This is an amazing gem in a small town. Great smelling restaurant. Not that unclean greasy hood smell like so many Chinese restaurants. We had the lunch buffet. There was a good variety and the food was fresh. It tasted wonderful. Not greasy and not too sweet. A huge bonus was the very clean washroom! I would definitely go again... More

Just an overnight in Cortez and wanted Chinese within walking distance of hotel. Waitress was terrific, teased husband about drivers license photo as he had a beer. Egg rolls were fresh and crunchy. Won ton soup had napa cabbage in it, very tasty. Mandarin beef was delicious, staying crunchy in the sauce. Everyone asked if we were happy with the... More

This place always has great service, and consistently executed basic Ameri-Chinese fare. The portions are huge and it come out piping hot. The soups are delicious. Give it a try. The lunch combos are literally 5lbs of food. Enough to take half home for dinner.

This restaurant has no "atmosphere", it looks like the waiting hall of a railway station. The food was ok, but nothing special. They serve too much of everything.

Normally I avoid Chinese buffets like the plague, because I detest the typical over-Americanized treatment, a.k,a, way too salty, way too sweet, and greasy. Yet I had been noticing that Ocean Pearl always had customers. So into the unknown my husband and I stepped. To my delight, instead of the expected odor of infrequently-cleaned cooking vents, we were greeted by... More

Typical huge Chinese menu, but very tasty. Best Chinese in Cortez. Fast friendly service. We had Wonton soup, Moo Shoo pork and Almond Chicken. While a plain Jane in decor, food is way better. I'll come back!

Chinese restaurant recommended by lady at hotel. All a bit average really. Mix up with my order meant my friend was served about 10 mins before me so not great on the service front. The food was just okay when it did come.

Everyday buffet 11a-3p $7.95 buffet. All the food is delicious, they serve sushi on Wednesday and Thursday on the buffet. The potstickers are to die for.
