Great Chinese Food on Payette Lake!

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... read 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

There are lots of great places to eat in McCall, and while visiting or the Winter Carnival, we picked the Red Pavilion because most places were packed. We got a table fairly quickly, but walked past 5 or 6 uncleared tables that sat empty. For three of us, we were crowded at a tiny table with no silverware. We thought... More

Stopped in on our way home from northern Montana. The decor is dated but the food was really good. Big portions, too! We sat on the back patio and watched people enjoying a sunny day on the lake.

The view of the lake was incredible! Food was okay, nothing to write home about, decor dated, but price was good for a large group.

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
