The Pagoda and Oriental Garden is actually a small park open to the public where the oriental trees, plants, etc. are maintained by the VA Agricultural Society. The restaurant isn't really a restaurant, it's a bar with very scarce indoor and outdoor seating. That is probably why the menu is also limited. The place is nestled on the waterfront in-between gated condos and townhouses. It is also a block over from the USS Wisconsin attraction. The scenery is nice, the food was not excellent and I was disappointed by the trip because all the reviews I read ahead of time were high. We had to eat outside and our food and drinks were attacked by a unending assault of flies. If you think you're going to find some kind of major attraction by going here that is not what you're going to get. If you are a local or tourist who likes Asian influence this would be a nice stop for lunch. Their lunch menu is affordable but their dinner menu is much more costly and probably because the evening ambiance is supposed to be breath taking as the Pagoda is lit up with a color schematic. They have an area for outdoor dancing/live entertainment. There was a two person band there when we visited. It was nice to stumble across something we didn't know even existed before. Kind of made it feel almost like we did go somewhere far away from home even though we really didn't. Nice place but not how the other reviewers made it sound like. It probably isn't a family kind of outing either. It's more of a lunch with friends or romantic couple outing instead.
