“Authentic Italian Panini in Cambodia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Just came back from an incredible lunch at Sandro. I live in Phnom Penh but I didn't know this place till today. The panini are just amazing, the ingredients all imported from Italy and the atmosphere cozy and relaxed. I can't honestly ask more...It feels like at home.
I will definitely go back for lunch in this week, I can't wait to try a new panini and the delicious potatoes.

“Perfect lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

One of the best lunch places in town, tasty quick and in a nice setting.
The panini and focaccias are delicious and with a good combination of ingriedients.
I love the few desserts in the menu.
The place is very clean and decorated with taste; service is quick and friendly.

“Exceptional!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

We are so disappointed that we only found this place on our last night. Everything about Da Sandro Panini Bar was fantastic. The decor is refreshing. The food is to die for, but most importantly the service is exceptional. We were lucky enough to meet the owners and they chatted to us like old friends. Do yourself a favour and visit to get the best slice of Italy in Phnom Penh. Don't leave without trying the focaccia bread!!!

“PANINI'S PARADISE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Cant believe i have been reading the word EXPENSIVE through the reviews in a place where the highest price for a DELICIOUS, TASTY AND ORIGINAL PANINI is 7,50usd! Have they actually be at Sandro's for real?
Been living in London and Geneva and you cant get even a bus ticket for that money, but thats Cambodia of course, here is Europe.
Regardelss of that, the food is really authenthic either homemade or imported from Italy's best known and reccomended producers (and that of course doesnt come for free), it is fantastic that some smart Italian guys have been so brave to bult up a proper Italian corner in the middle of Asia. In my 2 weeks there has been really a struggle to find any other Italian worthed to review, or to come back.
I hope to be back soon, to taste again my favoutite #Nello# delicious focaccia with sausage and stracchino cheese - really gnammy!!!!
Sat you are the best!

“Very disappointed !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Is this really the restaurant ranked n°1 in Phnom Penh or are all the commentaries from the friends of the owners?
The location is good (BKKI on street 63) and the place is decorated with taste. However, the portions are very small and the prices very expensive for Phnom Penh.

We went there with my friend to see this brand new restaurant that was so well-rated on tripadvisor. I had a Sandro panini and my friend an Olly. It was good for a panini in South-East Asia, with real italian ham and cheese. But don't expect to have a real meal. The panini are small and the sides tiny.

We were very disappointed (and still hungry).

Good point: the staff is very friendly and kind.

Dear Talla2A,

there is no answer to the opening sentence of your review...

Looking at your profile as member of this communitiy we would question you: did you create an account just to badly review us? Why are you doubting of the honesty of all other reviews? That's not nice towards all other guests that spent some time to review our place.

However... we do respect your opinion, but we don't agree we such strong statements...

As, on the other side, we welcome your appreciation about the quality of the panini and the products... that's a fair comment..

Thanks!
