PHD is one of many Vietnamese restaurants in Marrickville that are getting frequented by a lot of customers. The restaurant has a limited space with just enough room for tables and chairs and passageways, but not enough to make you feel comfortable. The red-laden ambiance which I suppose would give the restaurant its Asian atmosphere makes the shop feel even smaller.
I was brought to this restaurant by my friend. A lot of people there ordered their pho (noodle soup), but we decided to venture out a bit and had their tomato rice with two dishes from the menu. We ordered the chicken omelette and a fried eggplant. The omelette was quite alright but the eggplant was quite salty and was very soggy, like it was taken out of the fridge and reheated. Both the dishes were highly flavoured that would make you thirst for quite some time.
The rice also came last and we actually had to ask for it before it came. The rice was very lumpy and was definitely not fresh.
Those dishes weren't so cheap either, and we regretted we didn't stay on the safe side of just buying the noodle soup. Perhaps they might have been really good at just exactly that like everyone here said.
