1/2 street that this coffee shop is on is a little dingy. However inside is clean. The service is good. The vibe is very indy American feeling and the coffee is VERY GOOD. Best in Cambodia!

I went to Kinyei every day that I was in Battambang. The coffee is exceptional no matter which way you take it - I'm a soy flat white girl and each and every coffee was a delight to drink. The staff are lovely and always up for a chat, as are most of the local expat regulars. Good wifi and... More

This place is not fancy but the coffee is the best. If you are in Battambang treat yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Seriously the best coffee! I've been visiting this cafe for the past three years on my trips to Battambang. The coffee is outstanding and as a result theses young guys keep cleaning up Barista awards in Cambodia and neighboring countries.

A lovely little cafe tucked in the side street with great coffee and a nice chill out space. The street coffee is great with a really nice Cambodian twist!! The toastie was pretty good also.

From reading the plethora of rave blogs on Kinyei Espresso Bar it seemed like it would be the kind of eccentric place I cotton to. I like funky, down home joints and Kinyei certainly is funky, nearly ramshackle. So its ambiance was spot on. Now for the highly touted food fare. I ordered the banana cake and Cambodian coffee.

We went for a coffee here after our bike ride with Soksabike. Nice little place with probably the best coffee I had in Cambodia, definitely worth a visit

We came here to excited to try this place after reading all the great reviews. It was a total let down! The food was overpriced and we had to order 2 breakfast items each to get enough food (a first for us after traveling for a year) because the portions were so small. The shakes had way too much milk... More
