The place has its own charm and ambiance. To begin with, the starters were ok. Tried the Mushroom and Pesto Crostini In Focaccia, which could have been better in terms of preparation, presentation and portions.

Lazily prepared party food , pizza was a poor primary school effort at cooking class , and potato wedges were christened with some kind of spray cheese that made me curse humanity

There are very few places where you get to meet the chef and have him personally recommend dishes according to what is fresh everyday....Madurai is definitely lucky to have Phil!

The first Italian American Cuisine at Madurai. Each dish is prepared and served individually from the finest and freshest foods. Make your selection from Phil's Bistro's extensive menu of Italian and American cuisine and enjoy one . It is located in the heart of the city - KK Nagar. You can get all non-vegetarian dishes here.

Chef Phil serves one of the best chicken steaks. Way to go chef . Your chicken steak with brown sauce was out of the world and I think it's one of the best I had. All the Best.

Delicious Italian food at Phil's Bistro made expertly. Pasta al dente! Great sauces. Spicy shrimp with garlic toasts. Risoto made perfectly. All this in delightful Madurai. Who would have thought. Seek out this wonderful dining spot for a most enjoyable meal served by a very congenial staff. Liquor is not allowed, so have a cup of great espresso instead.

Thank Gene S
