We ate dinner here after a long day of exploring Phnom Oudong. The staff were very friendly, but the food was not served as fast. But it was really okay because the food made up for it after it was served! They served us superb amok and all the other Khmer specialties they had on their menu were splendid as... More

We both got curry dishes, both super good. The portions were good for how much we paid, which was about $4 each. Would recommend to any traveller who wants local or international food.

Food is unbelievable can't believe it isn't rated higher in Phnom Penh! So surprised when we found out the chefs are Cambodian. The western food was cooked to perfection! And the cheap prices only add to its amazingness!

Nothing better that sitting back watching the world pass by with a cold Angkor beer and feast of delicious Khmer food. Try the Amok and Lok Lak both exceptional. Great service and clean bathrooms. Thanks for having me

My brother and I both had the chicken amok - the best we had on our trip. Group of 8 and we all enjoyed our meals.

My sister and I just arrived from Nepal and went here after hearing about the good reviews. They didn't lie! Best veggie spring rolls we have ever had and the Thai yellow veggie curry was phenomenal! Portions are big though, we shared our meal and we still had leftovers. It's a small restaurant and look sober the road and onto... More

This is a massive cut above many of the other bars on the riverfront. Still quite tourist orientated but food is outstanding: we had the best spring rolls for brunch 2 days ago and came back today in the evening for a fantastic fish amok and vegetarian noodles. And more spring rolls. Not flash but really worth a visit

We took a tok-tok on the first night there and went to Karma. Great food at reasonable prices. On riverside, nice views. Knowledgeable staff, great service and very good food. If it is your first night and you still look for your burger you can have one at Karma, but they are great on Khmer cuisine. Drinks priced more than... More
