We were in Phnom Penh the last few days before King Sihanouk's funeral so many restaurants in town, especially those near the Royal Palace and along the Quay, were closed. We felt fortunate that Sugar Palm was open. We were able to eat at a table upstairs on the terrace and found it to be quite pleasant.
The 4 of us shared fish amok (wonderful and one of the prettiest presentations of this dish in our travels), a grilled eggplant that was declared "fabulous", a curry and a banana blossom salad. All were tasty, but I avoided the salad as it had raw bean sprouts in it.
Service was quite pleasant. The kitchen was no more slow than any kitchen that is making food to order. Prices were a bit higher than other restaurants, but still low enough to be considered a bargain by western standards.
