The staff was really nice and welcoming. I had the carnitas and pollo hard taco and it was delicious! The ingredients were all so fresh. My boyfriend had the wet burrito, he said it was so good and just wish that it was bigger cause he was left with wanting more. Hahaaa I also had just made it in... read more

Walked out of the Okay Boutique Hotel and heard live music coming from this little place a couple of doors down. Meandered in as we love a band. Wasn't long before they finished, they had been on for 3 hours. Caught the last half hour! Ordered a meal which wasn't too bad, had a couple of drinks and left. A... More

Solid option if you're craving western cuisine - the menu concentrates on tex mex, burgers, etc. Tucked away down a side street and not the easiest place to find.

I have been eating at Alley Cat for about two years, early days there were a few glitches which made me abstain for six months, however I was most pleased to find out that in the inteeerim they had lifted their game considerably. There are some favourites that I have with great regularity as they are basically unique to this... More

Wow. This was seriously one of the best Mexicans of my life. OMG my taste buds are still dancing. This isn't your boring Tex-Mex burrito joint. This is amazing and inspired cuisine. Amazing. So far best meal in our travels for sure.

I recently visited this establishment and was let down not only by the food but what I saw after their dog seriously BIT a customer. The customer was actually bleeding after the bite and the owner Dallas tried to insinuate it was the customers' fault somehow! What an arrogant buffoon. First of all, I love dogs BUT, a dog that...

This happened 2 months ago. The dog no longer lives at the Alley Cat. At the time that this happened we had signs in the bar saying don't pet the dog, the customer in question knew this but decided to stick his hand in the dogs face anyway. We didn't have any iodine to offer the customer, or we would... More

Situated next to the Okay Boutique Hotel in Street 19z, Sangkat Cheychumnas | Khan Daun Penh, Phnom Penh this tiny little cafe is trendy and neat. We ate at an odd time but that was no problem. The waiter who is obviously still learning the ropes took our order just fine and the food came out no time at all.... More

Nice little bar/restaurant tucked in an alley! Great atmosphere. Everything we tried on the menu was wonderful. The Lomo Saltdo was the best dish.

Food was a little spicy but absolutely tops. Not exactly a family atmosphere though. If you like Mexican go.
