Square Meal Review of Phoenix Palace ?

Consistency is the watchword at Phoenix Palace, whose grand entrance and gussied-up interior add a lavish feel to the cavernous 200-cover dining room. ‘Excellent service' ensures customers get the best of a huge menu – more than 300 dishes – that runs from pan-fried foie gras with king scallops to a rich casserole of belly pork and briny mustard greens via whole sucking pig and spicy ma po bean curd with minced beef. At the weekend, dim sum is the real draw, pulling in the Regent's Park crowds and local Chinese families for minced pork and peanut dumplings, spring-onion pancakes, and pork and black-egg congee. A thriving takeaway business is kept discreetly to one side, allowing sit-in customers to revel in the old-school carved screens, tassels and flashing illuminated geegaws that make the Phoenix no ordinary palace.

  1. To celebrate (her ongoing unmarried status and therefore ability to receive free money indefinitely) Miss O organised the first proper big Chinese feast I've had since moving to London at Phoenix Palace. I know. 5 years of only having real banquets when I see my family. So guess what happens on this most auspicious day? I lose my sense of taste despite not having a blocked nose. MASSIVE SAD FACE. Texturally speaking, the stuffed lotus flower was excellent. And everyone else assures me that all the dishes were tasty, particularly the soup, prawns, lobster and Peking duck. Damn them.

    Dim sum is always great but it is better going with a group of friends for a weekend lunch! It means that you get to catch up with everyone and also share lots of different dishes! A variety of steamed, fried and oven baked dim sum was had, each having their own unique delicious flavour . My favourite was the mini onion pancakes. These were little round oven baked parcels with spring onion. The steamed vegetarian dumplings presented in the bamboo steamed baskets were good...
