I have been going to China Pavilion since I was a kid. The food is amazing and the owners are SO nice. Definitely the kind of place I like to do business with! My standard meal now is the crispy bean curd but I've honestly never had anything here that I didn't like.

China Pavilion has friendly staff, and good food. My friends and I dine there regularly. The scallion pancakes are delicious, and the veg spring rolls very good. I was happy with the Broccoli with Garlic Sauce; then I tried the crispy tofu with coconut curry sauce- even better! The Basil Sauce is wonderful too, so I get a side order... More

For the second time in a row service was very slow. Took a long time to get waited on and even longer to get our check. Food was good. Curry chicken was very good. Just can't score more than average because as timing was off.

The fresh cooked, excellent food at this small restaurant makes me wonder how any "buffets" can stay in business! Taking to the owner on our last visit, she told us she has been in business 20 years, we have been eating there 18. Consistent, fresh, delicious and reasonable Chines food, who could ask for more.

We frequent this restaurant often and is usually very good. Must have hit an off night. Sesame chicken was off a bit. Not as tender as usual, there were hardly any sesame seeds and the pieces were unusually large. Chicken with peanuts in a spicy sauce was a bit better. Service was unusually slow. We will return and I'm sure... More

Based on overall ratings for Chinese restaurants in the Syracuse area and noting they offer a lunch buffet on their website, I traveled to the far west side of Syracuse. The first surprise was the buffet was $8.25 rather than the $7.25 on their website. The buffet featured two standard soups and five entrees. There was lo mein and two... More

Went on a Tuesday evening. Busy, but the service was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was very nice. We've been to many Chinese restaurants nationally and We felt the twice cooked pork was among the best. The hot and sour soup was also very good. Our friends had a special, asparagus with beef, which they thought was very good.... More

After trying many Chinese Restaurants in Central NY and finally finding China Pavillion, we will never go anywhere else! The prices are a little higher than most restaurants but you get what you pay for! The quality is much better and they always have coupons in the newspaper. The staff is always very friendly and often refuse to let you... More
