I have been eating lunch here at least twice a month for years. Two years ago, new owners changed the name from Panda to Red Pavilion. It's a family run business. Service is always very good/excellent. The lunch specials are reasonably priced with several choices. Yesterday, I noticed a new daily $5.95 special; it was rice with sweet and sour... More

We love this place! We eat here regularly on our ski trips to McCall and it is always hot and delicious. You would think that this being the only option for Chinese in a small town, that it would be bad, but quite the opposite. Large portion sizes, decent prices, and friendly service. I am rarely satisfied when trying Chinese... More

The only reason we came here was because the rest of the town was packed with winter carnival folks and this was the only place with seating. I wasn't really impressed. The food was good, but nothing great. The service was ok and the place is outdated. My friend ordered spicy chicken but it wasn't spicy. Probably wouldn't go out... More

After spending a fun filled day at Winter Carnival, some friends and I decided to take our families to Red Pavilion for dinner. The restaurant was busy, but there were a few empty booths and tables, and with only two people in front of us, this looked like a perfect place to satisfy our hunger. Shockingly, we were wrong! With... More

Ok, this is the only Chinese food in McCall, but you will not be disappointed. Big portions, fast & attentive service, good prices. Summertime offers patio seating. Inside the restaurant is dated and needs an overhaul, but the views of the lake are fantastic and the food is great. We eat here several times a month.

McCall offers a nice variety of eateries, but you don't expect to find decent Asian food in the mountains of Central Idaho. The shortcomings are easier to overlook when there's not another Chinese restaurant within a two hour drive, but we've enjoyed a good dinner and excellent lunch at Red Pavilion. The honey almond shrimp, mandarin chicken, braised tofu and... More

You'd expect with literally no competition that they'd be bad. Instead, they are decent with typical Chinese takeout fare and cooking. Service is spotty but if you want Chinese in McCall, go here or forget Chinese food in McCall.

We chose this restaurant based on the high reviews. We agree food was very good - we'll give it a 4 star. However, from the moment we stepped in the restaurant, it was dirty. The carpet was filthy, the windows to view the beautiful lake were extremely dirty and looked like they hadn't been cleaned for weeks, maybe months; our... More

Fourth of July night on the patio.. maybe 30 guests total in the place. But I think they must have found the hodge podge of service staff off the street. Servers that did not know what tables they were going to and asked us if they saw what table they were just at as they juggled 4 drinks in hand,... More
