“You get what you pay for!”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

We went here for a group dinner with family. The thought was we could all get what we wanted and the kids wouldn't have to wait for food and get cranky. Selection was poor and food was replenished slowly.

“could be better, a lot better”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Unfortunately we stopped going here. At one time they were pretty good. Times have changed and the Phoenix hasn't. Food item choices are minimum. Not quite sure how they stay in business.
For a couple of bucks more go to Mentor on The Lake to The China Buffet and really ENJOY your evening!

“You can get better egg rolls from the gas station across the street”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

A friend of ours said that he drives into Mentor just to eat at the Phoenix Buffet, so I ate lunch there recently. All I can say is that there was nothing to recommend this Chinese buffet. All the selections were bland and the silverware appeared dull and greasy. A waste of $7.

“Probably the worst Chinese food I've ever had”
Reviewed February 7, 2011

I had to make sure I warned others about this place. It is situated in a small strip mall. The interior is not clean. The small buffet table sits in the middle with about 20 tables surrounding it. The buffet had many items that were not fresh. The spring rolls appeared quite old and had a funky taste. The hot and sour soup had a film of goo on top of the soup and it was very unappetizing looking. Entrees were not good despite trying five or six different items.

This place is to Chinese Restaurants what Jersey Shore is to TV. One server was filing all of the buffet food trays and waiting on tables so it took much longer than it should have. No way I would go back. Gross.
