The restaurant teaches underprivileged youth skills in the hospitality industry. The kids are adorable and really good at what they do. The food is delicious, save room for the Créme Caramal - a real treat!

We absolutely loved this place. The food was great but the service and staff is what made this restaurant stand out. We are a couple who have been travelling round the world for 12 months so far, we eat out every night and this was a stand out experience. Our waitress, Hoeurk, was so special. She had a constant, genuine... More

I'm going to give this restaurant a very good. They have two locations and we visited both - one for lunch and the other for dinner. The concept is fantastic and we enjoyed talking with the staff members and hearing each of their stories so far. As mentioned by other T/A reviews it can be a little awkward for some... More

We truly enjoyed the two branches of this restaurant (one at Rue Pasteur, the other one at the NGO Pour un Sourire d'Enfant. Staff were enthusiastic, and the most attentive you could imagine. Only the menu was kind of short, and to round it off, some options were unavailable.

The staff were friendly and professional. The food very tasty, beautifully presented and good value for money. I would recommend the fish with... More

I tracked down this restaurant, and had such a lovely meal and experience went back the following day! The combination of the training restaurant for these young people and the really good quality food makes it a perfect choice. I went for Khymer cooking on both occasions - but finished off with pineapple flambé, prepared by my waitress for the... More

I didn't have to wonder far to find this restaurant. Surrounded by bigger chains of restaurants, this one seemed quiet but we thought we'd give it a chance. The restaurant's waiters and waitresses are all trainee staff who are from a disadvantaged background, under a scheme which will help them gain qualifications and job opportunities. They were all eager to... More

Stayed here for 4 nights..no complains..attentive staffs.comfy beds..love the balcony..the pool..although one thing could use some improvement..the breakfast buffet spread could do with a lot more variety..otherwise a great of choice of hotel! Close to town..a tuk tuk ride to town will take 10mins approximately...perfect for a family stay!
