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

I ate at here because people here at TripAdvisor say this is the best Vietnamese in Sydney. I do agree that. My home is in Northern California, we have bunch of Vietnamese restaurants, but they can’t beat Phamish. This restaurant is serving varietal Australian quality materials with their Vietnamese ‘inspired’ cooking. Very tasty and process are quite affordable. Loved their... More

I had great hopes for this restaurant especially after rave reviews from friends. The flavour and freshness of the food certainly did not dissappoint. There was a hectic atmosphere in the air... and we found out why when firstly a staff member started clearing dishes from the table when clearly we were not finished with our meals. Later, we were...

We were fortunate to get a table quickly for a Friday night, although it was inside and I would recommend sitting outside as it can get noisy and stuffy. The service was pleasant, friendly and quick. The duck pancakes were fresh and delicious, as were the crab dumplings. The chicken plum sauce and the vegetables with rice were tasty and... More
