First night in Phnom Penh

We visited Karma on our first night in Phnom Penh and was not disappointed. It is a small place on the riverfront, more of a small cafe rather than a restaurant. The food is good and tasty and the portions are fine too. When we were there it was happy hour so our total bill came to $11.25. This... read more

Would have to be one of the best restaurants in Phnom Peng centre. Service and food quality is great and the menu has a large variety to choose from. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This is the first place we went in Cambodia. We liked it so much that we wanted to go there every day but forced ourselves to try other places. They were also good but we had to come back here at least a few more times. Loved it!! Highly recommend the Yellow Tai Curry!!

This is the perfect place to enjoy high quality, traditional Cambodian cuisine along the riverside. The service is excellent and the menu is very affordable.

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....
