Loved the vibe, views and food. Our very first Cambodian amok was delicious. Cocktails and beer. What more could you want in life.

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.

The chicken amok is very good in this restaurant. Nice environment, and perfect location, good break from a stroll around the famous riverside area.

never had a bad meal here, but stick to the cambodian food. the western food isnt as good, but you shouldnt be here to eat hamburgers anyway (shame on me, i tried one, but no more). the fish amok is awesome.
