It used to be the best chinese food in town, but it seems like the food quality has gone down in the last couple of years. Please go back to the way it was!

The Golden Phoenix is a favorite of our when in Rapid City. This is the first time we have eaten lunch there. The lunch was orange chicken and was wonderful - way more than an older couple can eat for lunch. The prices are great and I would highly recommend this restaurant for either lunch or dinner.

Pretty bad Couldn't eat the cabbage rolls~taste awful or the sugared donuts-tough! Pretty hard to mess those up. It was recommended by someone that lives there but the only other places he recommended were chains. Everyone doesn't have a very discerning taste or pay attention to where local ppl swarm I will never go their again

Kind of expensive. We ordered two meals to go. The service was quick. Unfortunately, both me and my husband got sick from eating the food. My daughter wanted Chinese for her birthday while traveling to Mt. Rushmore so we stopped there. Definitely not somewhere I would eat again.

Excellent experience. We ordered sesame chicken and beef with broccoli. We had a hungry 9 year old with us...and two combination dinners feed two adults and a child with a little food left over! The waitress suggested ordering 2 combos served "family style"... excellent idea! Combos also included soup- both the wonton soup and egg drop soup were very good.... More

Friendly, fast service and excellent food. Large portions, competitive prices. We have tried a variety of items on the menu and all were good. I eat here whenever I am in Rapid City. Delish.

Nice atmosphere and good food. Friendly servers. I like my food spicy and it was customized to my taste. At your request, msg and sugar will be removed from a meal's ingredients. Fast service and generous portions. Beer and wine only, no Mai Tais.

Chinese food is generally hit or miss, but I really love it and it is great for carry out. I did some research before our trip to Rapid City and decided I needed to find something that would be easy to bring back to the hotel room, so we weren't dining out every evening. This did the trick. When I... More

We had a good combination meal. It was pretty good chinese food. Combination included soup and egg roll which was more than I could eat.
