This is an NGO run restaurant training street youth in waiting, cooking and other skills, which will help them to integrate into the society. It is a great concept and the restaurant is staffed by students and teachers alike.
It is a large place with nice interior and very good customer service. The menu comprises of normal dishes and series of tapas, which are larger than Spanish tapas making one tapas and one side dish sufficient for a full meal. Having said that, I found some of the dishes to lack flavour.
The prices are rather high, although not extortionate. Compared to western prices, it is still cheap and given the social background of the enterprise it goes on a good cause. However, unlike in other NGO run restaurants such as Veiyo Tonle, the clientele is purely tourists, which does not make for a nice atmosphere.
