One of my friends recommended this place and it was delicious! I love Mediterranean food but was happy for this break from hummus, pita and meat. They have great combination platters. The sushi was very tasty.

When our group of 45 American tourists drove into the parking lot of The Pagoda, we were a little uncertain - a Chinese restaurant in Tiberius, Israel? We were here to experience the Holy Land, and were curious how Asian food would fit in. We did not need to be concerned - The Pagoda not only offered good food, but... More

Very good food and tasty; excellent view from the decks. but overpriced. The view and not too many good restaurants at Tiberias deserve the price.

There should be a rule for waiters, like the "first do no harm" for doctors, "first tell people what is not on the menu." When it turned out our first and second choices were not available (Wednesday, 4 pm), I wanted to leave, we should have left. But the restaurant is right on the water and my husband, who only...

Had diner during our Trip to Tiberias. The food was Really good, highly recommend the black pepper beef. Just 3 Points, because staff was friendly but had to wait a long time for clearing plates and more Drinks. And there were just 5 tables to serv.

Although you can order from the Decks menu at the Pagoda, I recommend against it. Friends have been disappointed, and around 1/3 of the Decks reviews on TripAdvisor are negative. Sticking to the Pagoda menu, my wife and I had a great meal. We started out with a large carafe of soup for two (I recommend anything but the Wonton... More

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

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...
