Reviews for Pearl Restaurant
by Leopoldo G.
4th January 2013
My family and I went there last Saturday for Lunch. We had heaps of yum cha as my family is a big eater and love chinese food. We’ve been going around wellington and tried several chinese restaurants and so far this is the best.
Prices are reasonable and serving sizes are good.
Will be definitely coming back and had been telling friends about this place. Actually, we are coming back tonight together with a visiting family from Christchurch.

A friend and I had yum cha at Pearl last week…. and I’ll definitely be going back.
Clean, nice surroundings, good selection, reasonable prices, pretty good service all round.
Only complaint, they didn’t have coke zero

I have been to this restaurant a number of times now, and the experience has been consistently excellent.
The food is served to a very high standard of quality and presentation. Service is not particularly formal – but more than adequate.
Prices are very good for what you get.
Best Chinese food in Petone, and in my opinion one of the best in the Wellington region.

Brilliant restaurant that needs more advertising. I discovered it by pure accident and I am so happy I did. Service was brilliant, the food was absolutely delicious and very generous portions too. The restaurant is clean and tidy. We had chicken wings, king prawns and spicy squid as a starter and stir fry noodles, fried rice with chicken, stir fry combo and beef orange (perfectly cooked). After dinner we got some fresh fruit and sweets which we didn’t order and it was a very nice touch. My kids always like to try something new and they will say if they don’t like something, well this is what they said “this place is the bestest”.

this place is fantastic, even my partner loves the place better than his restaurant, we frequent at least once a month and have taken my work colleagues there for lunch, awesome service, lovely people, the food is just fantastic!!!
The restaurant is always clean and tidy, and is very comfortable, highly recommend to anyone wanting a nice meal, yum cha or outing and their prices are affordable

Went here for yum cha with my partner and it one of the best yumchas we have ever had – and trust me, we know a great yum cha when we have one! (and also a bad yum char – e.g. Grand Century Chinese Restaurant in Tory St. – do not go there !!).. Anyway this place is fantastic, it was very busy but they managed to squeeze us in and gave us great service. We also saw our friends here who go to yum cha every weekend. Pearl Restaurant had a huge selection of delectable food which tasted amazing and the Jasmin tea was beautiful. Our only problem was that the duck had a lot of bone and fat, with not much meat. We complained and the manager came out and apologised and refunded us for it with no issues – this was very professional and we were very impressed. Will definitely be coming back here again, it was a wonderful experience and was the highlight of our weekend!!
One recommendation: Please put more napkins on the table – we always have to ask for extra!

Great Service! Always went there for Yum Char and by far their portions are bigger and tastier.
We went there for the first time for dinner last weekend and even though it was a bit expensive the food quality was good!
I highly recommend anyone to go back there, sure people are going to complain that the service was crap and they didn’t get their cutlery on time. Look at it this way no one is perfect..

Great place for Yum Char! People thought Good World was yum, this place has home made yum char! Nice pan fried dumplings, shrimp dumplings, custard tarts enough to make your mouth water. Only down side was the service was a bit slow but in the end the waitress got us a piece of paper to show what yum char dishes they had to for us to mark what we wanted then the food came out fast. Will be going here again as much as i can! They even had fried chicken wings!!!

I went to lunch with two other people, either of them had never eaten yum cha and I had heard a good review about this place. What a disappointment. The food was tasteless, the rice was so dry that I couldn’t eat it, my three choices I had made, were told ten minutes later, all off the menu. The staff attitude towards us was quite poor, seemed to be a problem for them to even get us some forks. I will never go back there again
