“Total Rip Off -Avoid!!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Recently ordered a takeaway from this restaurant. To say it was a disappointment is an understatement. The food was cold & tasteless and to rub salt in the wounds the price was astronomical.

Ordered online & when the food was delivered the delivery guy told me to prices had gone up! Not according to there own website on the menu tab.

Avoid at all cost

“What has happened??”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

I used to visit Phoenix regularly a few years back; at that time the food was lovely, the staff welcoming, and the service exceptional. Over the past 12 months or so, however, the Phoenix seems to have gone drastically down hill! On my last visit I was part of a large party, with the exception of one waiter the service was dire. You would have thought that with such a large party, the aim would be to please and ensure a good impression was made; however, the service was terrible! The general feeling was that we weren't wanted there. We all paid for the all you can eat buffet; food took a long time to arrive, no extras were offered, small children were charged full price, staff were generally unfriendly and unwelcoming. It is so sad to see what was once a lovely place to spend an evening go in to such decline.

“A Birthday night out”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We visited the Phoenix as a group of 5 couples for a birthday night out. We were shown to a private party room with a large tv on the wall. As it was champions league final night we asked if we could watch the game to which we were told "telly not work" . We ordered our food which was average to say the least, duck in plum sauce came as duck in pineapple but the waitress asked who ordered lobster!!! The special fried rice was dry as they didn't do a house special with sauce. If you like green/red peppers then this is the place for you in the absence of meat in your dish despite asking for beef in black bean sauce. The host of our party asked the staff if his girlfriend could have a little extra for her b'day such as a sambucca or maybe a cake to which he got a straight "no" which is very insulting considering what a party of 10 spent on drinks and food. In summary we will not be eating here again or recommending this restaurant to anybody. Very disappointing indeed

“Golden Phoenix or Chu's Golden......”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

First of all, as far as I know it's Chu's G.P. Don't really want to be giving a review for the wrong restaurant! We had a £16 pp buffet. It was very nice, except for the beef with ginger which was chewy, We left this. The rest of the buffet was good, and we would have left some food anyway because there was plenty! The wine was good. Overall, we enjoyed, and would recommend. After your meal, you could cross the road to the Belle Vue pub. At weekends, they sometimes have bands on. Take note of the residents' parking around that area. It's OK to park after 6pm on week days.
