This is an unassuming restaurant from the outside but a little gem on the inside where it counts.

I ate with a party of 9 and we all had delicious food - large portions and served quickly. The menu is extensive and offers the usual range of set meals and individual choices. The prices are excellent.

I had spring rolls and crispy duck. Both courses were delicious and I will probably choose the same again or have them as a takeaway if I fancy it some night when I don't fancy cooking.

The only drawback to the evening was that some of the party had to go to the bar when they first arrived to get their own drinks rather than being able to charge them to their meal account. Apart from that the service was excellent and I highly recommend this Restaurant and will certainly go back there again.

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback - we appreciate it.

We suggested getting drinks at the bar as this would make it easier for you when the bill comes as you wanted separate bills. I hope that makes sense. We do normally operate table service but we thought on this occasion it would be easier for you.

Looking forward to having you all back.

Thanks,
Dragon Pearl Chinese Restaurant.

We did not book, but myself and daughter were offered a table immediately. Free prawn crackers, tasty soup and ample portions - we ate far more than is healthy! All ingredients were fresh, and served with attentiveness. Slightly too salty, by I tend to expect that in a Chinese restaurant. However, a tasty meal enjoyed by both of us.

I took my two daughters for lunch - 4 courses for £6.50! Amazing value for money, and the food - heavenly!!
Quite a busy lunchtime ( and at that price I'm not surprised) and one waitress managed to serve everyone. We will certainly be back!

We Had dinner at this restaurant last Saturday. Food was great and the service was attentive. Price for all you can eat buffet was slightly more expensive that I pay at home in Wales, but still good value for money.
