Recently I attended a Chinese Banquet meal at the Rhodes Phoenix Chinese Restaurant. Hundreds of diners were present on the auspicious night in this large restaurant located on Level 5 of one of the largest shopping centres in Sydney - one level above a very large food court. One complete wall of the restaurant is made of glass which allows... More

Dined here for lunch on a Monday. Easy to get a table. Large variety if yum Cha dishes. Trolleys going around very often. We had one dish that was cold, but was immediately replaced with a hot dish. If we had been in a larger group we would have tried more dishes. Will certainly go again.

A group of us had weekday lunch at this restaurant, it was a little hard to find through the car park. We had to walk across the car park level to the other side to access the front door. Lunch wasn't as busy as some reviews said on the weekend and it was fairly easy to get a table. Food... More

Been here the last two times and their service is dropping, you must wait too long once seated between food trolleys for yum cha, waiters all look overworked and unhappy to be there , for the amount of money pouring into this...

Rhodes Phoenix is a very busy Yum Cha on the weekends but not too busy on weekdays. You will have to queue/wait on weekends if you don't have a booking after about 10:45am. But the staff run the queue v efficiently (and loudly!), and their estimates of how long you need to wait are spot on. But there is a... More

Very tasty and very popular yum cha restaurant. Be prepared for st least a 40minute wait at peak time on weekends but it is worth it. There is great variety and excellent service once you get a table. Mango pancakes are my highlight.

Food always fresh and very fast service. Have tried to get into Yum cha during busy periods but no luck. Waiters sometimes have trouble understanding your requirements due to language barriers

We attended as a group of 12, and once they realised we didn't quite fit on 2 tables they arranged us into one large table, banquet b was plenty of food and very tasty! Service was good, wine list is good - and I recommend you try the green apple cocktail!

Looks good but the food in just mediocre to average suburban Chinese - staff vary from indifferent to rude and negligent For the standard it is very expensive - the nearby Ikea cafetaria is much better value Wont eat there again
