    Overall:

    We had not been to the Oriental Pearl restaurant for sometime and decided to try their early bird menu before the match. It doesn't feel like a Chinese restaurant anymore, meals were plated up which made it difficult to share. Food still good but restaurant's got an identity crisis by attracting drinkers at the weekend seems to be to the detriment of the restaurant. We won't be hurrying back.

    Service was found to be above average. The food was a little on the cool side. Not really warranting the prices charged.

    We ate here with friends after a Forest match and like always very busy downstairs in the bar. Also upstairs bigger restaurant than I expected. The food came very quickly but I dont know if I would eat here again. It was OK but nothing special.
