The good: Service (for an Asian joint) & chicken wings. The not so good: Dang parking! LucLuc beef came cold. Noodle and Soup (#A I think) came in too salty! Special fried rice was more like carrots and chinese sausage. Fried rolls came out soggy. About the wings: They are good (garlic with a bit of sweetness) when dip with... More

I've been coming to the restaurant for years and it never failed to impress me. Butter beef and chicken wings are certainly great, especially the pepper lime dipping sauce for the wings. My other go to items are the squid balls with seaweed (you can taste chunks of squids), the beef rice with fried egg as well as the lychee... More

One of my all time favourites, the chili squid and the chicken wings are amazing. And the butter beef!

What a popular place! Very busy since it was a Friday night. Met up with a former college mate, her son and nephew. Couldn't stop eating and raving about the Oyster Cake--I finished most of it! We had two orders of their chicken wings and polished it off.

Butter beef, chicken wings, moo moo shakes, and #6 noodles were all absolutely stellar! The wait was atrocious, over 40 mins at 2pm and had to pretty much push your way into see the hostess but it was very worth it. The service was slow and scattered but they are all running their butts off trying to get to everyone... More

I ate here alone for dinner, yet I still had to wait for 45 minutes before being seated. There is a large variety of Vietnamese/Cambodian dishes to choose from. I was a little overwhelmed by the options, so I asked my waiter for his recommendations. I ended up getting a beef rice platter and a "small" portion of chicken wings... More

We love coming here as a family and we can never get enough of the fried squid, sweet and sour fish soup, and beef carpaccio! Highly recommended. Come off hours, otherwise, be prepared to wait in line for a long time!

I am usual not a guy who is waiting 45 minutes for a table, but my friends told me it is worth it. They were right. We had 6 different items on the table and ALL of them were excellent. I special liked the frog legs, I didn't have any for years. It was amazing how many people were waiting... More

I love Phnom Penh! It's a must go place when I visit Vancouver. They have the best chicken wings in town, and the beef on rice with egg is amazing (#35 or 38)!! I also like their lychee drinks and Vietnamese coffee. The restaurant doesn't take reservation, and there is always a long line up.
