Squaremeal Review of Pham Sushi ?

Great sushi isn't so easy to find outside ‘W' postcodes, so City workers and East London residents are right to seize upon Pham Sushi. Plainly decorated with magnolia walls, dark wooden tables and carvings, this tiny eatery offers an extensive and uniformly impressive selection of sushi and sashimi, plus trendier stuff such as octopus tiradito or turbot with pink shrimp ‘new-style' that wouldn't look out of place on Park Lane. In general, items such as chirashi (‘scattered') sushi are fresh and generous, though presentation is surprisingly slapdash. Most people come for raw stuff, but soups, noodles, rice dishes, bento boxes and some spot-on tempura add to the choice. The restaurant is licensed, but Pham's even tinier sibling across the way isn't – so drink beer, saké or green tea, depending where you are.

Recommended exclusively because of the quality of the food. I've eaten here around 5 times and each time the food has been memorable. Service is fine and the atmosphere and decor are average. However those are forgiven for the quality of the eating.

I really hate the term “Hidden Gem”. It is used by middle Englanders about the lovely trattatoria that they “discovered” in Chiantishire last August, which only the locals know about. As if the locals hadn't discovered it perfectly well by themselves thank you very much. Alas, I can think of little other way to describe Pham Sushi. It is a hidden gem. Well, it isn't really that hidden, but it is in the middle of Whitecross Market, which doesn't boast the most original of restaurants. There are some...

was introduced by a client as we could not get in to “nobu” one night, boy what a gem, this blows nobu out the water, this place is tiny, so getting table is tough, we sat at sushi counter, staff are friendly and attentive although atmosphere is a little quite for my liking but the food makes up for this. crunchy tuna rolls are to die for and are better than any roll zuma or nobu can come up with in my view. sashimi is fresh and tender. Hot food is good to, but is the sushi that wins the show, dinner...

Hidden behind the weekday bustle of market stalls in Whitecross Street is the calm oasis of Pham Sushi. It is neat and clean but not ostentatious and it serves excellent Japanese food – easily of a standard of many of its expensive Wet End brethren. It is no wonder that Pham Sushi is a regular haunt for the sophisticates from Linklaters and some other City firms as well as providing good value, authentic food for discerning locals. Being slightly off the City's usual beaten tracks it feels like a...
