“Very good, but don't go for the buffet”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

The first time we went to the new restaurant in Glyfada we had the singapore noodles, the satay beef and steam rice. Everything was perfect! The second time, we went to the Saturday lunch buffet and i didn't enjoy as i expected to... The buffet was opened from 13:00, we arrived at 15:00 and we were the first table, so some of the food was a bit cold, and i also found the variety a bit poor (on Sunday they have more). Note that both times we paid the same price!
I must say that i have been to Golden Phoenix many times (in Kefalari, Kifissia, and Argyroupoli before they moved it to Glyfada) and i always enjoyed the food, but the buffet let me down.
In a few words: if you haven't tried asian cuisine before then try the buffet (but be there early!), if you do know what asian food is about then just order your favourite and skip the buffet (and the extra calories!!!)...

“Overpriced and average Chinese food”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Although this may be the best Chinese food in Athens, the food is very overpriced and just plain average. Fried rice, Peking duck with pancakes, and some of the appetizers are good, while the main chicken and meat dishes are bland and uninspired. Best bet for value is the Sunday buffet.

The new in Glyfada is amazing, perfect food great service, real Chinese food. magnificent Peking duck and noodls, everything perfect. Especially when it is a buffet, you don't know what to choose. Very good prices and pleasant environment for families.

“Asian Cuisine”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

My Greek sister, Jenny Gedeon, loves this place -- though she's not fond of Asian food. Golden Phoenix offers more choices -- location is always strategic -- price is competitive.
