Our tuk tuk driver brought us there. Taste: good. Price ok for the quality offered. The restaurant is right beside the river. Would recommend.

The food was very nice and our waitress spoke very good English. So good we went back the next day for lunch and enjoyed a authentic Cambodian meal. Once again... More

Went here on a weekend night and the owners from Belgium were particularily welcoming. The waitress attentive but not intruding. It has very much the bistro feel from Belgium and France. The food is good but simply presented. Coffee was offered on the house. will go back for sure.

We weren't quite ready for dinner and decided to stop off on the front for a cold beer or two. We chose the Khmer Boran which I believe is... More

I have been in Cambodia and Thailand many times, a restaurant like this is hard to find. The best food, staff, and atmosphere I have found in a long time.

First and best Amok I had in Cambodia. The pepper beef was excellent. We had a long chat with the owner about the city architecture ( he speaks English and French). We are thinking to go back before leaving Phnom Penh.

We asked if we could come back and learn how to make them. The chef didnt speak English, but that was ok with... More
