Eating at the Red Pavillion Chinese Restaurant was a very good experience. The establishment is right on Payette Lake and while the lake was iced over and snow covered the view was a highlight of the experience. Our food was excellent, served promptly and piping hot.

Stopped by for a quick late night dinner. The place was dark..the bar and half the restaurant lights were off. The place was a bit outdated with it's brown booths and random Asian decor. Surprisingly, there were quote a few patrons. My guest and I walked into the restaurant waited 5 mins for someone to greet and seat us, followed... More

Chinese food reviews are hard to trust because there are many standard's depending on who you ask. We continue to eat here with each visit to McCall because they are the only one and we seem to need the novelty of Chinese food whenever we are visiting this great place. The food here is at best a C- if you... More

We were hosting sixteen people for dinner and decided to order from Red Pavilion. We had never eaten there, but are glad we tried it, even if it was take out. We went over to the restaurant and worked with the manager on our order. She was very helpful. We tried the egg rolls and several of the entrees. Our... More

The food sucks! If you have no need for quality food then this is your joint. The Chow Mein has nothing to do with Chinese food. Takes like canned food. This is more on the level of Vietnamese food. The service and cleanliness is way below standards. Amazing that a tourist town like McCall would call this a chineses restaurant.

We enjoyed our food, the server was very attentive and helpful. Nice to have a table outside near the lake! We were lucky enough to watch a beautiful sunset! It is true the restaurant inside and out needs to be updated and made over! The tables are well worn and they use folding chairs outside, but the food was really... More

The title says it all, but I'll add details. The outdoor dining area definitely needs to be updated. We were seated in a creepy little corner. Our server only added to my discomfort. He was sweeping the floor and wiping off other tables, then served food without having washed his hands. And he brought us a slice of lemon in... More

We visit McCall frequently. We picked the Red Pavilion for dinner on this trip because it serves Chinese food and there has always been a Chinese restaurant in this location, so it was easy to find. Not that McCall is all that big. The food was good and the portions very generous we certainly did not walk away hungry. The... More

The food is ok for Chinese food. Very Americanized with heavy sauces. Food is either under seasoned or extremely spicy so be specific about your order. The decor has not changed in 40 years. Very dirty walls, The bathroom is gross. Holes in the walls. And they keep most of the lights low or off to save $$ I think,... More
