The food was exquisite, the dim sum verging on perfection. The atmosphere was vibrant and the service was attentive but discrete. I'm just looking for an excuse to go back.

I have eaten at Pearl Liang many times and it never disappoints. Friendly and efficient staff and service, pretty interesting menu selection and really tasty food. Good choice for a business meal or to go with friends or solo as well. Just go eat there!

Located just opposite Paddington train Station. Not very convenient location Quite a big restaurant There are Dim sum for lunch and of course a la carte to order The famous one being lobster noodle . Frankly the standard has dropped since I last visited . Not worth a special detour .,

All along nobody thought it worth even... More

Lovely family ambience . The food and service was superb, lots of family's with small children and babies . Only downside to Pearl Laing was the baby changing facilities …………which were non existent. When I asked where they were, the waitress informed me that there was a changing mat hanging up in the disabled toilet . When I asked her... More
