Had lunch here while in Phnom Penh. Restaurant doubles as a hospitality training facility and this shows: staff go out of their way to make you comfortable. The food is good, though quality can be somewhat varying. The presentation is very good though and prices are low for what you get: Usd 2-3 for starters and usd 3-6 for mains.... More

I was expecting great things from this restaurant, but sadly, I felt let down... I agree with a previous reviewer "PF" that the staff are not properly trained and there seems to be a lack of mentoring. For instance, we were asked what we wanted for desert, as we ordered our main, which was a little odd. Don't get me... More

This restaurant is the training place of an NGO training underprivileged youth in hospitality among other things. But you don't have to go there "just to help": the food is amazing, with great service and in a very nice setting. Really a great restaurant...the social project makes it really one of the best you can find in Cambodia.

We wandered into Lotus Blanc one night and had a really lovely experience. The fish amok is delicious, and the service was absolutely perfect. We never had to ask for a drink refill or go hunting for the staff when we needed something. I recommend sitting upstairs where you get a bit of a breeze and can sit on cushions... More

This restaurant is serving good food at average prices. The menu is entirely Cambodian which is ideal if you are willing to taste the local specialties. The place is clean and the atmosphere very pleasant. I would definitely recommend it for people wanting to eat Khmer food.

I came by for an early lunch with young daughter. We tried the beef lok lack and seafood hokkien noodle. The beef lok lak was delicious but the hokkien noodle was a bit too salty. The service was very good. The waiters and waitresses communicates well in English.

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.
