We've been coming here for years, and have never been disappointed. The staff are so friendly and hospitable, it feels like home! The food is fab, our particular favourites are the crispy duck, spare ribs, and crispy shredded beef. If you want good food, great friendly service and good value for money, just ignore the tired decor. It is what... More

We went out in a Saturday night as a group of four, the restaurant was quite busy, we ordered one of the set meals and expected the starters to come out together but came one after the other, the food is very filling and quite tasty however the drinks are quite expensive especially the Chinese beer! The meal overall was... More

fab food. Best service in Knowle. Personable and treated like family. Even if I've been away for years, I'm still addressed by name, asked how my business is and take great care over everything. When the family gets together, this is where we go

We were the only customers in the restaurant when we got there, we ordered our food and it came out within 5 minutes, food was nice but as soon as we'd put our knives and forks down it was whisked away followed by the table cloth, the waitress walked away only to return with our bill which she placed on...

Used to come here a lot and have recently moved back to the area. This place is not great- the restaurant itself is so tired and worn out I'm surprised they don't get shut down! The carpets are dirty and the decor is ancient. The service was fine but the food was just so cheap! No good quality produce used.... More

The Phonlik House is the best Chinese restaurant in Knowle. Although we have not eaten in the restaurant for a while, we often have takeaways from there, which are very good. They consistently do the best barbecue ribs we have ever tasted and also my husband says their duck in plum sauce is also the best. We have tried many... More

Disappointed with a capital "D" after being duped by the amount of reviews on this TripAdvisor site referring to this Chinese restaurant. I Travelled over 398 miles to to spend an overnight stay with family that we have not seen for over 30 years to end up in a very dated, very overrated Chinese restaurant, that took me back to...

Just been to the Phonlik, as we saw reviews on trip advisor. Cold plates and average food. The staff were all nice but the food left a lot to be desired. Taste less, just not up to take away standards at restaurant prices there are a lot better places than this for a Chinese in Knowle and Dorridge. Best description... More
