We had our reservations ready and
arrived ~10 minutes early. Finding no parking, I walked in to claim our reservation while my wife parked the car. Minutes past and she returned noting that she found a reserved spot for McD's. Not wanting a tow I moved the car and due to a hockey game couldn't find a spot. We had to leave. Food looked and smelled great, the staff was friendly if over worked. Forgettable ambiance. Probably not the best for a more intimate date but perfect for anything else. I want to come back when its not a major holiday AND a hockey night. Our bad for not planning, but I figure a warning will help others. Gave 3's in food cat since I can't say either way. Smelled good."

I had heard Pagoda's Dim Sum was
good and decided to try it one afternoon. Unfortunately, I was not impressed by their dim sum. The selection was limited and the food was mediocre. It is acceptable for people who want the typical American Chinese flavored food aka deep fried foods and dumplings, but if you're looking for an authentic taste for Cantonese Dim Sum I would not recommend Pagoda. The vibe of the restaurant wasn't bad though. The restaurant noise level wasn't too loud and I felt comfortable during my dining experience."

language barrier with wait staff.
food was good, but service was very slow. had to ask several times to get a glass of wine and egg rolls. worth visiting if you have patience."

Nicely prepared Asian food,
extensive, fascinating menu. Good service. Large, open dining room with decent ambience. Beer selections could be improved."

Pagoda offers the real dim sum
experience in the heart of the university district. Friendly service, great prices, and a huge selection of dim sum choices makes this a place that we'll be coming back to on a regular basis."

We had a great meal including
excellent special items like sticky rice in lotus leaf, broccoli rabe, and beef crystal noodle as well as selections from the three different carts. They also offer congee with various toppings during dim sum."

We were happy to find an Asian
restaurant open on Christmas Day. The food was very good, but there were some problems. The waiter was couteous, but not very knowledgeable about the food. He didn't know what vegetables were in the vegetable egg rolls, which were actually very good. There was a holiday party in the adjoining party room that included Chinese karaoke. The singers were very enthusiastic and loud and did not sing well. It was so loud that at times we could not hear each other talk, which detracted from an otherwise fairly good meal."

The restaurant ambiance and
service were spectacular but the food was just ok. The dinner prices are very inexpensive for not a lot of food choices. For similar pricing, I'd go to Fogo de Chau where they have twice as much variety and choice in food items."

Regardless of what region of China
you want to sample, there is something at Pagoda for everyone. My wife and I split a dish of Shrimp and Lobster Sauce which was OK, but our highlight was a steaming hot caldron of Sichuan Broth Hot Pot with beef, pea tips, chinese broccoli, and tofu. This is a dish we thought we would never have again when we had it in Guilin back in China on vacation, but low and behold Pagoda came through with a winner in this menu option. The option for the hot pot buffet is similar to other Korean barbecue restaurants out on the coasts, where they bring you fresh plates of ingredients to cook on your table top until you say stop. Their menu has other very authentic items, a far cry from your suburban chinese joint"

I love this place! Moderate
prices, great food, good wines, friendly wait staff. Lots of menu items to choose from. Wait staff great about making recommendations based on your preferences. Located in the bustling U of M Dinky Town atmosphere. Great choice! Thanks,"

Their menu is very diverse and
they know how to make each dish taste the way it should. You can't go wrong with any of the dishes that you order. Go with a bigger group to taste more dishes family style. The wait staff are the friendliest around."

First visit to Pagoda for spouse
and me. For appetizers, the Kimchee was wonderful; the pot-stickers and cream puffs were good. For our entree, we selected Peking Duck after being advised that it is sliced very thin and without bones. Two generous platters arrived; one with thin slices of crispy skin, the other with chunks of duck meat with lots of little bones. The taste was very good; we both preferred it without the accompanying pancakes and plum sauce (which seemed to camouflage the taste of the duck). It was a nice dinner; we'd go back."

We have eaten Dim Sum at Pagoda
twice prior to this visit, and it was excellent. Unfortunately the dim sum freezer had failed the night before and we were not told until halfway through our meal that there were no other items coming out. It would have been nice to know this before we started. We had brought a guest and this was not a great situation for us. We ended up ordering additional items (at much higher cost) from the menu. It turns out the "pan-fried" dumplings are actually deep fried, not a recommended choice. Hoping that next time will be back to the prior excellent standards."

I have been to this restaurant on
a few occasions, and each time it gets better. The only drawback for me is that the location by the U of M campus makes it somewhat tough to get to. The service is outstanding, and the food is great! I'll definitely be back again and again!"

I have been impressed with lunch
at Pagoda. But dinner on Sunday evening was a dissapointment. Food was okay but nothing special. Blah not bright and fresh."

We had been going to Pagoda for
dim sum on several Sundays for the past couple of years. In the past the dim sum was very good. We were quite disappointed this time when many of the steamed items were not as fresh and tasty. We ordered some items from the menu and those dishes were good. Hopefully this was just an off day (father's day?) But it will be quite a while before we will return."

A 26 page menu and the best
Chinese food I've had in the Twin Cities... the only places I've had better was in NYC's Chinatown and in Beijing itself. We tried nine different entrees and four appetizers. All were outstanding. Definitely want to go back for hot pot ($30, all you can eat, or choose a set price for a plate from the menu)."

selection. Can't wait to try menu items next!"
