Our family has been dining at Sopheara for years and food is always the same high standard .It is a true gem. (Not sure where the photo up the top came from as this is definitely not Sopheara. They have a beautiful Cambodian decoration) The fish amok was one of the nicest meals I have had in ages. All family... More

This restaurant came recommended by a couple of acquaintances. A party of six of us dined there on Sunday evening and found the service and the food to be really great. We all agreed we would come back again as it is so nice to have a quality restaurant close to home.

This place is tucked away in suburban Auckland which is a shame, as it is a great place to eat. Plenty of variety on the menu at very good prices. Staff are very attentive. Very we'll worth the time if you are out in Botany and looking for a decent restaurant.

This restaurant is a long way from us but we manage to come once a year from Wellsford. This is the third time we have dined here and each time it has been a real pleasure. The curry saramarn is a firm favourite but we have tried different dishes from the extensive menu on each occasion we have been at... More

We eat here whenever we're in the area. Excellent Cambodian food, fairly authentic, friendly service, generous portions, pleasant ambiance and incredible value, especially for lunch. Definitely our favourite Auckland restaurant. Not as well-patronised as it deserves to be, its location doesn't help but it's only 10 minutes from the motorway.

I am going to Cambodia in a few months, so thought I would check out Sopheara to get a taste of what to expect! Our family eat a lot of Thai and Vietnamese food, and we found the food here exceptionally good. The drinks were also great, especially the fresh mango juice! Friendly service, lovely ambiance and layout, huge range... More

Excellent, authentic Khmer food. We are regulars here, despite it being a long way from our home on the North Shore. Having been to Cambodia a few times, it is definately authentic. Our Khmer friend here on Holiday was also impressed. well priced, and excelllent service. Worth the trip out.

This is a great little restaurant now across from the sprawling Sir Barry Curtis parl. Unassuming and simple with very tasty and well presented dishes that just might even be authentic Cambodian (not having been there I can't confirm). The favors are fresh and clean and with very reasonable prices this makes for a great easy dinner sharing a bottle... More

This is a great place to eat with family or friends. Don’t be fooled by the unassuming outside, this place is a gem. With the best flavours from Cambodia, you can enjoy some amazing taste sensations with curries and my favorite spicy squid. The service is always friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

We have been to Sopheara's several times and the quality & consistency is very good. Whole deep fried Snapper in Tamarind Sauce is fantastic and their spicy squid or prawns are hard to beat. We have always been made to feel welcome by the owner/hosts and look forward to returning to test the rest of their menu.
