Owner operated, poor social skills & somewhat rude. Would not eat there again never ever. Owner appears to be more concerns about collecting your money than making sure the customer is happy. Want to say I loved it but can't.

I have been a patron of New Dragon Phoenix for many years. The food quality is consistently good and superior to most other buffets in the Nashville area. NDP does not have a massive buffet of mediocre dishes like some other places. They have a moderate-sized but high quality offering with good consistency. Like all Chinese buffets, it's always best...

friendly, delicious and great price! We sometimes struggle to find vegetarian offerings on the road. Dragon Phoenix was excellent.

Typical all you can eat oriental buffet. Lots of carnivore options very few vegetarian options. It was sustenance. The food had been out for some time. The green beens were better than the rest of the food.

Not bad for Chinese buffet. Food selections were many & varied, chicken, beef, pork, fish & soup. Both hot & spicy for various tolerances. Food was well prepared, fresh & tasty. Overall a good deal for a buffet that includes desert & "all you can eat" pricing.

I have ordered take out from this restaurant about once a month since my last review here in October. It was always good until this last weekend. I don't know what the heck happened this time--if they had a new chef or if they gave me old food, but it was not nearly as good as the other times. The... More

Got delivery from here through grubhub. Food was good, but they didn't send over any chopsticks, which I thought was weird. THe Chinese donuts were awesome; I could feel my arteries clogging but couldn't stop eating them nonetheless.

Typical Chinese food, but many items to select. Very good price for lunch buffet which includes tea. The building and furnishings are old, but appear to be clean. It's a great place to fill up hungry teenagers. The food items are clearly labeled, which is not the case at all Chinese buffets. Several choices for dessert, including ice cream.

Thank Terry M
