Interesting meal

We lunched here with a tour group and all had the deep fried fish. I can say that it was a rather unque experience. This restaurant is on the lake and one can see schools of fish swimming by. The fish was good, not outstanding but as I said a unique dining experience while in Israel. The staff was... read more

Although it can be 100 degrees outside, if you eat at the Pagoda, you must try the soups! They serve them in charcoal pots - this is the way to order them, not as a single portion. Their wonton soup is the best I've ever had. The tom yam (hot and sour) soup is also a must. It is made... More

When we arrived the staff ignored us for 5 min until we asked if we could sit ourselves. The cutlery on our table wasn't very clean. The food was ok but you had to order sides (rice) with the main. I would not return

This is a very good oriental food and service , you can site in sort of a terrace without air condition or inside. The ambiance is very good and the service too if you like something to be prepared without an ingredient they will ask the chef and help you.

Nice view and pretty. Food is not that good. Service is polite but not good. I wish we ate at McDonalds rather than at Pagoda

Excellent and varied Chinese and Asian cuisine accompanied by superior service, reasonable prices and a view "to die for" make a visit to the Pagoda the best way to end you day in the Tiberias area.

While sitting by the Sea of Galilee, we dined on delicious and varied fair. I enjoyed a surprisingly good Chinese noodles/vegetable dish. My wife loved her Salad Nicoise. It was a delight.

This is a Chinese restaurant in the hills of Israel where Jesus walked. In a way it is a novelty restaurant: a change from the usual Israeli salads and grilled meats. Found the egg rolls stuffed with cabbage, the cabbage salad, the cabbage garnishes, etc a bit much. The coconut and sweet and sour soups were good the rest was... More

The restaurant style is Chinese but it really is a mixture of several styles. They have a long list of Sushi (quite good), soups, appetizers and main dishes. They also serve grilled fish and meats from an adjacent restaurants called Decks. Service is attentive. The restaurant is big and beautiful. The best dish we had was crispy duck in lemon.... More
