Best Indian food in Phnom Penh

Slightly out of the way on the far south end of St. 63 in its new location, but well worth the tuc tuc ride for superb high quality Indian food. Rich curries, fresh spices and excellent breads.

Ordered delivery. Two entrees, rice and nan. $25. Almost three dollars for a cup of plain rice. Entrees very small. Vindaloo so spicy that could not taste it, only the heat. Had too many potatoes and not enough chicken ,Tasted burnt. I believe the same owners own several restaurants that I have been to and all good. Surprised by the... More

The expensive restaurant on St. 63 is far away from the riverside and the typical tourist joints, located in a nicely designed and furnished space. The service is (overly) attentive, the food is nicely presented. A reviewer commented positively on the fact that they serve in little copper kettles and other metal containers. While this is true, and done in... More

I live in the area and walk by it all the time, but decided to pop in for a late-night dish of bread. I'm glad I did. It was a tasty experience. The food was a bit expensive, but the service was awesome and the food arrived quickly with no issues. I need to try the rest of the menu... More

I am satisfied with Indian meal served in the restaurant. These dishes such as curry were spicy, but the flavor was mild, unlike many Indian restaurant serves. The taste made my tongue pleased. Even if you don't like hot meal, you can enjoy this Indian restaurant. This restaurant does not stand in restaurant area. And it is a little difficult... More

I love indian food and visited several indian restaurands in P.P.. I can say Shiva shakti is the best. All menu is good, especially Chicken Mulligatawny Soup, Tandoori aloo, Chicken garlic Kebab, butter chicken curry are excellent. If you are pondering about dinner place, I recommend to try this restaurant once.

Unpretentious and perfectly casual, this place serves perfectly prepared Indian food. The staff is professional and they did everything they could to accommodate our slightly larger sized group. They have lamb, chicken, fish with all levels of mouth-watering (or smoking hot!) sauces.

Been a fan of Shiva Shakti for 12 years.Always excellent quality. Great service. New location on 63rd Street.Pricey for Phnom Penh but still the best bet for Indian food.
