Restaurant Review: Pagoda, Limassol

By Stephanie Robb

It’s been a while since I’ve had a decent helping of Chinese cuisine but now that the intolerable summer heat has died down, it is high time to tickle those forgotten taste buds. When it comes to Chinese restaurants, many have come and gone in Limassol but none have withstood the test of time as Pagoda has.

Situated just off the tourist road, pleasing those looking for a central location and those looking for a place removed from the overwhelming bustle of the area, Pagoda appeals to all.
Pagoda exudes sophistication, even as you are about to enter the restaurant, and it is a theme that continues throughout the meal. Professional and pleasant staff also add to the positive experience of a visit there. The atmosphere was not the only positive thing on offer. To last so many years in the competitive restaurant market Pagoda must be doing something right and every bite of my meal confirmed that.

With winter starting to draw in, I wanted to try one of the soups and opted for the wan tun noodle soup. Wan tun is a smaller form of a dumpling and the soup was delicious, the perfect appetizer to the meal. What has to be tried is the crispy aromatic duck. This dish, a long standing standard in Chinese restaurants, is as good as it gets at Pagoda. So good in fact that one may be tempted to just skip the main and treat this starter as one. Other great starter options would be the Chicken Satay and the delightful crispy seaweed.

For main course there is an amazing variety of dishes that satisfy all taste buds – chicken, pork, fish or vegetarian. First of all back to another old favourite – sweet and sour chicken, a dish you can’t get enough of when done right. And Pagoda does not disappoint. If you want to be more adventurous there are plenty of other options: beef, pork or chicken marinated in oyster sauce, which too tastes amazing. However, if seafood is more up your alley then the Hainan spicy braised prawns should be your one and only choice.

Whatever the occasion, or the dish be sure to choose a wine from Pagoda’s rich selection and just sit back and thoroughly enjoy your meal. Price-wise unfortunately, don’t expect it to come cheap, but it’s not the most expensive thing out there
