Value for money

This is Cambodia's original cooking school. The restaurant serves a variety of meals. The proportions are large and delicious. They are also great value for money. The staff are very friendly.

Like many things in Cambodia you find mixed reviews. You have to keep your heart large and take it as it comes. We already live like this and life is good. That said we had a great time at Smoking. We were taken to the place on the map by our tuk tuk guy. Turns out the map was out... More

I had a great time at Smokin' Pot. First we set off to the local market with Vannak which is an experience in itself; live snakes, cat fish and freshly prepared coconut cream. Then back to cook, we were really impressed by the freshness of everything; no oyster sauce (msg) is used. Vannaks english is great and he answered our... More

Very good food, superb family. The owner is a lovely guy. I did a cooking class with him, it was worth every penny. We also stayed at their guesthouse which is nice too.

Seemed very odd, but we were dissuaded from entering on two occasions. So couldn't get a meal... While there was talk of other groups coming, I've never seen many eating there as I pass by. Very odd!

It was just my husband and i so very laid back and informal.We were taken on a tour of the market and cooked 2 delicious dishes(fish amok and a traditional chicken stir fry) which we ate for lunch. Vannak was very personable and chatted about not only Khmer food but... More

Today my boyfriend and I went to the smokin pot cooking class and it has been my favourite thing I have done in Cambodia so far! Firstly this cooking class is only $10 and is so worth the money! You choose 2/3 dishes of your choice from the menu or just go for the traditional Cambodian dishes that Vannak can... More

Vannak is great. He organized a class for just me on short notice. Great conversation about Khmer cuisine and where Cambodia has come from and where it is going. He also organized my bus to Siem Reap and picked me up on his moto early in the morning. Typical Cambodian friendliness and hospitality. The restaurant is great too, some of... More

We were invited buy a guy to come to the rooftopbar. There is a chill vibe; hammocks, pillows and you can play your own music. There is a pool table. The cocktails are good too.
