Pretty decent soup of spinach and chicken. Pretty decent steamed shrimp and broccoli . Lousy and rude attitude of some waiters at the end of our lunch who had the audacity to embarrass me stating that my cards were declined, when apparently I called up the credit card companies and was told that they did not even have any evidence...

We found this restaurant by chance , don't let the scaffolding around the front of the restaurant put you off , it really is worth a try. The food was of a high standard with good size portions that can be shared . Service was efficient , and the vodka and diet cokes were huge ! If you are in... More

We had a great lunch at Tang Pavilion, the food was delicious and well presented, the portions generous and the fresh fruit at the end of the meal was a really nice touch. The décor is plain but elegant, he service overall was good but the waiters spend too much time talking to each other and playing with their cell... More

Stuck in a row of small restaurants is this gem. When I looked at the website, I was expecting a hole in the wall but this place was top drawer. Excellent service, full bar and decent wine list. Food was fresh, tasty and served with style. We had shrimp and vegetable dumplings, beef with broccoli , two types of shrimp,... More

I ate at Tang Pavilion numerous times, it offers great food. I personally likes the Buddha Delight and all their sea food dishes. My wife prefers their chicken with cashews. The service is superb and the prices are moderate. If you are close to six ave and mid fifties don't miss this tasty dishes.

Went here a few years ago and thought I would try it again. Was disappointed. It was quite expensive and the meal wasn't that great. Was't bad, but for the price, it could have been a bit more flavoursome.

We stayed in Hilton Midtown for four days. We chanced upon this restaurant on the third day of our stay, on the walk back from Microsoft store where my two boys played video games. We ordered chicken, stir fried mutton, a steamed fish and a vegetable dish. Having dined in Toronto for ages, we are used to high-quality, authentic Chinese... More

Don't get the ribs, they were like shoe leather. The chicken with snow peas and pineapple was good. The vegetable dumplings weren't very good

We dropped in on the Tang Pavillion during a family holiday in July. We phoned up to reserve a table, and were told "yes, there is one available" said with all the empathy of a mortician. We then arrived and, having been greeted with again an almost deliberate absence of emotion were taken to our table. From that point onwards,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
