Sublime french dining in most elegant Asian setting

Van's is located in the beating heart of Phnom Penh and is an oasis. The atmosphere is serene, elegant and the food is extremely fresh and well prepared. The choice of menu is surprisingly large and all dishes are totally french as in Paris with a touch of Asia here and then. I ate the best sales... read more

We were looking for a special place to dine while in Phnom Penh and definitely found it in Van's. From the historic setting, the intimate ambiance, the exceptional cuisine & wine list, and attentive staff, it was a night to remember....and to look forward to again should we ever return to Phnom Penh!

This is the best spot to eat in Phnom Penh for sure. A French Master chef, a gracious host, impeccable service and most importantly excellent French cuisine. A must for every foodie that hits this town. Would love to come back here and also check out their amazing roof terrace! Ps their grand mariner soufflé is to die for.

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 on classic French, but somehow,... 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
