I like this restaurant because it is esthetically pleasing and the food is consistently very good. The serving trays are refreshed constantly, and servers are always around, filling water glasses, napkins, etc. Love the very high back chairs out of rehabilitated teak.

Food was meh, service wasn't great, the place was crowded and it was hard to have a conversation over the noise. We won't be back and would recommend you look elsewhere.

Amazing, eclectic atmosphere, complete with numerous buffet items from salad, shrimp, seaweed, ginger, soups, yam pancakes, sushi; main course & of course, your choice(s) of deserts... almond cookies, fruit, various pies, tortes, ice cream & don't forget the celebrated dragon pearl! The TUESDAY lunch deal for $12.99 is amazing!

The Dragon Pearl restaurant has taken on interesting decor. It's got some cool distinct seating areas -- bird cage, boats etc. The restaurant has a large selection of food, including Peking duck BUT I'd found the food to be average. You can get fresher food or better quality at a regular chinese restaurant. They do seem to have people on... More

We had a large family gathering here on a Sunday night. Weekend dinner is $32/person which I believe is the same as at the Mandarin, however the selection and quality here is so much better. Sunday nights have raw oysters on the half shell You can only get 2 at a time, but there is no limit on how many... More

Peking Duck is not what you'd expect at a buffet but you will find this and more at Dragon Pearl Buffet. Dozens of quality selections and I especially enjoyed the Black Pepper Chicken. Buffet is refreshed often and lots of eager staff are at hand. This place is massive and can handle multiple walk ins of large parties without missing... More

Great variety to choose from and the food is carefully prepared. Always packed and the staff are really nice. Would be nicer if the price is a bit lower. We had experience of party trays as well and everyone was really satisfied with what we paid for. Overall great experience and would recommend to friends too.

The selection, quality and freshness is beyond compare. There is so much to choose from you won't know where to begin. From Shrimp to Roast Beef to tons of Chinese dishes, you'll be in heaven. Dinner runs $25 to $32 depending on the day. Lunch is about $15. Seniors receive a 20% discount every day. About 85% of the customers... More
