I've been coming here for over 22 years now and I won't go for Chinese Food anywhere else. Nothing else measures up to Dragon Pearl. The staff is so friendly and the food is phenomenal. Prices are reasonable and great portions. If you want amazing Chinese food - GO HERE!

We've been frequenting other Chinese food restaurants for over a decade, but Dragon Pearl was our first regular establishment. When tourists joined us for the holidays, I figured it was time to revisit Dragon Pearl. The wraps are simply the best, the texture of the wrap, the filling and the sauce make for an excellent combo. The cashew chicken is... More

Ordered take-out from here and had terrible food all across the board. The dumplings were cold, the steamed rice was dry, and somehow they managed to make ginger beef and sweet and sour chicken taste the same. All of the food was bland, with a dollop of sauce in the corner. I would NEVER go here.

We ordered delivery over the weekend, and it was great food and quick delivery. We had spring rolls, crispy noodles with vegetables, shrimp with black bean sauce and chicken with vegetables and almonds. The food came within 30 minutes, was hot and tasty. We will definitely order takeout from here again.

I rarely have to write a poor review BUT the food was simply awful. Bland and tasteless. Almond chicken was like a rubber mass with no flavour. Shrimp in garlic sauce had no taste and fried rice was dry and again little flavour. Hot & sour soup should be a no-brainer but was below average even for Calgary. The delivery... More

Something must have happened to the cook. We have been going to this restaurant for years and bragged about how good their food was in taste and quantity. We ordered takeout last Sunday and were very disappointed in all the dishes we ordered. We will not go back again unfortunately

We've been going to Dragon Pearl for years now and have always enjoyed their wonderful food and great service! Our favourites (salt & pepper squid, sizzling chicken & Mongolian beef) are always consistently delicious and the staff are always friendly and helpful! We'll continue to drive across town for them!

I've always been a fan of the Dragon Pearl. This visit, I was disappointed. The service was good, but the restaurant is showing its age and desperately needs a facelift. I don't think anything has changed since I was last here 3 or 4 years ago. Our food was okay, but not as good as it was in the past.... More

We love Dragon Pearl. It's our go to Chinese takeaway place and has never disappointed us. Always hot, fresh and delicious. We are vegetarians and always have lots to choose from. A great family run restaurant that has been a mainstay in Inglewood for many years.
