Good food to reasonable prices

Nice family restaurant. Had a table near the streets, which was nice as it was an opportunity to see the street life while eating and drinking some good smoothies. The food was good, nothing special, and the prices was quite low (around 4-5 USD for a main course if I remember correctly). Friendly... read more

I visited this restaurant several times and each experience was just as great as the previous times. The people there are very friendly, and I made several friends while dining there. The dishes offered are very creative and very tasty. I highly recommend this establishment and can't wait to visit there again on my next trip to Cambodia.

I was compelled to write a review about this place after seeing some of the not so positive ones. What my party of three ordered was chicken curry, chicken amok and beef noodles - all tasted exceptionally good!! I am so surprised by some of the reviews here and only wonder what the people writing them ordered? Not only was... More

I visited the Boston restaurant in September 2015 for lunch. They have changed their name very recently from 'the chat n chew'. I was expecting high things as it is rated highly in lonely planet but I have to say I was a bit disappointed as the food was fine, but average - nothing to write home about. There are... More

As two long-term expats in Phnom Penh, we were introduced to this little gem by a friend quite some time ago. Since then, it's a regular for us, usually once (if not more regularly) each week. C&C is comparable in layout and atmosphere to many places in and around Riverside however where it sounds out is the quality of its... More

I've been coming here a couple of times a week for a few months now and I'm yet to be disappointed. The food is always delicious and the servings are big. The western dishes are especially good and the Beef Wellington is a stand out. They use Argentinian beef, enough said. The staff are always super friendly too.

My girlfriend and I went there last night after having heard good things. The place as such is rather dull although with some nice photos brightening up the place. Neither of us were very hungry and we decided to share the famous beef wellington and I was pleasantly surprised. Especially the red wine sauce (albeit more meaty than red wine-y)... More
