“One of its Kind in Madurai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Hi guys, i belong to Madurai and i am really happy to see such a restaurant in my home town. Thanks to the chef for introducing us to such a delightful cuisine. It definitely is one of its kind. i have tried this restaurant, trust me the food is absolutely delicious. But only thing that prevents me from going back to this restaurant is the price. If Phil's Bistro slashes the price a little bit, i definitely will consider becoming their regular customer.

“Authentic Italian/American cousine at this orthodox ancient temple city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Had a wonderful evening of learning & sharing with Dr. Rajasekar the leading Obstetrician cum plastic surgeon in Madurai city, at Phil’s Bistro….it is an awesome place at Madurai to taste “Italian/American cousins” ….spacious place, courteous people to receive, experienced people to serve….above all Chef..Mr.Phil’s personnel visit to the tables to enquire “how things are going”….. We enjoyed fish steak and Lamb steak with grilled veg & mash potatos followed by Phil’s chicken salad and ended with a nice desert of chef’s choice…the price for these are very much affordable…..it is a pride to this ancient orthodox temple city to serve authentic “Italian/American cousins”….it tastes just like the food I have enjoyed in US …..wishing Chef Phil all success in this city………..friends if you love to taste authentic “Italian/American cousins at this ancient city don’t forget to visit this place.

“Great food & great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Lovely meal in a cool, clean restaurant, with a good soundtrack. I had lamb shank - it was tender & tasty.We have been working in Oddanchatram the & came to Madurai to find some western food & service. Very attentive staff. Mocktails & brownies are the icing on the cake. You won't find many other places like this in India!
