaps the best Chinese restaurant in the area. Compares to Chinese Restaurants in Little Neck and Flushing.

Food is always excellent. Wednesday night we invited visiting out of town friends to join us
for dinner. Everyone enjoyed the restaurant and especially owner/hostess Kathy.

I really like this restaurant. The food is very good overall. I have tried a few different things and have been to this restaurant a couple of times. It is slightly expensive but you usually get enough for more than one meal. It has a very nice ambiance and the wait staff are attentive except when it is very busy. They try! Overall, I definitely recommend it if you like Asian (particularly Chinese) food.

Went there for New Year’s Eve with friends. We were seated near the door. One of my friends was uncomfortably cold. Waiter was nasty. Food was mediocre. Service very slow. Food grossly over priced. $18 for five spareribs! Portions of dumplings very small. To say that this was a disappointment is an understatement!

For me this is the only Chinese restaurant to visit on the north shore. Excellent food, so many choices. Presented in a lovely setting and manner.

I don't like spicy foods and the chef always manages to tone down dishes to the level I like.

Portions are adequate for sharing; my wife and I share a couple of appetizers and one main and we're full.

We frequent released quite often but the other night everything was 100%. The Young Chow rice in a white sauce was absolutely delicious.
And as always our server Jay made our meal experience just perfect.

Excellent food as always. Service was more than acceptable and no wait time for reservation. Probably the best Chinese restaurant on Long Island, comparable to Shun Lee in Manhattan. That's why we use their take-out service weekly and dine in restaurant with friends on a regular basis.

We have dinned at his restaurant for many years and the food was always great
Yesterday the food was terrible. I had steamed seabass , it was overcooked and without any taste.
My husband had hot and sour soup which usualy was very good however yesterday it had no taste at all,
and the scalopes with garlic sauce were mushy and had no taste.
we will no go to this restaurant any time soon, which is unfortunate as it was one of our favorite restaurants.

Pearls is food consistently good and drinks are great. Entrees have gotten a little pricey but the quality of the food is outstanding. Great soup dumplings, spare ribs and egg rolls.
