Had lunch with a client/friend originally from Mainland China and a second friend. We had one Hot and Sour Soup, one Wonton Soup, Seafood with fried noodles, cut up duck, Chow Fun with shrimp and spicey pork. Excellent food and attentive waitstaff. One of two best Cantonese Style restaurants in Montgomery County!!

Had to find a place for dinner after our movie on Christmas Day, so we decided to check out East Pearl. It was busy but we were seated after about 15 minutes. Restaurant is in a strip mall on Rockville Pike and is nothing special inside. However, the menu is very large, and the food was tasty. The server wasn't... More

This is by far my favorite Chinese restaurant in the DC metro area. Consistently great food, friendly staff and management, and always busy with Asian customers -- which I think is a good sign of the authenticity of the food. Don't be put off by the modest exterior in a strip mall. You will be glad you tried it. Take... More

When we came for dinner, the restaurant was packed!! Always a good sign....I found all of the dishes quite tasty. I am not from the area, so I have no idea about other local options for Chinese food, but I would say that the food is right up there with some of the best that I have had.

I've only eaten here once, and the food was good, but not great. There are so many Chinese places to eat in the area that I feel are better, however East Pearl definitely has it's followers and those that feel it is the best in the area. It is very packed on the weekends and the parking can be terrible,... More

I ordered the General Tso's Chicken for a quick lunch. The service was fast and the dish was very good. I will be back with the family.

We stopped in two days prior to Thanksgiving, after a work project that lasted until 6 PM. The building is undergoing a facelift so there is scaffolding the entire front of the restaurant except for a ramp and chute to the front door. We were early for dinner because in earlier visits at a later hour the restaurant was a... More

After reading numerous positive reviews, we were stoked on a warm Sunday afternoon to eat here. First off, it's incredibly difficult to find. A paper sign under what looks like a burned out building is where you are headed. Once inside it looks like it did a year ago...lots of tables, 99% native Asian, which to the 4 of us... More

4 diners. 3 very happy. 1 "food was blah." Good spring rolls. Jumbo fried shrimp - plentiful and large. Overall: good eats. Noise level was horrendous. Nearly had to stand and wave to get server's attention.
