Fodor's Review

Vivid red Venetian plaster walls, a loungey vibe, and a widely varied menu of pan-Asian fare make Red Pearl Kitchen stand out among San Diego's other, more generic, Asian restaurants. Here, diners embark on a culinary journey with dishes like pineapple and Kobe beef satay, crab spring rolls, spicy meatballs, and steamed pork buns, all of which are designed for sharing. Pair them with sake and wine, or creative cocktails. It's a great for a group. On weekends the bar and lounge are dominated by exuberant twentysomethings—and the service can be spotty.
