It was annoying that the BNE dine in menu was for a minimum of 4 people but this was not stated on the offer or when you booked via the website. The food we had was okay, the roast duck was actually fried duck. The pork and prawn wontons were more prawn!
The seafood tofu hot pot was nice though with generous ingredients.

some foods were really good, but some things had poor attention to detail...poorly drained and greasy...like dripping onto the plate greasy. Think Ill stick to my old sunnybank haunts..

The food was really not great. It was so difficult to get the waiting staff’s attention. Waited 15 mins to get some soy sauce, no one checked on the food. Wanted to have desert but couldn’t get anyone’s attention to order, we waved and raised our hands but they were just too busy, tried about 20 mins and gave up.

Price for food was too overpriced for the quality and portion of the meal. The customer service was terrible it took 50 minutes for us to get our food. Other people that ordered after us got their food before us which isn’t right.

I had an extremely unsatisfactory visit to brisbane phoenix restaurant. I visited in a group of 4 people for lunar new year on feb 12. We had made a booking for 8pm and arrived promptly on time, to a fairly empty restaurant and a long queue outside. When my partner enquired about our table, and mentioned we had a booking, he was told that “everyone has a booking”, indicating the long line out the door. This was despite the fact I asked a person in the queue if they had a reservation and they said they did not.

Once we finally were seated, it took another 30 minutes for anyone to take our order. In this time four other tables were seated and had their orders taken, and I had to ask a waitress to even get any service.

We ordered four dishes and a fried rice between us. The first dish (a bbq platter) arrived fairly promptly, and then nothing arrived in the half hour following. We had no rice (plain or fried) with which to eat any of our dishes. After the half hour, another dish (crispy chicken) arrived. Approximately 15 minutes later the barramundi arrived with the fried rice. The last dish (scallops) never arrived at all. It was only at toward us finishing the fish and rice that we asked about the scallops, and ended up just deciding to cancel the dish.

The food was average, palatable but not amazing. However two out of the four dishes preceded the rice, which made them salty and difficult to eat on their own. For the exorbitant fine dining prices they charge I expected much better - this was not fine dining.

I am astonished that, for what I imagine would be one of the most demanding days for a Chinese restaurant with massive demand, that the restaurant was unequipped to handle the number of orders. Their staff and time management skills need massive improvement as I can only rate my experience as significantly subpar.

We were there for a Valentine’s Day dinner menu which was very limited and over priced. Our last dish came 45 minutes late.
Service needs to be improved. One of the waitresses poured water so aggressively and spilled water on bag and didn’t apologize

Ambiance was non existent for CNY. Service average, didn't know 10pm close and lastly refusal to split bill because I hadn't read the fine print on a walk message means we will not return.

We dined on Lynda New Years Eve. The food was tasty overall but the service was chaotic, several times we were brought the wrong meal and had to ask for updates to our actual meal. Apparently they were training new staff but training should have been done before this event. For the price we felt very disappointed by the service and quality. Not up to scratch.

Pretty Good Yum Cha though a bit on the pricey side. Seating next to the kitchen not the best, but all in all, a good experience.

My friends ordered the Banquet. Highly recommend, much better value for money. I order off the gluten free menu and was unfortunately very disappointed in both value for money and food quality.
