Why is this place still here?

In a town full of foodies, why has this place lasted so long?? The food is average at best. And it sits on great real estate in a neighborhood that clearly wants better food options. Mystery.

I get take out from the China Pavilion about three or four times a month. I usually get their crispy peppercorn chicken. I've never seen it on any other menu. Sometimes it's a little greasy, but when it's right, it's great! They have a very good Pad Thai also.

The portions are big here, but not delicate as the best Chinese food can be. A large selection but it would not be our first choice for this type of food.

It's not great, it's not bad...it's exactly what you expect it would be in a little Chinese restaurant in a strip mall. We eat here every so often when we're too lazy to go any further than across the street.

If you want to take out, enjoy the convenience of delivery, or eat at the restaurant, you'll be satisfied by the choices and the preparation. There are plenty of Chinese places in this part of Bethesda and this has the most appeal and attraction.

The food is exactly what you would expect from a small suburban mall Chinese restaurant! Specifically, middle of the road, designed to please all, bland Chinese cuisine! All the items I ordered were designate "spicy" denoted by the chili pepper beside the item on the menu. As anticipated that designation was utterly laughable! As with many restaurants of this ilk,...

I discovered this restaurant by accident because my son was taking music lessons nearby, and it quickly became habit forming. The food is delicious, the serving sizes very generous, and the prices are modest. My two favorites are kung pao chicken with white meat, and pad thai. The restaurant is several miles from our home, but it's worth the extra... More

This is standard chinese food for the area. They are quick and the dumplings are delicious. The staff could be friendlier but I not there to talk. They have really improved the quality over the last couple of years. The prices are in line with comparable restraints.
