Always delicious, beef chow fun is my favorite dish. Always perfect, Beef is tender and the noodles are never over cooked. Staff is friendly and always there if you need anything . A true Chinese restaurant not just a take out place

Hi Folks, The restaurant had a standard Chinese atmosphere to it. The waiter has polite and the menu promised a good evening of dining. The kitchen was quick too...then... the food came. The hot and sour soup had a slight burn smell to it (how do you burn soup?). The pork fried rice was fine. The teriyaki beef was tasteless.... More

Great service, all the Chinese classics, yet cooked the way you order it, great service, friendly staff and owners, and the best take-out in Town.

We used to come here all the time and it was very good. What happened? The food is just seasoned with large amounts of salty dog sauce, gross. They do not know how to cook simple dishes anymore. My beef and broccoli was disgusting. The beef was just a poor very fatty cut that felt vile in my mouth. No... More

This restaurant has always provided an excellent meal for over 20 years! We had two different shrimp dishes and spring rolls. They were excellent! We can still taste them! The atmosphere was romantic and quiet that made for a memorable dinner. The servers were also very good and not overbearing. We will be back soon!

If I were rating this as meeting or surpassing a hypothetical "what average Americans generally seem to expect from a strip mall / shopping center Chinese restaurant" standard, it would get a 5. It hits or exceeds all banal expectations: syrupy background music, complimentary hot tea and little crisps with sauces, attentive wait staff and typical menu. The decor is... More

We have dined at China Pavilion scores of times and are never disappointed. Whether for a quick snack (the pickled pork soup, ribs, noodles) or a mult-dish dinner (soft shell crab, anything with the sha cha sauce, fresh fish), China Pavilion takes individual care of its (loyal) customers - that's my experience and observation. The restaurant space and bar were... More

Reading Tripadvisor reviews for this restaurant suggested that there was something special to be found here. Wrong! I had the Subgum Wonton Soup which was just passable. The boneless barbecued spare ribs came in a sickeningly sweet sauce and the roast pork with Chinese vegetables was completely tasteless. Perhaps I had made the wrong choices when I selected my dinner.... More
