The food was great, the amok is a must. We sat on the second floor, on cushions to have dinner with friends. The Voingner from Argentina was excellent and at $18 per bottle, cheap for Asia. The musician was excellent. worth a visit.

The setting is really great and the service was good too, but the food was just plain bad. The fresh spring rolls we had as an appetiser was uninspiring. Then I ordered the steamed fish and it came with potatoes and carrots. This was a disappointment because I had expected something more 'Asian'. Potatoes and carrots don't strike me as... More

Our family of 10 enjoyed an excellent dinner at this Khmer Surin . The atmosphere is very pleasant, the service is attentive and the food was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the fish amok which was not only very tasty but beautifully served in small bamboo pockets. Prices are reasonable

Best food we had in Cambodia the whole week! Simply amazing, you must try the fish amok, the red curry, the sour soup. Although a bit pricier still very affordable.

We had lunch here during our trip to Phnom Penh. The place is cozy with Cambodian style decor. They have great fish amok. For me, it is even better than fish amok in Sugar Palm Siem Reap.

We loved the location and the food was just amazing! On the downside I have to mention that rice was charged extra (in asia...!) and taxes and services were added to the bill, too. That put us off a little bit, as prices were rather high, anyway - but the food was worth it...

We visited for lunch and for dinner on this trip. For both meals the food and drinks were delicious and well-presented. The atmosphere is a garden setting with lots of wood and Cambodian decor elements. Very inviting and conducive to conversation and a relaxing meal. Note that the restaurant is CASH ONLY, but fortunately an ATM across the street kept... More

This restaurant prides itself in Cambodian cuisine and they should. The food was fantastic and the price is fair. The only issue is that in an attempt to remain traditional they have decided to give you the complete experience and that means low chairs or in some instances no chair. Yes, I'm a Westerner but if I'm not comfortable and... More

I liked this restaurant! The food is good and even the fried ice cream cart in the entrance is really worth a try. The food was fresh, the decore agreeable and the atmosphere conducive to a relaxed night with friends. The Food was very fresh and to the untrained palate (like mine) seems like a slightly lighter version of Thai... More

This restaurant is well placed and has lots of charisma, heaps of memorabilia, scads of character, and loads of personality. What it lacks is service, tasty food and parking. We had ordered ahead, but only some dishes were ready; others took much longer. No one asked if we wanted drinks until we called a waiter from another part of the... More
