Had not visited this restaurant for a while as been out of the area. Decor has been spruced up since I was last here, food still excellent and service good. Had the crispy duck which was a generous portion. Vegetarian Yuk Sung and mixed dim sum.

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

Used to dine here years ago and tonight I was happy to see everything is as good again. The same loyal staff were as attentive as ever. The decor is in need of updating now and several artefacts on the wall are rescuing the dowdyness.

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

Have been going to the Phonlik for around 25 years and the food has always been good if a little lacking in choice. Visited this week after a gap of 2 years or so and I must say I was a bit shocked at how shabby the restaurant has become. It never was particularly smart but it really does need... More

Our party of four arrived on time for our meal booked for 8:00 pm on Saturday and were directed to a table for four near the widow which was fine – there were quite a few diners in at this time which was a promising sign? Ordered drinks while checking the menu – the only draught beer is Carling, which... More

I had a takeaway but the place was old fashioned looking and tired but clean. The food when I got it back didn't come close to other takeaways I've had from other restaurants so I wont be going back for another takeaway and I wouldn't go for a sit down meal either. Beef satay looked like dog food and the... More
