We went early evening so no real atmosphere but... Staff friendly and food gorgeous. We had Amok fish and prawn, served in coconut shells. Tofu satay which was delicious. The Rose wine was pretty good too.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here and the atmosphere was great. The spring rolls were the best we had in Phnom Penh! The location is a little out of the way but definitely worth it.

The restaurant was recommended by the hotel. It is in a quieter part of the city with modern decor. The food was excellent with quality ingredients and just the right amount of spices. Great service accompanied our first cambodian meal. Thoroughly recommended

Our hotel directed us to the Sugar Palm. We were not disappointed. It is not in the middle of the heavy traveled tourist area (Pub Street). It is set off the main road behind the Park Hyatt. The dining room is on the second level and in an open air environment. We started with a couple of local beers (Kingdom),... More

Upstairs tables overlooking the street are a great place for a beer and a bite of very good food. Sugar Palm is in the heart of the action on a street filled with shops on the "upscale" side, but not offensively so. You can be confident in the cleanliness of the place and food safety here, and it's walking distance... More

We ate here on recommendation from the owner of White Mansion Hotel. This restaurant is upstairs in a colonial style house. A pleasant spacious dining room. Good clear menu. We had noodle salad and the best fish amok we have had during a week in Cambodia. Amok is the national dish of Cambodia and is meat, fish or vegetables in... More

Dined here with colleagues and upon arrival we all loved the setting in the old colonial villa very much. Very historic and authentic. There are lots of options on the menu and the prices very reasonable. Everyone loved the Fish Amok .

We went to their old location by mistake and so were a little short of time when we got there ... they took care of us in 40 minutes! The fried rice was delicious and they make a great caiporoska.
