“Don't do it!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2009

Don't do it! We are military on fort Hauchuca, and this was the only chinese place that would deliver on base. Despite the so so reviews we took the dive. This food was terrible! The beef and brocolli had a very distinct flavor that tasted just like embalming fluid smells. the sauce was watery and clear, not like normal chinese beef and brocolli that has a thick brown sauce. the shrimp fried rice was just plain white rice with some peas and a few shrimp tossed in. no traditional chinese flavorings. I ordered a large sweet and sour pork and got a large container filled up with plain rice and a small handful of dried up stale tasting pork. we had to throw away $28, of overpriced terrible food. Normally we would just go ahead and eat it and just never order again, but this food was so bad my family just went to bed hungry. NEVER AGAIN! Please, to my other military members, Do not waste your money. This place should be closed down!

“It's ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2009

We've ordered from Golden Phoenix for a couple years. It's been hit or miss. Most of the time the food and service is really good, other occasions it's been really bad. Have only ordered for home delivery, so don't know abou the restaurant atmosphere. We typically only order from them when we can't decide on anything else. Then we cross our fingers that it will turn out ok.

This place is great! I take all of my friends here. It is by far my favorite part of coming to Sierra Vista. The staff is so friendly. I would recommend this place to anybody.

“Only in times of famine if you MUST have delivery and there's no more stray cats”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2008

My wife and I have been subjecting ourselves to horrible food and horrible service for far too long. For the past two years we have ordered delivery from Golden Phoenix on the average, atleast once a month. We are huge fans of Asian cuisine and this is the ONLY "Asian" restaurant we have found to deliver in our area. The food has always been sub-par, but we still get a hankering for this style every once in a while. Every time we order, the food is poor, the prices change, and the attitudes are asinine. Being the sole deliverer of Asian food, we have forgiven these major shortcomings one too many times. Our last experience ended with canned vegetables, terrible sauce tasting like cheap soy sauce, and chicken rivaling the quality of that found in generic canned chicken noodle soup. When we called the restaurant to discuss our meal, we encountered a petulant punk kid who laughed at our complaint, avoided identifying himself, and finally hung up on us. We called back today, to speak with the owner/manager, or anyone besides the delivery kid. We were told we were holding up the phone lines and once again, promptly hung up on. Golden Phoenix has earned its last buck from us. Stay away! Terrible food and horrible service.
