The food is delicious.

This is my second visit to this restaurant. We found the food excellent except we were a little disappointed in the duck salad. The salad was great but the duck was a little on the tough side. All other dishes were excellent. The service is great. They are attentive without being pushy. I am... read more

We visited Sopheara after reading the many good reviews but was generally disappointed. The water tastes like it had chlorine in it. We waited for an hour and they only managed to get two spring rolls onto our table, the restaurant wasn't even busy! Tables that came later than us had food on their table. Wouldn't come back again.

We had not been to this restaurant for some time, but visited again on Saturday night to celebrate a friends birthday and I have to say we were sorry we had not found the effort to visit. The food was outstanding, in fact the prawns in red curry sauce is probably the best dish I have eaten, ever, anywhere, and... More

Magnificent tastes of South East Asia tantalize your taste buds at Sopheara's & the service is great..only a small restaurant but well worth the effort in visiting. Sopheara's won the best Indo-Asian award a few years back. We find ourselves going back as much as possible. This is a Cambodian Restaurant. Also the music is really soft so you can... More

We were a party of 8 and ordered a wide rang of dishes all of which were excellent and we all agreed that they were the best Asian dishes we'd had. They have a very extensive menu and meals were cooked to the asked for level of spiciness. The mild was suitable for the children in our group and one... More

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
