  • The East Side's Best Chinese Restaurant
    by  on 05/11/2011

    The pearl has been an east side staple for as long as I can remember. Nothing has changed: quality ingredients, simple, comfort food, that's not too heavy, not too salty, not too oily, and very flavorful. I've been a regular there for the past 15 some odd years, and have tried just about everything. I usually just get the pad thai with shrimp and chicken; it's my go to favorite meal. But if you want to try something different I also love the cursted pork in Hoisuin barbecue sauce- its an awesome summer dish. The portions are big enough to share (at dinner time) so I come with friends or family and we just order a couple dinner entrees and split a fried rice. They have the best wonton soup and the best shrimp fried rice in cleveland. And that's just a simple fact, Go to any other chinese restaurant in Cleveland, then compare their wonton soup and fried rice to the pearl's...and you will see that there really is no comparison.

    Fabulous ingredients and cooking - great presentation. Good value, too - not overpriced. I would renovate their dining room, because it's like stepping back into the 1980's...

  • Best kept secret in Cleveland and Shaker Heights

    We started going to the Pearl of the Orient restaurant when I was 7 years old. It was my parents' favorite restaurant. I remember when my father got older and more frail by the day, the owner Rose Wong would customize his favorite dishes due to the very restrictive diet he had to adhere to. I am 32 yrs old now and I frequent the Pearl. with my two children.The restaurant has maintained it's high standards in both quality of food and service. Best of all, the attention to detail and customer satisfaction is rare in today's restaurants industry.

  • Still a gem after all these years

    My sisters,brother,and I came back to Shaker Heights for a reunion and we wanted Chinese food for a change. We heard the Chinese restaurants in downtown Cleveland were much better than ones in the suburbs but it was too far to drive so we just stayed in Shaker Heights and dined at Pearl Of The Orient in the Van Aken Shopping Center. Our parents used to take us there a lot and I remember we used to have great times there. We were pleasantly surprised that the quality of food and service were as we remembered - great! Even after so many years. The menu changed to reflect more contemporary dishes. We had Chicken with Mango, Ma Po Tofu, Firecracker Beef, Crusted Prok with Hoisin Barbecue Sauce. My vegetarian brother asked if there was anything other than vegetables for vegetarians. The owner herself came over and told us she had in stock some vegetarian chicken for her mother's banquets and she would let us have some. She had the kitchen stir-fried the vegetarian chicken (made from tofu) with green beans in a garlic sauce. The dish was DELICIOUSLY! And it actually tasted like chicken. The portions were hugh and all our dinners were served on beautiful contemporary white platters. On our way out, I noticed they even bottled their own sauces. The packaging was colorful and eye catching. I did not have time to purchase any that evening but I understand they are available at Giant Eagle stores. The only criticism I have is their dessert selections were very limited, at least when we were there that evening. It's heartwarming to see a small business like Pearl still thrive and maintain their high standards after so many years.

  • Best Chinese on the East Side!

    We've made Pearl of the Orient a regular. Everything is fresh and prepared to perfection. We usually opt for take-out, but dining in is always a pleasure, too.
