I've never had such an appalling takeaway in all of my life. Beware if you're a vegetarian. First your vegetarian soup will come with fish in it, then when you ring the unhelpful staff up and they come out for a second time it comes with chicken and another unidentified mystery meat in it. It takes 1 hour 15 for... More

Excellent authentic food. Good service, plenty of choice for veggies, waiters willing to adapt dishes too. Since I've been here I don't go to any other chinese restaurant!

Were going to a show at the Arena and had booked table for 10.00 pm. Staying at Jurys Inn and had decided we wanted somewhere close to it after the show. It was nearer 10.15 when we got to restaurant but the staff had been aware we were going to show so had no problems with that. No other customers... More

Went to this restaurant as it was close to Jury's Inn hotel and previous reviews. I was not disappointed. The food was very tasty and the service was excellent. The final bill was very good as well. I would go back.

As hotel was near the station, I decided to try the Golden Phoenix as it was handy and the reviews were good, if a little thin on the ground. It is truly excellent. Not worth the trip to China Town, service was very pleasant and the food was fresh and authentic. Menu has one half UK type fair, the other... More

I'm from north China and I think the dish here is even more delicious than that of my hometown! Perhaps it's due to my homesick. <3

This is a must-go for anyone who like *real* chinese food. If you're looking for pork sweet and sour and prawn crackers, forget it. Instead you will get real Chinese food like duck tongues, cold lung and pig tripe. Cuisine from inner China, it tends to the hot end of the spectrum. Perhaps Newcastle's first Chinese restaurant aimed entirely at... More
