Thai Pearl? More like Chinese Pearl

This is NOT Thai food it is Chinese food. Singapore noodles are from Singapore, not Thailand. The mixed veggies are the same as at the chinese take out place in the food court, and very bland. I thougth "thai" food was supposed to be spicy and flavourful. The spring roll tasted like an old fashioned egg roll and again little flavour and no spice. Very greasy. The soup was not even flavourful at all either and had one whole mushroom and some bean sprouts floating in it.

There is no pad thai or peanut sauce here .
Maybe I'll open a grilled cheese stand and call it gaga's cinnamon rolls as that would have as much significance to grilled cheese and as this Chinese place has to "Thai".

Good Portions and Quality

True enough, it's not necessarily 'Thai' - but you can't deny the quality of the food. I appreciate that the server takes the time to ensure you get a good helping of meat, and when you get veggies on the side, they take the time to give you a variety of vegetables including some mushrooms. The food is well prepared, flavorful, and clean. I recommend the spicy white fish, and mushroom beef. Also, their hot and sour soup is good as well.

Great filling meal...

If you're tired of the usual food court hamburger - you gotta try this.

I ordered the small two item plus noodle combo.... all just under $6.00
Orange Chicken - Not the gooey, gummy variety. It's always crisp and lightly covered with tangy sauce.
Salt and Pepper Filet - A spicy basa/bass type of fish filet, lightly fried
Curry Noodles aka Singapore street noodles.

Fantastic, quick, cheap and delicious. MSG? None!

The ladies are always very nice and the cook in the back is always replenishing the food due to the quick turnover.

Belly aching and wallet purging
By Ohmygod of burnaby and vancouver (1 Review)

I used to like take out from Thai Pearl at Brentwood mall, I swung by after work at least 3 times a week. Not anymore... food is never fresh and I'm getting way less. I order steamed rice + spicy chicken+ water= $10. Imagine this.... your starving after a long day of work, your excited to sit in front of the tv with you take out.... you open the box... surprise!!! you just paid $8 for plain steamed rice with onions, onions, celery and 2 slivers of chicken. I'm sure it would have be great for vegetarians:(
