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

The place demonstarted the owner's passion of quality and fresh foods. be there early to avoid run out of choices as it is very popular...it is the one of the best Asian foods in Sydney. It's busy but a nice little place to eat out with friends and family. I come here now and then, especially when I sick of... More

Love this place. From the duck pancakes to the salt & pepper squid, every dish is an explosion of fresh flavours. Prices have steadily gone up in the last couple of years but the quality hasn't faltered. There's a no-service policy which means you have to queue to order but that somehow adds to the anticipation. Well worth it

We frequently dined here when living in Sydney....probably been more than 20 times. Since moving interstate we always stop by when visit friends in Sydney. It's the food that brings us back. Amazing Vietnamese. Fresh. Full of flavour. The duck ride paper rolls are a must, as is the bo luc beef. All the dishes are fantastic. The service isn't... More

Having eaten at Phamish 3 or 4 times in as many months, we have found the food to be consistently good. Duck and banana blossom salad and the duck and prawn pancakes were 2 of our favourites, although we have never ordered anything that disappointed. A busy and vibrant atmosphere when you dine in - expect to see people standing... More
