After reading the Cleveland Magazine with the Reader's voting the Pearl of the Orient Restaurant as the best Chinese Restaurant in Cleveland, I decide to go try it with my colleages from the office. It was a Thursday night we went and they were busy. We liked the new remodeled dining room, very chic and modern. A large piece of granite type of water fall faced the grand front entrance. The bar was long and extensive and filled with patrons. \r
We sat down in an open, bright and airy dining room, and the server came to check for drink pretty much right away. Our martinis are strong and flavorful. We shared some sushi, a Volcano roll, Dragon Roll and a California roll. It came in a timely fashion and they were fresh and tasty. We then ordered the Tasting menu for 6 and Wow is the word I would use to describe the dinner. The Wonton soup is probably the best I have had, and served hot which is the way most of us like it. The menu consist of Pearl combination platter appetizers, Almond Honey Chicken, Prawns and Cashews, Mongolian beef, Pearl vegetables, and House Fried Rice. All were out of this world and we even took some home. Service was friedly and price was right. $78.00 for dinner for 6, I think is reasonable.\r
Try it, you will like it.
Pros: Great food, friendly service, right price, escellent atmosphere.
