We've been a few times. The staff are helpful and will find who has a particular dish for you. We didn't have a booking so had to queue (just means everyone else knows it's good!) and a bit longer than usual as we had a pram. But they found a good spot where the pram wasn't in the walkway and... More

Food is excellent and if they don't bring you what you want you can ask and they will. Only downfall is a lots of the staff don't speak a word of English and I mean not a word at all...

Quick and friendly service to deliver fresh and tasty Yum Cha. Always busy which is a good indication.

It was very busy. Waited 30 minutes before we were shown to the table. Took another 10 mins before anyone came to the table. Another 10mins before the first trolley came around. Then it was the same 3 trolleys that kept coming around. Every time we asked for something were told it was coming but it did not. Very poor... More

Rating the food: 7/10 Good Yumcha Visited this restaurant many times and the food is consistent. Huge scrum of people queuing for weekend Yumcha, thankfully we booked online (allowed for 6 people or more). Easily the best Yumcha in Sydney's Inner West as locals have well and truly discovered this place. Located in the shopping centre with IKEA, easy car... More

We were seated by a waitress who obviously didn’t like babies, she seemed most annoyed with the pram and very put out when we asked for a high chair. Then began the long wait, there were hardly any food trollies circulating and very few of the servers even spoke minimal English. The food was outstanding (when it arrived) but it... More

Food is good but service is extremely poor. Better close it during holiday season or under staff. All staffs have no intention to work. Poor owner of this restaurant.

Have been a regular here for ten years. Not any more after last night. Dreary waiters, asked 3 times over 40 minutes for water. Main course took 45 minutes and all dishes except entrees were bland and poor quality. No one seemed to care about service or attention. Also prices have increased. A once great restaurant gone downhill.

frying food smell makes me feel not to eat; the food is served in the wrong sequence - it doesn't make sense to offer dessert when we just entered the restaurant. Food is rushed through, hardly have time to say "thank you" if you don't wish a dish. No value for money

We were out of our usual area for yum cha & happened to be in Rhodes (Saturday, 8th October 2016). It had been an early start that day & our tummies were growling so we lined up at the Phoenix at 12.45pm on a recent Saturday. We thought we would have to take a number & wait for a quite... More
