Description: Metro Hassakan (formerly Cafe Metro) is the place to meet in Phnom Penh. Stylish and cosmopolitan, it offers Asian fusion small plates and expertly mixed cocktails, while floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a wraparound patio provide an unobstructed view of the river. Start the day at Metro with a classic breakfast and continue it with a selection of more than 20 small plates like Chinese crispy short ribs, Tequila black pepper prawns, Peking duck pancakes and king oyster mushrooms. The menu is a stylish fusion of Asian and Western dishes to please any palate.

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

Great Lunch/Brunch menu. We met some friends with a young baby and the waitresses took it in turns to look after the little one to let his parents enjoy their food. Nice, polite service. I had a Pate & Brie sandwich and my husband ordered the Spinach Benedict and both went down a treat. We would definitely go back again.

“Nice food - rude and obnoxious service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

Meet colleagues for drinks and dinner. Sat outside, thing started well but just seemed to go downhill. The service here in the past has been hit and miss but one young lady was particularly obnoxious, my female colleague asked for cigarettes and the waitress barked "wait" we where all stunned.. We waited and nothing. We asked again.. We did not get anywhere so we bought from the street.

Asked for a menu and a party of four received one menu, we asked for more and our request was greeted by a sigh .. So we just decided to share. Food was good but I cannot stand bad service, this one waitress was particularly aggressive to the female member of our group.

Ultimately we felt like an incovince to her, like there was some problem with us being there.. Not a pleasent experience, really soured our meeting and did not find our time there to be the constructive business meeting we had planned.. Funny as Metro is frequencted by business people which was part of our draw there, don't mind paying the prices but we expect the service to match.

“First rate dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2015 NEW

This French-style bistro could easily have been in Paris, judging by the decor and fittings. Most of the clientele were actually just drinking but we had a first rate dinner here. Most of the menu was western, though there were Khmer options. We, unusually, ate western with a lamb shank at US$14 and roast chicken at US$9. The food quality was very good, the portions were large, and the service was fast and attentive. They even had some decent wine at US$4 per glass.

We would happily recommend this restaurant.

“Total Quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2015

How ever runs this place, has a very good eye on what is Quality and what his clientele want. A great place to meet for business or just to take the family for an evening meal. Food is good and so are the drinks. It is Western prices, but western quality too.

“Stylish Bar & Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2015

Metro is a stylish modern bar & restaurant with great waitresses who serve a large menu of cocktails (& other drinks), good food at reasonable prices (for an up-market Phnom Penh establishment) e.g. a main of spicy pork ribs for about $9 and the music is good too! It's well located right on the riverside and you can enjoy sitting outside under the verandah or inside in the aircon.
They do breakfast (I can recommend the eggs benedict), lunch & dinner.
Definitely worth a visit if you are in town for a couple of days.
