We were there for the Sunday buffet and enjoyed the appetizers very much. No soups were offered. The main entrees were good with a large selection but I would have liked a little more sauce on them. The desserts were simple and consisted of mostly fresh fruits. Overall, I thought it was a little on the expensive side.

Have been there on several occasions for their Sunday buffet. The food is of good quality and variety is great, including ok sushi. Desert is a weak spot, but this is a Chinese restaurant after all.

Decor is of the Chinese traditional sensory overload type, with plenty of dark carved wood and satin everywhere. It's not stuffy, however, and can be pleasantly warm if you're in a proper mood.

Service was spotty when we were there, friendly but clearly overloaded by the Sunday buffet crush. If you don't want too many drinks and/or extras you'll be fine.

Value for money is a great plus, at least for the buffet.

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!!!)...

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.
