The external image of this venue does not in any way reflect the quality of the food they serve inside - it is excellent - definitely worth a visit We will be back!!

This Chinese is ok for basic Chinese but it's nothing special. Not certain how fresh everything is- lemon chicken was a bit dry. After eating in other Chinese restaurants this isn't great. Wouldn't necessarily go back unless desperate.

In the restaurant the food is great. All staff are perfect. It's not 'posh' but a really good meal out. Take away is hot and fresh. So happy with it we tried a 'lunch box'. Highly recommended!

Very pleasant evening for my Mum's birthday. It is, what I'd call, classic Chinese food, but it was all done well and was very tasty. Delicious salt and chilli ribs with a good kick and wafer wrapped prawns were highlights from our starters. Crispy shredded beef and char sui pork from the mains were also good. Service was fine, with... More

I have been to this restaurant many time over the years had some take always too. The food is certainly of top quality but when crowded the service can be bit chaotic but the quality of food makes up for it. The owner and the staff are very welcoming.

Let's face it you don't go and eat a Chinese meal if you're looking for a healthy option so let's not kid ourselves! If it's a tasty meal you're looking for then Phonlik are pretty consistent. I've tried numerous Chinese restaurants around Solihull and they deliver consistently decent dishes. I've had one bad one from here that I did take... More

Despite living in Knowle fur 18 years I have never been to the Phonlik and probably won't for a while again. It was pretty standard takewaway food fairly bland and reminded me of something I'd have eaten in the 80's. Also decor and service were like a blast from the past both really in need of lifting into the 21st... More

Food was greasy and overpriced, considering there are two other Cantonese takeaways in Knowle the Phonlik is very poor, interior looks dated and isn't pleasant, takeaway is poor, other two takeaways are cheaper,better quality and have bigger portions on the whole, service slow here also

Have been going to the Phonlik restaurant for some years, have always enjoyed the food and cannot fault the service. All the staff are very friendly and have never had any problems with food or service.
