“Service Slow. Food was overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Good escape from heat in Russian Market. Downstairs was ok. Friendly service, but wait staff was slow and not attentive, food was slower.
Overpriced targeted mostly for tourists. There are other options nearby.

“Good location near Russian Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The chicken wrap was excellent. White wine was reasonable for the price. Good cafe atmosphere. Prices good and staff helpful. Good a/c upstairs. Downside: Food took some time because they were busy. Overall very good.

“Good veg options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Very good veg options and western food, in an otherwise purely khmer neighbourhood. Price is a little high, but it's pretty good.

“Relief from the heat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

This cafe is certainly well-placed in relation to the Russian Market. It is a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle after a good day of shopping at the Market, or relief from the heat before venturing into the Market.

The food is not very affordable and the quality is so-so. It is an NGO, but not a necessary visit. It does have free wifi though.

“Very average, food and drink overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The food here is very ordinary, the menu sounds nice but when served was disappointingly bland. It's all 20% overpriced and the service is pretty scratchy, although it's an NGO and they offer a leg-up to disadvantaged kids so fair play for that. Much better food, service, atmosphere and value at Jars of Clay just down the road.
