The first time i went to china pearl was two years back as a newly wed when my sisters took us for dinner. My sister’s family used to visit china pearl for dinner very often and i wanted to know what made them go back again and again.
The ambiance is good. Dim lights, Chinese setup. I personally feel the hotel has no sense of privacy. The service is good. The staff is welcoming, warm and friendly.
Talking about food, the first time we went there, my bro in law ordered the food. Everything was really good. The starters especially were amazing. The veggies were nicely spiced and crisp. The non veg starters also were a hit.
Since I had such a nice experience the first time, i forced my husband to go back last week. We inquired about the menu and ordered spicey stuff which was Thai fried chicken and dragon chicken chopsuey. The food fell flat. It tasted bad. As in they both were sweet. The Thai fried chicken was not only sweet but lacked flavor. The only thing i liked about chopsuey was the noodles were nice and crisp, but the sauce again was sweet contrary to the flavor of dragon chopsuey.
A meal for two costed us 600bucks. Just those two things and a coke. Everything in the menu is in the 200’s.. soups are in the 100’s..
All in all considering the recent dinner, i think china pearl is a little below average. But i have had a good experience couple of years back so i think they can do way way better to improve the quality of the food.
If i had to rate it on a scale of five i’d probably give it a two..
So where have you guys been recently???
