Delicious!

Staff were super friendly and everything was reasonably priced. I had the Khmer Amok (with fish) and it was hands down the best dish I have ever tasted. We came here twice just so i could have it again. Highly recommend for anyone travelling in phnom penh!

The restaurant is located on the promenade of the river that flows through Phnom Penh. There are several bars and restaurant that dot the river front. We went to Karma - because, it had a lot of recommendations on all the sites. When we walked in - at around 1 Pm for lunch on a Sunday - we were the... More

This place is perfect if you want to try some local food cheap! It's right on the river front so you also get the view. Definitely try the Amok!

Me and my boyfriend chose to go to this place after reading the reviews from TripAdvisor. We were surprised to find the restaurant empty (it was during low season) when we arrived but decided to go in anyway as the reviews were very positive. We did not regret our action and some more people came in later on. The staff... More

Stumbled across this place when looking for more local cuisine. Sat outside with a beer and watched the world go by... it was brill. We also ate here on a couple of occasions, the curries, especially the Fisk Amok - were delicious! Quick and friendly service, and were not rushed out at all. Really nice atmosphere. They also have happy... More

Wow, is all I can say about this restaurant & bar in Phnom Penh. We happen upon this place whilst looking for somewhere to eat and all I can say that we kept going back and bring others from our tour with us.

So nice to have a variety of vegetarian options to choose from - especially with Khmer food. The veggie amok is great.
