We dined in the Dragon Pearl this evening after coming across it on an impromptu visit to Nairn. Our meal was delicious!! As a mother of a 5 year old with severe allergies, we find it difficult to dine out.... the server who attended to us was extremely accommodating. Nothing was a hassle and he answered all my questions (... More

The service was awful. A new guy was being trained up, so some errors might be expected but, the trainer was making most of the errors. Very lacklustre service. Starters were ok. Mains came out and sat at waiter station while they tried to light the candles for the hot plate. More than 5 minutes later the hot plate was... More

I'd been having a hankering for chinese food, but never sure what to expect in another country and on my own. So, when my cousin wanted to go for Chinese, as his wife wasn't overly fond of it, it worked out well. Just a short walk from his place on a lovely mild evening. Very clean restaurant, that I could... More

We enjoyed our banquet - not the best Chinese we have ever had but good starters and crispy duck and good selection of mains. Watch out though - we had one of the set menus and options a little more spicy than we would have expected - all fine though. Easy to get in with no reservation, we were early... More

Food was tasty but loaded with soya sauce so we were so thirsty and had a sore head after! Very sharp service. Lovely polite Chinese girl was so efficient. Would recommend., ask them to omit the soya sauce though!

Ate here on a Tuesday evening, the place was empty when we arrived. Wide choice on the well-priced menu, although they were unable to serve alcohol as the only member of staff was under age! Starters arrived quickly and the soups were delicious. Mains were a bit slower and unfortunately one had to be returned - the chicken in satay... More
