“Best fusion sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This excellent place offers some of the most innovative sushi on offer. The scallops and crunchy tuna are especially great - I will be coming back for more! The traditional sushi is good, but I would recommend any customer here to stick to the specials of they are looking for a truly fantastic experience.

“Good find”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We dined here during a business trip as we did not have plenty of time and there weren't many other choices in the area. Had the vegetarian sushi platter which was a safe bet while my colleague had a grilled salmon. No complaints.
Service was ok; just had the feeling that we were rushed to finish so they could seat other customers.

Recommended if you don't have much time and are stuck in that area.

“One of our favorite places”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We are lucky to live just down the road from Pham Sushi. It only took one visit for us to become regular visitors there. We've probably eaten there at least 50+ times in the last 2 years. The fish is always fresh and we found the staff to be pleasant. Not overly friendly or anything, but never rude. The food is always excellent and relatively cheap. It seems to always be packed on an evening so it's best to book in advance as the main restaurant is quite small. Be warned though, it's not a fancy place (minimal decor)... but if it's great food you're after - you'll find it here! My husband and I simply love this place..

“A gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

As a Barbican resident, finding this place was like finding treasure. The decor is nothing more than a greasy spoon cafe. The food though is something special, and you see it being prepared fresh in front of you. Since it's popularity seems to have overtaken it, you really should book if you don't want quite a wait. My top tip here, iorder the 'Dragon Roll'.

(They also do local deliveries which I am very grateful for)

“Embarrassed to have taken guests here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Staff were sullen and uninterested, food bland and not, in any way, authentic. Worse still - food didn't arrive, the wrong dishes were prepared and half the group were offered desserts just as the rest of us were getting the main courses. We'd taken guests there and it was hugely embarrassing. Never again.
