Our menu features 'small plates' of good quality, fresh, interactive ingredients, which are made for sharing in the true 'communal manner'.We want our customers to "graze", share and expand their taste sensations. The wine selections also offer many by the Glass .Our Location is near to the Sofitel,Almond Hotel and Naga World - a bit off the "beaten track" ergo the Lost Room.We are Non-smoking inside and have out side seating for those in need .Unfortunately Credit Cards are not accepted at this stage and We are often closed during major Cambodian Holidays.

“High expectations, not disappointed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

We've been meaning to go here forever, finally made it and had a great experience! The owners and staff were really nice and helpful with ordering. The dining room is small and intimate. We started with cocktails, and they had no problems adapting a cocktail without alcohol, as I'm pregnant. Our favorite dish was the goat and feta cheese dip, it was amazing! We enjoyed everything we had, we shared the kangaroo filet, cauliflower mash, grilled pumpkin, and roasted potatoes with Parmesan and bacon. Fresh ingredients, prepared nicely. Our expectations were high because of high reviews and friends' recommendations, and our expectations were met! Thanks!!

“Have the Tuk Tuk Driver phone them.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Actually we sussed it out in daylight but you wont find a sign until it opens. From walking in,through the whole process of having a meal to leaving, this restaurant exuded quality. While Wendy is obviously the driving force she is backed up by very able staff. Make sure of a table by booking as this establishment is very popular.
The range of food is wide but on this occasion we took Wendy's recommendation and were totally satisfied.
Part of the attraction for me was that it was tucked away in the back streets and getting there was not quite as easy as heading for the riverside.

“What a little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Small and tucked away in a residential street, ask for clear directions, but well worth it.
Food and service both fantastic, menu can be catered to suit (1/2 dishes so you can taste more than one), lamb and pork were sensational.
Don't miss this gem.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I love going here and asking them to order for me, they know their menu (it changes from time to time) and have a great sense of what I like to eat.
