Good reasons for dining at the recently opened Pheast in Manuka include large serving sizes and excellent value for money on Mondays and Tuesdays when meals are two for the price of one and include a choice of two sides (chips, creamy mash, salad, vegetables).
In warm weather there is pleasant, relaxed outdoor seating and the restaurants is open for breakfast. lunch and dinner, 7 days.
Pan fried crispy skin salmon with chardonnay garlic cream sauce $26, Chicken kiev with sundried tomato pesto $24,
Chicken breast schnitzel 280gm $21 Single slow braised lamb shank $24
Whole sole grilled (special) $20 T- bone (special) $20
However, if dining as a group it is worth considering sharing dishes. This helps accommodate the large serve sizes and still stay comfortable and also assists the kitchen who may find it difficult to keep track of a large number of orders.
For a group of six the smoked salmon linguini, prawn & chorizo linguine. pheast deluxe pizza and smoked salmon & avocado pizza with sides of vegetables and salad (two sides are included with each meal) would work well.
On a Monday or Tuesday night this shared menu would total $46 ($8 per person).
No BYO, but glasses of wine start at $7 each.
