TOP NOTCH

Ken the owner was super nice and the food was very fresh and delicious. It's not the typical Chinese food. Everything is clearly made fresh to order. Even the appetizers are hand made and not the usual frozen food. This place has been around for decades for a reason.

Always a warm welcome, clean, attentive staff, large menu (not canned "Chinese menu"), good food, fair prices, just a nice experience. This is my "go to" place when I want to eat out.

I've been to the China Pavilion Restaurant on numerous occasions over the years and often enjoyed myself, if not for outstanding food, then for the friendly wait staff, and very hospitable owner/manager and an appreciation for a sit-down Chinese restaurant of which there are few in the Syracuse area, with an exception for a few buffet-type locations. My recent visit... More

We visited from out of town; we used to come here when residing in Syracuse. Lunch menu was ample and cheap (most items $8.95). Service was excellent, food was excellent, atmosphere was comfortable (mostly padded benched with lots of privacy). I have eaten in many Chinese restaurants in Central NY. This is still one of the best! You will not... More

This has been my favorite sit-down Chinese for 30 years. I have enjoyed most of the items on the menu but their Prawns Amazing is just that! Wonderful service and friendly staff and owners are an added plus to their menu.

We were celebrating a significant family event and when we considered where we would feel most comfortable and welcome, as well as excellent food, there was no question that we would celebrate at China Pavilion. We have been regular customers through the years and have never been disappointed at the food or service. The food is always fresh, well presented... More

This Dim Sum is bad. It seriously looks and tastes like frozen Dim Sum that can be purchased at Walmart. Best Dim Sum I've had closest to Northern NY is in Ottawa, Canada.

I went there tonight for a bowl of hot and sour soup and as I was waiting I witnessed the waitress grab two water glasses with her bare hands by the lip of the glasses with her dirty hands. She then put ice in them, poured soda over them, then ,( and this was all done at the front counter... More
