Everything about this restaurant is Chinese: chairs, walls, art, costumes, etc. Which is to say, that it is rather bland. So is the food. I'm sure there are much better Chinese restaurants in the city, in the neighborhood. Very average.

Great location, reasonable prices and attractive ambience don't offset awful food. This was a favorite restaurant, but a recent visit was a great disappointment.

Worst experience in a restaurant ever, kitchen staff sounded as if they were murdering each other whilst we were trying to have a relaxing meal with our two children, the staff and management were very unapologetic and did not appear to understand our concern whatsoever,...More

The service is brusque and efficient, the décor is plain, but Tang Pavilion scores high on food. The extensive menu features all the Chinese classics, plus a number of Shanghai specialties. We particularly enjoyed the whole steamed fish and the gluten puffs. The night we...More

We had delicious meals of chicken, beef, and shrimp which were all very flavorful. Only problem of pressure from a waiter to hurry up and order since the kitchen is closing in 10 min. We felt rushed
