Phoenix Asian Restaurant and Bar has only been opened for 3 months but it seems to have hit the ground running with young enthusiastic owners and staff happy to fulfil your ever need without being imposing. The group of 15 hungry foodies devoured a range of dishes from flying prawns- prawns wrapped in fried potato which was crunchy on the outside with a fresh sweet prawn on the inside. Prawn steamed dumplings, boneless kfc fried chicken coated in a sweet chilli sauce which we would have loved to come in a bigger size - so so yummy. We also tried all of the bao buns. The bao buns themselves were so soft, fresh and fluffy best I’ve had to date and the pork was moist and had an awesome crackle, absolutely perfect. The soft shell crab and tofu bao was also great with crispy coatings and juicy insides. The silken tofu with mango salad is a winner and so is the soft shell crab salad that refreshed the palate before tackling the hot pot mussels. Presented in replica cast iron pot the tender morsels had the most amazing lemongrass and coconut liquor although l did add a little salt when downing the liquor with my rice. A dish l hope they continue on the menu when in season. We also ate the beef ribs, Singapore noodles, Mongolian chicken stir fry on a sizzling dish, Korean chicken hotpot that had a mild kick but could use a little more kimchi, beans with walnuts and cashews that some thought were a little salty but not all and a few dared to have dessert. All said the ice creams were full of flavour especially the chocolate which is complimentary considering it came from an Italian who is a bit of a ice cream connoisseur. The fried ice cream was also said to be delicious. The Ambiance of the store was welcoming with adequate lighting but could use a little more character however it’s floor space does allow access for those with a wheelchair although I’m not sure if the had a disability restroom. The restaurants bar and amenities were clean and well catered. I’m definitely looking forward to their official opening and will return to try the tartare beef, salmon and other dishes they are trying on their menu. Worth a visit before It gets too well known.
Food was beautiful well presented just came to fast and all together so some got cold before it could be eaten. Also show client Bill don't just quote an amount . Would eat here again
