Description: Metro Hassakan (formerly Cafe Metro) is the place to meet in Phnom Penh. Stylish and cosmopolitan, it offers Asian fusion small plates and expertly mixed cocktails, while floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a wraparound patio provide an unobstructed view of the river. Start the day at Metro with a classic breakfast and continue it with a selection of more than 20 small plates like Chinese crispy short ribs, Tequila black pepper prawns, Peking duck pancakes and king oyster mushrooms. The menu is a stylish fusion of Asian and Western dishes to please any palate.

Friends took us here and Sharon and I loved it so much we dropped in on our last night in Cambodia for a farewell drink. The things that make this place so good are the girls who look after the tables (professional, happy, really efficient, great), the location right on the riverside, and the food which was some of the...

Good location overlooking the quay. Food is tasty and decently priced, portions are small. Service was a tad slow, and they seemed somewhat distracted by other stuff happening outside.

Dear Franklin, Thank you for visiting Metro at Riverside, we are happy to learn that you enjoyed the view and the food that you had. It can happen, especially during weekends, that we expect high levels of activity. This unfortunately can sometimes translate into a slower service, as our staff then needs to attend to both our indoor dining space... More

Lovely small plates restaurant on the riverfront. The menu had a nice variety of fusion style dishes - we shared the garlic green beans, bacon and egg fried rice, and ginger soy fish along with some wine and beer. Everything was very flavorful and tasty. And while the bill was slightly higher than our other meals (read: $27) it was... More

I've become a regular for drinks here because it's perfect for going and have a chat with friends. The space is just cozy enough for conversation but not cramped or loud, the staff is amazing accommodating.

Only go on the weekends for breakfast with the family. It only opens at 930am, which is too late for a place serving breakfast, but when it is open they have the best eggs Benedict in town. A bit pricy for what you get at any other time but generally a good place to get good food through the years.

I have been here many times whilst on holiday, or travelling through Phnom Penh. The coffee is good, the food is good, the cocktails are good, and the chips (French fries to the non English world) are fantastic. I have eaten many other things here too which have also always been brilliant. The restaurant is situated on the riverside with... More

Great service, staffs were very pleasant and knew exactly what to do to make you feel welcome and relax.Food was fantastic.We were there at lunch time so it was noisy and crowded, people get off from office break. A little expensive but overall the restaurant was nice and food was great.
