Asian, Chinese

Parramatta Phoenix


It seems like Phoenix has a small empire of Chinese restaurants around Sydney, mostly big restaurants in shopping centres. I have had many a meal at their Castle Hill location and always enjoyed it. So when I saw that they had opened a new restaurant Parramatta, I had to try it out.  They have a Yum Cha lunch every day with an À la carte dinner menu. The restaurant is huge, with hundreds of seats over two levels. It’s large size means there are always lots of carts going around with many choices of dish and there continuously being replenished with  new ones, so they are always fresh.

It’s only new but already very popular with lines out the door on the weekends.  All the food was good and it worked out at $30 a head.


Prawn noodles $10.50-  (my fav) so good I got two serves.  A soft noodle with prawn inside drenched in a sweet soy sauce.

BBQ Pork  $9.50 – sweet bite sized pieces

Dumplings $9.50 –  

Vegies $10.50 – I don’t know why that all Yum Cha places I have been to have these veggies in the most expensive category of dish, but you need some green with your meal so I always get them.

Egg tarts $5.80 – theses were excellent the pastry was light and crispy

Its a very big space

The restaurant has a view over the station (not that great but about as good as it gets is Parramatta)

    Another Phoenix? How many does that make now?
    That’s unusual bbq pork for yum cha; it looks more like sweet and sour pork.
    i don’t get the expense of the veges either; it’s just boiled or steamed veges with a splash of oyster sauce!

    What is wrong with the prices of dim sum in Australia (Sydney), and particularly the Phoenix restaurants? $9.50 for the prawn dumpling? OMG…. I was just in Hong Kong and it cost around $3. I think it is just a bit ridiculous.

    Joey – yea they seem to be everywhere now ! I believe they have 5 locations.
    Now that you mention it I don’t think i have had pork like that before at yum cha either..
    Its a yum cha mystery how the vegies came to be so expensive , like you say no reason why they should be….

    Auri – Sydney prices are certainly sky high these days…
