It did take some finding but there is a sign on the street and just go to the end of the lane way. Don't be put off by the location as it is well worth the effort. Great burgers!

We just ate dinner here and loved it! We arrived excited for a burrito or chimichanga but found out it was burger night - free upgrade to double burger or chilli cheese fries. We got a chili cheeseburger and an 'angry chicken' burger with the chilli cheese fries and they were both delish. Service was great and cocktails were cheap... More

This restaurant should be called fat cats. It is the greasiest burger I have ever had and inedible. Meat paddies fell apart and had oil dripping from all sides. Fries have been cooked multiple times and too soggy to eat, I guess the name of their burger was the only truth to it all quad druple bypass, I am sure... More

Fat cats at the alley? Of course! You can double any of our burgers, we call this a Fat Cat Burger. Our burgers are extremely popular, and we normally receive only compliments about them. The patty is made from Australian beef and should be nice and juicy. It is cooked on a griddle so hardly any oil is used when... More

The Alley Cat is really hard to find, but once you do it was worth the effort to do so. The food here was very good, really good Mexican cuisine. The only draw back to this place is that it is almost unbearably hot for lunch since there is no A/C, only ceiling fans, so it is very hot. Not... More

We can be a little difficult to find, so thanks for taking the effort. The new hotel in the alley has made it easier though. From the corner of st19, and st178 (or anywhere near the palace or national museum) look for the extremely tall brown building, we are in the same alley. You visited during a heatwave in the... More

Hands down the best Mexican food we have had here so far. It's not a large place and the seating is all large booths but the food is reasonably priced for the amount you get. They play live music on Sat. night and it's loud since the restaurant is small. My favorite so far for Mexican and since it's my... More

Great for a big feed. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the burrito is excellent. A little bit more expensive than some other restaurants in Phnom Penh, but the food was awesome.

First of all let me tell you that this place resides at the end of a small alley so could be hard to find.But it's worth it!!!!!!! With my wife and I being massive Mexican food fans we tried as much of the menu as possible and were not disappointed. Every meal was absolutely authentic and amazing tasting.My personal favorite...

We stayed next door at the Blue Lime and came in here for dinner. It standsout first of all for having such a southwestern motif and secondly for serving a very southwest menu.
