The service was good. The food is excellent.
The issue that always bothers us a lot is that the servers talk and laugh among
themselves in a very loud voice. A small inconvenience which can be readily corrected.

The food, as always, was wonderful. While the Peking Duck is outstanding, this time I went fire the crispy snapper,which was among the finest fish dishes I've ever had.

Kathy knows how to run a restaurant. How lucky are we who live in the area, that we don’t have to travel into Manhattan for a superior dining experience

There is a noodle dish that is not on the menu and completely fantastic but you have to ask
Barkeep made a surprisingly good sidecar
Very good value and hardworking patroness whose presence keeps her staff on their toes but they were fully booked that night and needed another waiter

Pearl East is an amazing dining experience that just always gets better every time we dine there. Every morsel is to be relished and savored. We can never decide on just one appetizer each and wind up ordering 5-6 appetizers for the two of us. We then share the succulent jumbo lobster or Tender white meat chicken and an order of fried rice (shrimp or vegetable). I look forward to going there every chance I get.

Pearl East is one the few Chinese restaurants left that has retained quality and service. There seem to be no more great Chinese restaurants like when I was a younger person. Thank god for Pearl East. Not only is the quality great, but they actually serve Gluten Free! My son is celiac and thought he would never enjoy Chinese again. Pearl East is a great family owned business that has not disappointed in the 15 years I have been dining with them.

such an authentic menu with the classics as well.
as important is the quality of the ingredients such as beef, fish always so tender and cooked to perfection.
Cathy, the owner watches everything so you're in good hands!

Food was excellent quality. Nice family owned and operated business. We went earlier this time which was great because the place gets backed and noisy.

We will definitely return for the shrimp with black bean sauce and sizzling rice soup.

Went here on a random date with my wife and loved it! The food was really good (we’re very basic when it comes to our taste - sesame chicken, lo mein and rice but it was VERY good). Great staff as well- very comfortable there.

Absolute best Asian food on Long Island. Cathy, the owner, is always present and making guests feel welcome and important and assuring the restaurant is running smoothly. On a scale of 1 to 10 the restaurant is a 20!

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.
