I went here with a group, all of us were able to find something we liked. The menu is extensive and everyone was pleased. We were even lucky enough to meet the owner. A very nice man. He runs a great establishment. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant. The ambiance is also lovely! Great view from the deck.

I met an old friend here for dinner. He couldn't find the restaurant in the mall and I think they need to advertise more - the food was good, but for the entire 3 hours we were there we were the only two customers and it was Friday night.

We had an enjoyable evening at the Phoenician and ordered a 'boat' of sushi. It was fresh and somewhat tasty, though did not match other sushi offerings in NBO that are at the same price point. It is upstairs at Junction. Should you have difficulty finding it security will point you in the right direction. We didnt make a reservation... More

My husband and i came for dinner just by chance. Its at the top of the mall so unless you go looking you may not realise its there. Theres a wide variety of meals, spirits and wines. Its a large venue so good if you have a large group. Maybe the lighting is a little dark but if you want... More

I recently made an order by phone as a take away. The contact given online was for Phoenician junction.. When I called up a lady called Judy picked up and answered the phone as "Phoenician junction". I proceeded to pick up my food 30 minutes later at Phoenician junction only to find out when I got there that I had... More

The Phoenician, my long term favorite for Japanese food has lost some of its performance and quality... The salmon sushi have nerves it the salmon, the hot plates are to greasy.. improvements are welcome, more competition is around the corner! Talisman etc...

The restaurant (new location in Westlands) is behind my former office so I've been there mainly for lunch. Bento box is good value (doggy bag for sure), but it takes forever to come out of the kitchen and the staff never looks in the direction of the floor so it's nearly impossible to get their attention. Lebanese food is OK... More

I bumped into the Phoenician as I waited for my friend who was rather late for a date. I sat in and twas pretty quiet..good ambience if you like your quiet like me. Service was speedy although everything was not so orderly presentation wise. A little of my teriyaki was burnt but not enough to cause a furore. My friend's... More
