Good staff, average food, simple place

Well located by the river. Food is average, which is not to say it's not good but no need to come for the food. Rather, it's a convenient place to drop by when you need a meal. The local food definitely has a Siamese accent. Staff are very friendly. The place is hot and dusty as it's almost... read more

As recommended by travel books, we tried this river front restaurant. The setting is very old and outdated. The various floor tires were installed over time, the furniture and cushions were wearing out. We ordered a fish dish and lok lak (beef). Both the quality and quantity were disappointing. The service was ok but certainly not the food. The price... More

After getting off the speed boat we needed to get away from the swarm of tuk tuk, drivers so we popped into the closest cafe, wow what a great choice. 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 had only been in Phnom Penh for a short while and had walked across the Independence Square and through to the river front and the sun was starting to fall. 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.

It was the tastiest Khmer food I have had in Cambodia. The prices were very reasonable, no more expensive than the average restaurant in... More
