For my birthday we were aiming for something truly special and willing to veer away from local fare for the evening. The room is huge, but beautifully elegant. It almost feels out of place. Service was impeccable and the rack of lamb was as tender as can be. The food has a somewhat modern take... read more

This restaurant has great atmosphere and the food is outstanding, comparable to any restaurant I've eaten at in Paris. Service could use improvement. Prices are quite high, don't go here if you're on a budget!

I usually have my business lunches at Open Wine, but the experience at Van's was far superior in every way. Better menu, better hospitality, better presentation. We visit Van's every time we visit Phnom Penh. Have loved the dinners. Now we love the lunches too!

Chose this restaurant for its convenience for my guest. The walk to the 1st floor is dark and gloomy. Whilst the set course lunch is decent, there are better restaurants around. However, conducive for private conversation, as the place is largely empty. Must have seen better days

We had Valentine's dinner at Van's and upon arrival was stunned at the setup in the garden. Gazebos with flowing white cutains giving each table a feeling of privacy and also a romantic setting. The staff were excellent as usual and we did not have to wait long for the service or food despite this being the busiest night for... More

On arriving at Van's you are instantly aware that you are somewhere special, away from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. The Restuarant whish is situated in an old bank is well appointed and you could well be sitting somewhere in Paris. The food and service were all of a high standard and we had a very enjoyable night.... More
