“A very nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Food is good (try chicken with orange and their home made potato chips) and tables on the balcony are very nice. Just a few minutes walk from the Market. I suggest it!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

We were greeted by extremely friendly staff and the food was very tasty! The kitchen was spotless and the place had an all round great atmosphere. Definitely recommend the veggie burger!

“Not impressed...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We were quite looking forward to having diner there because the place looked nice and some of us had heard good things about it but in the end we were very disappointed with the place. Yes, the decor etc is nice but the waitresses are really unfriendly and grumpy. It just didn't feel nice to be there. Food was ok but not amazing either.

“Tourist cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This cafe/restaurant gets good write ups and I saw it was recommended as having the "best" food in Battambang. This is patently wrong as Battambang is the food bowl of Cambodia and has some of the best asian food in the world available at a multitude of welcoming and relatively cheap locations. The food and service are good but are very much in the Thai style with the menu standard if you have ever travelled in the Thai tourist spots.

the tables are outside on a verandah and it is nice to sit and take use of the free wi-fi sipping an ice-cold drink when it gets hot in the afternoons.

However, my advice is look further than this place and don't be afraid to enter any of the many small Khmer hostelries where you will be made more than welcome and get some of the best food and hospitality in the country.

“super friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This was a friendly, clean place with great food. Down stairs there is a nice little jewellery store where I bought a couple of rings as well.
