We decided to give the Phoenix another try as it seemed the reviews had gotten better. Nothing has changed since our last visit over five years ago. Décor still the same, old, dark & musty smelling. The buffet looked like it had been updated, better...More

Love ordering the diner for 2, it offers a great selection of dishes, all tasty and fresh. Veggies are cooked to perfection and there is no better chow mien anywhere!
