Service was pretty poor, spent most of the night trying to flag down staff. Had an empty wine glass for an hour, staff not really making eye contact or rushing passed..

Amazing food, service and venue. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was delicious and good value. We especially loved the lobster 🦞 Highly recommended for a romantic dinner, family outing, special occasion or a large group dining.

Had to order yumcha off a menu. Surely you can't call it yumcha if the food is not brought around on a trolley. Understand, that is a part of the experience - the trolley!!!
I understand it is probably to save costs. But it takes away from the experience. But I thought to myself well at least we will get exactly what we want because we are ordering from a menu.
The wait, was too long and the food, THE FOOD WAS BARELY WARM when it got to the table and tasted kind of stale!!! Is it wrong to expect hot, fresh yumcha?

The service was great. No problems there. But if you are going to insult your customers by poor quality food that is cold, don't expect customers to return. I won't be. Am very disappointed. I am a massive yumcha eater. I'd easily say Brisbane Phoenix Chinese Restaurant serves the worst yumcha in Brisbane. The all you could eat yumcha that was in the valley was similar quality food. They closed down. I don't wonder why.

20th Wedding Anniversary - mains brought out before we’d even finished our entrees
Service wasn’t rude but quite aloof and general ambience very ordinary

My only issue is when you are offered tea like water and say yes to then have them continue to bring fresh pots and then charged for it. But otherwise it was great

We’ve eaten at Phoenix more than a dozen times since they opened and we love it. Fantastic food, great service, well priced wine list and happy attentive staff. All in all it’s our go to for high end Chinese and their Dim Sum is the best in Brisbane.

A great experience all round. Service was attentive and food delicious albeit some dim sum being oversteamed. Their prices are on the higher end for yum cha, so be prepared to pay.

No tap water. Charged $8 for a bottle of water.
Food was absolutely beautiful amd could not fault it. Was concerned the $22 fried rice was very pricey but it was packed with prawns and scallops so was well worth it!
Will definitely return here again.

A group of 3 of us shared an assortment of dumplings, seafood and meat dishes. Each dish was spectacular and elegant. Good serving sizes too.
The coral trout with chopped chilli was a standout for me!
Service was friendly and prompt.
Will absolutely be back!

Probably the best Chinese food in Brisbane. Absolutely fantastic. Staff were helpful and attentive. Our only complaint would be the noise. There was a lot of plate banging. Probably not helped because dirty dishes are stacked in the bar and then wheeled through the restaurant. Dont let this put you off though.

Delicious food and excellent service! Very easy with parking downstairs and only $5 with ticket validated. Lots of space in restaurant with nice decor. Had a toddler and a baby with us which were well accommodated for. Will be back!

Too many staff hovering around to take things away. Took too long to get an alcoholic drink, too busy wanting to give us water. A staff member for water, a staff member for wine, a staff member to clean the table, a staff member to take your order and a staff member to bring your food.
