We tried the new Asian Pearl restaurant and overall had a good experience. The food is really good with only a few exceptions. Egg rolls were just okay, but the dumplings were great. Portions are huge and the presentation is spectacular. Very fresh vegetables and a nice variety in the dishes. The restaurant itself for being in a strip mall setting is beautiful inside. Service was okay, just had an extremely nervous young man waiting on us. Would like to see brown rice on the menu and the kids always like the fried wontons for soup, but other than that a nice menu selection. Spicy items were the right amount of spicy hot. Overall would definitely return - probably for carry out though.
I love this place! The price is right although the service is fast the staff wasn't very friendly. :-( It may have been due to being so busy and the silverware was out along with the ice. I asked nicely to get the silverware refilled and the person acted like I was disturbing her. How else were we suppose to eat lol. Aside from that it was good. I know the Wichita, KS location is wonderful with slightly larger portions offered. All in all the food was good though. Will give it another shot. Just hope the staff I friendlier next time around.
So far I have not been disappointed in the food at 119th Street Diner. Their specialty is Eggs Benedict. The traditional is my favorite, and the kids LOVE the flavored pancakes. The adult flavored coffees are a big hit with me too. My husband and I go there for date night quite often. They have great nightly specials on entrees and adult beverages. The staff is friendly and helpful in all ways. I would highly recommend this restaurant for your dining pleasure.
