What's Next Victor?

I've been a regular customer of this restaurant in all of its incarnations, Chinatown, New Jersey, East 40th Street, and was stunned when this BYO restaurant asked $3.00 for ice to keep the beer cold. What's next Victor, charging for the ice in the ice water, or how about charging for the glass itself? Oh, the food (?), it's still good but not as good as when mom and dad ran the place.

Convenient place near Grand Central for garbage service

Worst food and service experience ever. The most rude and arrogant manager of any restaurant we've ever been to. We were one of only three customers, yet they took forever to come to us and wouldn't let us use a chair to put our coat on since ""people would need the chair"" -- totally classless.

Great food and a great time! Happy Chinese New Year

After reading all the reviews on citysearch for Phoenix Garden, I was expecting good food, but I was waiting to either be thrown or cursed out by a waiter, or rushed through a meal.\r \r Instead we enjoyed great food, from the soups to the dumpling and beef satay, through the main dishes. The staff could not have been nicer. We were given a table close to the door and asked to be moved to a table further inside ... view more

Great food great friendly service

the food is great here. the waiters and waitresses are helpful and all friendly. cash only. no credit cards. as long as the nice brother (the thinner one) is there all is well. the fat brother is mean and unhappy, maybe because of his weight. the other reviewers are wrong about the food and service. i have been there four times in the last three weeks and everything has been teriffic.

Food 3 stars : welcome & service 0 stars

Arrogant. Unfriendly. Unhelpful. Sad, isn't it. And worse, the staff don't seem to realise the impression they create.\r \r I was so upset by the way my guests were treated, I paid the check but left no tip. A few minutes later, waving the check, an older lady followed me into the street , I expained briefly why I'd chosen to leave no tip. She scowled, and scurried back into the restaurant.\r \r A few minutes l... view more

What a find I have not tasted chinese food this good in over 30 years. I love the place and I really love the people.So check your ego at the door and try being a human being and perhaps you just might be surprised at the wonderful service you receive. Thanks for the memories... Helen

I don't know where the negative reviews come from

I have been here twice in the past 2 months and I will be coming back again.\r The food is good- esp for the price. I had the salt and pepper prawns and they were delicious.\r I have never been treated badly, the staff has been very nice on the occasions I came.\r You can also bring your own wine and beer which is wonderful in these tough times. \r \r You should try it out, you'll enjoy it. Remember that it is c... view more

Terrible Food

The food is awful and when i went to the bathroom there were rodents running around. Service is terrible and the owner is extremely rude. I will never go there again.

Good food, service not NEARLY terrible enough

Wife and I, Chinese Food lovers, lived in the neighborhood for years, heard the food was good but the service was terrible. Well, the food was good, the spare ribs in a honey sauce especially, but the service was just kinda bad? sorta mean? not the outright misanthropic torture chamber we were expecting. The owner wasn't exactly happy to be their, but neither was he a scowling martinet, nor was the wife an invecti... view more

Great Restaurant! Great service! Great price! Beats Chinatown!

My whole family has been eating here for many years. I don't write reviews but read them from time to time and thought I should let anyone who cares know that the food is great, the service is great and the owners (also a family) and wait staff are some of the nicest people around. They don't suffer arrogance and aren't phony but are good hearted and friendly. The food is superb and the price is right. The Pepper and... view more
