“questionable exterior, but gave it a chance”
Review of Ocean Pearl

Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 May 2017

Stopped by this place late, and not much was open. The exterior made it appear to be a primary take out place, and we almost drove away. We chanced it, and got more food then we could imagine! Walked in about an hour before close, so there wasn't many people. Our server was friendly and very attentive. We missed that this was a "family style" place, and each ordered an entree combo. We got SOOOOOO much food we had leftovers for 2 days. If you walk in with eyes bigger than your stomach, trust me to say that you could split a combo meal. If you are ravenous after exploring all day, then it may be enough food. The price to food ration is definitely in favor of the customer.

The lunch buffet was very diversified in it's offerings, but if you don't get there early it's a big bust. Average food, nothing special.

This is an amazing gem in a small town. Great smelling restaurant. Not that unclean greasy hood smell like so many Chinese restaurants. We had the lunch buffet. There was a good variety and the food was fresh. It tasted wonderful. Not greasy and not too sweet. A huge bonus was the very clean washroom! I would definitely go again when in the area.

Just an overnight in Cortez and wanted Chinese within walking distance of hotel.
Waitress was terrific, teased husband about drivers license photo as he had a beer.
Egg rolls were fresh and crunchy. Won ton soup had napa cabbage in it, very tasty.
Mandarin beef was delicious, staying crunchy in the sauce.
Everyone asked if we were happy with the food.

This place always has great service, and consistently executed basic Ameri-Chinese fare. The portions are huge and it come out piping hot. The soups are delicious. Give it a try. The lunch combos are literally 5lbs of food. Enough to take half home for dinner.
