We had 4 starters, 4 main courses, 2 desserts, and a bottle of white and red wines. A bottle of Cloudy Bay cost $125 while Le Meridian charges only $80, way too much so we didn't order.
We didn't opt for the local seasonal set menu (~$30) as it appeared quite ordinary e.g. banana bud with pork.
If you crave for European taste you would be greatly disappointed as all dishes are fused with Asian ingredients.
The quail with fried wonton wrapping, noodle (not anglehair as written but udon), and sesame oil is very bland and boring. Tasted like Chinese fusion rather than Cambodian. Big disappointment!!!
The risotto cake with tomato chutney is a mismatch as the sauce overpowered the rest. The chutney tasted like tamarind sauce which is excellent with grilled prawns or fishes.
The chef obviously tried to make the menu exotic to westerners like adding pomegranate to racks of lamb which does not complement the meat at all.
The desserts we had were the chocolate cake and mango with ginger ice cream which were alright.
The bill was $298, really bad value for money. Again and again, we should have learned the lesson that fusion food is mostly not a very good idea.
For local dishes go for FCC, for a not too fusion go for L’Angelo
