Unpretentious local restaurant with a definite khmer flavour. Substantial portions of good solid food with friendly service and a relaxing atmosphere. Good value.

I was getting tired of basic food, and asked a local where I could get some authentic Khmer flavors. They simply pointed down the street and so I went to Lemongrass. It is a very clean, comfortable nicely decorated restaurant, quiet. And cool (it was another sweltering day outside). I ordered a couple dishes that the menu said were traditional... More

Lemongrass is a narrow indoor restaurant with an intimate feel. A higher-class Thai restaurant with a fair selection of Khmer classics. The prices are pretty reasonable given the look of the place. The Thai foods taste is nice. But I do not like the desserts of Sticky Rice with Mango which they are making not nice.

Service and setting of this restaurant are great! Although no credit card payment. Food was ok but nothing great. Cocktails sound great but just don't quite do it. Prices for the ambiance and what it's trying to do are fair. Just wish the finished product would be better!

good food, nicely cooked and not expensive. Some of the dishes are excellent, for example Papaya Salad and Fish Cake, curry could be better and Pad Thai is good. Short wine list but not expensive. Honest place with warm environment, where you can eat good, and sometimes, very good.

In Pnom Penh nearly 99% restaurants claim that they give you the best thai experience or Khmer cuisine( to me Khmer cuisine is nothing but Thai cuisine with another name, everything remains the same) Here, the flavours are amazing, we had soup, salad, thai curry and would say that there are very few place which serve such delicacies with a...

Authentic cambodian and thaï dishes with large variety of beverages. You need to order steamed rice in addition of your main dish. All dishes are well-served. Average price per meal 5.50USD. This restaurant is located in the Sisowath Quay area and the customers are mainly westerners.
