Varied menu. Small portions and overpriced. Service is great and it's exposure to NGO doing such great work in cambodia

Food here is top notch, the starters are made to share and everything we tried was good Their cause is worth supporting alone but you'll go back for the food

We visited this restaurant but we didn't have a booking and they happily fitted us in. The tapas style food was lovely. Most dishes are about $4-6 and you need 2-3 for 2 people so it's a bit more expensive for Cambodia but still great value. What's great is the service though, and of course the cause. Well worth visiting.

Great location with the Friends'n'stuff located next door. Food great and wonderful smoothies. That this is also a training restaurant for a highly regarded NGO makes it a must

Had 3 share plates and 2 two smoothies for about $20. Food was good but not amazing. Smoothies were great. Don't think it deserves #1 but worth checking out

Our food was very tasty when we popped in for lunch. The only reason I wouldn't rate it 5 stars was because of the price. My boyfriend has quite a big appetite so walked away fairly hungry as each small tapas style dish is the price of a main in other decent restaurants in the city so the price adds... More

This restaurant is part of network of restaurants in Cambodia that train local folks in how to serve picky Westerners (like me) and build a career path for themselves IN ADDITION to funding schools for the children of the community. We also ate at Romdeng, a sister establishment in the city that was also great. The food was great and... More

When looking at trip advisor for places to eat, you can't go past what's #1. So had my first meal in Cambodia here and I wasn't disappointed. Yummy zucchini fritters and a grilled fish and green mango salad. Everything was tasty and didn't have to wait long for the food. May have to go back and try different dishes as... More

Absolutely delicious food. We ate here twice and everything we tried was fantastic, can't recommended it highly enough. Staff are also good and it's for charity.
