Pearl Cafe

8416 N. Lindbergh Blvd. Florissant, MO 63031 | Florissant | 314-831-3701

Location Description:

From the owners of nearby Simply Thai comes another winning restaurant. The menu is lengthy but not overwhelmingly so, a greatest hits of Thai cuisine: soups, curries, stir fries, noodles and a catchall category of house specialties. Aficionados of Thai cuisine can choose their favorite dishes with confidence. Executive chef Scott Truong and his staff prepare each dish with care, paying close attention to the customary Thai balance of sweet, sour, hot and savory. The overall ambiance works equally well for either a quick lunch or a casual dinner date.
