“As Good as the Best in China Town”
Reviewed 19 February 2013 via mobile

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 is more unusual and translated into English. The Ma Pro Tufu was outstanding from this second section. Will be back, and I reccomend giving it a try despite the odd location for such a good place.

“My favorite Chinese restaurant in NCL”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

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

Reviewed 27 May 2009

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 the Chinese community, rather than the Western palate.
