Bad food, bad service, bad vibes. Good location, what a waste of a good location. As bad as it is, maybe when a new business moves in there, they can use the good location.

Got some completely dry and burnt uneatable chicken. Owners comment: I will tell the kitchen. No excuse, no offer to change. Stay away.

Great food, great staff, great prices. We ate here twice and both the food and the service were consistently good. I would recommend the burrito specifically

We spent a month in Cambodia and Why Not was by far the best place we found to eat. The omelettes are fantastic for breakfast. The coffee is great. The beer is cold. We loved eating breakfast and dinner there and felt like welcome old friends with the freindly hospitality of owners Stefan and Mel. You couldn't ask for a... More

A nice little pub, reasonably priced and friendly service, lovely chatty Aussie owners. No pressure or rush - they are happy to have you there. Didn't eat but heard great rumblings from those that did. Enjoy!

If you need to take a break from all the nastiness that makes up Paradise Beach, this is the place for you. Unlike many of the other restaurants in the area, this was not a place to pick up a prostitute, just good old fashioned food on this menu. We discovered this restarant on our first day and returned over... More

A nice simple bar / restaurant with a great location, fantastic food, drinks and staff. I made sure to have at least one meal there each time I was on the mainland, the owners were always really friendly and willing to sit down and have a chat. Very nice touch.

We absolutely loved 'why not,' were sad we only had a chance to eat here once. Food was above spectacular especially for price. My friend got the veggie burger, outstanding, pumpkin based veggie burger. I got the Khmer Chicken curry that was pretty good but after tasting my friends veggie burger I wished I had gotten that. The owners were... More

Don't miss Why Not on Serendipity Beach Road. Despite being owned and run by two Aussies (Stefan and Mel) this is about the friendliest, happiest and nicest bar and restaurant you'll find in Sihanoukville. Good, cold beer, great prices and, best of all, a Cambodian chef who really know what he's doing. I eat here 4 times in a week... More
