Best Chinese in Catonsville

We have always loved Little Phoenix and recently, I think it's got even better! Try the General Tso's shrimp; they got rid of a lot of extra breading and now it has a light and crispy outside!

My main reason for the poor rating is that this is not Iowa, so we shouldn't be calling this Chinese food. The surrounding area has many choices for authentic Chinese cuisine, but this is not one. Head over to Rolling Rd and Rt. 40. There is a Hunanese restaurant in that plaza that is probably the best restaurant in Catonsville,... More

We were looking for a sit-down Chinese American restaurant after Dragon House closed in Owings Mills. At Little Phoenix, you get large portions and a variety of favorite dishes. You can order traditional combinations or small dishes like sushi and dumplings. The staff is very personable and it’s nice to have an alternative to Asian buffets.

On a recent trip you Md. there were a few types of food I wanted to have. Living in Florida we have a void when it comes to good Asian of any kind. My family took me here for the first time and it was so delicious. All of our dishes were tasty and so fresh. In addition, the service... More

MIL wanted Cantonese food, we wanted spicy. Little Phoenix gave us both! The portions were large and the food excellent. I had broccoli in garlic sauce. The broccoli had some nice crunch even though we did take out. DH had tofu pad thai which he devoured. MIL had chop suey and egg roll. Her chop suey had tons of shrimp.... More

Went for lunch...twice! Fast service and excellent Chinese food. When I returned later in the week my server, Cindy, not only remembered me but remembered what I liked too. When I didn't finish my meal she not only insisted I take it with me she put ice in a bag to keep it cool in my car for my ride... More

Great Chinese food. Not a lot of onions to overwhelm the taste. Always ready on time. Egg drop soup is heavenly.

Be careful when you go, and check your takeout. If the restaurant is busy, service will be bad and you'll likely get the wrong food. Happens every time. Take out-check your order. Too common to get home and find the wrong food. If the restaurant isn't busy, food is good; rating would be higher.

Whenever I have a craving for Chinese food, Little Phoenix is always where my husband and I go. The ambiance is just the right amount of formal, tablecloths on the tables and nice music playing. Dinner specials include choice of soup, the main course, choice of white or fried rice, and an egg roll. The wonton soup is very good.... More
