When visiting Sydney we always try to eat at Phamish. It's Vietnamese food at its best. The staff are very good here & managed to squeeze us in. There's lots of choice here. This time I tried salt & pepper squid & blue crab dumplings....More

It feels like a street food place, you order at the counter and get served, but what you get is great and delicious. It does not break the bank and everything I tried was good, no great.

Absolutely brilliant meal. Nothing fancy about this place but the food makes up for it. The crispy skin chicken, pork belly, spring rolls were all to die for. A little on the pricey side for the setting. Would return however and recommend.

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.
