The concept of Smile is fantastic for the disadvantaged youth of Cambodia. I visited twice, once in a group of 12 for dinner and again the next morning for breakfast. Pros: Great location along the river. The waiters were very smiley and eager to please Great is of apace within the restaurant, offering both inside and outside seating. The English... More

We were staying in Mekong Hotel so this was the closest one we could find. The reviews are what enticed us to come here and they were absolutely correct. Great food and diverse food options. They've got stroganoff, pasta, amok, lok lak's, salads, burgers, steaks and desserts. Highly recommended if you're missing western food.

I visited Kampong Cham on a cycling tour of Cambodia and our group visited the Smile Restaurant for dinner. The food was delicious. We tried about 5 dishes between us and they were all fresh and flavoursome, but the best thigns baout this restaurant is its cause. The Smile Restaurant employs vulnerable and orphaned children and teaches them hospitality skills.... More

Arrived in the town after a long crappy bus ride and eating street food all day. Our guide tells us we should try out SMILE. I had a Khmer vegetarian curry and it was tasty and $3. Anyone into complaining should go elsewhere, they are probably spoilt westerners anyway. I will return for dinner and breakfast too.
