I do not know when they started to join the Eat All You Can trend but Pearl is still delicious and still has the eating at home ambience including the kids favorite..... the freezer with Melona ice cream sticks among others.

I treat one of my friend to this korean restaurant before. Very accommodating staff, nice ambiance. The dish garnishing were well presented. I was blown away with their unlimited side dishes! Worth it!

This review is for their Banilad, Mandaue City branch. What I noticed when I first came there is, the place is kinda hot. But I just ignored it after when we got our orders. The place was neat and the service crew are nice. I...like their ramyeon and kimbap. I also like their sides especially the salad. Prices were affordable and I enjoyed my meal. PS. It would be nice if they'll play kpop songs so that the customers can have more of the korean feels. Just a suggestion though.More

This review is for the branch in Mactan, Lapu Lapu City and doesnt reflect their other branches. When we ate there with my family early/mid 2016, we hoped it would be better than the other korean restaurants weve dined in but shocker. It turned out...to be the worst. As usual we ordered samgyeopsal , they gave us frickin chinese cabbages/pechay ( dirty hard ones with holes, mostly the bottom parts ) rather than the usual leaf lettuces. WHY!? When i glanced at the other tables with "korean" customers. they were eating the better lettuces. Mind you, we didnt look like people who cannot afford our meals. We chose to be seated outside because my father wasnt comfortable hearing the noises inside, We figured they tried to pull fast ones thinking we dont know anything. LOL fools. We were having lunch there after being told by a family friend, it was full of regrets. The pork servings were REALLY small compared to the other restaurants near the place. The side dishes were not tasty at all and relatively small. The staff were mostly trying to cater to foreign customers and it was pretty much an overall horrible experience. Ive decided to write this review after having dinner at a way better korean restaurant remembering that horrible experience. We never went there again and never regretted the decision. :DMore

Korean food is delicious and we all know it. And if you're one of the heavy food lovers, you'd be quite disappointed of their serving size. The food here is good but you'd be paying a lot for a good size of food - especially...their meats. Another good thing about this is that everything is provided to you - pitchers of water, glasses, side dishes to munch on while waiting. The waitresses seemed a little clueless at first, but they recovered from the questions thrown at them. Lol. The service when I went to Pearl that day was pretty good despite other feedback saying otherwise.More

This resto has been recommended by one of my friends and being at the center of the city is very much accessible and easy to go to. Although this place does not have airconditioning it is situated in a cozy area where you can relax...and people watch while waiting for you dish. They offer a lot of freebies that you can start eating while waiting for you order and the free soup is really good. Kimchi stew is as spicy as expected bibimpob can feed 2 people and beef bulgogi goes well with a serving of rice. Definitely worth every peso paid and their pricing is affordable.More

It was 1.30pm when we arrived & only 2 other tables were occupied, both in the middle of dining but no server attended to us though we stepped close to the counter. The menu says something like minimum of 2 orders but the waitress wanted...each of us to order a plate or a meal (sharing of shabu shabu or samgyupsal is not allowed, no matter how many grams of meat is ordered!). A big sign outside says "Do not turn on the grill, wait to be assisted"--well, you know it--you have to holler. Waitress placed all the ingredients on the table sans firing pen(range refused to light up without it) & disappeared inside the kitchen--no one was left outside. She had to search for the firing pen when we asked for it. For refills (only kimchi & sugared cabbage), you have to shout (really really call attention). you have to ask for everything--menu didn't include drinks & waitress didn't offer any options. There was a pitcher of water on the table but no cups. when i asked for a cup, she gave me 1 (there were 6 of us!). There were no plates either--maybe we're expected to dump all vegies & meat in 1 go on the grill & use those plates as our own. We asked for plates, and again was handed only 1. They expect 2 people to share the oily red soup despite the fact that we had 6 individual orders of samgyupsal. The bulgogi was extremely salty & had extenders--cabbages & strings of glass noodles!More

I love kimchi! I wont feel guilty eating all the salad, kimchi with 180g meat without the rice. Price is reasonable. The place is stuffy. They need to improve the ventilation.

Just a normal restaurant with not so flavorful Korean dishes. I wasn't too impressed plus the place is hot and no proper ventilation. Their staff are nice though. If you are on a budget, this isn't the right place for you.

Been here for a while now, its the first Korean restaurant that I've like, since it wasn't noisy and its very clean aside from the other Korean restaurant that I have visited. Their first branch was in Mandaue, the second was in the strip Capitol,...then here at Country Mall. The prices are all reasonable, very affordable. You can even buy their meat and their set of vegetable and enjoy it at home.More
