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

This place rocks! I've been going since I was a teenager and am never disappointed. So clean inside and decorated pretty. The service is fast and dedicated. You feel like the only guest. The food is fresh and authentic. Not greasy and have not had a bad experience. I recommend anything on the menu and will share photos soon. I... More

This is an excellent restaurant that has been there for so long, and we have been going for so many years, that I never thought to review it. It is a lovely family owned restaurant that is a regular for our family. The food is fresh and well prepared and the staff is always welcoming. I had my husband's last... More

We order food from China Pavilion quite often- once a month- and have never had a bad meal. The food is universally excellent. The staff is very friendly- and even though we are there only once a month -remember us by name.
