Very difficult to score this in all honesty, but honesty is what it is all about, so hence my review. My wife and I dined here on the Buffet style menu, had I reviewed this as soon as I got home it would have received a very good review, as the food we both ate was indeed very nice, the... More

What a place! It's decor is authentic and tasteful. The service is excellent and the food is scrummy! We opted for the all you can eat buffet and it was well worth the money! they also do takeaway! X

I've been to this place occasionally and this time I discovered they had changed the menu. The sad thing about this is; they have now restricted customers from ordering something from the starters menu when you've ordered the main. We went mid week and didn't expect it to be busy, service was slow, especially the drinks. Go to Oriental Palace... More

While visiting Kings Lynn for the weekend we chose this Restaurant because of the reviews. We weren't disappointed as it was a superb evening. I prefer this type of buffet rather than the one where the food is just kept hot in containers and not always what you really want. It was a choice of as many starters as you... More

We came here for a special 70 th Birthday and I must admit i am very disappointed with everything about our meal. Service was dreadful, food was a bit overcooked, in fact I cannot think of anything positive to say. Think there are just not enough Staff for the size of the restaurant and the staff really need to go... More

I paid my first visit to Pearl River the other week with a large group of friends. Was made to feel very welcome and shown to our seats. Drinks were brought quickly, food was very good and hot and we all ate at the same time although we were spread out over 2 tables.

Went for my sons 21st Birthday meal.. his choice as he loves the Smokey Chicken starter. Have been before so knew roughly what to expect. The Restaurant was packed but this didn't detract from the excellent service and evening which we had. No need to elaborate on this too much.. so Great Food, (My son especially liked the starter soup),... More

Didn't consider this restaurant for a while as the signs outside only advertise the buffet. We decided to go after seeing there was an a la carte menu too including dishes not usually available at 'typical' chinese restaurant. All our dishes were above average especially the fresh tasting spring rolls, the soft shell crab and cantonese duck with a lovely... More
