We first ate here around 20 years ago when we came to the area and have now started again to drop in regularly for a quick meal on our way home. The food here is really good and the quality and quantity can't be faulted. I'm not sure how many owners there have been over the years but they have... More

Second visit within 6 months. Plenty of off street parking. Little has changed. Food was good and reasonably priced. Combination fried rice and veges dishes could use some more ingredients. My pick of dishes would be the deep fried duck with chilli plum sauce and honey chicken. Tables were waited and staff were friendly. All major cards accepted. Would visit... More

We decided on chinese takeaway and Pagoda was the only place listed for Atherton. While the containers were full the flavour didn't match any chinese I have eaten. Even the Fried Rice was different. I had been to this restaurant a number of years ago and enjoyed the experience...but not this time.

We came three years ago under the previous owners. Unfortunately I must say that the food was as poor then as it is now. The chicken Schezuan tastes nothing like one I have had anywhere else- more like a bottle sauce. The special fried rice was bad- tasted only like steamed rice. Only good food was the chicken omelette I'm... More

Having eaten chinese food in many towns, in many states of Australia, The Pagoda still rates as the best I've ever had.

I ordered take away. The prawns were well cooked and service was fast and with a smile. There were plenty of printed menus available however an online menu would have been helpful. Well worth a visit if you are in the area and want a meal. Prices were reasonable

Meal was served quickly and service was mostly good. Took longer for the coffees than the meal. Sauce on both chicken and cashews and seafood special was similar and lacked some flavour. The prawns and squid were very undercooked and therefore spoiled the dish. They seemed more concerned with getting meals out too quickly. Vegetarian spring rolls were delicious and... More

Not the best Chinese that I have ever eaten. Visited with a 2 y/o and the play are was good. Please note that there is no change facilities however. positive was the friendly service from the man at the bar, the pineapple fritters and the quick food delivery.

Food was good, but not enough fried rice. Restaurant was full but service was quick & friendly. Music in background was too loud. Dessert was average .
