This restaurant was a top pick in Lonely Planet se we thought we'd give it a go. Downstairs is a pleasant open plan roofed 'garden' restaurant with trees and plants and a relaxed atmosphere. It was empty and we were ushered upstairs to a an aircon room which, apart from the 'sit on the floor' cushions had no vibe or atmosphere. Oppressive 'dentist room' white walls and the strongest stench imaginable made us very uncomfortable. It smelled like rotting fish. I think it may have been the fermented fish sauce that is popular in Cambodia but whatever it was it made me and my friend feel nauseous - we are not sissies and we tried to sit it out, I kept thinking I'd get used to it but 10 minutes was all we could stomach and we asked to go downstairs where the air was cleaner and the setting more agreeable. They we a little reluctant as they said bugs were falling from the roof. To be honest this didn't bother us (told you we weren't sissies) and we proceeded to order. Now if you are adventurous, like us, you will be delighted to see 'burning sweet pigs uterus soup' however after the smell upstairs we didn't feel like trying anything too 'out there' and went for crab noodle salad and lotus leaf salad. The lotus leaf was so bitter it tasted like eating a bug and the crab was raw (deliberately). We hardly ate anything. The waiter who served us was lovely. Give this a go if you can stand the smell and like adventurous cambodian menus.
