Myself and my boyfriend have just dined here and I have to say it was probably the best meal we have eaten in Phnom Penh. We had been a little disappointed up until now with the food (probably didn't go to the right places) but this restaurant was amazing. I had the chicken madras and my boyfriend had the carbonara....

Many restaurants to try khmer food, but this one is a safe choice: It's cleaned, staff is gentle, food is delicious and it's easy to get here. The only bad part was persistent child street vendors. Even one who claimed he couldn't speak, only to speak when he realised we weren't buying it.

Had a fish & chips at this restaurant, it was nice and the portion wasn't too small. I would definitely visit again. BUT this place is not air conditioned , so hot & humid evenings will be a bit unpleasant.

Although there are a few vegetarian restaurants in Phnom Penh, some places claim they are vegetarian, yet still serve meat dishes. As a vegetarian, This can restrict the menu choices. However, you will find a wide selection of dishes to choose from at Karma. But probably it's best draw card is that is it right at riverside, along the southern... More

We stopped off here after reading the amazing reviews and were a little disappointed tbh. The restaurant served nice food and the staff were friendly. If that's all you are looking for then this place is amazing. Unfortunately we are fussy and are always looking for more.

Honest food at honest prices. Was quite cheap. Food was good for the price. My noodles were tasty, good amount of chicken, carrot cooked firm not soft. My brother ordered chicken amok. Had a taste and was good, much better than the one I tasted at Titanic the other night. Good service. Drinks prepared and presented well.
