Great place in same square as Lucio pizzeria. Had the starter rolls with mint which were excellent. Then had salt chilli squid and seasonal greens. Really good, light batter and al dented vegetables. Couple of stone & wood Pacific Ales made for a lovely meal. One mistake in the order but they brought the correct dish quickly and let us... More

I manage to book a table over the phone and it was ready when we arrived. We shared 3 dishes and all 3 of them surprised us for being so good! You can bring your own wine (which we didn't) and service is quite good (pouring water all the time). Delicious sauces, delicious duck pancake, really highly recommended (and the... More

This famous haunt has been a personal favourite of ours for many years. Upon visiting this week we noticed several subtle aesthetic changes and of course a raft of new staff across the restaurant. Finding out the establishment had changed hands, we still wanted to give it a chance. Unfortunately we found the quality and delivery of meals has substantially... More

This place is such a no-brainer: sure you've got to wait, but there's a pub on the corner so given them your mobile and go have a drink. Then come back for some serious Vietnamese deliciousness. Ingredients treated with respect for freshness and taste. Perfect preshow venue or just anytime really.

Such great reviews on so many different platforms. I was surprised when I came here that it was below average. The mixed fruit drinks were okay but the food was very ordinary with a hefty price tag

I've been to this place several times over the years at two separate locations. Food is always pleasing. And the restaurant is never slow! Order at the counter and the food is brought to the table. Everything tastes great - so fresh and the flavors and like no other.

I went for dinner here with two friends after someone recommended it. Even though we knew it was a 2 hours sitting, the lady said to us "If it was Ok to leave at 7:30 (so in 1 hour)" no it wasn't Ok, specially because they told us something different over the phone. The food was really good and fresh,... More

We had dinner over the weekend, even with the wave heat the food still really good! We started with the duck pancakes and continue with lots of delicious dishes, it was a while since the last time I eaten here, but the food still consistent and good! Quick service, make a booking before heading there and a go with friends... More

I visited Phamish with my daughter & her friends. We were lucky to get a table as there were 9 of us altogether. We all chose different dishes. I particularly like salt & pepper squid. It's so tasty. I also tried a chicken curry dish which was a bit hot. It's a B Y O restaurant so we took our... More

The best fried rice we ever had!!!! :') Endless thanks again for willing to serve 18 starving tourists who got lost around that neighborhood with 9 serves of fried rice in minutes (a pre-booking is compulsory for such a big group according to the restaurant rules) even though we arrived at the busiest time of the restaurant!

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
