Success! Thanks for posting your review of Red Pearl Kitchen. You’ve done the world some good today.

Perfect place to go with a gro...

Perfect place to go with a group downtown. Whenever people ask me for a cool, hip, fun restaurant I recommend Red Pearl Kitchen. The Asian-fusion food is delicious, the service is usually very good, and the drinks and ambiance are awesome. You can't go wrong here, whether it's with a group or on a date night.

Best Asian downtown- no comparison

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.

cool food+cool decore

Loved this place. We were just walking around and found it. Chicken soup is great, chicken with pepers in it was great and the deserts were all good. Stop here.

Great Drinks, Good service, Delicious 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 menu and order our drinks did the hostess approach us to let us know our table was ready. Quick! Got seated, had our drinks delivered to our table - SO GOOD - can't remember the nam... view more

Great Food, Beware of Wait

On the recommendation of 2 people, my wife and I decided to meet up with some friends at the Red Pearl on Saturday night. Figuring it'd be pretty busy, we made reservations for 8:45pm. We decided to get there a bit early, and wait in the bar area for our table. We were very disappointed at how long it took us to get seated. Tables kept getting seated before us, and when we confronted the hostess, they told us tha... view more

First timer, not impressed with the service!

So I waited in the bar area for 2 other friends, I sipped on a pretty good lychee martini and watched a cool movie. My friends roll in and I had to wait for about 10 min. for a 7pm reservation I made. no biggy I thought I finish my martini and be happy. When sitted we sat next to the mens bathroom, there was a sheer curtain separation fromthe toliet to the dining area. but still...watching men walk out adjusting thei... view more

Great Service at anytime!!

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 Salt & Pepper Shrimp -- delish!! We had the garlic shrimp noodle -- said to be spicy but when I ate it wasn't at all -- thumbs up for me!! Also the Cashew chicken very good as well... view more

Best or one of the top 5 Fusion Asian places in San Diego

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. Definitely a place for adventurous palettes. Try the chefs table and let the exec. chef decide what to feed you - you will leave quite happy !

Great ideas of fusion, nice lounge-y bar

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 impressive - like a favorite spot from a real ""International District."" Too loud music sometimes, but cool music nonetheless.

Okay food, waited a long time even with reservations

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 really small servings for the group--just fill up a big platter of rice for the whole table, even if you have to charge us for however many ""sides of rice"" it adds up to! Isn't that... view more
