We love going to China town for Dim Sum, on a resent visit our regular place was closed so we tried Phoenix. We waited about 30 min for a table, the food carts were busy. We like to try just about everything and it was all good, just a little slow for the good stuff, like the shrimp crepe, and... More

Brought some friends from out of town who were happily delighted. The variety is incredible and the food is great. The fish with garlic and soy sauce is mouth watering. I can't remember the name of all the dishes that we had but it may not even matter, they were all good!

Short Story: Really enjoyed Breakfast here. The 'crepe' style with the crispy center was our favorite. Wonderful textures. The egg tarts were so delicate, flaky and fresh ...also worth the trip for. Pork Buns were a notch above what I've had elsewhere. Again, obviously fresh makes a big difference. My big adventure: chicken feet in special sauce. Think Asian chicken... More

Went on Saturday morning for dim sum and it was crowded. Food was standard good and expected. Service was ok. You have to wait for new cart to come and serve you different food or you can just point and order from the menu. Otherwise, you will always have the same cart going around the tables. Still a nice place... More

Respectable dim sum. As I always find when it's just me and my husband eating dim sum, I need more people to try more stuff! Most unusual dish was a curried squid, not that curried squid is that crazy but I've never seen it on a dim sum menu. And it was very good. Good dumplings, efficient service. We were... More

A very large popular China Town restaurant. Very good food, well prepared and large menu. Service also very good. A little more pricey than most but worth trying if you like to search for the best.

This is where you will get dim sum as it should be. I have eaten this for my entire life in its homeland and major cities around the world. I can truly say that dim sum at Phoenix is about as good as it gets. Variety is great and all are at the top of the game. We have never... More

My wife and I just returned to the Phoenix for their dim sum as it is the best that we have found in the Midwest. As a child she would go to Chinatown in New York for weekend dim sum and I was spoiled by dim sum in San Francisco's Chinatown when I lived near there. We found the Phoenix... More

I took a group of people to The Phoenix Restaurant this past week. The food was excellent! We ordered about 6 different entrees and shared as a group. The neighborhood is a bit 'iffy' but overall our experience was a good one. We used "Uber" after our dinner and had a driver there within 5 minutes to take all 6... More

there are so many restaurants in Chinatown to choose from, but each time we have eaten at the Phoenix we have enjoyed every bite from their vast selection. We haven't had the dim sum, but after reading other reviews, we'll have to go back. would definitely recommend for any tourist looking for a relaxing atmosphere with good food.
