A very busy Saturday evening. The restaurant was full but we still received excellent service and first class food. We have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. We will certainly visit again soon. An excellent evening.

Went on spec on a Sunday night 1730, usually we go later or a fri/sat and you have to book. We were the only ones in the restaurant at that time, although the phone was busy for take aways.

I've eaten in at the Phoenix before and it's always been pretty decent, so thought I'd try a takeaway. Apart from being very expensive:- The spare ribs were almost all fat The aromatic lettuce wrap was pure grease Chicken Szuechan was tasteless My partners Special Chow Mein was tastless and greasy All in all, utter rubbish. Avoid!

I had rang ahead to see if they had a gluten free menu and was told my diet could be accommodated. We visited on a Saturday night, the staff we welcoming, tables were rather snug, due to being gluten free I had chicken satay for starter, aromatic duck with spring onion, cucumber and sauce with lettuce instead of the pancakes...

Our last treat when visiting my brother and sister -in-law was a delightful country pub. This time they risked taking us to the newly refurbished Phoenix. No sign of the ashes! First impressions were very good. It was a really nice environment. The service was instant..we hardly had time to sit down! The food, well? Having eaten in Chinese restaurants... More

were in Lincoln for a short break and always went to the Ocean when in Lincoln [for 25yrs] but alas it is now closed, so thought we would give the Phoenix a try. The food was good and the service efficient , the only thing that let them down was thick dust on the chairs although the rest of the... More

Hearing some good stuff we booked a table for a family occasion. First impression was the decor was dated but staff were friendly enough. The menu was expensive in my opinion but macs me think we were in for something special. Ordered a set menu for £21 each. The food was all fine but no better than several Chinese takeaways... More
