Just drove 400 miles and found this gem!

Excellent all round. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The veggie choices are abundant. The food was not spicy but great flavors made the meal grealky special. My first experience of Cambodian food and definitely not the last.

Good authentic Cambodian food. Nice appetizers to share-good flavors. We shared several dishes such as a chicken curry, duck sausage and the Cambodian version of pad thai. Waitress was very helpful and did not rush us even though they were getting ready to close. This restaurant is right on Broadway near both the Marriot and Marriot Courtyard, close to Old... More

Had dinner here the first night of my arrival. Ordered the baked eggplant with diced shrimp and pork based upon some positive reviews on Yelp. I even ordered it spicy but I guess Cambodian food isn't that spicy? There were only a few pieces of diced shrimp and it was a bit overcooked. Eggplant was good but I expected more... More

Came here for a bite to eat and a drink with a friend after the bar exam. The owner was extremely nice and very helpful in selecting dishes. The service was attentive, and the food was very good. A pleasant surprise, and a good alternative to the chains in the area.

Went to eat dinner there -with a group of six. friends, We ordered one of each of the four vegetarian appetizers. Each one was excellent-especially the crepe and papaya salad. The vegetarian and the seafood entrees were enjoyed by all. I would expect everyone to return.

So, when some friends from out of town asked where we should eat near Jack London Square, my mind went immediately to Battambang. It was a tough sell, because there were other restaurants closer, one gentleman is a "steak and potatoes guy" and neither of the other two have ever tried Cambodian food. With a little negotiating, I convinced them... More

Must have is their chicken kabobs over rice,green papaya salad and their country land beer. Place is a little dim but its ok no one will attack you. Its located on broadway between 8th/9th st you might miss it if you're not paying attention.

Excuse the old carpet and stereotypical Asian restaurant decor and dig in to a wonderful meal. We grazed through most of the menu on three separate visits over 5 days and were thrilled with a papaya salad, fresh coconut water, tasty curries, and a jack-fruit/coconut milk custard that was the best desert ever to grace my tongue. The staff was... More

Batta Bong offers the best value in south Asian food I know. The streetside appearance is unassuming, but this small Cambodian restaurant is clean, pretty, and welcoming once you enter. Extensive menu and excellent service when the restaurant isn't too busy. Almost everything on the menu is priced between $8—15. Don't make the mistake of ordering more than one dish... More
