Four of us dined at the Phoenix yesterday evening upon recommendation from an enthusiastic fan. My friends asked for pot stickers (good) and spring rolls (not so good) whilst we read the menu. We had half a roast duck (lovely crispy skin and moist meat), pea sprouts in garlic sauce, sliced fish (cod) with Chinese broccoli, and salt and chilli... More

This place is always packed during Sunday Brunch but the restaurant is huge so usually they can accommodate a table relatively quickly. Lots of different varieties to choose from. It's always busy so the food is always fresh.

Three families-12 people. We called to make a reservation, but when we got there we were not on the list. However, they got us seated within 10 minutes. We were seated in private little room with a giant table that fit all of us perfectly! So fun. We ordered about 25 plates and they were all really good. I was... More

My first time trying dim sum. Since first time, have no basis of comparison. Went with friends who love this restaurant. My friend did most of the ordering and i will say that everything we tried was very good. They pace the food nicely so you don't feel rushed. We made reservations, which they honored and took us to our... More

After battling traffic for what seemed forever, I was a little disappointed. First off, there were no push carts. Service was very slow although larger tables were getting lots of attention. I'm used to having a variety of sauces with dim sum, sadly there was none offered. The dim sum menu was limited compared to what I had read about... More

During walk through ChinaTown in Chicago, stumbled across this new restaurant, the Phoenix. Atmosphere was awesome (bright lights, tables galore) and the wait time was about 15 minutes. Food was delicious and wait staff very friendly and attentive. Would recommend this in highly!!

After a transition period with the new owners, the dim sum has been good and very consistent. Usually crowded on weekdays as there is a 30% discount. The dim sum menu has lunch dishes on the reverse but no discount. They are good to very good and the barbecue items are not bad. Service is still sub-par. The dinner menu... More

I've been craving this for awhile and this place definitely got 5 stars. The shrimps where big and fresh, the sauce amazing. Órdered some dim sum but the lobster sauce was my first choice and decided to finish it so I was too full for the dim sum.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
