Reviews of Phat Dat Restaurant
Good customer service, nice clean premises - they're the newest kid on the block when it comes to Vietnamese cuisine and the ubiquitous Pho. They're in a good location on Chapel Road (South), however, this puts them in direct competition with four other Vietnamese eateries within a couple of minutes walk of each other literally. We were here for Sunday lunch (our first time) and the restaurants was not full. There were ample comfortable seating and with elbow room unlike others where seating is a little squeezy. The room was air-conditioned and a welcome climate from the heat, dust and noise. There was ambient music from the TV playing a Vietnamese songstress concert. Service was prompt as expected and friendly. There was a laminated 'specials' colour menu with pictures of dishes often ordered and a printed (or photocopied) black and white stapled paper menu (no pictures). A little odd with the menu presentation but understandable - probably still testing the market and a more permanent menu would be forthcoming. Looked like good value for money as many dishes were around the $10 mark.
The table service was attentive and satisfactory. We were able to quickly place our order - all beef noodle soup - yum! Portion sizes were good and satisfying, although one wonders how different is a small from a large besides the bowl as we didn't see a very obvious portion difference. The beef noodle soup was not the best that these taste buds have experienced but felt home-made - it's nice.
Overall it's good but they haven't won me over yet - perhaps another visit to try other dishes. We shall also see if they have adjusted any of their dishes to win the market - with eateries customers definitely vote with their taste buds (and feet).
I've tried Vietnamese Soup in numerous restaurants. The soup and other meals served here are by far the tastiest and most traditional. It is a family run business and they are most friendly, welcoming all who enter. Phat Dat is a regular place my friends and I meet at, and we just find ourselves back there without incident. I highly recommend this restaurant and no other place even comes close. Jeannie
Great tasting Authentic Vietnamese cuisines that left my taste buds wanting more! My partner and I enjoyed the aromatic seafood soup and Phat Dat free range chicken Pho soup. These soups are easily digested in the early mornings, at lunch or dinner. My most favorite all time dish is the combination crispy fried noodles! All dishes on the menu are reasonably priced (most were under $10!!!) great for every day consumption if you cant be bothered cooking for two. The team provided great service, fast and friendly so don't take my word for it, go there and try out the menu for yourself !
New, nice, clean and great customer service. They have creamy cuppuccino and hot chocolates. One of the specialties is the seafood anchovies noodle soup. They also have bite size spring rolls that are home made and a very tender juicy pork chop steak. You even get to watch TV whilst eating.
What a nice place. Brand new great atmosphere. The food is really yummy and comes out super quick plus its sooo inexpensive. I really like this restaurant as it is much nicer than the other Vietnamese restaurants in the area. Go and check it out, I recommend the crispy chicken. yum yum yum!
