We decided to give the Phoenix another try as it seemed the reviews had gotten better. Nothing has changed since our last visit over five years ago. Décor still the same, old, dark & musty smelling. The buffet looked like it had been updated, better lighting and actual steam rising off the dishes. We didn't try the buffet this time... More

Love ordering the diner for 2, it offers a great selection of dishes, all tasty and fresh. Veggies are cooked to perfection and there is no better chow mien anywhere!

We've had take out from here a number of times and to be truthful it's hit or miss. It also depends on what kind of Chinese food you are use to as north American Chinese food differs in each region of the country. Every so often we try it again

"The best Chinese food I've ever had!" Said a friend of mine from Portland! This out-of-the-way restaurant (up the street from the Post Office where there used to be a bowling alley!) is an institution for locals in Ladysmith. Great Smorgasbord every night. Richard is a charming host!

I never write reviews, good or bad. This time I feel compelled to make one. Three words: Worst Smorgasbord Ever! Had two bites and complained and the owner said too bad, you should have ordered off the menu. Asked if I could now and he said no because I already tried the smorg. Polite yes, arrogant in the extreme. Tries... More

Not only was our order bad, Richard would not give us our money back, he could not believe we did not like his food, when we returned it he gave begrudgingly gave us a new order, which was slightly improved, he was rude and arrogant, for that reason I would NEVER go back, He needs a wake up call ...

I too, am very surprised with these reviews - we have always enjoyed the food and the excellent service at the Phoenix. We live on the outskirts of Ladysmith and find it's definitely worth the 20 minute round trip drive to pick up our order. The owner is very friendly, as are the staff, on occasions when we've gone in... More

Ate there tonight. Can't say we were overly impressed. Buffet was $13.99, but there was not much to choose from. The food was average, but not one thing we ate was really good. I have had worse, but that doesn't make me rate this one any higher. Thinking we won't be going back any time soon.

I am very surprised by these reviews. I live near Sidney BC, with access to all the terrific Chinese restaurants in Victoria, but whenever we travel up-Island to camp in our RV in Chemainus we always drive up to Ladysmith for dinner at the Phoenix Restaurant on a Saturday night. We have been coming here for about 12, maybe 13... More
