“Lovely fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We ate here as it was close to our hotel. We had the spring rolls, sweet and sour soup with fish and fish amok. All dishes were fresh and tasty. Most diners were upstairs on the terrace which probably had more atmosphere than downstairs where we dined. Pleasant staff. Good value.

“Good value food and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We had dinner here the menu whilst not extensive was fine a mix of European and Cambodian with a bit of Fusion thrown in. Wine at reasonable prices.
We did have to wait quit a while for the food to arrive but maybe that is the style.

Overall a nice easy meal with no hassle and decent service.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Here we had the tastiest meal in over 3 weeks of travelling. Good food at a reasonable price. Very happy to recommend it. The chicken and ginger was particularly good.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The venue has a slick feel but there was very little atmosphere and it was full when we went. Good cocktails but service was very slow and they had no spring rolls left which was odd as two of the staters were spring rolls. The food looked good but was heavily laden with fish sauce, which some may like but was a bit too strong for our taste. One dish tasted like I imagine catfood might (a sort of pork mince stew that you dip vegetables into) and was hard to stomach. We probably chose poorly for our tastes but when there is such great food in other places in the city it did seem like a place which exemplified style over substance.
