Huge portions for lunch menu. Hot & sour soup was excellent but entrees were run of the mill and quite salty. Service was prompt but not engaging. The waitress essentially took our orders and that was it. Restaurant was clean and the food was hot and filling. Wouldn't necessarily revisit.

Every time we visit Pagoda we leave very satisfied and pleased. They have the best mongolian beef and fried rice. Thank you for your great meals and service. We are always treated right!

Wonderful surprise. It looked like it was popular and the only decent looking restaurant in North Pole. Food is great and service excellent. Awesome food choices! You won't find a more interesting interior or better Chinese food anywhere.

Food is great and service excellent We ate here 2 times on our 10 day trip. Family restaurant atmosphere but can be a nice place for couples. Will eat here again when in town.

A friend in Fairbanks introduced me to this fabulous restaurant a few years ago and it is a MUST VISIT everytime I am in the area. Well worth the short drive from Fairbanks. Our two favorite dishes are the pagoda steak and the walnut shrimp, but ALL of their food is wonderful. You cannot go wrong eating here. Try it,... More

We hadn't eaten all day due to a variety of reasons. Arrived at 6:15pm and the place was packed, friendly staff, ordered the Chef's special for two. Tasted fabulous, we didn't do it justice as the portions were in our opinion massive, shame so much was wasted.
