They have a good list of rice meals and their fried noodles are pretty amazing. I love it in here, the place looks so nice and comfy in so many ways.

The ambiance is great and the food is ok. It's a bit pricey but the service and place is awesome. For larger parties, they have a special room at no additional cost... definitely makes you feel like you're VIP!

I frequent the Red Pearl and I love the ambiance, appetizers, drinks, etc..What more could you ask for! Its just a really understated place with a very cool vibe. I have always enjoyed dining here, and often take out of town guests here. All my guests always rave about this place..especially the cocktails! Next time you are headed downtown, I would give this place a try and just enjoy the fun atmosphere without spending a downtown fortune.

The ambiance was really nice, the staff friendly. My drinks was always topped immediately. I had Panang Char Kuey Teow and Satay. Char Kuey Teow was really good but the satay was out of this world. I'm telling everyone about this place.

Pros: Food

Heard about this place on the radio from Erin @City Search. Hubby and I walked in on a Friday night without reservations. Were told the wait would be about 20 minutes - no problem we'll have a drink. No sooner did we browse the drink

So we go at 10:30pm and you would think we get the bogus lazy end of the night service but it was the absolute opposite. We had one of the best servers Joanna and she was informtive attentive and plesant. The food was amazing -- Get the

Pros: Late night service, Great food, service, and music

Cons: Little dark inside, parking may be tight on the street - lot close walking distance

We have been there many times and have always enjoyed the innovative food. Sometimes the service does slow down when the place is full. The fusion of different Asian tastes, spices and presentations has almost always satisfied.

Hip, warm, scene and vibe accompanies very tasty asian-fusion dishes. The appetizers (dim-sum) are great for sharing and very delicious, the main courses are like an elegant step-up from PF Changs. Sides of veggies were even more

Pros: decor, bar, fun for parties

I had a big group, maybe 15, but we had reservations and we still waited for over a half an hour for our table. The food was just okay, I was not that impressed. We had to ask for extra rice constantly, because they kept bringing out

Pros: Great food. Great atmosphere.

Cons: We got there as the dinner shift was starting so their was lots of server and management chatter.

I love PF Chang but if you want something a little more authentic and with a spicier kick then go to Red Pearl Kitchen. Good food and a great bar/lounge if you want to meet there for drinks after work or before you go out to the clubs.

Pros: Big Portions (I recommend sharing)

Cons: If you don't like spice then tell them to tone it down

.

When the waitperson tells you it is "family style", they mean it!! Portions are HUGE. Dined with two others, we ordered three entrees to share and had tons left over. I would suggest an appetizer or two and only a few entrees, depending
