Fantastic

Lovely food, such a nice variety. Service is really good, they are able to cater for coeliac which is brilliant which means my family don't miss out on the things we are eating. Amazing ribs and crispy duck!!

We came for lunch on a Saturday, and had a very nice array of food, served quite swiftly, and in good portions. Service was professional, and everything was clean and perfect. To our great joy, it turned out that there is also a special, "Chinese only" menu, plus it was pointed out to us that they could make just about... More

Picked up a takeaway from here as it was fully booked and it was recommended by a friend. All the staff seemed really nice and the atmosphere appeared very jovial. The food was very good. Their take on sweet and sour chicken was enough to have me coming back and eating in the restaurant. Really good chinese food.

We decided to book a table for daughters and grandson and we once again experienced good service and excellent food, I tried a new Pork dish and it was lovely, so once again we had a lovely meal here and our grandson also enjoyed trying some of the milder spiced food

Recently visited the Phoenix for the first time as part of a large group - we were glad to have the round tables for easier conversation. I don't often eat Chinese food out in the UK (outside of larger cities) - most Chinese restaurants are heavily Westernised in that they don't carry much in the way for vegetarians or vegans... More

As far as I'm concerned, the previous customers are easily pleased. The first time I visited the Phoenix would be 15 years ago, and nothing much has changed since, same decor and same food. My tastes have moved on, theirs haven't , not much better than pre-prepared and reheated takeaway food. We had a set meal for 2, each dish... More

Very friendly staff. Food excellent and nicely served. A full and varied menu. I had a crab soup to start followed by a prawn dish with rice. Also had a glass of wine and a glass of soda water. All came to just over £20 so very good value. I highly recommend this restaurant.

First time we have tried the food here and we were not disappointed. We asked for delivery for 8pm Friday and it arrived exactly on time. We had the crispy beef which was delicious and the seafood trio which was ok. Ribs and salt and pepper prawns were very good and with lots of chilli. We will certainly visit the... More
