Not the best I’ve ever eaten, but not horrible. Like everything in the area, it is pricey. They have added a ribeye to the menu which my niece said wasn’t bad. I had Sesame Chicken asking it to be spicy and enjoyed it. If I...More

Went in with really high expectations and was disappointed by both the quality and service. The food did fill my Chinese cravings and cost and arm and a leg. I heard their rib eye steak is great so I am willing to give them another...More

The decor in this restaurant is nice. They are very fast. Most everything you order you will have plenty to eat there and plenty to take home. All the dishes we ordered were very good.

Seems like Chinese dishes always have too much of that tasteless brown sauce masking the flavors of the meat and vegetables. This is NOT the case at Pagoda. Sauces were light, veggies were crisp, and the meat was tender. Highly recommend Mongolian Beef and Basil...More

I realize this has been on Diners, Drive ins and Dives but it is just good, not great. It is wayyy over priced for Chinese food. It's almost $20 for an entree, rice and an egg roll. Also I have noticed when the meat is...More
