My kids get so excited when they hear we are getting Pelican pies. We all love them. The Khmer woman who always serves us is so happy and friendly and she gives my children free cookies. The fillings are all homemade and they have a good variety. Good for hangover days, or any day at all.

i cannot judge the pies. i ordered chunky meat pie and french fries for take away at the st 278 outlet. the cambodian lady asked me to sit down and then...turned to her cat, fed her, talked to her. that was when i left. obviously taking care of the cat was more important than attending a customer.

Had the steak and pepper pie there last week. The pies were really, very peppery and tasty. Good value indeed. Mainly take-away which is nice as I had to go to work. It is really hard to find quick take-out here that is not Khmer so I was very impressed.

Im a New Zealand guy, with years of eating the best pies in the world. I visited the pie shop this afternoon, and ordered a chunky beef pie, hot chips and coca-cola. Being greeted with a warm welcoming cambodian motherly smile I chose the chunky steak over the steak and mushroom pies. I decided to myself, that if the first... More

This pie shop was close to our hotel and seemed such a novelty we could not resist. We tried a few of the pies such as meat, steak, and chicken curry. We were a bit disappointed, but then we are in Cambodia after all. The pastry was very dry, and there was little gravy in the pies to compensate for... More

After weeks traveling in Asia, although the food is fantastic, sometimes something as simple as a meat pie can taste like a banquet. Being an Aussie ,finding this little shop made my day. The selection was great and the owner ( Australian of course) told me he's expanding his range of Aussie "Delicacies". Next visit I'm going back to see... More

Home made meat pies in Phnom Penh! You beauty. The meat fillings were tasty, the pastry just perfect. Didnt try the chicken pies but they looked great too. Man cannot live on rice alone. Great to get a taste from home.
