Booked a last minute table - and the restaurant was really busy - we given a fab table away from the crowds - service was a little slow to start - but that was to be expected with the amount of people dining - we chose a bottle of wine and drinks and were left in peace to view the... More

Great food, helpful staff, decent decor. Nothing to dislike. Did order a bottle of champagne which put them in a tizzy but they found one and normal service resumed!

We booked a table at The Phoenix on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. There is plenty of on street parking in this part of Lincoln so access is much easier than the city centre or Brayford Pool where most of the restaurants are located. The restaurant is traditional in design and the tables are separated... More

Ate here on 10 December 2014. Decided to try it based on TA reviews. Very, very good. Hadn't booked, but table no problem. Attentive, but not over fussy service, and nice atmosphere with a mixture of couples and families. Can't remember what our bill was, but do know that we felt it was very reasonable. Seek this place out if... More

Booked a table for 8pm. Never been here before so though we would give it a try. Have to say the restaurant was very nice and well laid out. Staff are very friendly but would say a bit slow in getting your order from you. Maybe this is how they work here so you don't feel pressured. What I will... More

We went for a meal on New Years Eve and had a set menu plus an extra dish (a personal favourite, crispy aromatic lamb!). The food taste fresh an there was enough time between ample courses. We did find the food came in dribs and drabs but everything was time just about right before the point it had cooled. Others... More

The restaurant was spacious and comfortable with polite staff who covered the numerous tables and customers. As others have mentioned it is an old-fashioned Chinese restaurant (usual kind of anglo-Chinese menu) with old-fashioned decor (not a problem). We were however a little disappointed with the food compared with Chinese restaurants in other cities in the UK. The egg fried rice... More

was taken to this restaurant by friends and can say I will return. The service was great, friendly helpful and very organised staff. We was a party of 10 and went for a set menu and the selection of meats and fish dishes was superb. The Lemon chicken was a great surprise and very tangy. The price of drinks are... More
