Foods ok

Foods ok. Not the best lap lok around. And we were approached by beggars' while we were there. Cheap drinks and food is cheap with good portion sizes.

I understand that is a cooking school! Not sure, however, who is doing the teaching. When my husband and I dined there one evening for dinner, we were both very disappointed to say the least. Neither the drinks, food, or service in this little place is ready for prime time. I would not return!

Went there for lunch and ordered a selection of about 4 dishes, all of which were good and one in particular fish with basil leaves was excellent. We were passing by a couple of evenings later and noticed that there was a board at the restaurant advertising bus travel, such as you see all over in SE Asia. We booked... More

We wandered into Smokin' Pot for a beer one afternoon and were soon tempted by the menu - we decided on two dishes, fried chicken & potatoes and an amazing chicken amok. Delicious! We were so impressed with the food, we signed up for the next day's cooking class. It was so much fun! We were taken to a local... More

Good sized menu features local and Western food at this popular place. Was not terribly impressed by the local dishes, perhaps it's more of a cheap pizza/burger place. Surprised that it has a cooking school. You can do better than this (Battambang Restaurant just down the street, Handmade noodles just around the corner, Boat Noodle on the riverside).

Not a place I can recommend. The owner seemed burned out. I overheard him telling his staff that many tourists are so stupid. We had asked for a fan, which a staff very helpfully provided, but the owner switched it off twice - then we left. We didn't try the food, so maybe that's ok.

We ate here with four persons for dinner when the place was not crowded at all. Nevertheless, we had too wait a long time for the food which came piece by piece so that everyone had to eat alone. The food itself was bad to average. We ordered a fried fish which we soon called "dead fried". Never saw such... More

I took a cooking class here with Vannak, the owner. On that day, there was only one other person which was nice. Though Vannak is a bit quiet himself, he does answer all your questions. His English is very good so I had no trouble following his instructions. You can choose three dishes which you are going to prepare from... More
