Went last night and we were the only people dining in. We shared wontons and fried calamari for entrees and both were nice. For mains we had the sizzling Mongolian lamb and the birds nest with mixed meat and prawns along with combo fried rice. All were very nice as was the staff. Yes it is expensive compared to other...

Pearl Garden is an out quaint little restaurant. Lovely Asian setting and fantastic food. We tried many dishes with most being some of the best Chinese dishes we have ever tasted. The food was very fresh and full of flavor. The staff were lovely, they even turned the language barrier into a funny process. But if it is Chinese you... More

We visited Pearl Garden for dinner recently with our young family. They were very accommodating. The staff were all so friendly, the food was great and came out fairly quick we had heaps of left overs which they let us take home. Will definitely go back.

Management response:

We apologize for your missing meal. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes and we sincerely apologize for that. However, we attempted to fix up the situation on the night by offering to cook the meal straight away and getting it to you while other people at the table were still eating. This offer was refused. Instead your table of 6 demanded a... More

I have been meaning to try this little restaurant for ages and drive past it all the time. Decided to finally go for a family dinner and celebrate an early Fathers Day. Our booking was for 5 people at 6.30pm and the restaurant was probably 3/4's full. We decided to only order prawn crackers for entree because we didn't want... More

We often go to this little restaurant and find the wait staff excellent. The food is always good and the service is great. Not a big restaurant but value for money.

This is our favourite Chinese restaurant in Cairns. Have been going to this establishment for well over 20 years. Both dine in and take away meals are great. The atmosphere is good and is always well patronised. We will be back.

Maybe not fancy or artistically presented but great tasting Chinese food - as good as it gets. Sure, the waitress is a bit a absent-minded and the decore a bit aged but the food is wonderful.

This restaurant appears to be much better than what it actually is. After a promising start we were served food court quality food. Worst of all the scallops in our dish were cold. Did I say cold? I mean icy cold. It was explained to me that these were cooked. When asked if we were returning I explained that we... More
