I can't tell you if all the food is great there but I have never been disappointed with the sweet and sour chicken nor have any guests that I've ever taken there been disappointed with the various beef dishes they ordered. The atmosphere and service is great. If you don't like something they happily replace it for you. We've celebrated... More

The food and ambience at Pagoda is excellent but the best part was the very attentive and friendly staff.

We were there as a group. They say is separately outside. It was a hot day and I would prefer air conditioning inside. Anyway, we were given choice of fish tilapia, chicken and/or appetizers only. Fish and chicken with appetizers was $20, only appetizers were $13. They started with appetizers- focaccia bread, blooming onion, falafel balls with humus and cole... More

Wקמt with family member for lunch. The menu - from first reading - was appetizing. What a hug disappointment ! The food was not fresh, not testy and I can be very rough and say that it was even disgusting at a level that it was uneatable. We called the manager of the restaurant to tell her what we think...

A wonderful menu, excellent service and a great view. The lemonade hit the spot on a hot day. This was our second time there and it did not disappoint either time.

Chicken portion huge, really a meal for 2 people (wound up wrapping over 1/2 of it to go), also very delicious. Meat tender, moist. Sauce so flavorful... More

The Pagoda is wonderfully situated right at the edge of the Kinneret. There is a choice of "indoor" or "outdoor" seating. Requesting to sit outside can put your table right up front to view the Kinneret and watch the boats as they pass by. Inside seating leaves you in a rather noisy (when tables are full) air conditioned environment. The... More

The Anglo-friendly waitstaff elevated our anniversary dining experience with cheerful smiles and perfect English. The sushi and eggroll appetisers were very well-prepared, with balanced flavor. The onion rings were creatively prepared and lacked the customary dripping grease. My wife's entrecote steak was grilled just the way she asked for it, and her marguerita aperitif was the perfect compliment to the... More
