“more effort ...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

The setting of the Pagoda Chinese Restaurant is lovely and the service quite good. Unfortunately we expected that the quality of the food would have been of a much higher standard. Not a lot of "taste" even for what would normally be quite spicey food. Would choose somewhere else to take a young family next time.

“Expensive to Eat In”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

We were staying in the motel next door and looked over the take away menu the decided to eat in. All meals were up to $10 to $15 more by eating in. The food was okay and the service a bit disorganised.

“Country town Chinese done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

The restaurant is comfortable and kid-friendly, and while the set menu is a bit pricey, they have very reasonable banquet options. Well worth a look.

“Best Chinese food I've had in Australia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2012 via mobile

The sizzling beef just melts in your mouth. Lemon chicken is thinly battered with a non-sticky lemon sauce on top. Sweet and sour pork is cut into perfect bite sized portions and not that hideous bright orange colour you get in most restaurants.

The price was good, the service ok (they had a sign up needing an experienced waiter, they could do with this extra person to be fair) and my table came away very satisfied after having an already great day in Atherton.
