Very good marinated beef sandwich and other services

The marinated beef sandwich is excellent. In general the food is quite cheap and good but it takes a bit of a time to get served. I mostly know the place for all other services provided: booking of taxi/buses/location of moto.

Two dishes have national significance in Cambodia; Beef Lok-Lak and Fish Amok. Having stayed in Cambodia for several months each of the last 3 years we have made it a personal mission to savor these dishes in as many of the local Khmer restaurants. To date Center Cafe comes out on top. For about $4 each you can enjoy the... More

It wasn't bad. The food was okay. I don't have a whole lot to say other than that. There are other restaurants that I would rather eat at so I doubt if I got back but there was nothing wrong with it.

Vesner the owner and his wife made it such a good 2 weeks for us, there was 18 of us there for volunteering and they did bbqs and cooking classes for free! They were so nice to us the whole time which made this basic hostel way higher on my list than some of the more luxurious ones! Thanks to... More

The breakfast was OK (nothing special) but we did buy our travel tickets (bus to Siem Reap) here and they offered a good price (but do expect to pay $1 more than when you buy tem directly from the bus company, it's always like that in Cambodia).

I ate here twice for dinner. Both dishes were so tasteful and yummi and prices are real bargains - USD 2-3 for traditional khmer dishes. When I was there it was very quiet, so do not go there for the atmosphere and not a place where I could spent a lot of time, but for eating, yep, just right.

A mixed review I am afraid. The food here was excellent, cheap, delicious and promptly served. I couldn't fault it and returned many times. However I would not recommend buying any bus tickets here. We did. The promised tuk tuk ride to the bus station did not eventuate (which we paid extra for). The promised Sorya bus turned out to... More
