We have been to this restaurant a few times and it never fails to deliver on service and food. Prices are very reasonable and no problem taking leftovers home. This restaurant delivers some of the best Asian food in Auckland

We had visited Cambodia and spent some time there enjoying their lovely food. To find a restaurant which was close to the flavours we experienced in Cambodia was great.

Hidden gem this place. Great menu and selection, and probably pretty unique too. Not the best service and the portions are small.

We have been to this great restaurant countless times over the last 10 years. And the warmth of the greeting from the hostess has never diminished. And of course the food is still wonderful. Tasty, fresh, interesting. After a shared entree for the three of us and three mains we couldn't eat it all. And I tried really hard! This... More

Good food and okay service. The takeaway portion size can be pretty small but not too bad for the value. It is a hidden gem.

We are very lucky to have this awesome little Cambodian restaurant just up the road. The hostess is charming and greets us like familiar friends even though we have only been a few times. Although it takes a while to wade through the extensive menu there are some great Cambodian classics along with staple dishes to suit all palates. The... More

This is my second visit to this restaurant. We found the food excellent except we were a little disappointed in the duck salad. The salad was great but the duck was a little on the tough side. All other dishes were excellent. The service is great. They are attentive without being pushy. I am giving it four stars as the... More

We visited Sopheara after reading the many good reviews but was generally disappointed. The water tastes like it had chlorine in it. We waited for an hour and they only managed to get two spring rolls onto our table, the restaurant wasn't even busy! Tables that came later than us had food on their table. Wouldn't come back again.

We had not been to this restaurant for some time, but visited again on Saturday night to celebrate a friends birthday and I have to say we were sorry we had not found the effort to visit. The food was outstanding, in fact the prawns in red curry sauce is probably the best dish I have eaten, ever, anywhere, and... More

Magnificent tastes of South East Asia tantalize your taste buds at Sopheara's & the service is great..only a small restaurant but well worth the effort in visiting. Sopheara's won the best Indo-Asian award a few years back. We find ourselves going back as much as possible. This is a Cambodian Restaurant. Also the music is really soft so you can... More
