This tranquil and spacious restaurant is a far cry from the hustle and bustle associated with its seafront location. The interior is arranged with the greatest attention to detail, utilising space without compromising the privacy of each impeccably presented table. The decor throughout is wonderfully authentic, creating a relaxing ambience in which to dine.

Upon arrival we were greeted by polite and efficient waiters sporting genuine smiles, and our gracious host, Mr. Yeung. The excellent service helped us focus on what to pick from the vast menu, which includes many dishes prepared with fresh local seafood. We opted for the waiter's recommended special set menu (£21.95 per person) and were not disappointed. The first course was a substantial selection of appetisers, including satay beef skewers and battered prawns, perfectly preceding a second course of crispy duck pancakes with salad and a delicious plum sauce. The main course consisted of crispy beef, a noodle nest filled with succulent prawns, chicken and vegetables, and special fried rice. We finished our meal with a banana fritter, lychees and a pot of Chinese tea; all included in the set menu. A unique dim sum menu is available too, offering 50 varieties served until 9pm every day, which is treasured by diners in the region.

The Pearl Dragon team can also design bespoke menus for special occasions. Rarely is a meal compiled with such talent and finesse - the year of the ox looks promising for this top-class restaurant and take away
