Still a good night out

I have been to Phamish many times over the years and it still maintains its great buzz and easy-dining atmosphere. The formula of ordering at the counter and simple semi-outdoor seating still works well and the staff are ever-smiling, friendly and efficient even when it is chaotically busy. The... read more

Situated in a great little spot amongst a whole bunch of cool restaurants. This was excellent. Service decidedly lacklustre. The specials and wine list were dropped on the table as we arrived. Being my first time there I had realised it wasn't table service. When I asked the server for wine I was somewhat laughed at -,which was a bit... More

The food here is just the best! While other restaurants close by may be close to empty - there is generally a queue outside Phamish for a reason. They'll seat you asap - you may wait a few mins - and it is certainly worth waiting for. Always fresh, always delicious - I wish I could dine there now. Favourites... More

Have been going here for on a semi-regular basis for more than 5 years. The high quality of the food, fresh ingredients and innovative menu (although it hasn't changed much) has kept me coming back, even though I have noticed the prices have gone up in the last year or two. The prawn and duck pancakes are my favorite. Seats... More

We ate here twice. The crab dumplings were perfectly cooked-crispy on the outside and piping hot and moist on the inside. Chairs are backless tripod seats so not very comfortable. Main effort of the restaurant is the quality of the food which was uniformly excellent. Wish we had something like this near to where we live. We would be regulars.

Came here around 8 pm the other day, unbelievable, half of the menu are gone. Duck pancake that we always ordered every time we came here gone. I can't believe they not prep much stock as they know it is popular. Im not complaining myself, people behind me and in front of me also whinge during placing their order. I... More

I last ate at Phamish several years ago. Finding a live slug in my food at our table of 6 I approached the owner who flatly stated "at least our food is fresh", turned around and walked away. To say the least, none of us has ever returned. Last night we were dining next door at Rosan, a fabulous izakaya... More

For nice comfort food that won't break your bank account this is the place to be from Roti Prata to Duck pancake for entree and for main salt and pepper squid to duck salad and other yummy food so do yourself a favor grab your friends and bring few bottles of wine for a nice dinner.

Dined here last night with my friends and was not very impressed. Food was good but the service was terrible especially a young asian waitress who was incredibly rude and the reason i wont be back. Clearing tables when we were still eating and drinking. Was told we needed to leave the table to a temporary table for ten mins... More

We went here based on a recommendation from a local. Took a bit to find it and when we did we were quickly seated. First drawback: the seats are tiny stools with no backs: sort of like little bike seats. Not really comfortable. The place is small with small tables packed tightly together. This produces a lot of noise and... More
